A rabbity argument

on October 5, 2013

Ming and I had an argument the other day about our rabbit plague. He said they were attracted to the wheat I feed the peacocks, guinnea fowl, geese, duck etc. I said, what nonsense – everyone around here is being rabbit plagued!

It was only when I went outside to feed the birds the other afternoon that I realized Ming is absolutely right!

    I know you think they are a pest but they look cute wee bunny rabbits to me!

  2. Oops! Can’t help that though.

  3. Don’t let Ming blame the feed and the peacocks, bunnies will eat anything. Trust me I have my own bunny infestation and I live in Blandford MA and I have a hunting dog who has killed at least five and yet they are still in my fenced in backyard eating my perennials. Jack is a pretty brutal killer I have to say, that doesn’t deter them. My babies love to tease me and argue with me as well. What is up with that? Where is the respect for the labor that we endured? I tell you these ungrateful babies, sometimes I think that they need a good spanking lol. They are so lucky.

    Julie, All’s well at the chow hall I see, the bunnies will continue to plague you as long as you have the feed back out. LOL LOL They are cute though. Take care, Bill

    Well they will be attracted to any easy food that you put out won’t they?? But they do look cute .. do you eat rabbit.??

  6. Ming will be pleased you acknowledged this. πŸ˜‰

    the proof is in the eye!

    My neighbor and mother-in-law complain about the bunnies eating their plants, but I watch them eat mine and just enjoy how cute they are. Of course, they haven’t completely destroyed my gardens or I might not be as welcoming. πŸ™‚

    Julie, I was just thinking… What would happen if you put the bird food up on a platform that only the birds could reach? OR, build a wire fence to peg out around the feeder, that will allow bird heads in, but keeps the fluffy rabbit heads out! πŸ™‚

  10. Aww, but they’re so cute!

  11. adinparadise says:

    Hahaha. You’ll have to buy extra feed now those rabbits have a taste for it. I wonder if they’ll grow feathers? πŸ˜•

    What a boon it is to have a son who is right. There is nothing more that a parent needs than correcting. It is good for the soul.

    Honestly – your peacocks are beautiful, but your bunnies are adorable!

  14. Vicki (from Victoria A Photography) says:

    Awww How gorgeous is that.
    I rather watch the bunnies feed and take photos (than shoot them as they’re eating the food you put out for your own animals).
    How cute they are.

    The bird seed that falls from my feeders attract rabbits, too. Fortunately, it doesn’t look to me that the plague of rabbits around here is near the problem it is there. We have coyotes that keep the rabbits in check.

  16. janechese says:

    do you have coyotes? I guess the equivalent is the dingo.On second thought, they would feed on the birds. Hmmm. Rabbits are cute but when you are over run…hmmmm.

  17. rabbit plague over here too πŸ™‚

    Don’t you hate it when teenagers are so smart and clever? (And secretly love it, too–because you’re proud of them:)
