Baby Rabbits

July 25, 2011

About 3 weeks ago, I noticed this strange looking pink thing on the ground next to the rabbit pen. Gavriel, my daughter, was up early that morning with me and had let Buttermilk out of her box. But what she didn’t realize, and what I was realizing as I looked at this object, was that Buttermilk was in the middle of giving birth.

We found all the pups (6 total), and placed them back into the nesting box. Three pups did not make it, but three are now looking like rabbits. It is very exciting watching my daughters raise, breed, and care for their rabbits. We are up to 3 bucks, 2 does, and 3 babies. I am told the other doe is now expecting as well.
