Rabbits

These quiet, docile animals require little space, making them a good choice for urban producers. They can be raised for meat or, in the case of angora rabbits, for fibre.

Rabbits need to be protected against predators in well-ventilated, draft-free housing. Keep in mind that they don't tolerate extremes in temperature.
