I went to pick up my new rabbits from Valorie (aka Dunroven) today. Four good looking, healthy NZWs (3 does, 1 buck). They are very tame! Valorie's DH set them down on the grass to show them to me-I was sure they'd run off, but they stayed right there! I'm sure I'm going to have lots of questions so please bear with me! They are going to be a small colony in an old metal corn crib with a cement floor for now at least (I may build a grander rabbitry if I really enjoy them). I'm going to keep the buck in a dog crate in the colony at least until the females are old enough to breed (every body is about 3 months old now). Here's my first raising rabbits question: Do you provide salt for your rabbits? The bag of food I got says not to feed any hay with the diet and provide a salt wheel. Would a small horse brick be OK? I'm a bit confused with the no hay part-I see pet bunnies on occasion and always recommend that they be fed a good timothy hay along with the pellets to help keep the gut working properly. Is it OK to provide my rabbits with grass hay? That's all for now. I need to go check on them again, they've only been here for 1/2 an hour and they are already exploring their new digs and seem pretty calm and happy.
