Mrs.Cicero Posted October 10, 2021 Share Posted October 10, 2021 showed up in my rabbitry. Sigh. I was short two cages, so I had a pair of growout rabbits together in each one. They were only supposed to be there until they were 12 weeks old and large enough to process and NOT mature enough to be breeding, but things have been a little hectic, so I'm behind on the processing - I was going to do it TODAY, but instead I was lifting an AC unit and filling in the sinking ground beneath it. Anyway, when I dividing up the growouts, I carefully put the does in one cage and the bucks in another. I thought. Two days ago, one of the bucks started growling LOUDLY at the other, so, since I'd emptied my indoor cages (I had a couple rabbits indoors while their poor noses recovered from being chomped by the damn mosquitoes), I moved the growly one to a basement cage. Annnnnnd, now there are 6 rabbits in that cage. SHE had 4 blue and 1 black Silver Fox kit today... right when I was SUPPOSED to be sending rabbits to Freezer Camp, but didn't get to it (again)...obviously fathered by the buck that I correctly identified as a buck. I'm probably in trouble with alphabet-people for assuming the NOW-A-DOE'S gender earlier. Sigh. Chickens are SO MUCH EASIER. 1 6 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
