Lost one Sunday night. The other 2 were good yesterday morning but dead last night when I got home.

Dang, that's too bad.
They can be nice rabbits if you plan to keep her. They're pretty popular and also make for some great meat rabbits.

Too bad, but I expected this.  Next litter you will be prepared and I bet she is a good mom.  Hard when you have no idea they are PG.

Yeah the kids were a little disappointed but I pre warned them that the kids might not make it because of weather.  The female is staying just trying to get her more used to human contact. Two of them showed up one day about 2 months ago on the job site and were living under the pile of steel. Once we started moving the building in anticipation of erecting it they were going to be " homeless " so I caught one and a buddy got the other.

Gotcha. Well if you guys have any questions, feel free to ask. There may or may not be more than 1 and less than 20 rabbits around here somewhere. If we don't have an answer for you, I'll find someone who does.

How can a guy get some Jackelopes? I'm talking trophy size ones.

Haha! That's a good one. I haven't heard that one before.  It's a very special breeding. That's all I can say.

Good advice above.  You sure are learning a lot.

You taught me most everything I know LOL. And that less than 20 number was like 3 weeks ago and I think you told me babies don't count! This was 2 nights ago. Utto.

Suppose your coworker has the buck? Gestation is only thirty days give or take by the number of kits about to be kindled. More couple days early, less couple days late. Lordisis is the position a doe takes when she is in the mood. Put your hand on her back and if she sort of bends down in front and up in the back she is in cycle. Bucks are ever ready. Doe goes into the bucks cage.

Was buying backyard rabbits with commercial type and multiplying them. Got everyone I knew a freezer supply and started running newspaper ads. First question was always: "What breed are they?" Deal was one for ten dollars your choice or three for twenty my choice. Anyone wanting three was interested in eating them. Quick butchering lesson was to pull them out of the freezer. Saying watch me pull a rabbit out of my pocket sort of gives away the magic. Could sale as many five pounders as where taking up cage space for a dollar a pound every two weeks to a processor.     

Went to the fair and joined the American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA). Next local show picked out Chocolate Satin to be my breed and variety. Satin is a commercial type ten pound adults about five pound fryers at about nine weeks. The Satin has a shine like no other breed. Got plenty of ribbons winning legs. Three legs puts Grand Champion on the pedigree.
Saw trophies for best in show but never won one.

Bought my first computer to run a program to print out pedigrees. Show quality breeding stock was twenty for one. Found a new hobby giving advice on message boards. After a while the advice was to search the archives because everything that could be asked about multiplying rabbits had already been thoroughly discussed.

Really had the operation going smooth. Processor closed. All the sudden. Those also ran ready to ship had no where to go. Next bunch was two weeks behind them, on back to the does scheduled for breeding. Could do ten from caged to freezer ready including clean up in about an hour.

How do you want that rabbit cooked that we will be eating AGAIN tonight?
