Biscuit x Lem
Button x Mitch
Vivian x Bandit
14 kits were produced by Lem and Biscuit.
It's hard to believe but Biscuit is even more mellow with this litter in her big cage then she was before.
It's such a very very nice change.
Lem, who has been sold once, not picked up. Pending once, truck blew up on the buyer, so unable to come. Lem, has gone to a new home. He's been a lovely boy here. Started life being skittery at times, but settled well as he matured.
He's now off to a new home with 10 girlfriends waiting for him. He'll be a fine working rabbit.
Oh but a hopeful happy camper I am. :)
the picture above is Lem. I have a gal who lives stateside who is thinking to take him and Milkshake and two youngsters home. I am ecstatic! I did NOT want to have to cull this boyo to make room in my rabbitry and Lem is such a soft touch of a rabbit. Likes behind the head scritches and is just so easy to work with though he is annoyed at me right now because I have him in a too small cage.
another reason I am so happy is my lover boy Bandit will be moving into a pet home at the end of the week. My Mr. Smooshie face has a lovely pet home with a well experienced owner wanting to take him home. :) woot woot!
Another reason to be happy is Shimmer found a new home today. She is heavily pregnant but going to a well experienced home where she will become a retired breeder and pet for a lady and her daughter.
STILL looking for their new places
Biscuit and Lem produced 14 kits of which 11 made it to weaning. This is quite s scattered litter for size, all four does are bigger than the boys which I find intriguing. Anyways, the kits are now old enough to go to new homes.
Normally Biscuit has 13 kits, today she had fourteen.
They are a whole gambit of colour and patterning.
I need to keep revising who I keep in my herd.
I decided with the harlequins simply NOT to keep the chocolates or the lilacs. Either you are a good blue or a good black or I'm simply not going to keep you.
I'm going to breed for clean markings and decent type. Getting GOOD type in harlequins is a bit of a struggle but all one can do is persevere. :)
To that end the following harlequins are for sale
Stormy is of breeding age. And she very much wants to be a mommy. This does' personality is to be a breeding doe, she is NOT a pet.
Shake is a decent young doe. She will be a breeding age/size in another month or so. She's a nicely mannered young doe and should do well as a pet or as a breeding rabbit.
Lem is a hugely sweet boy. He is very shy, easy with the ladies, and just a pleasant young rabbit. This picture does not do him justice and I really need to update it.
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.
