Well looking for more info on rabbits i happened to stumble upon you all here. A few months back now i some how got the idea to add rabbts to my homestead. I picked up new zealand whites 1 male and 2 femaile. Christmas day we got are first batch. Started with 9 and down to 5.

My wife and i live in Airazona. We like to garden, Raise chickens for eggs, rasie Tilapia in a aquaponics setup and now we have meat rabbits. :)

Welcome, Nathan, and congratulations on the Christmas popples! :razz:

We may eventually try raising catfish in barrels. I wish I liked tilapia... it's so much cheaper than anything else. None of us likes tilapia. Oh, well. :roll:

Tilapia is a kind of fish well-suited to aquaculture.

Hi Nathan! Welcome to RT. Did you happen to see if the stork was wearing a Santa hat?

I didn't see much fur in the nest, so that may account for your losses. The kits may have gotten chilled. You can pull more fur from the doe's belly, or add dryer lint to the nest- you can also save fur from other does to add to nests if they need it.

Congratulations on your litter! I hope the remaining kits do well. :)

I had a Tilapia in my cichlid tank- he was named Mick Jagger because of his huge lips!

Hello and welcome Nathan!

Hey - I wonder, could we add Tilapia to our pond or would they take over? We have Bass and Blue Gill. Would they survive an Indiana winter?

Welcome! I'm new here too, haven't had any litters yet though, so you're ahead of me.


@Tarilynn - Tilapia are very sensitive to temperature changes, they are a warm water breed, so they would have to be overwintered in a controlled environment (like in the house, or a greenhouse) to survive.

The following user would like to thank pyronymph for this post
