So.. The babies are getting ever so big!

image

These were taken a few days ago.. Growing up so fast!!

image

This little lady was enjoying snuggle time with Sam and her burnt chest! Must have been warm in there 😉 The next day the were a bit bigger..

image

Daddy Binkie had some fun playing in the cardboard castle I made.. He didn’t get all the way to the bottom,  big scaredy cat just wanted to play on the top level and shelf.

image

On day 9 all bunnies opened their eyes! Read that it is usually around 10 to 12 days so they must have been eager to check out their surroundings!

image

Anyhow, today they came out for a little while and had a play.. Only one of them was half hopping.. Bless. They must have worn themselves out though as after a good 5 mins three of them made a bunny pile up and had a nap.

While one little monkey was trying to sneak a feed off mum two of the others were trying to sneak a snooze in my boot! Don’t think they realise just how big they are getting…

image

Sam always gets lots of snuggles…

Spring babies day 6 March 26, 2012

Today the babies are looking a lot more fluffy. They are alot more active and quite noisy grunting and squeaking away. All have lovely full bellies.. And possibly all have lovely homes waiting. It makes me a little sad to think that in a couple of months we are going to have to say bye, but also happy that they will be as loved as their parents.

Today was a beautiful sunny day, and the babies must have been getting a bit too warm in their fluffy nest. They made a hole in the top and sat with their heads out!

They still have their eyes shut.. Madalaine found one wandering about the nest box this morning and was very excited to have rescued it and put it back in its nest. I think she is starting to like them a bit more now they are getting fluffy.

So we just checked on the babies to make.sure they were all still alive and kicking..

And they sure are! I haven’t been feeling to well so spent most of the day curled up on the sofa; and heard the occasional squeak coming from their nest.. They sound adorable!

image

The two black ones are looking a bit more fluffy.. Very wriggly and enjoy snuggling into each other. The one on the right of the picture is the bigger and the smaller less active one is on the left. They both had big full tummies again.

image

The two black and white ones were also fluffy, and felt very soft! They are strong; wriggling about, and appeared to enjoy having their heads strokes gently.

Mum bun Tootsie was keeping an eye on us bouncing about while we were checking on her babies.. Even decided to come sit with us.

image

Will update with more info and piccies soon.. Have to go check on the seedlings we planted and then get some of my Psychology Investigaton done.
Let me know what you think, if you would like me to add more pictures etc then just let me know and i’ll see what I can do. Also I apologize for my awful spelling and punctuation at the moment as I am blogging from my mobile.. It seems to make it a but more difficult! Xx

So.. Our female bunny had 4 kits. Two black, two black and white. She had made a nest about two weeks ago and pulled out a little bit of furr.

On the first day they looked like this.. She had pulled out LOTS more furr. If you can make them out in this picture. If you can’t they looked like little wrinkly furrless sausages wriggling around in the furr and hay! Lol

image

When they were one day old we had another check at them.. Just to make sure they had all made it through the night ok.. They all had got a little more furry over night!

image

This one appears to be fine 😉 snuggling in to Sam’s hand.

image

This one was a real wriggler! They both look.very similar apart from one having two dots on its nose and the other having just one.

image

We think this little one is a girl, and is the bigger of the two black ones..

image

This one is the smallest of the four, not as active, still had a full belly though so hoping she does ok.. Fingers crossed.

Madalaine of course is VERY excited about the babies. Although she wasnt too keen on how they looked! Her words were “ohh, um, theyre not very nice are they” with a screwed up face.. I think she expected them to be just identical to the bigger buns. Bless!

image

She tells me she does love them all the same even though she doesn’t think they are very pretty. Hahaha. Perhaps she will change her mind when they are all fluffy and bouncy.

Will try to update with more info later 🙂
Leave a comment and let me know what you think. I have had lota of comments about leaving them and not touching then as their mum will reject them.. But i have also read quite a lot about them being ok to be checked as long as you have a strong bond with the mother, smell of her and she is ok with it.. What do you think? 🙂
