Rabbits

rabbitRabbits are favorites of 4-Hers around the world. They can live inside or outside, take up little space, and are easy to care for. With all rabbit projects, you will gain knowledge of sound breeding, feeding, and management practices, and develop integrity, sportsmanship, decision-making capabilities, and public speaking skills by participation in demonstrations, tours, and exhibits.

For Market Rabbit, raise at least one litter for market. Show at least one animal at the fair.

With Breeding Rabbit, own and care for one or more does for at least 90 days before exhibiting, and raise at least one litter. Show at least one animal at the fair.

Your Pet Rabbit project enables you to care for and show at least one doe or buck at the fair.
