LionStripe is a good, but very strict mother. Having a bunch of offspring makes her a bit tightly wound. Having all her kits gone has helped her revert to a much calmer state of being. So these last two of her girls by NightLily left today for a home in Toronto. :)
October 10 baby boy off Peyton and TinyTim.. off to a new home up past Oshawa.
LionStripe x NightLily from November 14, 2015. These four kiddos are off to up past Oshawa.
DaisyHawk x Baccia from November 16, 2014 are heading up past Oshawa as well.
The only reason I let these kits go away from home early is they were going in a group with people experienced with young rabbits.
six kits born to this first time mom. She's rather like her mom, liking to kindle on the wire, so I put her in one of the winter guinea pig cages. Solid floor. So she was able to kindle in the corner. She'll be moved in a week or so to a different cage, but for now, until her kits get mobile she'll be safe where she's at.
Watch Me Grow
This young doe was proving impossible to breed so I stuck her in with a rescue buck for a few days.
She played keep-away with him for a few days... acting VERY frightened of him, so I didn't think she'd kindle for a couple days yet. AND she wasn't acting bred.
So.. no nestbox.
result was three dead kits.
Total bummer. Would have been two broken blue, one solid blue.
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.
