The new setup will have all of the bred does in cages with a nest box or that have a removable nest box that can be put in. It'll also give Kevin and Kaylynn more space in their own private grow-out cage. I'm afraid the K and L litters remain too small to be integrated with the J litter in the grow out pet. I'll have to either sell off the J litter or the L and K litters in the very near future.
I'm considering trying the park trick I heard another rabbit breeder uses in another state. When they get too many bunnies and they aren't selling fast enough, they bring them and a little play pet to a local park. Kids will see them and of course ask if they can have one. She said she's done it for years and she rarely has to bring any bunnies home again. I'm leery of this method as it seems to encourage impulse buying, and not responsible well-thought-out purchases. But at the same time, if I run out of space, it's sell them or eat them... and I'd hate to have to eat such beautiful rabbits.
The garage sale idea is a bust. Tony says nobody will want to go garage saling in the heat, and especially with a stinky dumpster in the yard. Besides, he doesn't want to sit at the old dirty house (with no AC and no hot water, all the food has gone bad) on his weekend off. I'd be happy to stay there for a while with my cats and my rabbits and getting rid of stuff... My perspective is that if you roll up to a yard sale that was advertised as "everything must go - everything is make an offer" and you see a giant dumpster at the edge of the yard - you're going to take it serious that everything really is make an offer and get it gone... Tony thinks the heat will make the smell unbearable and nobody will want to get out of the car. He's probably right.
Anyway, here's today's coloring page.
