Here is a list of medicinal herbs and their benefits for raising rabbits for healthy fur, pain relief, calming, stimulate appetite, diarrhea, weepy eyes and many more conditions. Rabbits are probably one of the most versatile and productive homesteading animals. Rabbits can be raised for meat, fur and their poop is an amazing fertilizer that does not have to be aged and can be immediately placed mixed into a garden.
