    Well as some of you know I have been having troubles getting my rabbits to breed so I traded a young doe for a "proven buck" from a lady I have gotten rabbits from before...well I have posted before on the meatrabbits yahoo group about my "bashful buck" because no matter what I did he would not breed any of my does, he just sat in the corner...well yesterday I was talking to my DH and told him that this buck had to go because for a month I have not had any attempts at even breeding my does so we go out to the barn to get the rabbit and I tell him that maybe we should double check and see if its a buck or a doe so I hold while he looks ( keep in mind we are both newbies and for us its difficult to tell ) so he says he doesnt see anything so we are thinking its a doe....sooo as a last resort I tell him that I am going to put another buck in with him and see what he does...if they fight it is a buck if he trys to breed then its a doe...well lo and behold my buck jumped right on my other "buck" and did his business, my "proven buck" is actually a doe, I am certain she took because she stuck her butt right up which my other does have not done as well as she has. So I am shocked that I was getting ready to have rabbit stew with a rabbit who might turn out to be my best doe so far ( judging by the way she was so receptive)

    So we have now named our newest doe "Pat" LOL!!
