14 kits were produced by Lem and Biscuit.
It's hard to believe but Biscuit is even more mellow with this litter in her big cage then she was before.
It's such a very very nice change.
Lem, who has been sold once, not picked up. Pending once, truck blew up on the buyer, so unable to come. Lem, has gone to a new home. He's been a lovely boy here. Started life being skittery at times, but settled well as he matured.
He's now off to a new home with 10 girlfriends waiting for him. He'll be a fine working rabbit.
Oh but a hopeful happy camper I am. :)
the picture above is Lem. I have a gal who lives stateside who is thinking to take him and Milkshake and two youngsters home. I am ecstatic! I did NOT want to have to cull this boyo to make room in my rabbitry and Lem is such a soft touch of a rabbit. Likes behind the head scritches and is just so easy to work with though he is annoyed at me right now because I have him in a too small cage.
another reason I am so happy is my lover boy Bandit will be moving into a pet home at the end of the week. My Mr. Smooshie face has a lovely pet home with a well experienced owner wanting to take him home. :) woot woot!
Another reason to be happy is Shimmer found a new home today. She is heavily pregnant but going to a well experienced home where she will become a retired breeder and pet for a lady and her daughter.
STILL looking for their new places
Biscuit and Lem produced 14 kits of which 11 made it to weaning. This is quite s scattered litter for size, all four does are bigger than the boys which I find intriguing. Anyways, the kits are now old enough to go to new homes.
Normally Biscuit has 13 kits, today she had fourteen.
They are a whole gambit of colour and patterning.
I need to keep revising who I keep in my herd.
I decided with the harlequins simply NOT to keep the chocolates or the lilacs. Either you are a good blue or a good black or I'm simply not going to keep you.
I'm going to breed for clean markings and decent type. Getting GOOD type in harlequins is a bit of a struggle but all one can do is persevere. :)
To that end the following harlequins are for sale
Stormy is of breeding age. And she very much wants to be a mommy. This does' personality is to be a breeding doe, she is NOT a pet.
Shake is a decent young doe. She will be a breeding age/size in another month or so. She's a nicely mannered young doe and should do well as a pet or as a breeding rabbit.
Lem is a hugely sweet boy. He is very shy, easy with the ladies, and just a pleasant young rabbit. This picture does not do him justice and I really need to update it.
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.
