I'm really excited to find your method! Squeeze the excess water from the pelt. There are also many popular dry TV shows like The Office and Arrested Development. Any animal with fur can be tanned this way. Take the skin down when it is almost dry. If its a rabbit, squirrel, chipmunk, woodchuck, or any other small or medium animal, I would go ahead and gut it (clean it), find a nice dry rub or BBQ recipe, and cook it. about 1/4 inch from the end of the pelt. Repeat the action until you see it is clean.

Once your bunny reaches about 6 months old, you should not give it alfalfa hay as it is not grass … How do u save the tail?

Things you'll need:•Rabbit skin•Sharp knife (Not razor sharp)•Plywood board- 22"X22" or so•Staple gun or small nails•5 gallon trash can or bucket (must be plastic, metal reacts to the chemicals)•Plain salt (non iodized)• Denatured alcohol •Neatsfoot oil•Metal screen, about 1/2" X 1/2" squares•Water (filtered or not, well water works fine too). if for some reason the pelt is stiff at the end, let it sit in warm water for 3-4 minutes (completely submerged), oil it again, then wash it again. I think the six hour idea may be because if you left a big pile of grass it would go damp and mouldy on the bottom, where the air doesn’t circulate – like grass clippings on a compost heap.
Dried urine can build up on the fur, causing a bad smell and leaving the rabbit uncomfortable. Rabbit numbers have plummeted over the last two years North of the Border due to bad weather, although where we run courses they are abundant.
I have personally found that feeding wild plants to my rabbits instead of cultivated vegetables such as spring greens, cabbage, broccoli etc. Then take some neatsfoot oil and work it into the skin. Unlike domestic rabbits who are not so discerning, a wild rabbit will never poison itself. 2. Look for green healthy looking ones without blemishes (or bugs) and collect them on a dry day.

Grass (like horses/cows eat) is best for a rabbits main diet and you can dry that yourself if you can’t get it fresh all year around and can’t get hay (dried grass).
If you think about it, hay is just grass that has been cut, left spread out in a field to dry out and turned occasionally to let the air circulate! It’s unusual for a hare to live long as a baby. Grass (like horses/cows eat) is best for a rabbits main diet and you can dry that yourself if you can’t get it fresh all year around and can’t get hay (dried grass). The ideal rabbit diet consists of approximately 80% hay & grass, 15% greens (this can be vegetables, wild plants or herbs) and 5 % dry food (i.e. I use a cardboard box, it won’t sweat like it could in a plastic bag if it’s still got any moisture left and it gives it a bit more protection than a paper bag as dry forage will crumble if you squish it too much.
Don’t mistake it as being a hare because of the color. You can dry leaves in an oven on the lowest heat setting, or better yet, save energy and just use the leftover heat after you’ve cooked something. Also, if your rabbit is an adult and does not like bathing in water you can also dry bathing it.
