Io was culled today, just a week shy of her first birthday. This is the first time I’ve had an empty cage since I can remember… Tomorrow it will have rabbits in it.
Not sure why she couldn’t conceive, but her brother was infertile too. She looked pretty normal inside, maybe a bit fatty around the organs but I never overfed her. Who knows. She was a very skittish rabbit anyway so I don’t mind replacing her with a new doe, especially since I have such a beautiful and friendly batch of Standard Rex kits right now.
One thing I love about rabbits is that even when things go wrong, you have at the very least a nice rabbit dinner.
