Our First Babies Graduate.....

Our first litter of rabbits weened and graduated to a pasture Hare Pen today. All of our breeding stock were purchased as babies and raised up to breeding age so today's first litter weened is a major mile stone for our little rabbitry. We have two more litters 4 weeks behind these and more on the way. We also have more purchased breeding stock and broilers growing out in hare pens. We started with a variety of weened stock from various sources and grew them out so we could be picky about breeding stock and cull the rest as broilers.


  1. Great looking hare pen. More slats than we use but you'll probably have fewer

  2. This is the first time I've heard about hare pens. Great idea though. Might have to use these in the future.

  3. Hare pens are great fro growout and a more natural feeding environment. We have not birthed in them but many folks do. It is on the list of things to try.
