    Foraging plants for 2 giant rabbits & raising them in an apartment room, is it possible?

    I think the smell will become an issue when the babies come. they are constantly peeing and it gets everywhere! I don't see much use litter training the babies considering they are to be used for meat.. but that's just me. Foraging 100% of their diet will be hard because like many have...

    Stillborn

    my first time I experienced 2 still births, it is not easy. I tried the chest compressions but this did nothing. Sometimes it is just nature, and we have to move on. If you did revive them what's to say they wouldn't be compromised in some way. Im sorry you went through this, try doe again and...

    Question about falloffs

    Good thinking, a neutral cage might be best. You can also swap them: put him in her cage and her in his so they get used to each other's scent. Then put him back in his cage with her and see if that helps.

    I would guess that black tea contains more tannins?

    Damp 🐇 Pellets

    very cool setup! thank you for sharing!! I honestly don't know why I decided grain free, I think it evolved from me wanting to avoid GMO's and turned into a bit of an obsession TBH. I do now have access to non-GMO grains and want to start incorporating them as many folks do feed grain. Also my...

    New to processing pelts

    Some people pickle the hide with alum and salt as well. both fairly natural ingredients. I will try it in September and create a post with my comments. there is a youtube video I am referencing. I will attempt to find it now

    Damp 🐇 Pellets

    Hahahaha I can see that, there is always so much going on! good thinking feeding the pellets to the chickens I'm sure they see it as a special treat worthy of fighting over 😅 mine do the same thing when I bring them scraps and such. I recommended the timed feeding because I pay an exceptionally...

    First time butchering yesterday. What to do with heads, ears, feet, tails, etc?

    Thank you for this fabulous rabbit head bone broth, not sure why I didn't think of it!

    Blood

    I was just thinking about how to use blood, thank you all for sharing your insight! I might at the very least save it for the dogs, or gardening seeing as the texture of blood pudding and sausage turns my stomach. Also a7736100 has a great point, you'd need A LOT of blood to make a pudding...

    Two bucks

    Why not! unless you want to keep a record. But if you aren't then I don't see why this would be an issue.

    How to preserve organs after a dispatch

    I would doubt it would go bad in the fridge unless you suffered a power outage. That said I preserve my organs by first soaking them in cool water to clean them off then bagging them by type and freezing them. the heads I don't bother cleaning I just freeze them. I also save feet and ears...

    Question about falloffs

    I read you should only mate them consecutively in a 24-48hr time frame because does can have two uterus. I would chalk it off and plan accordingly. Moving forward you can have them go at it a few times in the same day. I bring my does in to my bucks cage and within 10 minutes he's fallen off a...

    Damp 🐇 Pellets

    I would stick to feeding only as many pellets as they can finish in a 30 minute time frame. This way you don't need to worry about potential waste. It does add another step though as you will need to return to feed them more often. I feed mine pellets 2x a day and refill hay and grass 3x a day...

    White pus coming out of eyes w/ nose blood now

    interestingly my kit did not develop this in the nesting box, it happened in the grow out pen. and just the one out of 19 kits is affected. Hoping to get this under control, poor thing :( thank you for the idea! I will look on eBay!

    White pus coming out of eyes w/ nose blood now

    I have a kit with a similar eye, to me that looks like nest box eye (not an expert). I have purchased some eye wash from amazon, hopefully it is delivered soon. I was instructed to use terramycin by a fellow rabbit owner, this was also suggested by many you tubers. If you are in the USA you can...
