The Rabbit Momma’s have been hopping to it over the past few days..
Litter #1 -13 kits, all Black and White Pointed. Tones of hair pulled and at the back corner like she likes to do..
Litter #2 – 9 Kits -First time mom, this one is a mix of black, grey and broken with white kits, she had them in a very loose nest but they all have full bellies.
Litter #3-8 kits, Solid Blacks, Solid “grey” and Broken Black and Grey’s, she had them in a tighter nest, not nearly as much hair pulling but they are content little poppers and all have good full bellies, she made a high berm of hay around them and clearly means it.. you just stay in there lol More Broken with white colors in this litter then in the other one.
Litter #4 I almost thought I had somehow messed up my photo taking but I knew I had not.. I was tempted to go back out and move a kit around or two.. and then thought.. nah.. so 9 kits, most of them broken with white, some black, no grey that I could find in this one.. this mother is a littermate sister to litter #2 and has the same male.. her sister’s litter and her own in these photo’s appear so close to each other its crazy, same longer line style.. but I will give you my word, another nine kits and as they get a bit bigger, more and better photos will be coming!
So over three days we had 39 kits born, and 9 weaned into grow out pens. While I am very happy with my girls, I will let them raise the kits for a few weeks before I think about breeding them back again. I thought I would for these four only, do a full track out on them for costs, as I have not done that for a while and because three of the four girls are new to the farm and I want to track growth rates and end results etc.
