Sidney has babies!

On 1.22.09 Sidney finally gave us a litter! She had EIGHT! 4 brokens and 4 solids :) We couldn't be happier!

In other news, I did a big update of the website a few days go. Mostly making the pictures smaller (I didn't realize how large they were! My bad.) and updating the litters page. We also put pictures up of our Wooly babies who are in the cute stage right now. Check it out if you get a chance.

A very welcomed surprise :)

This weekend I had Truffle out and noticed that she looked especially large. She had palpated negative when I palpated her last week and I didn't think I felt anything but sure enough I did feel some babies when I checked. I put a nestbox in there during the weekend and this morning I had seen she was pulling fur. When I got back from school and check on her and was happy to see that she had 5 babies, two of which were DOA. There are now 1 solid (blue chin/opal) and two brokens (one chesnut/one opal). I am very excited for these brokens! Also, these are my first living Ryan babies. He had a litter born in October but the doe didn't have them in the box. Just thought I'd share my excitement :)

Baby Happenings at Silent Springs.

Okay, here's a list of current babies and breedings of Silent Springs Rabbitry!

12/08 - Silver kindled to two kits by Sundance Kid. One chesnut (buck) and one chinchilla (buck). The chinchilla is sale pending to Randee and family and will be leaving once he is old enough!

12/29 - Pudge kindled to four kits by Casey. 3 Black Otter VC's (two bucks, one doe) and 1 Black Otter VM (doe). I will have my eye on the VC doe, if she is nice enough I'd like to hold her back for my BEW project.

Sidney X Sundance Kid is nesting as we speak! I am really excited, since Sidney's last litter in October froze on the wire. This time she's in the garage though and has already made a nice nest. Hopefully a litter in the next few days!

Silver X Cody has palpated positive. I am hoping for some opals/blue chins in BROKEN. I've had too many solids lately. :p

Faith X Ryan is probably not pregnant. I'll need to double check in a few days and you know how first timer's like to tense up and make it hard to palpate. ;).

Well, that's it! I hope everyone had a Happy New Year!
