Well, it finally happened. We received snow, and only snow, here at the rabbitry. That may not seem like a big deal to some but for those of us here in eastern North Carolina it is pretty remarkable when we actually get a measurable amount of snow and it is not accompanied by sleet or freezing rain.
We spent the last couple of days trying to get ready for the blizzard of 2018...lol which was only about 2 to 4 inches of snow. We have 2 barns here at the rabbitry but we noticed that one was significantly warmer than the other. This is probably due to location and design. Since we had recently sold all of our available bunnies and had more room than normal we elected to move all of our bucks into the doe barn where it is warmer. You can imagine the excitement that created when bucks who had never had any interaction were placed side by side for the very first time. It was a fun scene! The rest of our time was spent filling cracks and stuffing holes to stop any drafts we found. I have learned that feed bags serve more and more purposes everyday. I am very happy and somewhat relieved to say that the "warmer" barn never dropped below freezing which meant no frozen bottles or crocks and no hauling water from the house. I call that a win!!
