The other day, we noticed a couple of rabbits making nests in their underground burrows. A little surprising, seeing as there hadn’t been sufficient time from when we bred them with our male. So we opened up the burrows, and sure enough one doe had just kindled. 10 beautiful little newborn babies.
We palpated all the does, and two more will probably have babies soon, having been bred before we bought them.[flickr_set id=”72157635467401545″]
Now, when a doe kindles, we can close the door that links her with her friends and increase her feed rations. Plus we can keep a close eye on the babies, which the kids love.
