    Frozen watering hose

    Some random thoughts 1. heat lamp above to keep them from freezing 2. a pump to keep the water moving 3. apple cider vinegar does decrease the temperature that water freezes by bit, so that may help. It's also healthy for the rabbits to get a bit for various reasons.

    Using a rabbit tractor without cross contamination?

    Many show people feel they have a higher chance of getting cocci on the ground and they probably do with wild rabbits. I do let mine get out in outdoor pens, they all usually love it. I do treat twice a year for cocci and all kits get corrid around 6 to 8 weeks. Many show people also don't feed...

    Two litters, foster or not?

    I would give it another day or two, since Paprika lost 4 of 6, I would hesitate and make sure she's taking care of the 2 she has. But in most circumstances I would definitely move a couple kits over.

The two darker ones definately are looking chin. Have both a mini rex and polish nesting, and a 2nd MR with a box. Due Thursday, Friday and...

    A Jesusfreaks tales of farm life with three kids

    Congrats on the goslings and getting your garden in! And your dd for riding her 2 wheel bike. Only my youngest is in training wheels yet and I doubt she'll be in much longer. Though we many see, she's bound to keep up with big bro and sis but also a drama queen. FYI turtles are "messy" you'll...
