looking for a home

this girlie is looking for a new home.

A spring 2011 baby, she's a mini rex doe.

Opal in colour, I have to look up her parentage first to find out exactly who she is from. I'm guessing an AMR cinnamon cross donatello OR rockstar (thinking 'tello though).

Best offer, thinking in the range of $15.

Return and New Home

So I sold a bunch of kits last weekend. All raised the same, all acting the same, all doing well...

Had been breathing fast the day before, but otherwise seemed fine. I'm thinking it was stress of the move or something as all the others are fine but for this one, and it was exactly like the others before it went to it's new home.

Anyways, I said okay, I can replace him. These are the two boys I have coming up, though you'll have to wait for them to mature a bit.

Person didn't like either, asked if could replace with a doe, if she paid the difference in price. Said sure, why not.

THEN I got a call from a gal who bought some bunnies in the spring. Could she return them?

Uh, sure (me thinking ACK! I have NO ROOM!) but I guarantee a return place so I figured something out... some crowding will happen for a short while and some piggies will have young bunny company. of them was a black otter buck...EXACTLY what the owner wanted. Took a pic... the person said WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!! I want him!

So...she's getting a six month old little buck who is actually of better quality than what she bought, in the colour that she really really really likes. Really tame, really social, just a nice little rabbit. I'm tempted to use him on one of my does before he goes to his new place.

Pretty cool eh?

I think it's so neat sometimes how God works things out.

So.. I have the tent...

covered over with the extra tarps for the winter.

Good to have that done. So glad I got it done last week before this mornings snow hit.

Bunnies seem to be handling the change in weather okay.

Biscuit's litter of 12 (remaining) seems to be doing well overall. One of the small ones was looking a bit thin this morning.

Wendy's kits are doing well. One is a small kit so I'll be hanging on it for a bit to make sure it is good and strong before selling it. I think it's a doe, but it's so small it's harder for these middle-aged eyes to see.

Slips kits are VERY cute. Funny how some litters just make a body smile...but slips kits do that for me. Crossbreds so I'll sell them for $10-15.

The polish kits are a bit 'busy'. interesting to see how using a different buck affects what the kits are like. Laddie's kits were always very calm and unflappable, but these guys are a bit busier. Not skittish or nutty, just busier. Will be interesting to see how they mature.

Peek's kits are per normal. Very calm, nothing bugs them kits. Wish I'd had a couple more does in the litter, just have the one girl who isn't particularly impressing me yet. But not every rabbit is impressive.

The rescue kits are growing well, blossoms' kits I think will finish out well. Nice to watch them grow and develop and see if what I think is a good rabbit as a baby actually turns out that way. I'm getting better all the time at knowing which kits will finish well.

I pretty much have it with the meat type rabbits, still getting there with the polish. The hollands I am bringing down their size all the time. :) and finding that variety in colour is a really good thing. :) I do like the colour chocolate...but I LOVE the chin look. Just don't want all chin or it's hard to tell one from another. :)

so enough of me rambling... it's just fine to talk rabbits. :)

Biscuit - Kindles November 27, 2011

13 kits for miss biscuit today.

Shade is a first time daddy! :)

at this point they seem a variety of shadings, but they are brand new so hard to tell for sure.

Two are quite small.
