We are on baby bunny watch.
At least one of our does will give birth (tonight hopefully). We bred three, and all three have made nests, but only one has lined her nest with fur. Unsure if it’s just a lack of skill in the new mothers or if we are watching false positives.
After a lot of dithering, I landed on not getting more chicks this season. Our girls are 1 year old and laying well, we have more than enough eggs. So I decided this season we should simplify expectations and focus on rabbit production.
However, I was considering ducklings, our last few ducks are pretty old and finding a duck egg is a rare occasion. Fortunately, we were gifted six ducklings! Since ducklings are $5 a piece at the feed store so six new littles is welcome, and free is a always great price. (With a big bag of feed to boot!)
