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
Four kits born, first time mom.
three broken black, one broken chocolate.
Who to my knowledge has never been with a buck, or even housed next to a buck... I came in this morning to pulled fur and a lovely nest made.
Gave her a nestbox and she went right to work.
As of 9 p.m. tonight we have a well made nest and a protective of her nest (in a really kind manner) doe. I wonder if we'll have kits by morning or just what is going on with this confusing young doe.
Time will tell I suppose.....
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.
