    new setup, cage sanitization- especially ear mites

    Ok yall.. I still have this one rabbit. Yes, the 2y/o doe that was actually a buck! Well that florida white buck I bought come up with ear mites. I could not keep it controlled and was unable to treat any more than I already was. Lo and behold this rabbit I've been holding onto forever is right...

    Tree fodder, audio podcast

    Thought this would be of interest to people. I'm really interested in adding mulberry and willow at my place. It's just the getting to all the projects part :mrgreen: But I thought especially even for the urban or small yard people. You could probably even coppice a mulberry in pots on porches...

    Ear mites scourge!

    Ok yall I'm losing my mind! I will be building a stand for multiple cages. If I run a torch over my cages will that sanitize them? I thought I really had it kicked with the VetRx drops in olive oil. Cleared up fast and seemed to stay gone. I think I need to keep up afterwards with a few drops of...

    2021 natural feeding plan

    Ok I'm writing out my new compiled natural feeding plan for next year. A lot of this pulls from my silage thread, so those reading this later on might want to check that thread. I'll try to put all relevant info here though as it comes. I'm still interested in trying silage/haylage/baleage but...

    Difference in grasses?

    I'm trying to get better about identifying grasses in my pastures. I know here in ohio it's mostly cool season grasses. I'm looking at getting some seed to incorporate to my pastures and wondering if there was anything people might know about them. Or if rabbits have shown a preference in...

    Sunn hemp

    It's becoming all the rage for cover crop mixes and catching on quickly with grazers. It's a little pricey seed but the rate of growth, and regrowth, and high protein content :mrgreen: The articles talk about grazing it with cows, sheep, or goats. But I'm thinking small scale you could do a...

    feeding 'trap' area & hutch colony

    Ok I just brought home a 1y/o florida white buck and have a ~2y/o dutch/mini lop/ little bit FG doe. She is the same size as the buck. For now they are in cages. I'm hoping to build a large colony hutch. 3 nests with flip up like a chicken coop for easy access. 10ft x 30inch floor space, 3ft...

    Deep bedding guinea pig colony

    This one's for you Ghost! :popcorn: Among some people I follow online I came across this style of raising hogs (actual pig hogs) in a deep bedding system. Especially in winter and where someone just does not have access to more space. Reviewing it for other reasons I realized that this could...

    silage and haylage

    I have looked into it before but now with the sheep and considering things I can grow/make for many livestock to feed, especially through winter. The biggest thing about it is that you have to have a plan so that once a container/bale/etc is opened you can feed it out quick enough before it...

    hey all! Been mighty busy and not on here much. got a question for you though! I swear these darn ear mites just appear from another dimension :| Last time I got some apple flavored oral horse wormer and gave it to the affected rabbits about a pea size amount. I don't have that right now and...

    Chickens!

    Sooo... I couldn't resist forever... :lol: At work we started getting chicks in mid February. I bought six bantams, straight run. I keep telling myself that means I'll end up with some roosters to sell and keep the hens or end up with a bunch of roosters :roll: But I know someone locally who...

After checking the recent posts and not seeing a new thread I thought to myself "hey someone should do that". Then...

    rex fur oddities, curly??

    At the auction on Monday I came back with three mini rex looking young rabbits. I am really not sure what is up with them because they have.. 'rex like fur'.. I have had mini rex and these gals (all three does yay!) are really wonky looking and feeling fur. It feels soft like rex but none of...

    get barn cats they said... it'll be fun they said...

    No I don't have pics yet :roll: But I have three black kittens about a month old. Long story short there was a bit of a feral cat depopulation happen here the other day. We made sure not to get the few that we knew had litters recently and the one female that could possibly be pregnant. With...

    black vs chocolate californian and cross breeding effects?

    with Californians you can have black or chocolate marked. with those colors how does that fit into the colors they carry? and since the cali markings are a cover-all for whatever else is in the genetics? I have a cali doe. no known history. she seems to be pure cali. pretty good marking on her...

    new rabbit not eating much?? doesnt seem hungry??

    I got this young black dutch doe at the auction on Monday. She hasn't eaten hardly anything. I mean like half or less of "oh ya my dutch are great, they eat nothing compared to my other rabbits". Very little. She has eaten a decent amount of hay. I estimate it at less than my young dutch (from...

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glechoma_hederacea in a group I saw someone had called dead nettle, creeping Charlie. in the comments someone corrected them and that these two plants looks similar and luckily both are edible. (human edible based on the group it is in and not specified otherwise)...
