    Larsen Poultry Ranch - homesteading journey

    I'm so tired. :th After dealing with most of the pine rounds Saturday morning, I kinda splurged on bare root trees at the local nursery on Saturday afternoon. I ended up getting 16, plus a potted apple as they didn't have any bare root apples. Shortly before going to the nursery, I bought...

    And our pup Liberty has come home with us. Not fully potty trained and we still haven't finished the fenced yard but we are going to try to make it work. We worked in the yard today and got a lot done. We removed the frankensteined fence and pulled out the t posts. Then we removed the former...

    Bunnies have their eyes open and can hop into and out of the nest boxes. 😍

    DIY Rabbit Cages

    Thanks! I was thinking I would probably need something like this. The cages I have now have these in the floor. I will have to see if we have galvanized rods we can repurpose or if it would be easier to buy some.

    DIY Rabbit Cages

    I meant to type 14 gauge, fixed my post above. I have Rex (not mini) and mixed Flemish. I need the 14 gauge rather than 16 gauge as it is better for the larger rabbits. I have cutting boards and ceramic tiles in the cages for them to rest on.

    DIY Rabbit Cages

    The wire I saw at TSC and what's online is 16 gauge, not 14 gauge. Guess I will ask if they can order the 16 14 gauge. Edit: I mistyped, meant 14 gauge.

    Husband's family is talking about getting two beef to grow out. Dunno when that will happen this year but it would be the first time they have cows on that property. I think we'd probably need to take the goats before the cows go in. They are looking a little rough, I think they need to be...

    DIY Rabbit Cages

    That's part of the problem I've been having, can't find 14 gauge wire for the floor. I can find wire for the sides and top, but only seeing 16 gauge wire for the floor.

    Farmerjan's journal - Weather

    Would there be any possibility he would be willing to rent the storage shed to you? That way you can get out of the house but still have a little more time for the rest of the stuff?

    DIY Rabbit Cages

    Any suggestions on where to buy cage wire for making or repairing rabbit cages? Local feed store doesn't carry the right size and didn't seem interested in ordering it.

    Still trying to plant all the seedlings I bought, got 3 potted this morning before work. I think 6-7 are left, I need to buy more pots after work. One of the ones this morning had a teeny tiny new leaf starting. Hopefully it continues to grow now that it's outside instead of in the house. New...

    Anyone using tattoo pens?

    I have used a tattoo pen, don't remember the brand right now. If you practice on a banana be aware that they don't move, unlike an actual live rabbit who will attempt to jerk their ear away from the crazy human who is messing with it. I had better results using a bunny bag (drawstring bag to...

    Doe isn't eating her food (possibly pregnant)

    If the rabbit can't drink they won't eat. Check the water situation and make sure nothing is wrong. Sometimes they don't eat on a normal schedule, just to mess with you.

    Tried to take a picture of one of the bunnies last night but the darn thing started wiggling as soon as I grabbed my phone. Prior to that it was sitting as cute as can be in my hand. So I took a picture of Raspberry instead. She is being a great momma. I will get pictures of the kits tonight...
