Well I'm not going to lie...when you have a rabbit you can't just have one! :pinkbunny: I have 8 rabbits at the moment. 3 are leaving me soon ( rescue I took in and rehomed with my best friend kindled unexpectedly!) So I guess that means I have "officially" 5. I just want to see how many rabbit talk regulars have :P

Yes, I have my rabbits in a colony. Two floor pens, actually. I like to remove the buck just before the does kindle... so he commutes from one pen to the other. Occasionally he has to spend a few weeks in a cage, depending on the population in the pens. I need more grow-out space.

Wow! What setup do you have your rabbits sky?

And that's really cool Maggie. How do you keep up with which baby belongs to which doe? Easy to tell who daddy is,but do you find ,if you've ever had to, fostering easier in a colony setting? How do you introduce outside rabbits into your herd, or are they all related so fights don't break out often if ever?

I've never had to foster in the colony, but I think it would be pretty easy. I can't always tell for sure which kits belong to which doe, especially if they kindle in the same tunnel within a day or so of each other. Since the does are closely related (grandmother, mother, daughters) and the kits all have the same father it doesn't matter much. They are all meat mutts.

I started with rabbits in 2005 with two does and a buck. Since then, I have only brought in three outside rabbits. I like a closed herd. I've never seen a fight among our rabbits. Very occasionally a scuffle or a short chase but no real fights.

Right now... 2 working does and 1 working buck, 1 pet doe and 1 retired (pet) buck. So, 5 right now. We will be redoing the rabbitry chutes soon, and then I will replace the working doe who died a couple of months back.

The pet doe came with one of the working does. They were both pets, and had been raised together since they were very small. But... the pet doe is a dwarf, so she'll always be a pet. The retired buck was going to be our working buck, but he's too much of a gentleman with the ladies. Thankfully, he was insistent enough the first time to get us started, and now his son is our working buck. :) Our setup is a typical hung cage setup of meat rabbits.

So we'll be back to 6 adults soon. When we were at the height of breeding last year, we had some 57 rabbits at one time, including all the ones in the growout cages, the little puffballs harrassing their moms, and the popples still in the nest.
We are right to take alarm at the first experiment upon our liberties.

Currently I have 10 sr does, 6 sr bucks, 20 babies in the nestboxes, 9 jr bucks in the grow out pen awaiting butcher time. That comes 45 which is subject to change at any given moment.

Oh, and we do cages.

My current approach to would-be-suitors of my beautiful teen daughters is to have "the talk" with the young man on butcher day. It is so effective!
