bunny numbers

O.k. just one.

According to thefarm.org, a doe (a female adult rabbit) will or can produce (via offspring) up to 1000% of her body weight in food per year.

Hmmm..

What does that mean exactly?

A full grown doe is about 8 pounds ( i think ).

1000% of 8 is 80.

Until you really sit and think about that statistic, you're thinking 8000 pounds, aren't you?  I know i was.

3 does could then produce 240 pounds of meat (i'm assuming this is without the bones, fur, etc.) in a year.

That's really not quite as impressive as what i originally thought that statistic meant, but still.....not bad.

They really should have just said "10 times her body weight" - to avoid confusion.  But i guess "1000%" looks more impressive.

We may need to review this statistic in the future.

In other news, some of my favorite people (as predicted) came to visit today.  We had a very nice visit, and then i had a very nice nap.

The bunny guy did not appear with bunnies, which is great because i napped instead of preparing cages.

Eager about bunnies.

Have to get up and really get ready tomorrow.

Thankfully the Lord is merciful.
