Don't think there is too much to it, should breed happily without too much help. We had rabbit every other Sunday when I was growing up. Better than eating some of the pork or chicken available in shops today

We used to house them in rabbit hutches, blocks, on straw, fed them hay along with carrots, sugar beets, oats, and fresh grass thrown in but that was the old fashioned way, small scale. I'm sure there is a good feed mix available now and I think some people keep them on wire or slatted floors
