Moving Out the Rabbits AND the Feed!

I'm going to be busy! Fun times.

I'm continuing on with my goal (and promise to Tim) that I will get all the rabbits out of the garage. The exception may have to be Bandit, because there just is no room for him in the rabbitry and he kicks up shavings like crazy, making him a less than ideal house companion. To this end though, I've just recently managed to clear a 4 hole stacker out of the garage! It's been sold and will be picked up this coming weekend, so I don't have the temptation to put more rabbits in to it!

I'm also looking in to where I can make cuts to my herd, so I can get the last 4 animals out of the garage. I think I might be able to put one or two more holes in the rabbitry- or I could always take my shelves out and put a 3 holer there. It's a lot to think about, since I enjoy having my shelves, but don't really use them for all that much. It's something I could easily move to the garage, anyway. Hmm...

I may end up with a few more single holes or stackers available for sale at some point. We'll just have to wait and see!

I'm also switching feeds. I don't know what to yet, I've been getting advice and opinions from lots of other breeders and it's really hard to make a good decision. I know whatever I do will likely greatly impact my herd, either for better or for worse, so it's not something I'm going to rush in to. At the same time, there is a certain urgency there because I want them back in the best condition they can be in as soon as possible.

I'll keep you guys updated on what I decide to go with.

Michelle Uptagrafft said to mix purina professional with fibre 3. They haven't messed with that formula yet. Also, the dealer you buy from already should be able to order it for you.

I think I may be leaving Purina behind and trying Pen Pals for a bit. I think that's like my only other option right now. lol

Hmm, I was feeding both Pro and Fibre 3 for a while (separately). My animals were starving to death on Fibre 3 and on Pro they had bad flesh condition. I used to really love Purina, but I worry about continuing to use it- the bags are filling up more and more with dust and fines. :( And this is FRESH feed!

Breezy, let me know how penpals works out for you!
