More babies!

Keep's Rumor Has It had FIVE babies on 4/20!  Unfortunately, one died for no reason that I can tell and one is a peanut, which leaves her with three healthy agouti babies.  I can handle that! It's a great number for a litter.

On 4/21, Keep's Cat Call finally got it right and had her litter in the nestbox.  Unfortunately, one of her babies didn't make it.  The other, a sable point, has been fostered over to Rumor.

It looks like Keep's Catching Fire missed this round.

The next set of babies aren't due until next week. I am hoping to stay with the 66%+ conception rate that this mini round gave me!

Now that's over...

Whew, now that Easter is "over", things (ie sales) can get back to normal in the rabbitry.

I let Tim take one of the "old man" retirees to the Easter Egg Hunt at one of the churches- Cairo was a HUGE hit! He sat on laps for pictures and posed right up. I guess he misses the show table, but he definitely loved all the attention he got. Spoiled rotten boy.

I have been taking advantage of the warm weather- nearly all the does have been bred! If they all take and produce, this is going to leave me in a bind for space, but that just means I'll have to make some tough decisions on who stays and who goes.

Tim's Florida Whites are doing well- I weaned the doe, Eve, away from her litter of 5.  We've sexed them and it appears we have 3 girls and 2 boys! They are for sale now, all proceeds go to helping us get them to Haiti.

A friend of ours in youth, Sarah Lemons, is joining us in working with the Haiti Project.  She will be getting her florida whites at the end of the month.  I am so excited that there will be a wider pool of genes available, without me having to sacrifice my entire barn to them! :)
