    The Department of Animal Genetics and Breeding at the College of Veterinary Science in Rajendranagar has been working to breed different types of rabbits in a controlled environment. Their research has paid off, as they are now able to provide a variety of rabbits to those looking to start a bunny business in the city and surrounding areas. The rabbit farm is located just a few minutes away from Dairy Farm Cross Roads and consists of two large shades where different breeds are nurtured under the supervision of veterinary experts.

    Through crossbreeding three different rabbit breeds, the facility was able to produce two new genetic groups called APAU black and fawn back in the early 90s. Though these varieties are dwindling in numbers, the team is hopeful that they will be restored in the future to increase meat production and promote commercial enterprises. Rabbit meat contains about 20-22% proteins, is low in cholesterol, and is enjoyed by people of all ages.

    The farm currently has nearly 200 rabbits of five different breeds: Grey Giant, Flemish Giant, Californian White, New Zealand White, and Soviet Chinchilla. They are fed twice a day with a concentrate feed consisting of maize, wheat bran, and ground nut cake. A 3% mineral mixture is also added to their diet.

    Rabbit farming is a commercial enterprise that requires less investment compared to other types of farming like dairy, sheep, goat, and poultry. Rabbits are less susceptible to bacterial, viral infections, and zoonotic diseases. They also have lower death rates compared to other species and require minimal medical aid with no vaccinations mandated. The breeds available for commercial enterprises at the facility include Soviet Chinchilla, Flemish Giant, and Californian White.
