Rabbit Updates

On Saturday my Magpie Harlequin rabbit gave birth to a new litter of 7 kits. They all look healthy and well! I checked this morning and they all have full little tummy’s so mama is doing her job well. They are two days old today.

Saturday afternoon I also got a new Harlequin doe. She is a Black Japanese Harlie and she is super laid back and mellow. She was destined for the stew pot before I got her so she was not handled much. I am very happy that she is so calm. I cant wait to breed her! On Saturday morning I had three rabbits. By Saturday afternoon, I had 11! I cant wait for the kits to open their eyes so we can play with them more!
Here are pictures of our new kits and my Black Jap doe.

My 3 children and I live on 14 acres in Savannah Ga. I have worked hard at turning the property into a thriving, self sufficient homestead. It has been a learning experience and a lot of hard work but its so worth it. I don't understand how our country became so consumer driven. We have lost so much of our production way of life. It is my goal to get back to basics any way that I can. My three children used be so hooked on TV, video games, computers, iphones and ipads. And while they still like those things, they now spend just as much time outside as they do inside. I hope by learning to raise chickens and rabbits, growing gardens, raising goats and riding horses and spending more time outdoors in general, my children will learn to love and appreciate a simpler way of life. I knew nothing about homesteading when I started this journey but I have learned so much and love every minute of it.
