Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a good time over the holidays! There has been lots going on here at the homestead. We are currently in the process of reducing our herd. We want to be able to focus on the orange variety for the netherland dwarfs. There will still be a few chestnuts, brokens and blacks around to help improve the type and quality of the orange program.  The American breed will still be here as well. Feel free  to follow along as we get pictures up of some new fuzzy faces that are populating our rabbitry! :)
 
 
We weren't expecting it but one of our black does we bred to a broken black gave us a black tortoiseshell! We bred Cruella and Charles. We also got a broken tort out of Chloe and Charles. It's so fun having different varieties show up!

Finally getting some pics of Bella's litter up! They have fur now so I can see that two of them will be shaded of some sort. One will be a blue blanket broken, another will be a solid blue. The fith is some broken variety...I can't tell if it's blue or chinchilla because the spots are soooo little and light! Here are some pics!

One of our netherland dwarf chinchilla does had a litter Sunday June 5th. She surprised me and had 5 babies! Three look white right now but will probably be shadeds. The other two look like they might be blue? She gives us litters with lots of variety so it will be interesting to see what they turn out to be. I'll try to post pics later today :D

We have quite a few does that should be kindling within the next month. Most of them have been bred to broken bucks so we hope to have lots of little broken fluff balls hopping around soon :)  
 
 
    One of our chinchilla netherland dwarf does had a litter of three on May 20th. She had a black, broken black and a black silver marten. We had bred her to Mazy (see him listed under our dwarf bucks).  
    We still have all 5 of the the litter our orange doe Annie had. Three orange, one fawn, and one broken chestnut kits. Here are a few pics to show how they're doing!

So McGill's Rabbitry has decided to start a bunny blog! We hope to keep people updated on what's going on around here and also talk about specific topics such as rabbit care or other how to's. We want to know what you want to know, so feel free to shoot us an email or make a comment on what bunny topics interest you. :)

*New litter update* Annie, our orange netherland dwarf doe, had a litter of 5 on May 7th. Four out of the five look like they are going to be orange!! We should FINALLY have some little orange fluff balls available in a couple months! I'll post pics when they are a bit older :)
