WildChild just kindled her second litter. Nine kits, one was out of the nest and cold but moving a bit and its little tummy was full. So I warmed it up until it was moving well and put it back into the middle of the nest.

Psychorabbit should kindle tomorrow.

Psychorabbit kindled today. Ten healthy little kits!

Here is a picture of Olive's two remaining kits, at one month old. That's WildChild in the background (she's in the cage behind them).

Question. What makes you decide to keep one for breading instead of killing for meat/pelts?

First off, I get the mindset that every one of the babies is being bred for rendering. You don't name them, and the "cute" wears off at about 3 months.

When you decide to keep one female to be a breeder, it's a decision based on a few factors for me. In WildChild's case, she was part of a group I released at the end of the season because we just didn't need more meat. She came back and was easy to catch. So her temperment was a plus.

She was also one of the larger does of her group. A bigger doe should have a larger litter, or bigger kits in the litter since in theory, there's more room in there

Next, her mother is my best producer, so I hoped she would follow suit. This is just her second litter, and so far she's producing a large litter. The next breeding will determine if we keep her or cull her from the breeding program.

She is also an interesting colour, with multicoloured bits of orange and grey. I want to see if she passes that on since people liked those pelts.

If I was breeding pure bred rabbits for show, the criteria would be far more strict, but these are meat and fur; therefore, big rabbits with soft, luxurious fur of interesting colours.
