I sold 4 of my main breeding stock of rabbits today. I've given them plenty of chances to have many babies. They would only give me around 3 a piece each time they were bred. So as much as I liked them, it was time to say bye bye.
My plan is to get more though. I can't go without having ANY rabbits. I know a breeder who I'm going to buy some more off of. He has around 200 rabbits, young and old. Plus he has many different types. I just might have to get a few different ones. I'm not real sure yet. I am going to get two or three breeding rabbits. I know for sure I'm going to get some New Zealands. They are all white. Not sure about getting Californias right now. They are the ones with the dark ears. I like them, but it all depends on how much money I have. Plus, it also depends on my cage space.
I did keep two Champagne D' Arnets. They're these cute grey ones. They're born black and turn this color as they get older. These are REALLY good meat rabbits. They have many babies and they are good mothers. So now I have to find a breeding male. Ya, wish me luck with that. They're kind of hard to find. If I can't find a buck, I'll just breed them to the New Zealand buck until I do find one. It doesn't matter what color their fur is when they are in the roaster. hehehe
So that's what I've got to look forward to in the near future.
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, rabbit seller and soon to be rabbit buyer.
