LionStripe is a good, but very strict mother. Having a bunch of offspring makes her a bit tightly wound. Having all her kits gone has helped her revert to a much calmer state of being. So these last two of her girls by NightLily left today for a home in Toronto. :)
October 10 baby boy off Peyton and TinyTim.. off to a new home up past Oshawa.
LionStripe x NightLily from November 14, 2015. These four kiddos are off to up past Oshawa.
DaisyHawk x Baccia from November 16, 2014 are heading up past Oshawa as well.
The only reason I let these kits go away from home early is they were going in a group with people experienced with young rabbits.
six kits born to this first time mom. She's rather like her mom, liking to kindle on the wire, so I put her in one of the winter guinea pig cages. Solid floor. So she was able to kindle in the corner. She'll be moved in a week or so to a different cage, but for now, until her kits get mobile she'll be safe where she's at.
Watch Me Grow
This young doe was proving impossible to breed so I stuck her in with a rescue buck for a few days.
She played keep-away with him for a few days... acting VERY frightened of him, so I didn't think she'd kindle for a couple days yet. AND she wasn't acting bred.
So.. no nestbox.
result was three dead kits.
Total bummer. Would have been two broken blue, one solid blue.
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.
