Ping Pong is a Siamese variety of the Satin breed of rabbit. I have a breeding trio (a buck and two does). I raise them to show, and to sell.
There are many people who do not like to raise rabbits in the desert. The heat can be hard on them. A buck will become temporarily sterile at temps of 90 and above. I breed my rabbits for heat tolerance; which means that I choose babies from the late spring litters for my breeders. Those litters are raised outside as the temps start to rise. I watch the litters carefully. The ones who handle the heat the best, are the ones that I keep to breed the following year.
Once the summer temps are above 90 degrees, the rabbits come to live in the house during the day time. I have a dog crate for each rabbit. The dog crates are lined up in the dark, cool, tiled hallway. They sleep the day away in their large crate, and then go outside at night to play.
This routine keeps the bucks from going sterile. I can breed the rabbits, and still be able to take the young ones to the shows.
Ping Pong had a litter of 3 fat little babies this morning. Notice that she did not line her nest with fur. It was warm enough outside when she had them. Bunnies like their nest to be 90-100 degrees. No problem there!
Once I bring the nest box into the house. she will be the judge on just how much fur to pull to cover them up. But I will leave that up to her. After all; mother knows best:)
