Bunnies!

Hello to everyone online!  I've never blogged before, so please be gentle :)

Signs of spring are popping up everywhere on the farm these days.  This morning, we have a new litter of baby bunnies! A quick check of the nest box revealed 4 new ones, but there may be more hiding in the "hair coccoon"...I'll be checking better tonight to make sure everyone's ok, but I didn't want to upset momma too much this morning.  She's a first time mom and I always get nervous that they won't take good care of the babies.  We've had good luck with the rabbits so far though, this is the third litter this spring and all have been successful so far...

So far this year we've also had 5 Dorsett cross lambs born (3 black and 2 white!) and 3 Boer kids.  We have 1 goat and 1 lamb that ended up being bottle babies, but they seem to be growing just as well as the others.  More goats should be on the way soon, so I'll keep you posted as best as I can...

We are anxiously awating our seed orders to come in the mail.  Dan has been plowing a little and I can't wait to get started in the greenhouse!

Great news on the bunnies. We try to get "in the nest box" as soon as we can. That way we make sure the babies are getting fed. Or find that one that did die....

Then Momma and babies are used to being handled, Makes for very friendly bunnies, and actually get's momma used to you too.

Take care,
