10-16-20 HUGE news about Camilla, and yes, I've been keeping it a secret for a month! :)
10-15-20 Hop on over to the BABIES PAGE for brand new baby pics!! They're 6 weeks already! ♥ I'm still holding off on listing any for sale, as I'm contemplating which I might keep. My best guess is I might list a few at the end of the month when the babies are 8 weeks old and keep one or two to possibly join my herd.
*Update on Nibbles (the Columbus bunny): Nibbles is now on a second antibiotic as she still had occasional sneezing and bacteria show on her culture (it's not pasteurella/snuffles though, which is good news). My hubby kindly injects her meds each morning, which is no fun. Once her treatment is finished, she will need tested again (another $220) to see if her culture is clean. I can't express how stressful this has been (or how many more gray hairs it's given me): determining her ailment, treating her, keeping her quarantined and protecting the other buns, and investing nearly $1,000 on a brand new rabbit and not knowing if she'll ever get to join my barn. 2020 is relentlessly testing my commitment to this crazy bunny adventure, but I will continue to pour my efforts and all YouTube profits into providing the best care possible for my lop eared friends.
10-7-20 The babies will be five weeks tomorrow, it's hard to believe! They spend their days busily hopping around the bunny barn, munching on hay, and leaving trails of tiny poo balls everywhere. At dinner, they all hop into their condo with Cora and spend the night together so they don't miss a meal from mama. Amazingly, there has literally only been one urine accident in their enclosure; they've done an excellent job using the litter box! They all have learned how to beg for oats (see recent IG and FB posts for video) and are so very sweet. For those waiting for available bunnies, please be patient. I don't intend to list any bunnies for a while yet...likely late October at the earliest, and I'll be keeping at least one to remain here.
9-27-20 The babies' ears have lopped, and they are learning to run and hop! I just can't get enough of these cuties and spend hours with them each day; they're all so friendly! Check out the new video I just created.
I don't plan to even consider posting any of the babies for sale until late October at the earliest. I intend to keep at least one, and the remainder will be available to responsible, loving, pet homes. I will post a heads-up here before listing any babies on the sale page (first-come-first-served).
*Update on the new bunny from Columbus: Nibbles (the name has stuck, so for now, I'm leaving it) improved some on antibiotics but still has an occasional sneeze and the slightest crust around her nostrils. I took her back to the vet Friday for an official culture, and the BunnyVac vaccine company is paying for a pasteurella culture to make sure it's not that bacteria. So, after expenses, I now own a $600 rabbit that may or may not be able to join my herd. And no, the breeder never offered any compensation for selling me a recently vaccinated bunny (undisclosed) who became ill less than 24 hours after pickup nor offered to take the bunny back. :(
