All Quiet on the Western Front

The title of a very good book- and of our blog today!

It's quiet here in Western NC. The girls have their nestboxes and the first of them have gone overdue. I suspect some kits may be born tonight- mostly because the weather has turned very chilly the past few days.

We all know how rabbits wait and try to have their babies in the worst possible weather, don't we?

I say "all quiet" for another reason- the following was posted on a message board. Whether or not there are problems in New Hampshire, I feel it's not a bad idea to warn ALL breeders to take extra precautions against those who would prefer to harm us and our animals.

"If you know someone with these breeds who sells for both pets and meat in the New Hampshire area, I STRONGLY suggest that you let them know that they may be targeted by anti-breeders. If there is ANY weak spot in their barn/herd, they need to deal with it, immediately.

Also, it would certainly be an excellent idea to increase/improve their security.

This warning is from a post on a pet list....so please, be aware. Next time, it could be you."

So there you have it- everyone try to stay safe, and keep an eye on those stubborn does!

Keep's Rabbitry
