    Shortages

    I remember those odd and even days, locking gas caps, locking the shed cuz a gas can disappeared. Pop's brother had an evil Chesapeake, he chained him at night in the driveway. His gas quit disappearing. US 13 goes thru the center of town. I could probably point to a dozen or more places that...

    Coffee anyone ?

    Come home after a rare good day at work. Head over to the garden to pull orchard grass for the rabbits and grab a snake by the tail. I think it was a garter snake, doesn't matter. I've come in and I'm gonna sit here until my ticker stops racing. I didn't mind the one that met me at the shed door...

    Can I keep pregnant and nursing doe rabbits together?

    And I agree totally with @Baymule they dig. In nature they shelter underground plus parasites. Of course this is just our opinion, people do it but I can't figure how.

    Can I keep pregnant and nursing doe rabbits together?

    I understand your concerns. Separate everybody as quickly as possible. Some can get along until they don't and it gets real ugly quick. Litter last summer one buck castrated his brother. I separated best I could, put a young doe in with her Mom. Mom thrashed her every chance she got. Had to...

    Blood in the cage

    Well I guess I'm April's fool. That last day I posted I had full intent of putting her down. Got so far as getting her out and sitting on the ground with her. She jumped out of my lap took off across the yard. Had herself a little journey. Ran around half an hour before I put her back. Short...

    Blood in the cage

    I wouldn't know what I was looking at. My knowledge of anatomy only covers what is / isn't edible. I'm pretty sure it's a tumor and it' spread. Bless her heart she met me this morning when I checked their water. Gonna be along day.

    Blood in the cage

    I can't bring myself to do it right now. I found more today. Alot. Hadn't seen any for a week. Old girl was eating some barley fodder, came to me like always when I opened the door. I rubbed her head for awhile. Maybe she'll do me a favor tonight.

    Blood in the cage

    Did some reading could be a lot of things stones, uti , etc. DS told me I've had her 4 yrs. Time flies. So she's probably 6. I added acv to her water. Do that for a week. Keep watch. Looked all over yesterday didn't find any new spots so hopefully it's nothing. :fl

    Blood in the cage

    This week I have found three different spots of blood on a piece of carpeted plywood. Each has been quarter size or bigger. I originally thought she had pulled a nail but they're all there. Checked her vent, all over her body I don't see anything. I sprayed some peroxide on the spots and they...

    Raising Rabbits for Meat

    Brine it wow. I couldn't wait and tried one in the Nu Wave oven. Half of it was under cooked for my taste( followed the direction for chicken parts), second half I gave it more time. I've got this thing about undercooked meat from bad VFW bar-b-que chicken. 2nd batch was a lot drier, tasted...

    Can I keep a Doe and a Buck together 24/7?

    You got that right. I would have never thought they'd castrate each other. It was ghastly.

    Can I keep a Doe and a Buck together 24/7?

    If you have my luck it'll take that buck about a blink of an eye to figure out whose who or she will and you'll have a pregnant doe or a castrated buck. Don't put them together for a second unless you're there and definitely want kits.
