  1. Rabbits
    Hey guys, I've been breeding for a about a year now and have had two successful litters before inexplicably hitting a wall. I have two does, one purchased from a very well known Breeder along with a paired buck from the same Breeder. Aside from them I have two other bucks. Doe 1 has been...
  2. Poultry
    I am looking for meat chickens that breed true so no crosses. I don’t care if they grow slower or have not so good feed efficiency, but I do want then to forage for at least some food. The main thing I want is a big meaty carcass. One thing I love about the Cornish Cross is the large amount of...
  3. Pigs
    We plan on letting our girl have piglets and she lives with her male friend. She's had 4 cycles now. Her last cycle was January 14th. We clearly saw him mount her for several days. So now, only 2 weeks later, she has visible nipples now and their getting longer. and she is pretty swollen. He's...
  4. Homesteading Questions
    After much research we have decided that the Belfair would be ideal for our small 11 acre homestead. The problem is I'm finding it damn near impossible to find any for sale, much less for sale near me. (South Georgia) Do y'all know of any for sale or why they are so hard to find? They seem...
  5. Rabbits
    Hi all. I have bought my first meat rabbits. NZ whites. 2 bucks and 2 does. I want to have the first litter kindle at a weekend when I am home (not working) so I can keep an eye on things. The days are really short just now so when I get home from work in the evenings it's already dark...
  6. Pigs
    Hi everyone! I have a breeding pair of American guinnea hogs. They are one year and this is my first time doing pigs. I’m pretty sure ruby is pregnant- she showed signs of heat a couple times , and then the last time the heat signs never subsided. The problem is, or maybe it’s not a problem...
  7. Rabbits
    Hi. My family is new to breeding rabbits. We have 5 does. I bred all five does and they all had 3 fall offs but none of them have had any kits! No signs nothing! None are nesting or pulling hair. All they do is poop and pee in the boxes. 3 females are about a year old and the other 2 are about...

  9. Goats
    I want to get some Nigerians for milk but there aren't any buck owners in my area that offer stud service. Would it be wildly illogical to just buy a buck to service the does and then try to resell it? Or have any of yall done this? I feel like I don't have any other options at this point. So...
  10. Working and Companion Animals
    I'm a tiny hobby companion breeder of a purebred working gundog (but today is mostly just a companion breed). Being a [former] purebred elitist I can tell you that getting a closed stud book breed club to sanction an outcross to improve a breed and widen a gene pool is next to impossible unless...
