Breeding: Wild rabbits in New Zealand can start breeding at the age of two to three months old. Their gestation period is 28-30 days. They are pregnant within 12 hours of dropping a litter.
The saying breed like rabbits didn’t come from nowhere.
Food: They eat approximately .1kg of grass per day, love garden type bushes and vegetables.
An old English saying on the food intake; three rabbits to a hare, three hares to a sheep.
So going by that, for every nine dead rabbits there is the food for another stock unit…
