*BOOK REVIEW* Storey's Guide to Raising Rabbits

This is the first of many book reviews to come. I will rate on a 5 star system, with 5 being a "must read", and 1 being a "don't even thumb through it". A blogger that I subscribed to (Brooks Hobby Farm)  advised me on books to read when I first started into this adventure. I took heed of the advise and asked Santa for many of her recommendations. Her advise: Any of the Storey's books that fit your intentions. Storey's Guide to Raising Rabbits is where I started, after all, you have to start somewhere. Knowledge is truly power.

5 out of 5 stars.
This book is a must read if you think you may or are pursuing raising rabbits. This is not a "how to" book for the soft, fluffy, gentle named pet in the corner of the living room. This book is written strictly on a farm supply basis, mostly meat. It details from beginning to end what to expect and how to plan to be successful in your endeavor. It starts out telling you how to set up your rabbitry, select the right breeding stock, maintain your breeding stock, selling any rabbits you wish, and eating the rest. The book is very well written and an easy read.
Any questions you have as far as the book is concerned, I will answer promptly.

  1. I've never met a Storey's Guide to ... that wasn't absolutely great! We got Storey's Guide to Raising Turkeys and it's wonderful. Our poor old Storey's Guide to Raising Sheep has been thumbed through, sometimes in the middle of the night during a particularly difficult lambing, that it is falling apart. Fantastic books!!!
