Backyard Bunnies Are the New Urban Chickens - GOOD Blog - GOOD

Backyard Bunnies Are the New Urban Chickens - GOOD Blog - GOOD: "There are many reasons for this. Mark Pasternak of the famed Devil’s Gulch Ranch explains, “The biggest reason that rabbits are a sustainable meat choice is that they eat forage, which is not useful for humans. This means that rabbits don’t compete with us for food calories.' Rabbits are also, as Meatpaper editor and co-founder Sasha Wizansky points out, an ideal choice for urban farmers."

Well, there are a lot of wild rabbits hopping around Denver so it must be good land for rabbits in general. This is certainly worth looking into some more.
My grandparents kept rabbits for food during the war year in Germany. Oma and Mom would go for a long walk when it was time for Opa to prepare a rabbit. If he didn't kill it with the first blow the sound it would make would it hard for them to eat it so that was why they went on the walk.

This certainly is worth more research.
