Project ES826 has a Rabbit farm/coup/cage… whatever it’s called the point is they breed rabbits.
I couldn’t get much closer but if you look carefully you should be able to make out some ears on these hours/days? old baby rabbits.
Here are the kiddies:
Now here is a big rabbit….
Viewer discretion advised…
They tell the kids this is chicken. Seriously, they do. Because the kids take care of the rabbits.
After three months the rabbits are ready. I can’t work out how to say that nicely so I’ll just say ‘ready’. Every 22 days the project will kill enough rabbits to feed the kids protein for the next 22 days. This project will also trade with other projects for things like actual chicken.
The circle is almost complete. But watch Alex carefully, he’s not going to eat that piece, he’s going to throw it…
And the circle is complete…
Well ok, the circle is not really complete, unless that dog has some rabbit DNA or something but the circle is certainly over for that rabbit.
I did try some rabbit for the first time. And to me, it didn’t really taste much different from chicken.
Note to Compassion sponsors: Trust your guide on what you should and shouldn’t try. Families will often offer you food or drink which may or may not be suitable for, shall we say, delicate people like us Australians and Americans.
The guideline I have on drinks is, bottled water or bottled/canned soda only. Or if drinking soda from a fast food restaurant, don’t have ice. But please check all this with your host.
