A surprise litter…

About 3 weeks ago Chloe had 4 adorable kits! Right now they are at the peak of baby cuteness.

This was an accidental litter of Chloe, (Black Tort) X Andre (Chocolate Tort). (Rabbits are very sneaky!) I think there are 2 males and 2 females, 3 Black Torts and possibly one Blue Tort.

I am excited to see how the possible Blue Tort develops… I’m tempted to keep her. She is the runt of the litter and is very highly shaded. She is the one farthest to the left in the picture above – you can see how she is shaded compared to her littermate.

This litter will be ready to go to new homes by October 25, but you can reserve one until they are old enough to leave their mother! Contact me, and we can work something out. The babies will be $25 each or $45 for two, with partial pedigree.
Thank you!

The babies are 2.5 weeks old, and at the peak of cuteness. Enjoy!

This litter’s colors are 3 black and 2 agouti. I will be keeping one of the black ones if it is a doe, but the rest I will be selling, so feel free to leave a comment and reserve a bunny for you!

Spring is in the air…

..With baby bunnies again! This litter of 5 is from Chloe (Black Tortoiseshell) x Basil (Chestnut Agouti). I am hoping for some new colors in this litter. (Last litter all the babies were Black Torts, same as their mom Chloe.) I’m not sure what color these guys are yet. I think 3 are all black and 2 are black with pink tummies and ears. They are only a few days old, so by the end of the week they should be old enough for me to take them out of the nest box and get a good look.

This litter was interesting because 3 were born on Friday afternoon, and 1 was born on Saturday morning, and another Saturday afternoon. All were healthy though, and Chloe seems to be fine. She was early- she wasn’t due until Sunday!

Here is Chloe- she looks pretty ragged because of all the fur she pulled for the nest.

BABIES!

This morning Chloe started pulling fur, and when I went back out to feed the bunnies 2 hours later, lo and behold, she had kindled!

I have literally been waiting for this litter (my first) for over a year, so I’m super excited. This is the 3rd breeding, the first two failed, which was disappointing.

When I went out to check on her there was a stillborn kit on top of the nest 😦 I thought that was all, but I has still happy that she had kindled. When I went back after taking care of the kit, I moved the fur around and I saw 2 live, healthy babies in the way back of the nest! After making myself wait for about 20 minutes I went back and took the nestbox out of the cage to take a good look. One more healthy baby was in the corner.

3 healthy babies!!!!!!
Yay!

We’ve got NESTING!

This morning Chloe started really nesting. I installed the nest box a few days ago, but this morning she was on a mission to nest!

She had been eating the straw in the nestbox, so I put a few handfuls of straw on the floor for her to eat instead of the nest. Immediately she started picking up the straw in her mouth to make a bundle and arranging it in the box. Right after that she started pulling fur from her shoulders to put in the box.

It’s really interesting that her God-given instincts are so strong that even though this is her first litter, she knows exactly what to do and when and where to do it!

I took a quick clip of her pulling the fur, because she looks cute! She almost looks like she’s dancing.
Note: that annoying noise in the video is just the metal cage creaking.

She is due tomorrow, so tomorrow morning hopefully I will find some babies!  I am really excited!!!
