Six kits, a mix of girls and boys.
Girls in pinks, boys in red.
This litter has had nary a hiccup. Been quite pleased watching them growing up.
Akara above and Aero Bar below had six kits. All are looking to be jap, though two I"m not sure about. Just hoping for not the odd colour of the last litter. Time will tell, I'll know more by Tuesday morning.
the sole survivor of a litter of three. Two were peanuts though who survived longer than normal. She's got a fairly plush coat, and I'm not entirely sure what colour she is. I'm suspecting she's a muddy cream. Pretty lass though.
Today I made some animals happy and irritated... :)
e. Rosie pictured above (named by the lad next door) was SO easy to tattoo and nail clip. She's a bit of a flightier bunny (not crazy just more prone to stand back with head up for flight)... but she was such a dollie.
Whereas Peek-a-mommy, my son's pet rabbit. uncharacteristically had a major cow! To the extent that she escaped from me! Crazy girlie. Normally she's as calm as a peach but today.. well... miss crazy pants. Thinking there had to be reason I checked her for signs of breeding readiness and voila~ She got a date with Shade. :) She'll be much calmer now by evening.
I did make a couple of goofs. Miss Sally (above) is now going to be called Naomi, and Miss Naomi is now going to be call Sally. Not a real big deal.. but I went with for tattoos (since I have an easy tatt and therefore have some flexibility in tattooing), the first two letters of their names. (this just for the most part I was flexible since Marilla got MR instead of MA since Marie got MA. Anyways, I'll stop rambling here.
Soldier got his first ever "date" today. I matched him up with Gina (black doe from Ally). Hoping to see results in another 31 days. I also bred Peek, Shake and Anaka. Anaka is currently raising a litter, but has two WEE kits left with her. She's not stressed at all and for the past two days has been Miss hormonal queen. This should settle her down and help her to focus on doing her current job of raising kits instead of running around saying Look at me. aren't I pretty?? Silly silly silly doe. :)
yesterday i got a phone call from a rabbit breeder who lives nearby.
Would I be interested in coming to look at her rabbits?
I said sure, you might have something I could use.
And she did.
O'brien's Soldier - sable point HL buck
O'brien's Anaka - blue/cream jap HL doe
Soldier is a Oct. 2011 buck, Ankara is Feb 2010 doe. She is well proven, he is not. hopefully he'll do the job nicely. I will be needing a replacement for Bandit, so hopefully he'll fill in the spot for me.
I have been breeding rabbits for a quite a few years. I thoroughly enjoy them as animals and think they make great pets. I also like to take some of them to rabbit shows to see how they measure up to the standards.
