According to wikipedia, 'the milk of rabbits is highly nutritious and among the richest of that of all mammals.'
(I think we need to do a survey on the milk of non-mammals now.)
This sounds like an excellent opportunity to peddle said milk to the superfood community. It could be sold in very small
quantities (say 250ml bottles) for very high prices.
Milking rabbits efficiently would require a bit of engineering, but the speed of rabbit reproduction and the cheapness of rabbits might more than make up for it.
Would be it possible to get more milk per unit of cash out of rabbits than from cows, or goats, or sheep?
In addition, rabbits can be more easily genetically modified than cows (faster generation time), so you could more easily get designer milk out of rabbits.

No survey necessary; non-mammals don't produce milk.
||What is milk though? Some birds produce a secretion from their crops to nourish their young and young cartilaginous fish eat their mothers' eggs. Then there are cephalopods and animals which produce nutritious liquids of other kinds.
