    Dead kit stuck, can use some good luck...

    Hi, My buck managed to escape, and I wasn't sure if he got one of my retired does, so after 34 days and no sign of pregnancys or any nesting I thought it was a near miss. Nope, it wasn't. Today morning I found my 7yo Red with a kit dangling out, already ripped as she must have tried to pull it...

    DIY manual Hay Bale Press

    Hi, Summer was quite humid this year, and my shed isn't optimal for storing hay, so I lost quite a pile to mold. I can store bales much better, so I needed a press to make bales. The box is about 0.5x0.5m, about 1.2m high, tapering to the bottom a little so that I can get the bales out more...

    Young buck has no clue what to do

    Hi, my beloved, 4yo buck develops problems, don't know if it's a back injury, athritis, or a tumor of some kind, no way to find out, my vet is in full quarantine. Anyway, I got a new buck, 9 months old. Relaxed, friendly guy. Quite exited when meeting the doe, with circling, spraying, nudging...

    Efficient vegetable garden - what to plant now?

    Hi, well, it seems that I'll have plenty of time for a vegetable garden this year, and since we're pretty much heading into a full blown quarantine I would appreciate any thoughts about what to plant. There's limited space, and only so much soil I can cultivate physicly, so what are efficient...

    Doe not eating

    Hi, Magda, my agouti, 6yo, 9lbs doe stopped eating. She got quite skinny this winter, but I attributed that to her room mate which inhales every yummy food and stole her share until I noticed 2 weeks ago. I noticed Monday morning that something is wrong when she ignored her daily piece of...

    Project Cuddlebun

    Hi, my herd consists of 4 breeding does, living in mother-daughter pairs, the older ones are about 6 and heading for retirement in a few years. And there's my herd buck, my 3yo free range house bunny Herr Hase. Well, he's such a friendly guy, but does seem lonely, being single and pretty much...

    Does "broken mutt x broken mutt= REW" mean short life?

    Hi, I try to sell a doe, white, reddish eyes (with a blue tint). Got a mail that she will take her, but for half the price because as a white broken she's going to die early. Gosh, I charge 18€ for a 4kg 8 month rabbit, just to be well above meat prices, I'm not willing to haggle, but would...

    Anyone ever bonded an intact male and a spayed female?

    First, don't wonder about the wording, I used this text on other forums ;) Hi, I'm asking if someone has experience with intact buck + spayed doe living together. Yes, I know, and don't need to be told that this isn't the most promising combination, I would be glad to hear from people who...

    Crap. Another (hopefully) foster dog.

    Today, at about 11 am my fellow breeder in this road A., a rather mentally challenged guy, showed up, trying to get rid of a dog some relatives going to an assisted living facility or what dumped on him. Literally. No papers, no name, he even didn't know the sex. First, I asked his mother, with...

    My house bunny and the foster dog

    Hi, about two months ago I ran into a hutch shortage (rabbitosis... *sigh*), and since my experiences with a doe as free range house bunny are not so good (very destructive) I gave my 2 1/2 year old 8-9lbs (of course intact) herd buck a try. To my utter surprise he was completly housebroken...

    9week old kit throwing up?

    Hi, herded and baited (handful pellets) this litter of 6 back into the hutch after garden time, all ok and active, when I put in the straggler I noticed one of the kits losing a lot of clear liquid from the mouth, saliva or bile, mixed with some chewed pellets. Doesn't seem to have a problem...

    Meat mutts - what have I got here?

    Hi, my rabbits are all meat mutts, and I get very colourful litters. Doe: black (checkered genes), tipped with something I would guess. Buck is a fawn checkered. In this litter I have got black (most likely tipped something), fawn, white (blue eyed), black-white checkered, and those, I...

    My best rabbit sale til now :)

    Hi, just sold 4 bunnys, 9 week old :P I was curious about that guy because all he asked on the phone was about the colours, not if boy or girl, etc. He called about the older litter, but here decided to take 4 checkered fawn (or whatever) from the more recent litter. Turned out he's animal...

    What songs do mean something to you?

    Well, let's start with the actual cover version of "Sound of silence" by Disturbed, I really like that song. And as far as I can understand the lyrics (there is a lot more space for interpretation if it's not your mother tounge, I guess), it could be just about the current Smombie invasion...

    Litter of 15, only 2 kits barely alive...

    Hi, after 4 years of rabbits and lots of healthy litters it now happend to me that a litter went wrong. Red Shrew had 2 litters of 10 and 8, the last one 5-6 weeks ago. 10 days after kindling she escaped her hutch and met the buck, no shrew no more, it just took them mere seconds... I weaned...

    One of my 3 does obviously does not fit in..

    Hi, until now I kept my my 3 breeding does in one hutch, but the situation got worse the last months. Two get along very well, Red Shrew and Black Fury, but the third is always humped, chased, and scared off. Most of the time she spent in one of the hidy holes of the hutch, not moving much, not...

    Pregnant doe licks walls etc. - what is she craving for?

    Hi, something I haven't seen before, my red shrew is due in 4 days, and on any occassion licks walls, plaster, concrete. For me that'a a sign that something is missing in her diet (a wide variety of greens, hay, some pellets, and a little dry bread now and then) I know I have read something...

    Tick on eyelid

    Hi, my youngest doe has a tick on her left eyelid, I don't really dare to try to get it because she is quite shy anyway, I fear hurting her would ruin weeks of getting her tame. Is there any easy way to get rid of it, or should I just wait? 2 weeks ago it would have been difficult to get...

    Wierd coincidences

    Hi, I have my growouts on Willhaben.at (our Craiglist), yesterday morning someone called for a brown checkered buck, would come at 10am. At 12 I called back if there is any point in waiting for him or if plans changed :? . Answer: "What are you talking about, we were there, and bought your...
