    Well decided to sell the chickens so now all the bunnies and cages are in their insulated coop. :weee
    finally got Celestia bred. Miss R2D2 is not old enough until December. So since they have a new, warmer shed. I bred Xara &Padame. ;)
    So it's Celestia xWonder, Xara x Doc and Padame x Gully
    all due December 2. :fl Bucks were interested, does so so... Xara lifted well though. Maybe I will get some jrs for spring shows. Have a show on Saturday.

    I butchered 10 today, and decided to scale back for a while. Currently I have 2 bucks and 4 does, but planning on going down to 1 buck and 2 does by winter.

    Yes, indeed, Pastor Dave. That is almost exactly where I want to be through the winter, too.
    I kept a buck and a doe from earlier litters this past summer on a just-in-case basis. The doe is the most beautiful rabbit I have but doesn't fit into my plans right now. My top priority was to get a future breeder buck from one doe I have and my only breeder buck. That doe is nearly three years old. It took her three litters to finally throw a buck. He's only four weeks old now but he has occupancy rights to the saved girl's cage. I've been unable to find anybody to take her so her name is coming close to changing from Nora to Roaster.

    Well first round of breedings resulted in zero kits... but Butterfly x Blackie is due end of the week and she was interested.
    Then Xara, Celestia and CP are due in a couple weeks, Padame also but the way she feels and acts I am doubtful on her.
    They've been getting ACV, boss and calf manna and lights at night... so we should get some kits.... I would think.
    I got some work done to the cages this afternoon. Invested in a pair of heavy duty c clip pliers, definitely a good thing.
