Buttercup and Moondance each had successful litters of three! Buttercup's being all broken black while Moon's are all black. Out of all six of these guys there only appears to be one boy which really excited me as I don't need any bucks but am in dire need of new does. I think I'll be keeping all of the babies until state fair and then decide from there who stays and who goes. On a similar note, I now have a youtube channel! If you'd like to watch our litters as they grow feel free to check it out :) My username is KellyAdams96 (origional, I know). Here they are at two weeks
My first attempt at blogging and I gotta say, I'm pretty stoked. Lets hope I'm more articulate through text than I am in person, haha.
Hmm, where to start? The weather today was great so I took the opportunity to clean some cages, breed some bunnies, and let the little fluffers romp around the yard. Okay, I lied. I only cleaned half of the cages, but its not my fault! Well...it kind of is. I forgot to check to see if I had enough aspen shavings to get the job done. But never fear! My dad is gone to pick some up as I'm typing this, so it looks like those are getting done tomorrow.
On an equally frustrating note, Jet and Moondance were bred today which, despite my irritation with solid blacks, I'm really excited about. The problem was that Moon seemed a bit confused about her role in the matter and kept mounting Jet while he cowered in the corner. I have strange rabbits. I was also going to breed Jet to Buttercup (AKA: Big Mamma) but it got dark so that's something that'll also have to wait for tomorrow.
Here's a picture of my little buddy, Brier, playing in the yard (:
Also, this little booger below is Zombie. He bit me today and I am quite angry with him. Well, not really. He always gets so excited when I go out to the bunnies and scratches frantically at the hutch door in a desperate attempt to receive nose rubs, or better yet, treats. I placed my hand on the door when I was picking something up off the ground and the little guy chomped me through the wire. I hold no grudges though. Maybe he was just living up to his name. Plus, who could be mad at this face?
