BranchNook and Diablo's black youngster off to the pet store today. This youngster has appeared female to me for a while but lately has been playing guessing games with me, so when the opportunity came to place her at the pet store, I took it.
I do kinda suspect this girlie is actually a boy as her mother treated her the same as the brother, doing the normal for her clawing at the boys when they reaching 4.5 weeks of age... she just wants the boys GONE. So momma went in her own cage and the kidlets stayed in their own abode. Jan. 21, 2016 kit
So over the past year I've had people give me rabbits, and rabbit stuff and what not.
Today i said okay... lets talk what I couldn't sell and bring it to the auction.
I took six plastic hidey holes, various hay feeders and bowls, litter boxes, guinea pig holes, other odd pieces and one rabbit.
I have to admit, I am not real keen about bringing rabbits to the auction, I never know where they are going to end up.
BUT I had this old cage that i wanted to get rid of AND a rabbit that came in as a rescue and the time had come for her to get out of my place. So I sent her off in the cage.
It is SO nice to have all this empty space again. Two big boxes of things all gone. ... bowls, feeders, sundries.. YEAH.. ALL GONE. And I got a wee bit of change for my troubles too. :)
Have to admit i was a tad unimpressed by the auction people though. They lost my sales slips so just gave me the base amount that they do in times of error. Irritating that end of things....but what is a person supposed to do eh?
So I have a friend who likes to help me sell my bunnies. I had given her three to sell a bit back and told her if she ever fell in love with one to keep it. Her boyfriend took a hankering for this fellow, and so he'll be their house rabbit. :) He's a StarFlower x Tiny Tim from Dec 26, 2015.
So my big lover mutt BluePond is off to a new home. This was a touch of a difficult decision for me, but I decided it was better to let him head off. I don't need to breed bigger rabbits anymore, and the smaller bunnies are easier to handle. :) It's also REALLY easy to get back into them if I so choose to do so. The daughter is a Jan 20 girl off IvyPool.
Nights Cry and her son (pictured below) went off to their new home today. A fellow off Rabbittalk.com has been having issues getting kits off his does so wanted to add some new blood. Night's Cry is normally a calm easily pet doe but this litter has been very skittery. She'll be moved into a colony situation (with her own space not shared, just a situation with lots of room for her and her kits and a visiting buck).
RisenSun x Bacci, Holland Lop. Born Jan. 22, 2015. A boy. new home in Woodstock.
LilyFlower x TinyTim, born Kindled: Dec. 15 2015, female.
My little lover boy off StarFlower x Tiny Tim, born Dec. 26, has found himself a new home today. :) My thanks to my friend Bec for loving up on him the past couple of weeks while we found him new digs to hang out in.
On Monday this quiet boy from BranchNook and Diablo, a Jan 21 baby, found himself in a rabbit experienced home. He's a nice little polish boy and should do well in his new 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.
For the BEST rabbit forum I've ever found. Go to Rabbittalk.com. Good for the pet rabbit owner as well as the breeder for meat or show.
