I just picked up our first rabbits! This is a pregnant doe, mixed breed, with 4 babies. She is due May 4. She isn't of the New Zealand breed that I would prefer, but she is still a good size and will get us started. I'll keep her in the hutch until she has her new babies and weans them.

Here is one of the babies from her current litter. These babies are 4 weeks old and will be weaned in another week. They will go in a pen to eat fresh grass and get lots of sunshine and exercise.

Another baby from her litter.


  1. Can't remember where I saw the link to your blog - but keep up the good work!

  2. Sounds interesting living this life. Keep up the work of simple living in the mountains of West Virginia. The Ponderosa Lodge sounds lovely
