We have two adult breeding Giant Chinchillas here at Cacia Farms. I love my girls Dixie and Annabelle they are both wonderful rabbits. Annabelle tends to be a bit more sensible than Dixie she is quiet and doesn’t mind being handled or me handling her babies. Dixie on the other hand is much more emotional about life in general. Dixie hates being picked up and handled and does not appreciate me touching or going near her babies. The one great quality both my girls have is that they are excellent mothers. They both build super nests (even if it is two weeks before their due date is two weeks away) and they hardly ever loose any when birthing. Dixie is die on the 17 of this month and I caught her trying to build a nest in her letterbox. I cleaned her very messy enclosure and gave her a nest box and hay which made for a very happy rabbit. She immediately rearranged the aspen shaving in the nest box. She then proceeded to jump out and start piling in hay. My girls both build early nest but they do wait to pull fur until about 24 to 12 hours prior to kindling.

So cute! I’m in the process of brainstorming how to build rabbit cages from some of the spare wire scattered around my homesteading. Your pictures are encouraging me get this process moving.
I’m so glad feel free to ask questions if you have any!!
