    Musings on the harlequin gene

    It's been a while since I really posted, but I haven't forgotten everyone. I had to take a little break from raising rabbits for a while. I'm currently enjoying my new little one acre homestead, with it's SUPER COOL large cinder block bunny barn. 8-) 8-) 8-) (Actually, it's an old hvac...

    Liver Fluke?

    Processing a culled purchased doe and found this thing. It's hard feeling, quite firm, but I lost it after the pic was taken, so I didn't get to dissect it. :no: It looks an awful lot like a liver fluke in shape, though it's outside the liver, and I don't know what texture adult flukes have...

    Zass trains service dogs?

    I wrote a little on this subject in the chat bar, but for those who may not of seen.. Last year, I earned a position grooming and training licensed service dogs!! :o Of course, I wasn't qualified for such a thing, but I am being trained along with the pups. :lol: The main breeds we work...

    This year has had SO many

    Kittens None of mine of course, but here they are anyway... In my house, needing me to wake up in the middle of the night to feed them. :? It seems like almost everyone I know is up to their ears in kittens this year. I don't even get it. Spay and neuter programs are lower cost and more...

    Present

    Some of you might have spotted a post where I was telling Akane about Mucky and Thistle-Pig's unfortunate end. Long story short, Mucky, my all time favorite rabbit pet, developed malocclusion in her rear teeth, and was suffering pretty badly by the time we discovered the cause. :cry: After...

    The peeps I won't be quiet about

    I think I commented about these little ones every other day since I placed the egg order. :P This is my third attempt at bantam chickens, and my second at Bantam cochins. Since I only try once a year, these little guys are a few years overdue for me. The first year, I was sold the wrong...

    Lets share some pretty cat pics?

    Right now, I have three cats O.o Which might not seem like a lot to some of you, but it really is to me. :shock: It's like I'm just starting to understand the joy of being a cat lady. :cats-bed: So, haha, it's cat story time. If you don't want to read the story it's OK, just skip to the...

    One year in, thoughts on my utility king pigeons

    OK, so utility pigeons, yeah? They are pretty cool. 8-) Utility breeds are what we call the pigeon meat breeds, because they are selected only to preform a commercial function. The difference between show and meat stock in rabbits might be controversial, but among pigeon raisers there...

    Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease on Vancouver Island, thoughts?

    https://vancouverisland.ctvnews.ca/hund ... -1.3826986 Quotes from the article. This is exactly why I caution people against letting their bunnies free range. Our wild cottontails cannot carry or spread the disease, but the species we keep as pets can, and diseases find a way of getting...

    Help with cat color?

    I took in a nice neutered male cat to get him healed up, because he was being mauled by 3-5 unneutered toms, and there was just no way to get him inside or separated from the other cats where he was. :evil: Long story short, we had to drive over an hour to pick up a cat we didn't want...

    Maggie J!! (Pigeons)

    Here they are Maggie J! The little "cuties" you wanted to see. :P 10 day old utility king pigeons. The squab in this pic has his eyes closed. Shame this one's blurry. A big ole angry pappa bird guarding his eggs. So far, I like the pigeons. They waste zero time making more of...

    For the curious (Graphic)

    OK, so we have two does here who were both under performers. Both who were were born last spring. Doe#1 (top) First litter was scattered all over the wire. I warmed the ones I could and returned them, but she never nursed and I eventually found them all chilled to death. Second litter...

    Homestead update, Feel free to join with pics :)

    First Mucky, investigating some of the hay I'll be spreading around her pen. And of course, wherever Mucky goes, Thistle-pig is sure to follow. :lol: The remainder of my magpie Harlequin herd, reduced to almost nothing due to working every weekend from now until forever. Being...

    Cavy pelts

    I know this is the rabbits for fur forum, but since it was about fur, I thought it might it belong here more than in around the coffee table. Feel free to move it if you'd like to. :) Just wanted to make a thread where people could toss out thought or ideas on the subject in general. I did...

    Help me identify this buns breed?

    This cute little bun was found hopping around outside my place of employment, along with it's dam and a few other kits. So far several have been caught and moved into homes. The color is the easy part, booted broken black. The parts might be a bit odd looking for the species, but I'm pretty...

    Rabbitry statistics

    Fjhmom posted some rabbitry stats on another thread. It looked like fun, so I figured I'd start a thread, for anyone who might also want to post their stats. I hope she doesn't mind me quoting her post here. (Please tell me if you do) I've been playing with the Hutch app, which provides...

    Rabbits and ecolocation

    With a far-fetched sounding title like that, where should I start? :? Well, my husband and I were sitting on the couch and enjoying the company of one of our buns today. He has some incredibly sharp hearing when it comes it high pitched noises. He pointed out that the bun (Coconut) was...

    Exciting little doe

    I happen to have it on fairly good authority that most show judges wouldn't DQ her for that partially split face. 8-) I've noticed that harlequin breeders learn to judge their buns with a whole lot of wishful thinking. :lol: Well, her right ear has a little black. The face splits in...

    Seriously, don't laugh

    Does anyone else see what I'm seeing here? I'm working with a really bad camera here, but I swear there is agouti-esque ticking and even a slight ring when I blow into the fur. It's not just a spot where black transitions to white, and it's not just brindled hair. Brindling is...
