I would like to thank my husband Scott Ouellette  for deciding 6 years ago to make rabbit stew in a special pot  that his his brother Mike Ouellette gave us for our wedding. That started a thing that I would have never belived possibe.  Thank you to Scotts father. Who when I said why buy rabbit meat, why not just raise your own rabbts, got us a our first four rabbits. That began a journey that has grown way beyond what it started as. Thank you to my father, when I said I need some pedigreed rabbits. Brought me to the National  New Zealand Show and helped me get my first show rabbits. Rabbits that I still have today and that will retire here at the farm. Thank you to all the breeders that have helped me. Jim Bounakes, Paul Grunditch, Robert Crawford, Mike Dennesiuo, and Allen Bush because of your dedication I have the best rabbits and continue to evolve.

We have just added chickens and Boer goats to our new farm. The goats are settling in well. Watered them today with fresh new water and gave them grain. Loving their mellow personalities. Today was such a cold day everyone was cold. Rabbits were hunkered down. Chickens are moving around but Mello. Lots of new things going on at Silver Ridge Rabbitry.

The doe in the below photo kindled and had 11, WOW! I am glad I checked them, 2 were down at the end of the nest, not in the fur, I counted and put them all together, I will post photo's tomorrow.

Nestboxes for 3 Does

Posted by Silver Ridge Rabbitry on June 6, 2010 at 4:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Today was the day to give 3 does nestboxes, but I saw them carrying hay in their mouth, so I gave them their boxes early. All three built, but they get in it a little to eat, and it mats the hay down, so I gave them more today.  I will keep you posted on kindling times when it happens.  I have also posted some photos of a mother and young stock.

 

 


 

New Set-Up!!!!

Posted by Silver Ridge Rabbitry on April 13, 2010 at 5:55 PM Comments comments (1)

Silver Ridge Rabbitry is pleased to announce that we have changed our set-up. Previously we were raising out of our garage. That was not an ideal situation, now we are cooking, we have stacking cages from our manufacturer, in a milk house adapted from my father's cow barn, generations of farmers, now in my family. My new set-up is stacking cages with trays. It is so organized and neat, and I hope to keep it that way. I can not say enough about setting it (the rabbitry) up once and doing it right the first time. I just sold off my used cages, that didn't fit into the rabbitry, now I have new and wonderful challenges with my rabbitry. I can not stress how much you want to think about your set-up (cages feeders watering systems, etc.) As much as you want to find the best stock to begin with. If you begin with great stock and a great set-up you can deal with minimal or plenty of space, a barn with poop falling, or stacking trays in basement or a garage or shed. Rabbits are a commitment, so start with the best stock and supplies. Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in seeing our set-up.  802-371-9387

Genetically-modified Corn

Posted by Silver Ridge Rabbitry on February 12, 2010 at 6:13 PM Comments comments (1)

The shelves of our grocery stores are filled with genetically-modified (GM) vegetables. The cows/meat in your Big Mac are fed genetically-modified corn and tons of antibiotics, and they wonder why antibiotics don't work on H1N1. Tell the FDA to take GM corn off the market and put safety over profits http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/755645429?z00m=19825385
