Right around weaning time, my bunnies tend to loose their baby coats and grow in their adult coats. During this time it is easy for them to matt up. So today I brushed all four of Ma Bell’s bunnies, removing tangles in their wool. They are not too happy about this as it tugs some, but it is necessary to prevent a matted mess. Above are Ma Bell’s red bunnies, about to be picked up by their new owner Jessie. Below are her darker bucks, still for sale.
Below is the other bit of news we have. Our brown leghorn hen has been setting on pheasant eggs and manage to hatch one out. It is hard to get a photo of him, but his head is peeping out on the right. He is unruly, he keeps escaping through the mesh of the cage (as he is quite small) and causing his surrogate mother fits. He always comes back. I do not have a cage with smaller openings that they can fit in so I hope he grows quick. This is not helped by the fact that she keeps digging up the ground, throwing dirt into piles to make it easier for him to escape and also filling up the water and grain dishes meant for them.
