    I'm interested, too.

    I just acquired a second pair because my first doe's litters all died. I think May Belle stomped them to death, but I may be doing something wrong...

    I'd also appreciate some new recipes. Bunny burrito gets old after a while!

    Do you keep your rabbits and chickens together?

    hello joshplus10 right know i keep everyone together so they will stay warm come spring time im building a rabbit shed and moving them. Ive heard first time moms will lose there kits you just have to rebreed and try agian if it happens agian consider her for the stew pot or selling or try one more time. But i would only try 3 times after that i think she has proved her self an unworthy mom only good for a pet or rabbit stew. Ive got a doe that lost her fist kits she has been rebreed so we will see if she keeps them this time around

    Also, (I haven't bred my rabbits yet, they're not old enough yet) but I plan on breeding two does at the same time. I was told if one mom isn't a good mom, you can stick her babes in with another mom to raise. I was told new moms often lose their first litter too.
