If you use water bottles, you know about the occasional bottle that just keeps on dripping which makes it completely worthless.  Or does it?

Breeder or Promoter?

Breeder or Promoter?

The world is full of rabbit breeders, as evidenced by those attending shows, the supply that pet stores have, and the number of signs found along highways advertising “Bunnies For Sale.” Being a rabbit breeder is an easy task. All you need is a few does and a buck, and you’re in business.

The AHRA has among its members a number of breeders. What we need is for each of these breeders to move up the ladder to the rung which I call “The Promoter.” There is a vast difference between the two categories and the requirements for each.

As I said earlier, being a breeder is easy. Get yourself a buck or two and some does, and you’re in business. With a little work, you can soon be taking a good number of animals, regardless of quality, to shows. This will help you get points and become a leader in the National AHRA Sweepstakes.

Biosecurity

Biosecurity

Note:  This is a re-print from the Purina Rabbit Newsletter for July 2012.  When the Link is available on line, I will include it.

Pathogens and parasites lurk everywhere, just waiting for the opportunity to infect your animals! To keep your rabbitry healthy and hopping, utilize a proper biosecurity program to keep out pathogens the animals have not yet been exposed to and to minimize the impact of endemic pathogens.

“Shower in, shower out.”

True biosecurity involves people “showering in and showering out”. However, most rabbitries are not set up with such facilities. You can go a long way toward minimizing human transmission (more…)

Turning Others “ON” to Rabbits

Turning Others “ON” to Rabbits

A recent post on one of my rabbit email lists mentioned that, unlike horse and dog shows, entries for youth members were up in the rabbit shows they were attending.  Those of us who have had the rabbit habit for a while know it’s a […]

Feeders & Water Bottles

We’re changing the barn around as we added on to my little one to make room for my daughter’s rabbits.  I originally had 6 holes with room for 6 more which would have been OK for me for quite a while, but certainly not enough […]
