My first ever litter of dutch babies are finally here. Sabre is an experienced mom. She made a lovely nest with seven wee ones in it. She's doing a good job.
This was a "make do" litter. Zigzag desperately wanted to have kidlets, and Saddle wasn't interested... so Bradley was!
Unfortunately, Zigzag couldn't figure out the use of a nestbox or desired to pull fur so her litter of seven didn't pull through.
We'll give her another go as first time moms sometimes have oopsies. I have to focus on the good. She cleaned them really well and had no difficulties with delivery.
Berry found her way into a pet home in Goderich this morning.
Berry is a non-pedigreed Netherland Dwarf that I picked up in Goderich on a snowy day just before a supper out for my hubby's work. We had a lovely meal and I got to enjoy a lovely bunny.
She's been an excellent momma over the years, but since I'm moving on to breeding Dutch bunnies, I've decided to retire my dwarf bunnies.
Berry is a quiet lass who tends to prefer to come to people on her own terms. She eats everything offered to her.
This young rabbit, a dwarf bunny, is a son of Berry and Alecks. Born on October 5, 2023 as part of a group of four. Colours in the litter consisted of Chocolate Otter, Chocolate, Blue, Pointed, and Broken blue. This young man is I think a broken blue, though sometimes I think he's a broken lilac.
He is a generous hearted young rabbit and I think he'll mature into being like his gregarious, happy-go-lucky pops. A good natured boy that should make his new people quite happy.
He doesn't handle melon well but loves a wide variety of other produce. Hay, pellets, and mixed grains are always welcome as well. Just overall, an easy keeper.
October 5 is the birthdate for these two boys, children of Berry and Alecks. They are dwarf bunnies. The chocolate I expect to finish around 2 lbs, the chocolate otter at about 2.5.
Part of a litter of six, these boys have the colours of chocolate and chocolate otter. Siblings included blue, charlie blue, black otter and pointed white.
Of the two, the chocolate otter is a bit bigger and is the bolder, more interactive. The chocolate tends to be quieter, more like his momma.
They don't do well eating too much melon but otherwise loves everything offered to them.
These October 5th babies from Frankie and Caper moved into their new homes today.
These young holland lops are part of a litter for four girls. Two which are black/orange tricolours, and two black/orange harlequins.
Girl 1 is a black-orange tricolour, and girl 3 is a black-orange harlequin. They are very similar to each other.
I expect girl 3 to be a gregarious bunny much like her daddy, and girl 1 to be a kind, but serious lass like her momma.
October 5 is the birthdate for this fine little boy. Admittedly, for the first four weeks I thought he was a she! BUT HEY! Boys will sometimes be a bit slow showing off. A dwarf boy born to Berry and Alecks.
Part of a litter of six, this boys' colour is blue. Siblings included chocolate, chocolate otter, charlie blue, black otter and pointed white.
He's a very sweet boy, curious, and quick to run to say hi to his people.
He doesn't do well eating too much melon but otherwise loves everything offered to him.
This October 5th baby from Frankie and Caper moved into a rabbit familiar home. She's a holland lop.
She's part of a litter for four girls. Two which are black/orange tricolours, and two black/orange harlequins.
This girlie is a sweet-natured girl with a slightly fuzzy texture to her coat. I expect she'll grow up to be a lot like her momma. A kind girlie with a big heart and sure determination.
This Sept 9, 2023 lass of Cindy and Omega found herself in a new home. Her breed is holland lop.
She's been trying very hard to get me to call her Ellery (and therefore stay her for a long spell) but now she has the chance to try to convince new people of what she should be called.
She's a bright active girlie who likes to explore, and when playtime is over she'll come seek out her people for food.
Her colour is broken chestnut and she is part of a litter of six. The other colours in the litter were black otter, chestnut, chocolate otter, and broken black otter.
I don't tend to have a lot of success using Facebook to rehome bunnies, but occasionally it works out.
This lovely family (with a sweet baby in tow) joined me at my meeting spot so we could talk bunnies. I brought three kiddos with me and initially it looked like they would take this fellow's sister home, but this lad's calm demeanour won the day.
Born as part of a litter of six to Cindy and Omega. He looks so much like his dad! :) I expect he'll turn out to be temperamentally a gentle soul like his papa. His Dad Omega is currently my favourite bun in my herd.
His colour is chestnut. Other colours in his litter were black otter, broken chestnut, chocolate otter, and broken black otter.
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.
