I guess she had a "headache" hahahah!Damn.....Sorry for your loss.
Don't you just hate it when that happens.
lol. Must have been a migraine. It sucks, but I do have 2 more bucks, just have to wait until they get larger.
My boyfriend and I bred our does this weekend....The first was done within 2 minutes.The second, well, she made the buck chase her for about 20 minutes before submitting.I told my boyfriend that if the second doe had further issues with kindling or re-breeding, she was going into the soup pot.If I were you, Phelan, I would soup pot her, and find another doe that will sumbit, instead of kill, your bucks. If she did it once, I'm willing to bet she'll do it again.
We have thought about that. She did fine with the older buck, so it was a surprise.
When she said NO...she meant it!Guess she just wasn't in the mood!
Sorry to hear about your buck. We're thinking about getting meat rabbits soon, so I'm trying to read up on all the blogs about "real" rabbit keeping.
Yup, we have to watch out for the same thing. we have been lucky so far but have come close to loosing one. If the Dom Does weren't that good as mommas then we would get rid of them. I hate to say it but we have a table that will hold the mean does so they can be bred. Yup, it's sick I know and you will never see me post about it either.
you'll have to email me about it MDR. I don't want to eat her as she has some nice large babies.
I always have had my suspicions about such an event. That's why I never dated fat chicks. Why take the chance.the mohave rat
first let me catch my breath from laughing. Oh Rat, you know them there are fightin' words. Now I get free reign to talk smack on old men :D
Send me your email at moderndayredneck.gmail.com and will tell you about my rabbit rape table.
lol, geeze you guys are in an ornery mood today.
email sent by the bye
There are just toooo many jokes to write about that. Lol
I had a pretty large rabbitry, 4 bucks, 10 does, 30 cages altogether. They were producing on a 2 month schedule pretty reliably and I had different breeds and different sized breeds. I would have preferred to have started with just one breed, but I had to make due with what stock was locally available and within my budget. I never had a death from a doe taking out a buck. Most of my rabbits were New Zealand White but one of my best bucks was a harlequin who was half the size of the does. But he was also one of the meanest bucks I've ever seen, he would bite the does ears and stomp them and hump their face if they backed into a corner. So I'm not sure if she's ready for the stockpot yet. One thing I definitely found was that, much like human life, many does AND bucks were a bit confused about what was going on their first time. So you might give her a second and third shot. But I would not leave her alone with the buck again. They're not shy, it's not like they won't make whoopee if you stand there like some sort of pervert or experienced farmer. And when you're starting out any animal breeding program, it's very hard to bear losing your bucks.
I just read this to my wife. She said, "It sounds like the doe was bred."Rule of thumb... ALWAYS watch the pair for the first minute or two. If the doe is bred, she'll be ornery. And for the newbies out there. Never, never, never-ever bring the buck to the doe. Nuff said. Sorry about your buck.Rich & Carolwww.HouseOfHares.com
The doe hasn't been with a buck since August.
