Little Bunny Foo Foo
A few days ago, once again our farm family grew! We are happy to welcome Jack and Jill to our menagerie. They are fluffy and cute and hopefully Jill is pregnant and will be giving birth to a litter of 8 bunnies in a month. We have decided to give raising rabbits a go, and our great friend Cris over in Prairie Farm had these rabbits available. Thanks Cris!
We’ve taken a shine to them. Since this is a working farm, these rabbits are not destined to be pets per se. We do plan on breeding these two and using their offspring for food. Right now we are in the experimental stages. We are going to build some rabbit tractors such as the Salatin farm uses as soon as we get some time here. They have already produced a copious amount of poop in the last few days, and this poop is ready to use in the garden right away. Waht an amazing concept.
We are planning on eventually feeding our rabbits all homegrown food but right now we are giving them pellets and some of our hay. They love the hay, and we fed them some clover yesterday and they went right to work and seemed to enjoy the clover as much as we would enjoy a bag of potato chips.
