With 4 of Twilights litter having gone on to a new home, the hutch is feeling big again having felt comfortably full just recently. Twilight predictably doesn't mind. She likes company, and doesn't seem to mind her grown daughter being with her. She does however object every time to babies eating her food. She still uses the shelf as a get away point despite the fact that her kits can come up there with ease now. Old habits die hard I guess. It's the transition time of the season.
Back to everything else though, There are things to do though of course, as is always true around the homestead.
As the season ends I'm taking a moment to appreciate our insect visitors. While the Lady of the House doesn't appreciate them very much due to their tendency of stinging them, the wasps do their job around the property and keep down a lot of the pest insects. They'll be back next year, and this time I'm going to be trying out a new method for reducing their presence in the rabbit hutches where I must admit I don't want them. I am going to be trying a method I found online and has been recommended by some friends. I'm going to early early spring going to be mixing a water, dish soap mix and spraying it on the inside of the hutch roofs. That should reduce their ability to make their nests in there.
