Here is a video I made of her building her nest. It is kind of boring but as you can see, she was getting a neck workout. LOL

I've had quite a few bunnies as pets so I don't think I could ever kill them and eat them myself but it's something I would be willing to do in the future for my animals to eat.

That's funny because my experience is the opposite. I think they're cute but I have no qualms about killing bunnies for meat because mine were all asses... They weren't very nice bunnies. I HAVE met some VERY nice bunnies but not enough to make me love bunnies.

Every rabbit I have ever met has been an ass. I worked at a pet store where we had a free roaming store rabbit. She would ALWAYS steal my lunch (I ate in the backroom on the floor during the winter, we didn't have a breakroom) and was a complete jerk. Every rabbit I ever showed for sale or adoption kicked the living crap out of me, the stories go on and on. Rabbits just hate me. Even my breeders now are flighty and I have had them since they were little. I must give off an anti rabbit vibe. It makes killing them a little easier. What worries me is these babies I have now and getting too attached. I handle them everyday and I might end up keeping one if they are super sweet (as a breeder, no such thing as a free lunch!). 

 

Iorveth, more power to you. If you start breeding, let me know if you can kill the babies when they are of age. it's not easy, at least I don't think so.

Sprocket says that they stop being cute when they get pick enough to cause damage. Hahaha. 

Honestly, I don't think it should ever be "easy". I don't think taking a life should be easy. I don't think it's wrong but we should never be able to callously kill even a lowly meat animal. That's the way I see it.

I hunt and while I use every part of the animal I take, I do it for sport.The wild animal always has a chance to escape and survive.  But to kill something you have planned for, cared for, and raised? Nope, never easy.

I don't find it "EASY" but it is easier for me since I don't consider them anything but food.  I have a more difficult time culling chickens because they are my pets, essentially.  I don't do the culling anyway, Drew does it because I don't seem to possess the strength to use the wringer.  

 

I am always sad on processing days.  Its a conflicted feeling actually.  I'm sad but happy.

I made this video to post on a local pet selling Facebook page. Thought it wouldn't hurt to try and sell them. No biggie if I don't, they will just become dog food as planned. I may keep a tort female to breed with my Dutch rabbit (he really needs a girlfriend).
