Easter arrivals

Rabbits Fern & Bramble delivered their litters on Good Friday, Fern's litter consists of six bunnies, while Bramble delivered a small litter of three. Below are a couple of videos of the new rabbit kits at one day of age. Although many believe a rabbit will abandon it's litter if they are handled, this is not the case, not even with wild rabbits, if you come across a nest, leave it alone, it may seem abandoned, but mom will be hiding nearby. Unlike dogs, rabbits only visit their nest to nurse the young once or twice a day, causing concern among people that the mom isn't coming back.
