IME, the employer/employee relationship went sour decades ago. Used to be that an employer valued a good worker, and treated him with the respect he deserved. Now, it's all about sucking the employee dry, then bringing in a new hire to suck dry. I like your bunny set up. Do you have any experience with colony management for meat rabbits? And, re: chicken coop/garden. It looks like you are doing the rotating chicken run/garden spot system. Is that so, and how is that working for you?

works good. they go stir it up and eat bugs for a few months. works well. the eggs always get really dark whennthey run the garden.

hes eating me out of house and home. eats more than the other two and then some.
I feel your pain, we have 5. 2 Great Pyrenees, 2 Anatolians and 1 Great Dane/Labrador cross. They ignore or just nibble the dry dog food, ants take over or they guard their bowl and fight over it. So I buy chicken leg quarters on sale in 10 pound bags and can them for the dogs. Just don’t have enough chicken offal and back pieces for the dogs all year! Mixed with their kibble, the dogs gobble up every bite and lick their pans. Gone in minutes, no ants, no fights.
