All about breeding rabbits
The rabbit projects project million million to be considered one of the most successful investment projects over the years for many of the characteristics characterized by the bunny for jealousy of animals collect all about rabbits breeding and how to optimize the exploitation of the animal to reach the highest production and profit abundant and will be exposed in detail in the following: -
The beginning of breeding rabbits?
Egypt is one of the oldest countries known to raise rabbits, found the inscriptions and images of rabbits in the tombs of the pharaohs and dates back to 2600 BC. The native habitat of rabbits is Africa and the Mediterranean Basin, and spread throughout the world and there are still rabbits in Egypt in the form of land represented In the mountain bunny, which has four types and is the origin of the Egyptian rabbits. Long ears, and body larger than the body of the rabbit municipal
The breeding of rabbits has become an industry in many countries of the world where researchers have worked to provide the best care for rabbits and how to provide them with appropriate shelter and to develop the process of reproduction and nutrition until they are produced intensively in the form of large productive projects, different ways of raising rabbit rabbits can be raised in open places or Free floating or housed in containers called batteries, all of which were to provide favorable environmental conditions to ensure access to the highest production.
Why rabbits are raised?
The reason for people's interest in raising rabbits is in the first place for its distinctive taste and ease of digestion and its low cholesterol content and high protein content, which is the first choice for the elderly and those looking for useful health food for the consumer
For rabbits, the rabbits projects have special luster. They are suitable for all levels of small projects or investment field for intensive economic production due to the low cost of care and the speed of the capital cycle
Rabbits for the consumer?
1 - pure white meat delicate fiber easy to digest
2 - contains a high proportion of protein up to 21%
3 - contain a small percentage of fat and cholesterol
4- Contains high percentage of vitamins and mineral salts
Eating one rabbit is equivalent to eating two chicken protein fructin double chicken protein
Rabbits for jam?
1 - Rabbit in the case of permanent reproduction gives birth to the mother of 4-7 times a year
2 - The ability to carry and lactation can be vaccinated during the day of birth
3 - mother given 5 - 12 babies in one abdomen
5 - The female produces 20 - 25 times the weight of meat in the year
6- The rabbits mature early on the age of 5-6 months
7. Do not need accommodation costs and occupy a small space
8. Rabbits feed on high levels of fiber and low grains
9 - rabbits do not need a high protein content in the relationship
10. High conversion rate of 3 - 3.5 kg feed per kg meat
11 - lactation period 4 weeks and up to a weight of 1.5 - 2 kg on the age of 10-12 weeks
The female is given 35-40 eggs per year, compared with 0.8 in cattle and 1.4 in sheep
The available rabbit strains in Egypt?
The choice of strain depends on the extent to which it is adapted to environmental conditions and is consistent with intensive breeding systems and economic production
Rabbits in Egypt are classified under small breeds, where the average male is 2 kg and the mother is 2.5 kg
In order to choose the meat strain, it should be distinguished by its weight, the quality of its meat and its rapid growth
There are two types of breeds available in Egypt and other local and international breeds and we will show them in the following:
First: Local rabbits:
Local breeds are characterized by their suitability to local conditions and their ability to resist the conditions of the environment in terms of water, food and diseases. Also characterized by good taste and abundant residues and is not characterized by stable color is very variable and varied and also weighing different
1- Municipal rabbits:
Small-sized rabbits vary in color, size and production characteristics, and are characterized by the quality of their meat and their acceptance by the consumer
2 - Mountain rabbits:
Rabbits are large in size and gray color and spread in the desert areas of Egypt. They are characterized by a large number of forerunners, including the Sinai, the rainforest, the weight of the rabbits of 3.5 - 4.5 kg, the number of foreclosures up to 8-12 in the slow and up to 4-5 in weaning due to weak milk production And the lack of illiteracy
3 - rabbits mixture:
Many breeds have been developed by means of modern breeding methods and mixing to improve the local strain. These breeds are red, black and white. These breeds are superior in their productive and reproductive characteristics to the municipality but have not spread in the intensive production of rabbits. The average number of lightness is 7 in the abdomen and is characterized by environmental conditions and disease resistance
Second World Breeds:
Breeds that have been imported for its productive advantage of rapid increase in weight, high conversion rates, resistance to disease and other improved factors but need to provide favorable conditions for low temperature and humidity
1 - New Zealand White:
In the United States of America, this type of starch is widespread in most countries of the world and is used in intensive breeding for the production of meat. The color of the fur is white and the color of the eye is red pink. The average male weight is 4-5 kg and the female is 4.5-5.5 kg. Weight 1.8 at the age of two months, but it is a high-fertility breeds and produces about 50 rabbits in a year and is characterized by its proficiency for young and quiet print is the most prominent in education
Originated in the United States as a result of the mixing of three types: Himalayan, Chinchilla, New Zealand White and white color except the nose and ear are brown or dark gray and the weight of the male 4.5 - 5 kg and females 5 - 5.5 kg, a high fertility up to about 84 rabbits Per year and up to 1.8 kg within two months
