Long story short, after 2 unsuccessful tries I mated all 3 of my does. This was their last chance since they have been bumming off me for 6 months. Anyway, the spring air worked & I had a shock.


The first doe gave birth & ate all her kits then dies from a fit of some sort 2 days later


BUT....

The second doe has given birth to 7 kits & the third doe has also had seven kits!


I'm delighted, but the freezer has decided to break NOW of all times & since I quit my job recently (family issues) there is not even a pound to spare for a new one.


What the hell am I going to do with all these buns?

I can't keep them past 12 weeks except one or 2 because of the feed they'll consume. That was the plan.

Also, the cooker is broken, we need a new one of those to.
Money, Money, Money!

Granted rabbit feed isn't all that expensive, but 17 rabbits could send me under

Sell them, give them away!!. Why breed with no back up plan? Don't answer unless u want none of my beeswaxs(lol) but have a back up plan always. Mines to sell, if that fails give away, if that fails, eat.

Oh trust me, there's a back up plan
I should have specified, there's my nans giant freezer halfway across town, but its just not ideal at the moment although we might be moving there soon & then there will be no more BYC for me
.

I couldn't even give them away here lol, loads of pet rabbits free to good home here.

And I was working 31 days ago with no intention of quitting my job, a lot changes in a month.
Of course the fridge & freezer break down at the perfect moment, along with the oven!

Well I think the plan was to eat them, but with a sudden lack of freezer space that becomes a problem.
