Crossed between a red New Zealand buck and a red / white broken New Zealand doe. Looks like it’s going to be 7 reds and 3 broken in this bunch.

3 more does with the same cross due next week. Looks like it’s going to be a plentiful season for the meat rabbits.

This one was a little weird, she had her babies before she pulled hair. I put them in the chick brooder to give her time to build her nest. She’s got it going on now.

Nothing like a good ole rabbit killing day. My problem is I’ll have about 20 ready to kill during the same week as 40 meat chickens.

I’ll have a little help this first round. Teenage boys from church want to have a rabbit fry soon and they’ve offered to help.

Meat just keeps on arriving!! New Zealand meat rabbits. Brooder is slam full of Cornish rock meat chicks and Rhode Island Red chicks. RIR’s always hit the market to pay the feed bill. Come on May 15th, it all ends and running jugs for catfish begins. Fall it’ll be time to kill the hogs, lambs and calf. Going to put that walk in cooler and new processing room to work!!!
