002 Chickens vs Rabbits for meat source on homestead

1st podcast in a long time and today we are talking about chickens vs rabbits for meat source on homestead.

One thing after listening to the show I never mentioned about what to do with animals in heat of summer and cold of winter. The rabbits have been fine over winter down to -10 here in Indiana, and they are under cover, and only covered with tarps over the whole cage area. No issues. The Chickens are in an enclosed coop and only a heat lamp, this is ONLY to keep egg production up. If we wanted to not get eggs over winter this wouldn’t be necessary. Summer, we add frozen 2L bottles of water to the rabbit cages only on really hot days. The chicken coop we take a pannel off and only have chicken wire to allow more air to circulate. So no real big issues.

 

Side note, ADD makes me all over the place, so be warned. I try to go by an outline and notes…ADD usually takes over. I will get better, I hope.
