Went into the rabbitry this morning and found a pile of blood under Rosie's cage this morning which freaked me out a bit. Checked her over from head to toe and saw absolutely NO reason for it. so I'm like huh? what's with this?
Then a couple of days of days ago I had a wee guinea pig pup in the large female cage and said.. WHO ARE YOU? and where did you come from? I went through the list of you just had pups, you couldn't possibly be the one, who else...and settled on Fran or Temp...and it ended up being Temp though for a fair bit I thought it was Fran...and then a day later we have another pup and it's like ACK!!!!! who is doing this. they both nurse off Temp so I'm assuming they are both hers as they really can't be anyone else's. Just a touch of oddness.
Then we have Miss 'Tude here. She is a rescue and was meant to go to the states but... things changed. She was mishandled by her people and allowed to be a bossy bunny so she tries to exert herself over me but she's coming around. She's been bred and mostly she acts like she was bred but she's a bit an attitude bunny. I'm hoping that she'll kindle and that those she's bred with will have smaller litters so I can foster them over to kinder bunnies. I find that is often the secret to influencing kits. Give them to a really calm doe and the kits end up being calm and easygoing as well. Given the inconsistencies in her nature she will NOT go to a pet home.
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.
