I am 49 years old and have just got my first rabbit.  I found an advert for a gorgeous sealpoint smokie coloured dwarf lop on Preloved.  Free to a good home it said and was only 10 mins away from us by car so hubby kindly took me to see it and we just clicked. [...]

I have made up my mind which rabbit to buy. After searching many sites and adverts i have decided to go for blue and white butterfly mini lops from a friend of  Jans It is important that i buy the best breeding stock i can. They are due to leave on 7th so providing she [...]

I have been watching the passing overhead of the ISS.  Its going to be around until 10th September so plenty of time to catch it.  Timetable for it passing over is here Its only visible for a few minutes every night as it has no light of its own so is only viewable when in [...]

Before you shout that i am a huge hypocrite i have to say that i still dont want to lose books in their original form and hope that there will always be a paper version of any publication, but….  I cant help but really love the look of Amazon’s new Kindle, both the basic and [...]

It finally hatched in the early hours we think as it was laying underneath mum when i went to look just after 6 this morning.  I had been on hot coals all evening. We removed it for a few hours and put it in the old homemade inci as it was very weak but within [...]

We opened the other 2 eggs tonight as they are a day over hatch day, 1 had stopped growing about a week ago the other had come to nothing.  The third however was pipping merrily away and had begun breaking its way through the shell. We have given it a hand by breaking through the [...]

Haven’t heard any pipping yet and have a feeling that nothing is going to hatch after all.  Maybe having 3 broody hens is just too much, i should have moved Buffy on her own with the eggs and not let the others get near.  They keep laying eggs in there despite having 2 other nest [...]

I am a huge gadget fan and there isnt a time when i’m not pining for something electronic  such as camera or game console but the one gadget i will never buy is an eBook reader.  They go against everything i hold dear in books.  There is nothing like holding a brand new paperback in [...]

Do you want the good news or the bad news? We’ll start with the bad then things can only get better.  Poor Angel has a fungal infection in her ears which is creeping towards her eyes, i have been informed by my forum friends that i need to get some cream for [...]

My boar is still as silent as the grave, haven’t heard him make a squeak whilst the girls have made the odd chatting sound again.  We moved them today to their new home in the old chicken run where they are closer to the ground as it was worrying me when [...]

They are all still skittish and hide all the time bit i did see the girls come out for a bit when i blocked off their bedroom and the darkest one who seems to be the bravest had a nugget whilst i was there and a little drink, also they made some [...]

The pigs are settling in quietly, too quietly.  I haven’t seen them since we put them in their new cages but i know that this is normal as they have so many new smells and sights to take in. The 3 girls are mainly dark brown or black in colour (i cant decide which its very [...]

We went over to Romford today to see a guinea pig breeder and came home with 4 of them.  3 girls and 1 boy.  They are very shy and skittish at the moment so will leave then to settle in for a day or so. Pictures as soon as they are happier in their new [...]
