    Any peanut butter treat recipes?

    I was just given 50 jars of almost out of date peanut butter--Is there a treat recipe I can make up for the girls? If not I will donate the peanut butter to a food pantry. If its almost out of date I think I could make up some peanut butter and oat balls and then freeze them. Any ideas would...

    Isn't this the WRONG time of year to molt???

    I have nothing not 1 egg. The weather has been terrible here. That is the only difference in their routine. Its weird because I have 2 seperate coops with 25 each in them and neither pen has had a single egg in over 1 week.

    Isn't this the WRONG time of year to molt???

    I have 50 hens that have completely stopped laying. Nothing for a week now. And I have noticed more and more feathers in the coop. I do have to let you know that I am in Florida and we got 14 inches of rain of the past 8 days. The girls are dry and safe but could they just be stressed and...

    Need Help ASAP!! Daughter brought home 5 wild bunnies.

    Update--we are now down to 3--the little tiny one passed this afternoon. The others are doing really well. They now have their eyes open and jump when we reach into the nest box to get them. We have added some hay and tree material to the box and removed the towels, no need for a bun to smell...

    ---So far so good with the remaining 4. One of the tiny ones is requiring a bit more work than the others. I can't really tell if they are eating the other rabbit poo???? But they are pooing.

    UPDATE-----We lost 1 this morning so we now have 4. They have their eyes open and are getting furry. They are pooing alot-there are tiny black specs in the box and they pee too. We are wiping them down with warm baby wipes. We still have a long way to go--they are realy tiny. We are feeding...

    They do not have their eyes open. I gave them some goats milk before I got the recipe from someone. I have 2 nannies that kidded on Sunday. I also plan to store about a quart of their milk for future emergencies.

    So far still alive---we are feeding at dawn and dusk. And keeping them warm, other than that we are NOT touching them. If they survive we want to release them somewhere safe. They are all eating well-I used the recipe given, but was unable to find "bone meal". I have no idea what that is. Thanks

    OK --- Thanks for all the above mentioned help. Ironically we do have a Widlife Rescue here on our property. We donated a piece of our land to them. The rehab/release--- that said they do not very good luck with rabbits so the lady that runs the place said to use the mention recipe and hope...

    The goats milk is a great idea--we had 2 nannies that kidded yesterday. I am sure they could spare a little. I will give it a try. I knew about feeding on the back because our pet rabbits eat that way. I would think they need to eat more than once a day--maybe???

    Thanks for the advice, I will contact our vet who sees ferrets, guinea pigs and rabbits and see what they say. Putting the bunnies back is just not an option.

    Sorry we must have been typing at the same time. YES -- we know its best to leave and let be. But this entire lot was being cleared and then burned this afternoon. The people did not know and then my daughter (13 years old) spoke up on the way home and said we could try to care for them...

    Yes, we have put them into a nesting box and taken some fur from the others who are shedding. I am not sure if they need a heating pad or what. I have them in the house. I was just reading about feeding the KMR for Kittens and adding whipping cream to it????????

    Need Help ASAP!! Daughter brought home 5 wild bunnies.

    Our neighbor was clearing land and the tree guys came across 5 wild bunnies. Of course my child brought them home. I need to know what to feed them and how often and everything else I should know. They do not have their eyes open and barely any fur. We have pet rabbits, but none with milk. I...
