Introduction to Buckingham Rabbitry 

Buckingham Rabbitry is a small backyard rabbitry. After retirement from full-time work, the rabbitry was started as a hobby. A trio of rabbits, two adult does, and one adult buck, established the beginning of a new endeavor. The rabbitry raises pedigreed red and broken red New Zealand rabbits, TAMUK rabbits, and TAMUK Composite rabbits. They focus on breeding for personal meat, replacement breeders, and other responsible owners. 

Currently, the rabbit breeding program consists of 9 breeders, 4 bucks and 5 does. Buckingham Rabbitry is one of only a few TAMUK and TAMUK composite breeders in the East Tennessee region. Consequently, their first-hand experience and enjoyment with the breed is beneficial knowledge to anyone looking to learn about the breed.

How Buckingham Rabbitry is Using Everbreed

Everbreed has been a part of Buckingham Rabbitry since its beginning, over two years ago. As previously stated, the rabbitry started with a breeding trio. Over the subsequent year the rabbitry quickly expanded to over a dozen breeders. At one point, the program included pedigreed New Zealand whites and reds, Silver Fox, TAMUKS, and TAMUK Composites. Manually keeping track of all of the rabbitry information is a daunting and time consuming task. So, a decision was made at the onset to utilize an inline rabbit management software program. After reviewing the available programs, both free and paid, Everbreed stood out amongst the rest. This is due to its versatility, functionality, convenience, and compatibility across multiple computer, tablet, and phone platforms.

Tracking Program Information 

Buckingham Rabbitry especially enjoys using Everbreed on a smart phone. This way they can make immediate changes and updates right in the barn at the rabbit cage. Later these changes can be reviewed on a desktop computer. Follow up decisions can then be made to enhance the overall rabbitry program. The “Task” feature is particularly useful for specific and timely reminders. For example, placing a nesting box in a gestating doe’s cage at the right time.

Impact on Rabbitry Management 

For continued success, rabbit breeders need to effectively manage their breeding, kindling, weaning, and growth rate among other things. Imagine doing this manually for a dozen breeders and almost 100 kits. The process would be stressful and very time consuming, not to mention the mistakes that can easily be made. Clearly, organization is key to an efficient rabbitry. Everbreed’s many features allow Buckingham Rabbitry to run smoothly and make sure they never miss an important task. Patrick says, “Without Everbreed, managing Buckingham Rabbitry would be chaotic and confusing”.

Rabbitry Goals 

Buckingham Rabbitry follows a twice-yearly doe breeding schedule. Others may choose to breed more aggressively to produce more kits, as long as their breeders are healthy and capable. Patrick mentions that, “Due to space constraints, Buckingham Rabbitry plans to maintain breeding twice a year. However, Everbreed could easily manage a much more frequent breeding schedule”.
