    Rabbit doe not gathering hay means not pregnant?

    I have a doe due soon and I caught her gathering hay 3 days ago, I moved her into her birthing area (nest box, plenty of hay, greens, fresh water, away from her sisters) but now she isn't trying to make a nest anymore. This is my first time with rabbits so I'm wondering if this is normal with...

    So they are all siblings. There is a black one (the one exploring the plate), but I gave him back to his original owners because the owner's son was crying very bad and missing the bunny..

    I am using a Brinsea mini advance. So I set my eggs on April 6th, at 9:00 AM. [I like to do things early so the eggs will hatch in the morning, waiting for night time hatches just kills me] Set the day at 21. All is good, right temp, later at night I check the bator at sometime past 10 PM and it...

    Lamancha with blue eyes and a cute pygmy - First time goat owner I am excited!

    I pick them up this Saturday and they also get their shots that day too! I am SO giddy. Both seem to not like people too much but they're young so in time they might learn to like me :-] Both wethers, I don't really want bucks... Main reason to keep them is for pets and to clear some bothersome...

    What is the smallest breed of goat?

    I was thought it was pygmy and nigerian, but today while looking for a pair of pet goats I saw a trio of super tiny goats.. Not sure if they were pygmies. They were brownish tan, fluffy, stubby, round shaped, and were the same size as my 4 month old Queensland heeler puppy. That was the parents...

    New neighbors - Hopefully I can keep my birds

    They moved in yesterday.. I hope they don't mind that their neighbor to their right has chickens, ducks, and a pair of turkeys. The neighbor to their left has chickens too but not as many as I do. I figure you have to check out a house before you consider buying it right? I mean that's what we...

    Can I hatch turkey eggs with a brinsea mini advance?

    I was told that turkey eggs are different from chicken eggs.. From reading Porter's guide to hatching turkey eggs, I noticed that he mentions using a styrofoam incubator. I do have one but I have a better brinsea mini advance that gives me good hatches, the other one doesn't do me much good.. I...

    I have a 4 month old Queensland heeler puppy who is good for the most part, but if she sees another dog she goes crazy. She wants to play with whatever dog and will not listen to me when I say come, whistle, call her name, clap, etc etc. If there is no dog around she will come to me when I do...

    I check my eggs once a day, it's day 20 and a few of them have huge air sacs, like one side has a huge dip, and those ones have internally pipped. I can hear peeping if I tap on them.
