Baby Rabbits

I have a lot to mull over on having multiple litters in a single tractor.  Both does chose the same nest box (I provided 2), and the babies all merged.  The Lionhead had 5, the NZ 12, and now, 2 weeks later, we're down to 11.  The strongest were getting fed twice while the weak were not getting fed at all.

Here are the 8 NZ/Amer. Chinchilla crosses.  There's still quite a bit of difference in sizes, but they're all getting full tummies now and look alert and healthy.



 These are the Lionheads.  I think I will keep the one at 12 o'clock in the top photo.  It looks kind of like a Hotot and is the most forward of the bunch.  I really don't *need* a Lionhead and am selling the doe, but gosh that one's cute! :)
And I just couldn't resist putting this one of Lorelai up.  If there's water, she'll play in it.  Doesn't matter how cold it is, this girl LOVES water!
