Little Rabbits

In the fall we attempted to produce a couple litters of kits (rabbits) to have some fresh meat through the winter. We weren't successful. The first litter perished due to our fault and the second litter due to the death of the mother during childbirth. (You can read that post here). A couple of months ago Jason tried once again to breed a litter, then three weeks ago we celebrated success. The mother, Una, gave birth to eight healthy little kits. The runt eventually died, but the remaining seven are doing awesome.

Once they are big enough Jason will process them and we will freeze, share, eat, and sell some. We are so excited to get some fresh rabbit meat for our freezer.
