A few years ago, after being on a waiting list for 2 yrs, a pet store in Reno finally called and told me when I could go pick up my baby monkey.
When I finally got there, I was talkin with the guy, and thank god he was honest and told me the truth about owning a monkey.
These are the words that...
Hey WMR, I got my pet rabbits and my meat rabbits . . .
Imma give you a few words of advice.
Dont start paying attention to how cute they are, or give them cute names, or pet them, or get attached to them in any way.
I consider myself a DIY kinda guy, and there aint much that phases me, but it...
Ive seen all the vids on YT, including the one you are talking about with the pig on its back.
Im afraid that Ill be dealing with most of the negative aspects of your reply with this pig.
I put an ad on CL right after I did this one, earlier today... no response as of yet.
So my girlfriends mom has a rescue potbelly pig that is in dire need of having its feet trimmed.
The nails are about 4-5 inches long and the vet wants 1500$ just to trim them.
I told her Id look into it.
The vids I have found on YT and such are not very helpful as far as details.
She was a pedigreed flemish doe, 8 months old only.
I dunno what happened, she was fine last night when I fed them all.
She was curled up in her hidebox like she was snuggled in the hay . . .
She was also the only rabbit I actually paid for . . .
I hear ya on opinions!
Dont get me wrong, I love rabbits.
All my rabbits are rescues, they all had either behavior problems or were "not cute and bunnylike", which is how I ended up with all my rabbits.
I know from experience, once a rabbit is not "cute" in the traditional sense, they get...
Thanks, they are pretty cute as babies . . .
But they always grow up . . .
Mamma is big and ugly, if the flemish is the dad then he is BIG(but a handsome devil;) ) and so these cute little babies are gonna be some big ugly gangly half-breed rabbits.
I made an appt to have all the rest of my...
CHICKEN WHISPERER HAS HAD THE SAME EXPERIENCE AS I HAVE... IN THESE HOT SOUTHERN CLIMATES THEY ARE ABSOLUTE ASSASSINS. EVIL DOESNT COME CLOSE. SEEMS THE HOT WEATHER MAKES THEM UNUSUALLY IRRITABLE?? I UNDERSTAND THEY ARE MUCH TAMER IN NORTHERN CLIMATES
The only problem I have with this...
So here they are!
5 healthy babies, and the colors are really startin to show.
There is the agouti, there are 2 steel, and 2 blacks(1 has a white foot).
I guess my steel flemish must be the daddy, tho to my knowledge he has never been within 10ft of this particular female . . .
They are soo...
Their little eyes are open now, and they are really active inside the nest now.
Wont be but a few more days till they start venturing out of the nest I think . . .
Ill get lots more pics once they come out of the nest, its soo cold out I dont wanna stress em out.
Baby rabbits make the cutest...
K, so I just found THIS.
It breaks down each rabbit into phenotype.
I understand that the "_" mark means "can be anything/doesnt matter"
Can somebody explain the order to me?
line 1 is the chestnut- A_B_C_D_E_
if I am right:
A_ = pattern
B_ = black color
C_ = dont understand...
I had always thought that "wild" was what happens when the genes dont line up right, they kinda just revert back to square1/natural?
Whoever originally thought up all this nonsense had entirely wayyyy too much time on their hands . . .
I guess Im just gonna stop trying to understand it...
K, so I know agouti color, tho I call it "wild", plain and simple.
I do not have a buck that is that color.
My bucks are:
flemish- rew, steel(purebred)
californian x2 (look purebred)
Any other male is fixed for sure, by me
It has already been...
