My beautiful mutt babies

Post Number:#1  Unread postby RebelScumHan » Sat Apr 07, 2018 10:31 pm

A while back, I tried breeding my mostly Flemish, part Californian doe to an AMerican Blue/NZ/Flemish mix male. He was too rough and she fought him off. I had a tiny young velveteen lop male I needed to know was viable, so I stuck him in with her and she let him get three fall offs. For a while, I didn't know what to expect. The first male (Obi-Wan) did get two fall-offs, but he had never produced a litter before. Neither did my lop (Duchovny). I ended up with 11 little chestnut mutt creatures and one single chinchilla girl. We suspected Obi was the father since one of his parents was chinchilla, except now, all the babies lop! 6 weeks old and every single one of them has giant, floppy ears, Velveteen shape, and some have Duchovny's crazy bug-eyes. They even lay and relax in the same pose he does. Most lop to one side :lol:

I have no idea what to do with this litter... but this has been a fun experience. They're so polite, too. They just line right up single file and wait for feed instead of lose their everloving minds like the other buns do :lol:

If you don't sell them you'll end up like me. A big feed bill and up to my butt with rabbits.

:pinkbunny: A similar thing happened to me. Awhile back I have a Himalayan doe and was planning on breeding her to my Himalayan buck. She got pregnant and killed the two she gave birth to. This happened again and I decided to give her one last shot. The day before we rebred her she got in the pen of a mini rex "doe." I let it fly because we thought it was a doe. I bred her to the Himalayan buck and 1 month later I had nine spotted babies. I was so upset. I went and checked that "doe" again only to find a buck in "her" place. The fact that she killed all her pure Himalayan babies and kept nine crosses kinda ticked me off but they were fun to have around.
