    Things are looking great! Hope all the mommas are good mommas! I heard rabbits can be a bit difficult when it comes to having and raising young? Or is that just first-time moms?

    Look at them little ones.. :love

    3rd doe had a large litter. 8 or 9 I don't remember. She didn't pull any fur or build a nest. She had them on the wire and not in the box. All were lost


    This is her second strike. The last litter only 2 made it. She's bred and ready for the third try. Either way we will get more meat in the freezer

    They are looking good! Are you going to sell some of them for meat/pets, or sell them processed? Something I also wondered about when I was considering rabbits, is what do you usually do with the pelts/hides?
