How are you doing your rabbits? I am under 2 minutes per rabbit, and I find there is zero smell when hanging. Poultry just smells every part, the processing and the poop. Ducks and Geese are better as there is not as much ammonia as land birds. But they still smell when processing.
I would put money that from start to finish you do not average 2 minutes per rabbit.

I find it much easier to hang them and way less chance of cutting yourself. And I did 5 yesterday in 30 minutes and that included clean up after which was wet sweeping of the floor and scrubbing the counter down. I just put some Conway and some George on and go to town. When I was bagging up after cleaning up they were still twitching. Its just practice, and depending on how my body is doing that day. Yesterday was a good day. Several months back I did 20 for a guy and that took forever because I was in the middle of a fibro flare at the time and was struggling to stand. But like anything the more you practice the better you get.

5 in 30 minutes is not less than 2 minutes per rabbit and that probably doesn't include getting out of the cage and dispatching them. I know a thing or two about rabbits. I cleaned a lot of rabbits in my day and had it down pretty good.

Skinning and gutting, its fast. The walking to get them from the cages to the popper into the shop that is another thing as I have a ways to walk with them quite a ways.

Not sure you caught that the 30 minutes included the cleaning up of the shop after, so scrubbing the surfaces down. Which took longer than the actual processing of the rabbits.

yes I caught it. But obviously prep and cleaning is part of the job.

Italian style braised Rabbit

Dredge rabbit pieces in seasoned flour ( S&P ).

Using olive oil saute till golden brown in an oven safe pan..........I like cast iron.

When browned evenly add about one teaspoon of crushed rosemary & three cloves of crushed garlic. ( can be adjusted to taste). Saute briefly being careful not to burn the garlic.

Now add a 50/50 mix of white wine & chicken stock. Adding the wine first to de glaze the pan then the chicken stock.
Fill to about half way up the meat & simmer on low, until the stock thickens.

Continuing simmering till required doneness/tenderness is achieved.

Note: If pieces are extra large or tough after simmering; Preheat oven to 325*, cover the pan & place in oven for 45 min to 1 hr.

This should yield a very tender dish.

Jim

8 bucks a dozen is a bit rich to be eating a lot of eggs.
Something going on with eggs .Price has tanked. Last week eggs were $6 Dozen at the local WalMart. Today $3.02 for 18 pak of large eggs.
. 1 Dozen boxes are $2 and change.

Is it economical to raise them for food? I could never make the numbers work.
I raised them yrs ago but gave up as they are too damn cute to kill .
