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!
