    Oops. :hide

    Mine can smell when I enter the rabbit yard with one... The yard will go from perfectly silent to a frenzy of cage door rattling and bunnies hopping back and forth at he front of their hutches impatiently begging for a slice. I have managed to turn several mean, aggressive bunnies into sweet little beggers with the help of bananas. Have you discovered yet that they like the peel too?

    I'm very glad to hear that your bunnies are doing better!
    :bunny

    Mine are the same...I cut up the bananas and put them in a plastic bowl...now when they see me walk outside with the bowl they all lose their minds :lol: They don't eat the peel though! Maybe in time they will...

    I was planning on selling just 2 rabbits today...and angora baby and a netherland dwarf...but the angora buyer decided she wanted 2 babies, then I went home to get the dwarf baby ready and I got a call from someone wanting a Holland Lop! Called them and the only time they could get here was early evening and the people were coming for the netherland dwarf at noon. So I made 3 separate trips into town to meet people...town is 30 minutes away so I spent 3 hours driving to deliver bunnies ha ha :ep Didn't realize that till i got home the last time :lol:

    Had a funny experience at the gas station...i went in for $20 in gas...and when i got to the pump it stopped at $2. I went in to tell them there was a mistake and the guy just told me to go back out and he fixed it when he didn't even look at me or listen when i was talking :somad I went back out and it was still at $2...so i went back in again and told him i want my money back. He said 'i owe you 10 dollars' so i had to tell him NO you owe me 18 dollars. He refused to give me my money back and a couple customers stepped in and helped set him straight. He handed me the money and called me a b**** :smackI couldn't believe it!

    Good on the bunny sales! As far as the gas station employee, I wonder how many people he has bullied out of money like that?

    I doubt that station would stay on my "stop in" list....I'd make sure to have enough to wave as I passed by and pump it in a better spot....;)

    I was thinking about your picture "problem".....something that I found out thru trial and error was that the resolution setting that a pic is taken with can make a difference with uploading to a site.....most have a max resolution that is allowed, that will "fit" into the field allowed for that file....I'm not any kind of a "whiz" at such things, but have faced my share of "difficulties" with advanced technology.....:)

    I had a surprise litter from my Lionhead doe last night! I'm assuming she was bred through the cage because I haven't re-bred her since her last litter :confused: Oh well...they're cute! 5 big fat babies, 2 black, 1 blue, 1 lilac and a sable point!
    The buck next to her is my newest addition Archie, the broken chocolate chinchilla! I know he's not sterile now :lol:
    I have a Netherland Dwarf doe who was due yesterday...still no kits but this morning she is bleeding a lot...I looked all over the cage and the box for a kit but nothing. I hope she'll be alright :fl She got some extra vitamin/electrolyte water with her breakfast so I hope that gives her some more energy.
