PostSubject: Hand reared babies   Tue 04 Mar 2014, 7:07 pm

1 day before we moved house a neighbour of mine decided to sell a few rabbits she had bought off me just a few months earlier. I wasn't happy and even though we were about to move, I told her I wanted 1 back and would take the other after the move.

As soon as I brought her home and popped her in a cage, she started next building. I contacted my neighbour and asked if she could be pregnant. Nope, no way. that night she gave birth to 5 babies...

Turns out that the neighbiours dad had let the boys and girls out together.

The rabbit was stressed and scared and moving her so close to giving birth meant she had freaked out and scattered the nest and babies. 2 were dead but 3 were alive but a bit bruised. So, on moving day I had an extra special box to take with me and this became the babies home for 2 weeks while I fed and cared for them.





Sadly at 3 weeks old one died. The other 2 did brilliantly and as you can imagine, I grew very attached to them and there is no way I am parting with them. 1 is male, the other female so they will have to be neutered so they can stay together.



Here they are now at 3 months old. We named them Miley and Twerk  lol!

They are gorgeous and very special. My little miracles.

I had to rehome the others when we moved as this flat is much smaller but I did keep Panda and he's now allowed to say hello to the little ones but only through the cage bars until they are all neutered.
