Happy Thanksgiving Woodleigh Creek
thanks! I hope you had a lovely one, too! We went ice scating and came home to a nice surprise of a bunny building a nest!

After 4 months of failed breeding, we finally have kits! I am not at home, so I only know from my mother's report that she had 4 live kits and 1 still born. She said that "they are all big." So I am hoping no peanuts. I am so happy that I bred Suka before I sold him!

I (hopefully) have 3 litters due in December. One on the 3rd, one on the 13th, and one on the 27th. I am retiring all of my Sr. stock from showing and am going to focus more on breeding. I probably will not be going to another show until March. I have two 6 hole cages being delivered on December third. This will give me lots of room to grow out some juniors so I can make a good decision on who to keep.

Congratulations! Hoping your pending births turn out as good as this one.

Can't wait to see pics.

Finally got to see them and here is what I got:

3 viable kits, 1 peanut (gone). 2 out of the 3 were black, the last was blue. Out of 17 babies (counting the DOAs and peanuts) this is the first blue she has had. Yay! I love genetics.

I have been having a really hard time lately and am sad to announce I am probably going to hold off with the rabbits for a while. I lost all the kits and my only doe who will actually conceive's uterus prolapsed. I am living with my father now and have been in the hospital for the past week dealing with some issues. I love my rabbits, but I will be selling the ones that will not reproduce as I do not have the time to give them all the love they need. I hopefully will be getting a proven pair for Christmas.

Thank you everyone for understanding and I am sorry if I will not be on for a while.

I don't think you have to be sorry. I think you will read lots of understanding, concern, and well wishes. Please take care and will keep you in my thoughts. Look forward to seeing you back here soon.
