Around the Homestead

I haven't updated about my rabbits in a long time!  The "baby" rabbits are almost 15 weeks now and range between 5 lbs and 5 lbs 10 oz.  Four of the five will be butchered in the next few weeks.  We'll be keeping one doe as breeding doe for next spring.  We're raising the Creme D'Argent breed.

We also just bred Sally again, so we're expecting another litter in the next 30 or so days.  Hopefully it will be another happy healthy litter.
And lastly, we're making slow but steady progress on building out the chicken coop which started its life as a 3'x6' rabbit hutch.  It should be ready soon and we have five Ancona hens ready to take up residence!
So that's what's going on around the homestead.  Didn't get as much as I wanted canned, but I will say I canned more than last year and I'm learning something every year.  I'll post about the rabbits again when Sally kindles and we have some new little bunnies!
