ATTENTION Meat Rabbit Breeders: If you are interested in selling breeding stock to new or expanding backyard meat rabbit raisers please ask to be included on my breeders list — one of, if not THE, very first rabbit breeders list on the Internet, and probably the only one specializing in meat rabbits. The most desired breeds are New Zealand and Californian, but other breeds, are also included. Breeders with meat-type goals such as large, frequent litters are preferred. Please e-mail me with the rabbitry's (if applicable) and owner's names, address (at least city & state), phone number (optional), list of breeds (you may include any non-meat breeds as well), and web site URL (if applicable). Also, indicate if you ship rabbits or not. If you have a website a reciprocal link would be appreciated. This service is completely free. Thank you!

Believe it or not, but raising rabbits has a connection to the amateur radio hobby. Having a deep freezer is an almost necessary piece of equipment for anyone raising meat animals, or, for that matter, anyone with a large family. The page author decided to get an extremely energy efficient freezer designed specifically with alternative energy usage in mind. A small, but slightly oversized, solar system was developed and installed. When FCC licensed in 1996, she decided to start using the excess solar electricity to power her amateur radio rigs. So, if it hadn't been for the rabbit hobby, it is likely that KIØDZ would not be as prepared to serve her community during emergencies as she is today.
Many folks interested in having a backyard meat rabbit operation are concerned with self-sufficiency. Being licensed as an amateur radio operator fits well with this goal as it provides an alternative to the common modes of communications.
