    MtViking- A little piece of paradise.

    We didn’t get hardly any compared to a normal winter. I guess we got quite a bit up in the mountains. The snow pack is reporting normal anyways. I don’t know if I believe that report. We will see what happens this summer.

    Thanks. I don’t know what I’m gonna do with them yet but cat toys is a pretty good idea. I might use some for a nice winter hat something. I plan on just collecting them up until I have enough to start making stuff.

    MtViking- A little piece of paradise.

    Sorry I haven’t had updates very regularly. Just been a crazy couple months. I butchered my first littler today. I’m not a fan of the hopper popper. I botched half of the dispatching and it was horrible. It’s not near as easy to use as it looks like in the videos. Maybe I need to mount it...

    Coffee anyone ?

    Thanks for the coffee, it’s processing day for my first litter of rabbits. I’m not sure where I went wrong but my rabbits are 14weeks today and only pushing 3.5 pounds I think one or two where almost 4 pounds but I don’t want to keep feeding them for weeks on end when my new litter will be here...

    Coronavirus Covid-19 Is it Affecting You and How?

    Closed up a lot of places here in Montana. I feel bad for all those jobs lost, my wife being of them. Me and the kids all have asthma so it’s a bit scary to be truthful. I think this could turn pretty sour pretty quick if something doesn’t change. People are in edge and a lot of them without...

    MtViking- A little piece of paradise.

    We hopefully good news. I was able to get three fall offs with my two satin pure breeds. Wish my other doe wouldn’t have died a couple weeks ago or I might have two litters in the way. Now I have to wait months before I have another full breed satin to add to the breeders and she’s going to be...

    possibly sick buck

    Same thing happened to me two weeks ago. She slowed on eating one day and was gone the next. I don’t know what happened but she didn’t have any discharge or runny nose. Everything seemed normal other than her not eating and she wouldn’t come see me at the cage like normal.

    MtViking- A little piece of paradise.

    Any tips on figuring out sex of young kits? I thought I could figure it out easy enough based on research and comparing with my adult rabbits. But they all but one look like females. One has a round hole down below but the rest seem to me to be slits. Which maybe I have all but one females but...

    Yeah I’m in Montana. You are correct February last year here was brutal. I’ve seen it snow in July before so I’m definitely not counting my blessings yet. As much as I enjoy the mild weather we need the moisture so I hope it’s a rainy spring

    I haven’t had to plow with the the tractor but a couple times at the beginning of the season. I have a little plow truck to use, but haven’t had to use it either. We’ve had a mild dry winter, I’m dreading what this summer is going to be like. Last year at this time it was snowing everyday and...

    MtViking- A little piece of paradise.

    Just been busy haven’t been able to pop on. Things are going ok. I lost one of my breeding does last week. I don’t know what happened. She slowed up on eating and wasn’t her self but she didn’t have any goopy eyes or runny nose, I didn’t think too much of it since we had a cold spell and all the...

    MtViking- A little piece of paradise.

    Sorry for late updates. Been busy as usual. The buck is doing great. Back to normal, eating good drinking plenty of water and his eyes are clear. One of the other bucks got the crud too. It only lasted a day and he was cleared up and back to eating/drinking normal. I don’t know what it was but...

Hope everyone has an amazing 2020 I...

    MtViking- A little piece of paradise.

    Well the vet couldn’t find anything pressing with my buck. His eyes had cleared up by the time I got him in. The vet doesn’t want to give him antibiotics unless it’s absolutely necessary because it’s not good for his belly. Buster still isn’t eating or drinking very much but he is eating and...

    MtViking- A little piece of paradise.

    yeah I’m going to try anyways. If there’s nothing for it than it’s a good lesson. I know better than to get too attached but it’s hard sometimes especially with my first. And he’s such a happy rabbit with a big personality I spend a lot of time with the rabbits making sure everyone is happy so...

    MtViking- A little piece of paradise.

    Yeah that’s what I’m afraid of. I didn’t find any good news looking things up online. What about my other rabbits? Is there something I should be doing to help prevent this. I thought I’ve been keeping everyone clean and happy and blocking the cages from the wind and the wet and cold as much as...
