You can substitute rabbit in any chicken recipe. However, it tends to dry out quicker than chicken, so be sure to cook it on a lower heat and covered if necessary.

Rabbit is an excellent meat. It is very similar to chicken in a lot of ways, but is easier to process and has more meat on the carcass. Plus rabbits are far easier and quicker to breed than chickens. Rabbit meat is an easy addition to a sustainable food production system.

We used to have 2 milk nannies, and they kept us and our friends in milk.  They had to be milked twice a day, which put a strain on trying to take a vacation, but you get all the milk, cheese, yogurt, and ice-cream you can eat!
