70k all together tho its very huge and the price for constructing a hutch might be lower/higher depending on location.

For starters..... A standard hutch can also be build at the range of 20k or less

You can drop your question if you're still confuse
Thanks
I kept just five rabbits, I noticed they can only reproduce better when they are on ground I.e where they can dig holes. How will you deal with that?

I don't understand your question well....

1. Do you mean that they only mate when on the floor or they litter on the floor ?

2. Do you have a hutch for them or you practice colony format of keeping rabbit ?

Answer sir

Reasons to Raise Rabbits


1. Rabbits are Low Maintenance. - One of the best things that I like about rabbits is the fact
that they are relatively low maintenance animals.


2. Rabbits are Quiet. - Yes I said it, rabbits are actually one of the quietest types of animals
on the planet


3. Economical. - Breeding rabbits can indeed be economical, even profitable if you put forth
the time and dedication


4. Rabbits can indeed “Multiply like Rabbits” - Although struggling breeders will
sometimes tell you different, rabbits can indeed multiply very quickly


5. Rabbit Meat is Healthy. - Even if you never plan on eating rabbit meat yourself, if you
breed rabbits you can rest assured that there is a market for rabbit meat in case you
need to sell off stock or culls (you just need to have a good marketing plan in place- keep on following this thread for information on selling rabbits)


6. Rabbit Manure is Valuable. - Believe me when I say that rabbit manure works great as a
fertilizer! Apply it to your garden and watch your plants bloom or bag it up and earn a
little spending money off of it. 


7. Rabbits Can Make Great Pets. - Rabbits can indeed make great pets- just make sure you
choose the right breed or you might be disappointed!


8. Self Fulfilling. - When you successfully breed rabbits you will most likely begin to feel self-
fulfillment in your accomplishment (There is something about watching your rabbits
grow that gives you a good feeling inside)


9. Chance at Showing. - If you plan on showing rabbits, you will most likely have a great
time and make some new friends!


10. Great Learning Experience. - It would literally take an entire book to tell you about
everything I have learned from raising rabbits!


11. Raising Rabbits is Fun. - Most importantly raising rabbits can be a fun enjoyable
experience as long as you do your research ahead of time

Choosing a Purpose

I believe the first step to beginning your rabbit adventure is “choosing a purpose”. There are five main
purposes for which people raise rabbits. I believe it is important to decide which category you would like
to fall into before getting started. It is completely ok if you fall into more than one category… I know
people who successfully raise rabbits for all five purposes.

Show
Meat
Pets
Fur
Profit



Example: When I began my rabbit project the purpose of the project was to raise quality show rabbits.
After about two years of raising rabbits, I began to sell quite a few rabbits to the meat market.
Eventually my project evolved and producing meat rabbits became one of my main objectives.
As you shall soon see, your main purpose will influence all aspects of your rabbit expedition.

Do you want to start Rabbit Farming business? Then here are few points which you may need to consider:
Rabbit farming is not at all an expensive venture. It doesn’t need much money like every other farming does. Rather it takes a lot of knowledge about the animal husbandry and how best to raise animals. You should start with a profitable rabbit farming business plan to gain high profit in short term.
How to Start Rabbit Farming Business?
Taking in consideration, the availability of breeding materials. To start investing in rabbit farming business, it is very much needed to know how to acquire your materials at a very low cost. The materials which are included are rabbit breeding cages, feeds, and concentrates, water nipples for rabbit drinking purpose, etc. are considered as the raw materials that are needed for the business.
Get the basic knowledge about rabbit care. It is very important to avoid unwanted loss due to diseases and high mortality. Know every necessary thing about rabbits, from their illnesses to their gestation period, feeding pattern and common diseases.
Get a rabbit farming business plan. The most important thing especially when you are going for a breeding on a commercial scale.
Your Rabbit House:The cages should be well constructed and placed where it gets protected from the rainfall and direct sunlight.
Feeding the rabbits: pellet Rabbit’s feed or grasses, shrubs, and herbs etc. They eat food at least twice a day. Fresh water should be given for 24 hours a day and all the containers should be cleaned on regular basis for the sake of health.
Production: They start breeding foreign breeds from the month of 4, Nigeria breeds is month 6 and give around 2-10 kits at once. The gestation period for a female is nearly 31 days.One rabbit can even turn around 40-60 kits at the end of a year. So, there will be rapid growth in the kits all around the year
