Default Breeding

Please think twice before you breed your rabbits. If you want to breed your rabbits because of the following reasons, please think again:
  • baby rabbits are cute - baby rabbits grow very quickly. What are you going to do with them when they lose their cute baby looks?
  • it’s a natural thing for rabbits to breed - this is a common misconception. Rabbits can lead perfectly healthy, happy lives without having babies. And what are you going to do with all the babies?
  • you want to sell the baby rabbits - there are already too many baby rabbits in the market, don't contribute to this problem. Rabbits do not cost much, so selling them won’t generate very high income unless you plan to breed your rabbit non-stop, which is very unethical! Please have pity on your rabbit)

Issues to consider if you still want to breed your rabbits:
  • Space – Once the babies reach 3 months, they are sexually mature and must be separated. Each rabbit needs its own cage, as even same-sex rabbits will fight
  • Rabbits multiply very fast – a female can get pregnant as soon as she has given birth, and the gestation period is only 31 days. That means a female rabbit can have 12 litters a year. Assuming you have 6 babies in each litter, in 1 year, you will have 72 babies from ONE pair of rabbits, if you fail to separate them. This again relates to the issue of space. Can you give each rabbit its own space to avoid accidental pregnancies?
  • Time – if you do not devote enough time to each of your rabbits, they will not be bonded to you. Will you have enough time for so many rabbits?
  • Good homes – if you plan to sell/give away the baby rabbits, bear in mind that good homes are not easy to find. Would you want to give your rabbit to someone who is not able to take proper care of it, neglects it and gives it a low quality of life? Someone who uses your rabbit as a breeding machine to make a bit of quick money?
  • Costs – good quality pellets, hay & vegetables are not cheap. And vet bills cost a lot. Will you be able to afford vet treatment for all your rabbits if they fall sick?

weoo.. not same here~
saya biakkan arnab saya, saya bagi orang susah/miskin pelihara, disamping dapat bantu orang tu, dia jugak dapat memberi anak˛ dan keluarga dia makan makanan yang sihat dan berprotein tinggi(meat/daging rabbit).
dari bergantung kepada ayam daging yang tidak sehat, baik dia pelihara arnab sendiri dan jadikan arnab pengganti kepada kebergantungan daging putih dari ayam.
FOA (food and algriculture organisation -UN) dah bantu banyak negara seluruh dunia dengan membekalkan arnab utk dipelihara sebagai sumber makanan sihat.
negara˛ asia tenggara(kecuali Malaysia) telah menjadi ahli kepada ARPA(asia rabbit production association), tapi malaysia masih tinggal kebelakang.

sangat sihat, daging arnab rendah lemak(1%), tinggi protein, serat.
beberapa bahagian organ dalamannya terbukti boleh menyembuhkan beberapa penyakit seperti asma/lelah, terdapat juga beberapa kajian yang daging arnab boleh menguatkan 'tenaga lelaki'.
ada hadis tentang memakan daging arnab, Rasulullah diberi oleh sahabat daging arnab yg dimasak, baginda makan.

Quote:
Diriwayatkan oleh Al-Imam Al-Bukhari dan Muslim bersama (متّفق عليه) daripada sahabat Anas Radhiallahu ‘anhu telah berkata: “Kami telah menggempur seekor amab ditempat Marr Al-Zhahran (dekat Makkah) dan saya tangkap akan dia dan saya bawa akannya kepada sahabat Thalhah dan ia sembelih akannya, kemudian ia kirimkan kepada Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam dengan warâ’ arnab itu (daging yang ada di atas-atas dari paha) dan dua pahanya, maka Rasulullah Shallallahu ‘alaihi wassalam menerima keduanya (yakni dari arnab yang telah dimasak itu)”.
Dari hadis yang shahîh yang tersebut di atas dan dari kata Al-Imam Al-Nawawi dalam Al-Îdhâh, maka binatang yang bernama arnab pada kalangan orang Melayu adalah nyata arnab itu binatang halal dimakan oleh umat Islam.

Tersebut dalam kitab Mathla’ Al-Badrain oleh Al-‘Allâmah Al-Syeikh Muhammad Ismail Daud Fathani dalam Kitab Makanan: “Binatang daratan yang halal setengah daripadanya: Unta, lembu, dan arnab iaitu binatang yang diketahui oleh ramai pendek dua tangannya dan panjang dua kakinya.”
Ini setengah-setengah dalil menunjukkan binatang arnab halal dimakan dagingnya dan halal menjualnya dan halal membelinya.

Adalah kerana orang-orang Melayu jarang makan arnab itu, maka arnab adalah ganjil pada selera orang Melayu.
Jika ada kegemaran pada penternak arnab, dan ada menjadi suatu mata pencarian hidup pada arnab itu, maka sayugialah orang-orang Melayu mengambil peranan mengedarkan arnab itu kepada ramai supaya menjadi suatu hidangan kepada golongan orang Melayu.
