For example, rabbits take 3 - 4 pounds of feed to gain 1 pound of weight. In comparison, beef cattle take 6 pounds of feed to gain 1 pound of weight. That makes rabbits almost twice as efficient in the feed-to-meat ratio, saving you costs on feed.
Depending on the breed of rabbit you have, there will be different ideal butchering ages. They have litters all year round, which means you will have to be processing rabbits at least every 10 - 12 weeks, but possibly more often if you stagger your litters and get a second breeding doe.
Starting on one of the slits you just cut, use your knife to start separating the skin from the carcass and work down the leg until it meets the body.
