I had hopes that Sheer, Oct 24 daughter of TangleFoot x Maximus would turn out well. Her ears had promise to drop like her momma's did by six months, but...
She also proved to be a bit of a fussy girl. Grain (1 tbsp) and 1/3 cup Pellets was all she would eat. If I supplemented with anything else, she wouldn't finish her pellets Add to that her ears never dropped and it was a decision to move her one. .
My plan was to send her to a pet home as over all she was a healthy girl just thin due to not eating a whole lot.
BUT BC Pinelane Rabbitry asked if they could have her and were willing to take the risk with her, so off she went to her new home today. Who knows, perhaps she will flourish with a different caretaker. I've seen it happen before. I've taken in risks and had them turn out to be wonderful rabbits. I hope that Sheer will flourish as well.
Cocoa and Peter are off on new adventures today. Born Jan 29, off Tangle and Play. These youngsters should do well for their new people.
I bred Storm to a young buck that came as a rescue. Came in as a doe, but left as a buck. :) Called him Barney the short time he was here. An Orange boy who sat up pretty and had a huge wide head.
Seven kits in an extremely well built nest. Storm is a bit of a flighty girl so I'm hopeful that she will do a good job.

Litter of five, no nest, cold. Warmed them up, built a lovely nest for them. Mom thought sitting on them a good idea.

Seven kits, one DOA. It was funny, I warned Step she needed to have babies or she'd be on the culling list. I turned around and she started kindling! :) Funny little doe. Made a marvellous nest with tons of fur, needed a bit of supplementing at the base due to lots of straw cleaned out as she kindled.
Ditzy first time mom issues. All kits died. She didn't feed them.
This little girl off Aida and Miller went off to her new home today. Her folks met me in London. I advised them that she was a smart youngster and doing training with her would be a great idea.
This is Rain's second failed litter. I will be evaluating her really well this week to see if trying a third breeding is worthwhile. I adore this little doe so I'm disappointed, but not all does have a mothering instinct. Six kits DOA, scattered through the cage.
Beautiful nest with seven kits. I was surprised as it didn't look like she was carrying many.

Allan and friend met me tonight to meet my two available kiddos. My little quiet boy found his way into a new home. He's such a sweet submissive mite, who will grow up to be the best bunny. Off of HareWing and Calypso. Jan 3 boy.
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.
