Excellent brood doe, nice temperament, just a solid quiet die.
Doe who recently died. In poor health, but still cared for her kits until I took them away. Now deceased.
Her Kits - fostered with Marie's kits over to Biscuit
Was fostering Biscuits kits instead. Has successfully fostered in the past.
Her four kits - now deceased....
My temperamental doe who doesn't much like other rabbits.
Raising eight holland lop kits. Last night was VERY cold out and she covered them up even more. Those kits were all extremely well fed this morning and then again this evening. I am so happy with my Biscuit. I'm very disappointed that I lost her kits as I had a fellow wanting to buy three of them but what can you do? He'll have to wait now.
I am currently rather displeased with Logos.... I fostered Biscuits kits to her and she seemed fine with them. Was in and out of the box, sniffed them, let them be. overnight she decided to tear the nestbox apart and so all four of Biscuits kits up and froze to death. She did an extremely thorough job on tearing the box apart.
This was my first failure in 9 years of raising rabbits with a foster situation.
My mom-in-law asked... why didn't you just foster the wee ones from the sick doe over to Biscuit and leave the four of hers there too?
1. Biscuits kits were three times the size
2. mixing weak kits with strong generally not a good idea
3. Biscuit can raise eight, she can't raise 12 (I've tried and it just doesn't work for her).
4. I've never had a problem fostering before why would I expect I would this time?
My first failure in fostering kits EVER. Miss Logos has one strike on her now and won't (if can ever be prevented) be used as a foster doe again. I knew she couldn't be trusted with older kits, but she's fostered wee babies in her past litter so....Anyways, that's one tear I won't be letting her go on again.
