See these little cuties? There are actually three of them. I have waited 5 extra months for them to grow up so that I could breed them. These pictures of when they were one month old. They are a lot bigger now.
I was going to breed them to this fine looking feller. You can't tell it in this picture, but he is a solid black New Zealand. He's a nice big boy.
Well, today was going to be breeding day. I put one of the young ones in with the Big Boy. They went around and around and around. Then......fur started to fly. I mean, big tufts of fur. The young one was tearing fur from the Big Boy. It went on and on and on.
I had to get them apart! So I grabbed the young one and got it out of the cage. As I was holding it, I had a thought. Maybe I didn't get the sex right with the young ones. So I looked. I turned it over and right there in between it's legs were..... Oh My Goodness!!!! That's not a girl!
I checked another one. SAME THING!!! I checked the last one...... I am officially revoking my rabbit sexing license. It was a buck also! I have waited 5 month and fed these suckers lots of food for nothing!!!!
I guess I'll be having rabbit stew pretty soon. Back to the drawing board. Looks like I have to wait another 2 months for my other three young'ens to be old enough to breed. Don't worry, I checked them again. Yep, they are does. Hopefully.
So until next time,
