Kindle is a term used to identify that a doe has given birth. Baby rabbits are called kits. Kits nurse from the doe (dam) to grow and develop into bunnies.
Bunnies are weaned at approximately 42 days. We evaluate and monitor the bunnies during weaning and establish a litter price. We determine a litter price by evaluating the best rabbit and the rabbit with the most faults in the same litter. The litter is then given a price based on the average overall quality and each rabbit is priced the same in that litter. Our litters are open to selection at six weeks old. During evaluation we can determine the sex by 6 weeks time. Bunnies must be 8 weeks old eating and drinking independently before they can leave our rabbitry. Bunnies go through a phase of soft stool as they transition from nursing to eating hay, pellets and drinking water. 8 weeks is a good amount of time for them to obtain independence as a junior rabbit. A junior rabbit is a rabbit under the age of 6 months. Rabbits 6-8 months old are called intermediate. Rabbits older than 6 months are referred to as a senior rabbit.
Looking through our rabbits you will notice identification combining numbers and a letter. In the example “59C2” the first number 5 identifies the month born. The number 9 indicates the year born. The letter C identifies the Dam of the rabbit C= MB Cherry Rum. Generally if we know the dam its easy for us to recall who the Sire is. The number 2 is a litter number for each rabbit (1,2,3 and so on). This set of numbers and letter is called the EAR number and is tattooed into the left ear only of each rabbit. The right ear is reserved for a additional Pedigree number given by the show judge when earned through competition at ARBA shows (American Rabbit Breeders Association).
