Bunny Update

7 days after Trudy’s nest started twitching under the fur, she still has 6 babies, all looking healthy, no longer pink but now snowy white and twice the size they were as newborns. Trudy herself is still being a remarkably laid-back mum – I never see her in the nest though she always has a glance at it after she’s been out, she doesn’t mind me going in the cage to clean out or have a quick peek at the kits, she’s eating like a horse and looks very fit and well (as do her babies!) so I’m very pleased with her.

The new does, Jezebel and Delilah, have settled in well. Jezebel was in with Samson yesterday and I’ll put her back in tomorrow for a check to see how she reacts – if she’s unwilling to accept him, then hopefully the next litter will be along in a month.

Delilah, who’s a month younger, will be going in with Samson later.
