Now that the weather is cooling off it's time for rabbit babies again

Thanks! The roof does latch. I don't know if I have weasels but I've been thinking about trying to add a flap that can also latch for over the nest box.

I built a 4'x 4' x 2'H coop from Cedar 2x4s, galvanized steel roofing panels & wire mesh. In theory this is large enough for 16 birds with 1 sqft each. I have 4 so it's plenty for me.

I collected some wild strawberry leaves for me tea. I would never have thought to try it.

I processed a rabbit and fed to offal to my chickens. Since there is only one rabbit and four chickens I gave it all to them whole. This type of food is perfect for omnivorous chickens. (Side note, I saw a carton of eggs the other day that said 100% vegan diet. Animal abuse!) Any offal they don't eat (who are we kidding, they devoured it) will draw flies that they will love to snack on.

This recipe for stew is an open-the-fridge-and-see-what-goes-with-rabbit kind of thing.

One rabbit
Half a large onion
One bell  pepper
Several carrots
Garlic to taste
That one spicy pepper you have around
Salt & pepper
Water

Toss in the crockpot on high for a few hours until you're hungry.
Here is my application for BB20. If there are grains still available, I would be most interested.

I made a basket from grass because I wanted to know if I could. Apparently I can but I don't think I recommend it. If it holds up it's going to be an egg basket when the eggs start coming in. A couple pictures have a tape measure in them to be sure it's over the minimum. I actually made three styles of basket today and I think I have the pictures if they ever turn into other badge bits.

Agreed, you likely need a local attorney. This may fall under the concept of adverse possession. The other parties may be able to claim ownership, depending on how long it's been.
