    Hay nets for rabbits

    I feel silly for even asking this.. But if I bought a hay net for the colony, would they just chew holes through it? What if I made a hay net out of some kind of wire? What kind of wire would I use? What guage? Has anyone trooped this before? I'd like something I can also make a downsized...

    ISO: Hay near Burnsville NC

    I pay $5 for a square bale currently but am willing to pay up to $8 ($8 is feed store price, but I'd like to find something of better quality) I've been buying 3 bales at a time otherwise the 4th typically molds. I'm buying for goats and rabbits, so preferably no alfalfa.

    Is it worth it to breed and have someone else dispatch?

    So, over the past couple years, I have bred a ton of rabbits and been selling them for $5 a piece to a girl who butchers and sells the meat. I don't have the space, nor am I in a good location to process, we live right off a main highway and I had been processing in the carport but it's a...

    Done with fleas!

    So my pup's had fleas and I've done everything, DE, garlic, peppermint oil and lavender oil, so far the only thing that's slightly helped is a coconut oil with citronella oil mixed into it, I cover him in it and it keeps the fleas at bay until the smell wears off. So here's my question, what do...

    How old is too old for breeding?

    I have a beautiful, sweet now 4 year old REW doe, she's struggled the last two litters and had 1 DOA in each. I'm thinking it was because she was fat, as I had realized between litters she didn't lose as much weight as they normally do, so I've cut back on her feed quite a bit, she's been way...
