It may finally be Spring, as heralded by the constant drizzle for several days. We had an event trip, where I field-trialed my freeze dried foods. That went well. I got to eat REAL FOOD while traveling. So cool. But my knee decided to act up, and made it difficult for me to take care… Continue reading Spring, Finally, Maybe?
It has been a week of new additions here. First, the Saga of the USPS Shipment. Some painfully expensive chicks were purchased because the breeder had a substantial hatch occur, and there were enough to justify the acquisition (plus shipping costs). Same breeder as the Black Copper Marans hatching eggs that are currently in the… Continue reading Chicks, Buns, and more Chicks
Yeah, yeah, I know what the time stamp will say. 🙂 But I haven’t gone to bed yet, so it counts. I just wanted to post the picture of cute new born rabbit kits. It’s a meat mutt litter, unless one turns up with a characteristic I’m looking for in the crossing. Nine, the largest… Continue reading 4/13/19
After several days of being barely functional due to migraine, I managed to beat it back early this afternoon. Naturally, this meant I had to shoehorn in all of the tasks I meant to accomplish on Saturday AND Sunday only on about half of Sunday. Accordingly, I’m a bit tired. 🙂 Two of the current… Continue reading Long day
Warning: Gratuitous bunny pictures ahead. 🙂
After being deeply irritated by the last few weeks of fodder issues, I’ve decided that it’s the seed itself. The last batch of bag giving me problems was started 2 days ago, and I just picked four or five patches of white fuzzy seeds off of it. Bleh. I have rearranged the fodder shelf, with… Continue reading Moldy Seed
We’ve been SICK. Accordingly, I have tried hard to minimize my handling and the rabbits’ exposure to me directly. I’ve had antibiotics for two and a half days now, so felt safe(r) handling the fluffbutts. So far, all three of the currently nursing litters are doing well. The weather’s been all over the place for… Continue reading Open Eyes
So far, the two chocolate kits are doing well. My current intent is to give those two a chance to become the establishing baseline for a chocolate line in the breeding program. But we’ll see. One issue so far is that while I love the breed, I’m fairly convinced the breeder of most of my… Continue reading Chocolates
Bunnies First, since I failed to mention: Missy had her kits yesterday at some point. I believe I counted six heads when I checked her box out in the late afternoon. It’s her first litter, and I was concerned that they weren’t rolly-polly bellied babies. When I went back out later to check on the… Continue reading Rabbit Spaghetti Sauce (Ragu)
Mystique did well, with a litter of six large kits. Two are chocolates, four are blacks. They appear to be healthy, so I’m hopeful this litter survives. Missy still hasn’t kindled, but she’s so pregnant. She definitely will. This is her first round, so she will probably take a little longer. She might be chilling… Continue reading But wait, there’s more!
