Are they pets, or dinner?

Cute
I've sold a few of my meat bunny babies as pets due to their disposition and I kept getting asked by others if I had other varieties like lops or lionheads.... so these young ladies are my pet breeders. I won't breed them as often as my meat gals. All my breeders are pets. Bunny meat isn't as versatile or tasty the older they get.....

Lops are cute. Every now and then you get one with one ear down and the other ear up. We called them flops. :lol: You have a pair of cuties, like the black and white one.
thank you! It's hard to see but her spots have that brindle coloring.

Any of you with chickens might appreciate this story.....

I had two broodies that hatched out a clutch of 5. Another eggs began to hatch but they were off nest so I had to put it in the bator. Little Shasta hatched without a hitch. I let her dry and fluff then I put her back. The mommas and her siblings were happy to have her back. Two days later my incubator chicks hatched. Five chicken chicks, a turkey poult and 4 quail. Decent hatch I guess. The hubbs brought home two barred rock (hoping they are pullets).... I put the quail in my outdoor chickery brooder and moved the broodies into a modified rabbit hutch with a bit more space and some ground time available.... I was moving my brooder chicks and thought "let's see if they will just adopt these babies too". So I put their chicks (two had died so they had four) into the tub I was using to move the brooder chicks and put the broodies in my small dog crate to move. As I was waiting on our oldest to bring me something so I could settle them, I tilted the tub over a bit so the broodies could see their babies. They looked a bit shocked to see so many.... But then they immediately went back to their distressed broody clucks. Finally got them all settled in to the new space and all the chickies (even the poult) were playing and eating and drinking. Checked on them at tuck in last night and the two broodies had them ALL tucked under them, safe, sound, and warm! I got really lucky and they are such good moms, adopting such a large group of babies they didn't hatch.... soSo proud of my two girls!:weee

I hope everyone is well this AM. We are truely blessed!

Coffee is on, biscuits and gravy on the table. Help yourselves!
