First babies of 2018 born at our new house,
Two litters as the little one on the right nearly didn't make it, his mum Mia only had him and I found him cold in the nest, he was warmed up in my bra and fostered with the other two babies of Pearls.
These little cuties will be looking for new forever homes at the end of Feb, they will be homed as a single white house bunny and a pair.
For those of you that have visited us here you would of meet the three "red Devils"
Socks, Rubin and Rimmer they are normally so helpful, getting under your feet or eating your shoe laces, but they like nothing more on a chilly day to be warm indoor althoughteron the mat, rather awkard really as they don't move and you have to carefully tred over them.
My best boys Colin and Clive neutered brothers – just love coming indoors for a tidy up.
cuddle and bit of TV.
Colin and Clive
Funny when you think how many people think you can't have neutered boys together, we always find this is the best combo.
Not sure what the red house rabbits would make of them- probably would think they are "slippers"
At the grand age of 10 years- Checkers peacefully slipped away in his sleep, the picture of health, all his tea eat up, he had had a good whizz around the shed the day before -chatting to his favorite bunny friends……RIP old man. The last of my Tri Dutch
Rupert has been a busy boy
after spending hours -making a hollowing in the dirt- he now spends most the day-chilling in the sun.
Such a hard life!!!!!
With the weather suddenly taking a nose drive-after getting our hopes
up of a nice summer, these two baby Dutch have got it right-just stay snugly in bed. These are just 8 days old the latest babies from Wedget and Checkers.
I had just feed this family of Netherland Dwarfs, mummy Phoenix was sitting on her
shelf the other 2 babies were in the nest box-and I do believe the baby in the bowl was saying to his family ” the silly cow (being me) has missed us” ~~nom nom~~.
One way of getting all the good bits.
Sunday’s breakfast – and the family are not being tricked today.
Mum & babies
Matching the right bunnies to the correct home can sometimes be tricky, long haired bunnies require that little bit more from their owners in terms of coat care and grooming.
They need to housed in the right size and style of hutch to help the new owners cope.
Lion Lop pair
It’s not a good idea for long haired rabbits to have Un-limited access to an outside run-these bunnies are best only put out on good dry days or exercised indoors. They are best homed in hutches raised completely off the ground or as house bunnies in indoor cages.
I have at the moment 3 bonded pairs of long haired bunnies waiting for that right home, these pairs the buck has already been neutered & is living happily with his companion.
Dwarf Fox pair
Are you the right home for these stunning bunnies? More info on them here
Owl’s litter is now 12 weeks old. I’m keeping the little Blue eyed Black and White called “Rabbit” I’m really pleased with her- just wish the whole litter were like her in type. The REW buck, “Stig” is lacking in overall type and I still don’t like his type- I hate his narrow head and too longer ears, he does pose and is short in body-so just need to look at those points, till I manage to Bred a Buck I prefer. Honeypot (Agouti/white Fox) and Roo (red Fox) are due babies next week-both mated to little Sebastian Red Agouti Netherland Dwarf, breed out of Fox.
Rabbit has her first show tomorrow-at Medway towns-only going in the pet class but will get the breed seen. Wish her luck………………………………………….
Rupert our yard bunny-thinks he so helpful-I think he is just a pest.
Not only does he help himself to everything in sight- he then leaves hundreds of little presents on the back doorstep.
It can be like dicing with death when you come out of the house- avoiding the cannon ball sized poo’s and not treading or falling over him.-As he just won’t move. At least he has stopped chasing the dogs- poor Zeeba who is smaller than him is only just recovering.
