If you want to start your own business then this news is for you. You can start rabbit farming by investing a very less amount but in return earn a good profit. You can start this business with an investment of about Rs 4 lakh & get Rs 8 lakh in return. Let me tell you that rabbit rearing is not only profitable but enjoyable too

Earn regular income by rearing Rabbits on a Small Scale

Total Expenses

  • This business of Rabbit rearing has been divided into units. 

  • There are seven female and three male rabbits in a unit.

  • Suppose the initial level for farming is 10 units, then it costs around Rs 4 lakh to 4.50 lakh.

  • This includes tin sheds around Rs 1 to 1.50 lakhs, cages Rs 1 to 1.25 lakhs, fodder, and about Rs 2 lakhs spent on these units.

The Male & Female rabbits are ready for breeding after about 6 months. A female rabbit gives birth to 6 to 7 babies at a time. The pregnancy period of a female rabbit is 30 days and in the next 45 days, the baby is ready for sale after being about 2 kg.

This is how you can Earn

  • If a female rabbit gives birth to an average of 5 children in a day, 350 rabbits will be produced in 45 days.

  • A rabbit unit is capable of producing babies in about 6 months. There is no need to even wait for 6 months in this. 

  • A batch of children prepared from 10 units of rabbit in 45 days is sold for about Rs 2 lakh. 

  • They are sold for meat, wool, etc.

  • But keeping in mind about mortality, illness, etc., assuming an average of 5 pregnancy periods, then rabbits worth Rs 10 lakh are sold in a year, whereas if the cost of fodder is 2 to 3 lakh rupees, then a net profit of Rs 7 lakh can be earned. 

  • Although in the initial year, taking out a total investment of Rs 4.50 lakh in this, even then there is an income of Rs 3 lakh.

You can also start a business by taking a franchise if there is no ability to take many risks, and then new people have the option of taking franchisees from many big farms. Through this, all kinds of training will be given from rabbit breeding to marketing.
