Happy Adoption Day!

Two years ago today, we adopted the bunnies! They have certainly made our lives richer, and a bit messier, but it's been worth it!

A year?

I just noticed that I haven't updated this blog in over a year. Sorry about that! There's not really a lot to report. Carney, Chester and Niko are all doing well. I have a few ideas to change some things in their pen, but we'll see. That will depend on our budget for side projects this summer.

Bunny Garden?

Not much to report... The bunnies are doing just fine and today they are enjoying watching the snow fall.

My favorite grocery store was just bought out by my most hated grocery store. However, now they have Earthbound Farm 5 oz containers for $0.99 on the day they expire... I love getting $0.99 quality lettuce for the bunnies. Of course, I carefully check the containers before I buy them and before they are fed. Normally they are still good for 2-3 days after the expiration date. 3 bunnies can eat a whole container in a matter of minutes, so every penny counts for their produce bill.

I'm trying to figure out if it'd be worth it to plant lettuces and other greens for them this spring. I'm going to expand the chicken pen and do grazing pens for them, but I bet I could do the bunny ones in containers? Maybe... Hmm... still time to decide. I'm sure they would love fresh as could be lettuce, basil, mint, and much more. I know they love bell peppers, so they can get some of those too.

Have you done a garden for the bunnies?

We're Still Here

Sorry for the lack of updates lately, rest assured we are still here!

Carney is still peeing and pooping all over everything.
Chester is still emptying the litter box almost daily.
Niko is still a hunkering bunny who just wants to be pet.

A few months ago, I switched the litter box to a huge one, the cement mixing tub. Yeah, Chester still manages to kick out litter. He just digs and digs in it. I might try a Rubbermaid type storage bin with a hole cut in the side and a vented lid... Of course, he'd probably just get better aim!

Monday, October 8, 2012!

My aunt-in-law recently gave me a cute glass hen sitting on a nest candy dish. She gave it to me in a box labeled "" with pics of dogs, cats and other pets on it. I had never heard of them, so checked it out. I'm glad I did!

Three bunnies eat a lot of food. I feed Oxbow timothy pellets, which are not exactly cheap. Petsmart has them for $14 for a 5 lb bag... has them for $17 for a 10 lb bag, free 2 day shipping on orders over $49! You can save 10% off on your first order and can earn points for free things! They have a decent selection for rabbits and other small and furry animals. I haven't look at their dog supplies too closely, but will for my next order.

Here is our order:

2 bags of Oxbow pellets, Oxbow oat hay, two willow balls and a grass mat. And the box will be a bunny toy too!

Somebunny (Chester) has been bad...

Four days in a row, I've found this:

Chester isn't admitting to anything.

So we are switching to a different litter box.

A much larger litter box.

Chester needs some consoling...

New litter box is a go!
