More Bunnies!


Yesterday our doe (that is what you call a female rabbit) had her third litter of bunnies. So far, so good! The first two didn't make it, so this is very exciting for everyone. I counted six, or seven, or eight . . . they are really hard to count when they are that small and wiggly! We will see how many there are in a few weeks when they start hopping all over the hutch. Craig is beginning to formulate plans for our rabbit tractor. A rabbit tractor is a moveable pen that holds the rabbits on the ground which allows them to eat grass. The tractor is moved each day so the rabbits always have a fresh supply of grass. This way the droppings are naturally spread out on the pasture as well.
