Well, phooey!Looks like if John wants to show any jr mini rex we will be buying them... as Una crushed her litter overnight... raising rabbits sure sucks at times.
My two Netherland Dwarfs have come up with their own variation on "drive her crazy." Both delivered their litters in the box, etc, doing everything exactly like they are supposed to. So, what's my beef? They are over-achievers. Both have 6 - count 'em - 6! One doe is a false dwarf, and 6 isn't unheard of for one of those big girls, but her sister sure looks like a true dwarf (though without any peanuts in this litter, I gotta go, "hmm?") Tiny little guys, but they all look viable. I suppose I could just be ruthless and take a "survival of the fittest" approach, but these being Dwarfs, the ones most likely to survive would be the honkin' great false dwarfs, right?So, BB2K is trying to top up any baby that looks like it didn't get a good feed after the moms nurse 'em, and I'm working on trying to increase the does' milk supply without risking their lives.
