1. Begin with the end in mind.
As you start rabbitry, create awareness and market for your rabbits.
Dont just focus on rabbitry.
It is very easy for rabbits to reproduce but rabbits cannot sell itself. Begin with the end in mind.
2. Select the right breed. Note that small breed like Dutch are very prolific and they are good mothers but they are very slow in growth rate.

They are not okay for meat production. In order to get the best out of them, buy medium breed bucks and use them to mate Dutch Doe. However, if you have the resources to get all medium breed rabbits, you will be fine but they may not be as prolific as Dutch.
Never use a small breed Buck to mate a medium breed Doe. Invest wisely in exotic bucks. Your bucks represent the pictures of your future production.
3. Your housing system must be secured and comfortable. Good ventilation boosts growth rate.
4. Feeding right- understand the nutritional requirements of rabbits.
5. Your breeding method also determines your level of success. Your rebreeding interval must be defined. Some farmers remate their Does after 1month of birth (Extensive Breeding), some farmers re-mate after 2 weeks (Semi intensive) while some remate same day like Bella Rabbit World or after 2-3 days (Intensive Breeding). We call it Back to Back in Bella Rabbits World.
6. Routine Medication (organic or inorganic) is key in rabbitry.
Prevention is better in rabbitry than curative measures. Rabbits are very funny animals. They dont like to show sign of sickness when they are sick in order to prevent predators from attacking them.
Their sickness becomes obvious when they can’t keep it and it doesn’t last for more than 3 days when there is no improvement. At critical stages, they stay off food. This is the level of 50/50 chance.
In order to prevent this kind of headache, always ensure a clean environment and use garlic& ginger solution at least twice in a week, also try to give bitter leaves once or twice in a week.
These measures will save you cost of buying medications from Vet. Store.
7. Please when you are starting up your farm, remember to set aside Working Capital to be buying feeds and constructing more cages and paying staff cost.
