  • Rabbit feed and hydroponic fodder

    Having rabbits, you’ve got to worry about feeding them constantly. In Zimbabwe, rabbits are typically fed with greens similar to kale, or grains. We can also easily find commercially pelleted rabbit foods.

  • The fat sisters

    Grumpiest of all the beautiful bunnies so far are two fat sisters, Molly and Mandy. We are getting to know the personalities of our rabbits as they grow larger (and heavier).

  • Building nesting boxes

    After the fatal failure of our first kits, we are learning the rabbit breeding cycle. Mate in the hutch of the buck, palpate at 10-14 days and then place the nesting boxes in the doe’s cage at 28 days after mating.

  • Fig trees and rabbit manure

    The big dilemma is how I’ll grow fig trees in an environment where elephants pluck literally every bit of vegetation that I plant.

  • A hutch for a pregnant doe

    In expectation of her litter, we have built Misty a rabbit hutch. We’ve placed some straw in the nesting box. We are not absolutely certain when to expect the litter since the mating took place on different days and were not properly documented – but we’re ready. Misty is settled in and seems happy with her new home.

  • Bob is a shy guy

    Cleaning rabbit hutches, feeding and petting the rabbits is quickly becoming my favourite passtime.

  • Red the buck

    Red has quite the personality. I’m able to pet him and he seems to enjoy the attention.

  • A python on our balcony

    A python had made himself quite at home near the bird cages and rabbit hutches. Not your ordinary welcome home!

  • Bitter sweet kindling

    There are several rustic wire cages set up against the back wall of the loft. On this morning, one of the rabbits has dropped a litter on the wire. We had not prepared a nesting box for her!
