I would love to lend a helping hand and see if I have the stuff. :) Let me know details as you learn them. With the rise in meat prices eminent I think this might suit my family well.

If you get a group for processing PLEASE let me know if I can join you. This is a piece of the puzzle that is missing before I jump in a purchase rabbits. Have already been collecting a few cages as I find them at yard sales. Hopefully after Christmas. My number is 480-292-5971.
