Well, I got my tuition refund, so it is about time to buy some much needed supplies for the rabbitry. I have a bunch of rabbits coming due, and needed more nestboxes. Online is a much better deal, so, while ordering them, I ordered a couple more things to help out.
I got 12 plastic resting pads. These are nice to make sure that rabbits are not hanging out on wire cages all day. They are easy to clean, and will make for happier rabbits.
I also need a way to mark my rabbits. So I got the deluxe rabbit tattooing kit.
I have never tattooed a rabbit before, so I need to figure out a tattooing system to mark my rabbits. I only have the numbers 1-10 right now. May get the alphabet set too…
That is all for me for today.
I must admit, tattooing animals is something I know nothing about. Now, as we make plans for the future farm, I’m thinking it’s something we should look into…
I have 8 rabbits that all look identical. Ear tags don’t work for rabbits, and cage tags blow off. i don’t want to do it, but I think it is our only reliable option
I can see the problem there. I wonder how they’ll take it? As someone with tattoos personally, I know it can be uncomfortable to get one. Is it quick to do?
There is a device that you put in the tattoo markings (number or id), and then clamp down on the ears with the number pins. It takes only 30 sec or so. Then put on ink, and leave it dry
Well, that sounds faster and easier than my tattoos!
