The Bad Egg


And We’re Back–with Rabbits!

For our next backyard experiment we are trying out meat rabbits. We want to get chickens again, but we are currently renting. Our landlord is okay with a dog and a cat, but not with chickens–probably not with rabbits either, but rabbits are silent animals. Chickens? Not so much.

We’ve started off with a breeding pair: Sheldon and Catalina. Sheldon is a pure-bred Californian who is a bit of a dolt. Catalina is a beautiful, inquisitive meat mutt: 1/2 Californian, 1/4 Satin and 1/4 Rex. We picked them up at about 3 months old and will wait to breed Catalina until she’s about 6 or 7 months old.
