Thanks D Very Happy

I was waffling about keeping them until I realized my hubby's mindset had infected me like a kind of "its gotta make money" virus so I have now taken the antidote for that and am really happy I kept them all.

Patches is now over her absess and is ready to breed so she is going to get "aquainted" with Captain Rex and we shall see how she does.

And now we are onto another generation! Don't you just love rabbits Laughing



This is Honey ( mum to Patches, Tiger and Stripes) with her newest litter. They are Rusty's last litter before being culled for an abscess.



Same buns, just different positions. Honey is the mostly white Tricolor in the front.



This is Tiger with her newest litter. The buck is - or courtesy of the dog, WAS - Stripes. The little devils took the chance to have a midday snack instead of posing for good pictures.

Tiger's kits again because you just cant have to many Harlequin pictures. The deep red kits are not hers by birth, she is fostering them. They are turning out a little bit special.



I just couldnt get the little things to hold STILL!!! But got the best picture I could of this one. Its beautiful!



This it Tiger's last litter by Rusty. He was a New Zealand Red. I am trying to get HIS size and grow out rate with HER color. A few more generations needed, I think.

The lighter one checking out my hand for treats is the buck and the other two are does.



She has the deep red I want so, for so soon into the project, I am happy with how its turning out.

Just one more, cause they are so cute. The manure pile the mum has decided to make isnt though Rolling Eyes she pulls hay out of the hay rack JUST to poo on it!

Very annoying!

Hay + poo = good compost though, GB

Shall clean it out again and feed it to the garden. Pure sand is ALWAYS hungry!
