Bunnies Galore!

It was only a matter of time till Jamie wanted to raise and sell animals for himself.

So he's started a few months ago with meat rabbits.

He actually loves the taste of rabbit so we figured what's the worse that can happen? If they don't sell we can put them in the freezer!

I know, I know...that sounds mean, but we do live on a farm and we are
trying to become more self sufficient.

So we started with one male and two females.
We bred the females (or rather the male rabbit did) and about 2 weeks Voila! 20 baby bunnies!!
We lost 5 because that is alot for two mothers to take care of, but the rest are nice and fat and cute as buttons! They've just started opening their eyes to.

We've since acquired a few more females and a male. Soon we will have to decide what females we are keeping and what males we're keeping, because we only have room for so many.

Already, Jamie is having issues with selling the overstock!
I knew this would happen. One is a rescued female and is definitely not a meat rabbit. She's small and cute. She's been named Snuffles. See where I'm going with this?

Yea, I'm still not too convinced about this rabbit venture.

We'll have to wait and see. In the meantime. They're fun to cuddle. 

5 day old kits.

Jamie and 10 day old kit.

Isn't she/he fat?!

Have a Blessed Day!
