    Ok,wasnt 100% sure, but I figured she knew what she was talking about. She breeds and shows rabbits. Mycdoe had some kits a while ago, she killed 2 and raised the other 3 perfectly fine. I didnt know she was pregnant until she started pulling fur. Heck I thought both my rabbits were does!

    My day: got up early to put dinner in the crock pot. Left for work with it unplugged. Had to throw it out. Went to pick up my kids after school. Got a ticket. Tonight I found my 17 wk old silkie boy under a tree when it was time for the coop. Went to pick him up and he didn't move. The boy can't walk or stand. I see no obvious injury but he was literally JUST FINE hours ago. I put him in a crate with food and water in the basement. I'd like to think he just got injured some how but I don't know. I have a bad feeling. :/

    julie0477 I hope your boy is okay!! Sounds like a bad day all around :(


    Needing advice. I have 4 bearded silkie eggs that my girls have layed and no broodies. I thought there were only 2 and then I found 2 more buried under the hay in the nesting box. They don't seem to be paying much attention to them. Any thoughts? Should I just wait it out longer and see if they lay a full clutch? I don't have an incubator.[​IMG] I have never experienced this before. Newbie.

    Well the lowes in my area clearanced their dog houses about 2 week a go. So nothing is left. Kind of sad since I will be needing a dog house or two come spring for the puppies and another one or two would have made nice isolation pens. It would have been great to get a bunch at a really low price.

    Now I really wish I lived closer to you Brad.
