We are growing!
Tim has added a new structure downslope from our original rabbitry structure, but it is twice as big. Each of the 3 equal sections of both buildings holds up to 8 cages. We have 2 of the 3 sections filled with cages, so we just need to get the wire and other materials to build the remaining 8 cages and we will be finished with construction on our rabbitry. Once finished that will be 24 rabbit cages. Weee-doggies! Haha!
Due to recent health issues with our New Zealand Whites (see the “snuffles post”), we have decided to buy some crossbred Californian/New Zealand Whites from a trusted breeder to add to our herd, as we have read that the crossbreed rabbits tend to have better immune systems then the purebreds.
I also added a couple pictures of our coop progress, the comfrey is coming in nicely, the rainbarrel system works great, and we are now getting on average 22 eggs per day from our ladies.
