BrightSparrow made a lovely nest but only had one kit... a wee little one, it was getting cold when I discovered it, so I plunked it in with DropPatch's litter. This morning I checked it out and it was all warm and snuggly. I am not sure at this point if it is a runt or a peanut as it's a quite the wee kit. I think it is a chestnut, but could be opal like momma.
Born August 20, 2016...The boy is off to a home in London, the Girl off to a home in St. Thomas. Two nice kits that I would have kept (particularly the doe) but am also happy they are in new homes. They are both off Baccia.
Sunny is a small girl, and for her first breeding offered up two tiny kits that were born dead. It's too bad, but sometimes that is the way it goes.
I wish I knew why Jewel, one of the sweetest buns I knew, had a disability. But i don't. I do know I managed to get attached to her and that was a problem... with an impending move in our future, I didn't want to risk her continued health.
I faced three options.
1. risk her health (didn't like that option)
2. euthanasia to prevent decline (didn't really want to as she's a kind rabbit)
3. locating a new residence.
I am pleased that she managed to find a new residence, with a rescue that specializes in helping disabled bunnies. Pretty cool eh?
She's now with the Dancing Rabbit rescue.
You can find more information out about them here and on facebook.
As a rabbit breeder it's always a risk dealing with a rescue. Some are good and some well... leave something to be desired. I am hopeful that this will be a good thing I have done with Miss Jewel.
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.
