Meet Sally, our Creme D'Argent heritage breed doe who was bred today. Hopefully we'll have babies in 31 days! She starts our official "meat department" on our homestead!
Wordless hopping. We raised rabbits once but then found it easier to just let my husband hunt deer because one or a few can last all year. Lots of homesteading we're I'm from that go back to the back to the land movement and still goes on today.
Pretty rabbit :)http://harrietandfriends.com/2010/05/whats-cuter-than-a-baby-panda/
Very sweet looking!
WOW! 31 days ?Now I know why the expression "breds like rabbits"Good luck ,wishing you a large litter or whatever the work is for a multiple birth.
So cute! Kudos to you for raising your meat! That is one step to local living that I'm not sure I could take, you are brave!
She is lovely! I am interested in raising rabbits for meat, and I am wondering what you feed your rabbits. Is there such a thing as "pastured" rabbits, and would feeding them fresh greens be the equivalent to a "pastured" animal?Thanks!
Laurel, from what I know, it's ok to set them out a bit to eat the grasses etc, but they have a sensitive digestive system so it's best to feed them the pellets and alfalfa hay and bring in a few greens as treats.Also, currently all the pelleted brands contain soy. There's a few local people working on creating soy free rabbit feed.
