John and Jill’s baby bunnies are growing up nicely. Absolutely Jill is a good mother. She had 4 kits and 4 are still alive. I read on a website usually first time mom rabbits don’t take care of their young or at least 1/2 the kits don’t survive. Jill had 4 kits and 4 kits are alive still. YAY !!
I named them the Maniac litter because they act like maniacs. Although for my rabbit records I’m going to use the letter “z” to name them. I didn’t sex them yet I figure wait till day 14 or 16 to do that as one website mentions.
Starlights 4 kits did die. 3 died the night of day 2 and the 3rd kit died the morning of day 3. Darn it.
I’m thankful Jill’s 4 kits are well and active, I look forward to seeing them grow up and picking one to show. I do have an idea of which one but I’m sure you can tell until they are at least 6 weeks old.
Here’s a picture of the maniacs on day 7. They are so darling !!
