no worries thanks for the info
One year I will sit down and try and study chicken genetics.
The only thing that I sort of half get is making sex linked F1 crossbreds. The chipmunk thing with Legbars amazes me. As for silkies - faggeddabowdit - I still have to hatch one.
Hey guys, my neighbor has a bunny that they found and want to give us. They said we can just put him in with the chickens and give him access to the run and coop. Our coop has sand on the floor. We really don't know anything about keeping bunnies (nor do we know about chickens, we're learning as we go) but is it ok to just put him in there? What's he need?
I know nothing about rabbit raising - except for eating. Hopefully others here can help.
Just in case it does not work out
Rabbit Stew Recipe
1 rabbit, about 3 pounds, cut up
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup chopped celery
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon salt
1 bay leaf
4 cups water
4 cups dry red wine
2 cups diced carrots
4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
4 ounces sliced mushrooms, sautéed
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup water
Directions for rabbit stew.
Dredge rabbit pieces with 1/2 cup flour. Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat; brown rabbit pieces on all sides. Add celery, onion, salt, pepper, bay leaf, 4 cups water, and wine; bring to the boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and simmer rabbit stew for 2 hours. Add carrots, potatoes, and mushrooms; cook for about 25 to 30 minutes longer, or until vegetables are tender. Combine 1/4 cup flour and 1/3 cup water; stir until well blended and smooth. Stir flour mixture into the broth; cook and stir until thickened.
Rabbit stew recipe serves 4.
LOL! My 7 yr old daughter would be DEVASTATED if we eat the bunny. He would strictly be a pet...another mouth to feed. Is bunny feed expensive? We don't have to take him, I've always said absolutely no bunnies, because they're messy...but if it can live in the chicken coop and use the run...well then that's not too bad.
I found this thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/186971/can-chickens-and-rabbits-live-together-in-the-same-coop
From what I can find, at Tractor Supply rabbit food runs the same as chicken food ($13-18 for 50lb). Ofcourse, one rabbit eats far less than a flock of birds. They like to nibble on hay and grass/weeds/veggie scraps, much like the chickens.
Thanks!!! I think I'm going to pass for now. With the chewing and the digging....we're still just getting our feet wet with chickens, kwim?
you could get the rabbit and cook it.
we dont need to know.
Kev is the genetics genius - taught me the little I know
chicken x chicken = more chickens. All you need to know!
