    Welcome to all the new names! Cute bunnies! We used to have some, but they became really good at escaping, and escaped into the wrong backyard, unfortunately. My husband came home late one night to find them (or what was left) in a pastic bag on the front doorstep, with an anonymous note saying our nextdoor neighbour had killed them. Nothing we could do, really, as there was no real proof, but I'm not particularly friendly with him now...

    Some of you might remember me mentioning my friends in the Bega area who have started farming chickens for meat? They had their first processing day at the abbatoir yesterday...it's a great read, and if any of you are in the area and want to get involved, I reckon it would be brilliant to be able to produce your own meat, but have someone help with the icky part...

    90% of female rabbits will die young unless they are desexed or having babies on a regular.. Almost all will develop cancer in the uterus.. I just had mine desexed she's not even two and she had signs of cancer already.. They're great pets but no one tells you about having a female desexed and a cheap pet soon becomes a very expensive one! Boys are easy and cheaper to desex but for females it's a big operation

    Female rabbits are exactly like ferrets if you don't have them desexed. All my ferrets were desexed as soon as they were old enough :)

    Well it's raining again here . The council has 4 tractors slashing the grass along the main road in readiness for the Huon Show this Saturday. Why they didn't do it last week, not in the middle of school bus run, I will never know. To add to the bedlam, the big semis hauling the carnival rides are all rolling in . On a brighter note, the forecast for Saturday is fine and 20 . Should be a good day for show jumping !
