Most people are into chicken production. However, there is one very lucrative business that you can run in your backyard- rabbit production. Rabbit meat is in high demand at major hotels and top class restaurants, as well as among households in your own community. Those who are into rabbit production confirm that it is not a difficult project to run. It is also more profitable than chicken production, as rabbits are heavy breeders: one female rabbit can produce around 72 offspring in a year!
Besides, feeding rabbits is inexpensive, they can grow entirely on commercially sold, or if you have access to greens, like discarded cabbage leaves, or even wild grass and leaves, it’s enough to sustain rabbits.
