Oh that's sad! I've found with rabbits that everything either goes really well OR everything just goes to hell and fast.
They are so susceptible to parasites and it can be hard to diagnose and treat in a timely manner because they are prey animals and really good at hiding things.

And our new cows should be arriving on Sunday! We have a bit more work to do in the barn tonight get ready for them. They are a smaller breed, both young and I like to quarantine new animals. So we need to build a pen for that. We hadn't worked in the section of barn we're in now yet, so it was full of junk and Ickiness. We should have it all cleaned out and the new pen built soon.

Aw, those bunnies are so adorable! I don't post much here because we have like 20 chickens and 2 ducks. Oh, and a cockatiel.

I love looking at chicken pics
What breeds do you have?
I love ducks, in theory, but I hate the mess they make.

Yeah, birds are the same way and we've had several sick ones that didn't make it for that reason (including two that were sold to us sick). I've only been able to bring one back from an illness and that was one of our tame ones. The wild ones don't get handled so you literally can't tell they're dying until they're a few hours off.

I just ordered some black cooper marans. They won't come until May because I had turkeys in my order too. Turkeys only ship May and June. Anyway, I want really pretty eggs!

There is nothing to match the anticipation of a baby watch. I swear I get just as excited when the cows are going to freshen as I did when I was pregnant. We have two cows currently bred. And that's it. A dozen chickens roam the yard for the winter and when we put the garden in, they go back to the coop. We have found that letting them free range starting in the fall, it cuts back on the yearly spider invasion and they help keep some weeds down as well. The eggs don't keep up as well, but I like the trade off. I'd rather not burn the house down from spiders.

I love baby watch! My other cows are in with a bull right now, so I will have fall babies too!

We finished the inside of the barn for the new cows. Two are coming Sunday and one is coming Monday. We have to go to NY for that one. My aunt is babysitting, so DH and I get to go by ourselves! I'm excited for new cows and for that!
The same people we are bartering with for the goats have decided to downsize their sheep. They are going to give us some after they decide what they are keeping. I am so excited! I miss my sheep! We need to get some space set up for them first. I don't want to put them in with my goats, at least not right away.

We have 18 chickens (17 hens and a rooster). Most are now laying. And they are fertile. Now to get an incubator so I can hatch some. Other than that just the dog and a chukar partridge that has made itself at home outside the coop. But I love hearing about your farm!

Miss Miriam
She came to us "pasture exposed" to a bull, but not confirmed bred. I'd be surprised if she isn't. She is due mid June-beginning of August.

Bowie. Bowie is just about 10 months old. She has a sweet personality, but people make her nervous still. Bowie's registered name is Babee, but I think that's a terrible name and I wasn't going to call her that.

Nessie
Nessie is about 18 months. She is definitely a boss cow and wants to be in charge. Other than that, she is the tamest of the three. She loves to have her chin scratched and behind her ears rubbed. We will probably breed her in the fall so she calves when she is around 3.
