Just curious how your moms and the nuggets are doing, it being about the two-week "development" mark.

Have 4 2-month old babies bouncing around, and hopefully 4 litters in the next few weeks coming up! One is for sure pregnant, her sister we think is, and the other two are our "fun buns" that have colours to attract the pet crowd at the auction that are only 2 weeks along I think. Hopefully we get some good litters with lots of survivors!

Currently have 40 kits on the ground, one litter ready for butcher this week, one in two to three weeks and one litter of nine at four weeks and two new litters at just a week old... got some orders for the pelts.. best of luck and keep us posted.

Sorry for the late reply been quite busy. We have 3 does and each one has now had a litter of 6-7 kits. first litter is soon to be put down but they are small for 12wks. Are male is small and it seems they took on all his traits, will have to look for a bigger male next year.

Glad it turned out your does are okay, and a fix on the way for the male.
Mind if I ask if you formulated a natural feed or went with pellets?
