And finally, a rabbit owner who actually has a brain, and isn't torturing the rabbits with little cages they can barely fit in

Often, two male bunnies will fight each other (to the death). We separate the female to guard against undesired breeding.
For now, they are pets, but if the zombies come, it could all convert to food production easy enough.
You don't have to add fat to rabbit dishes, though many choose too. Fried like chicken, or in a stew, they cook just fine. We ate them often enough in Alaska. I do know my parents did use the skins too, nothing insulates like rabbit fur, though I'd have to learn the techniques myself (though I do have some pdfs and books that cover it).
But, for now, these guys (and the gal) are pets.
Dang! You did a fantastic job there! Glad to see they have so much room. What's in the rest of the stalls? I want a whole barn tour now!
