On the subject of litters-

Keep's Basheba had her first litter today. Unfortunately, 4 were born at the very front of the nestbox and froze. The other 5 were born into a nest that was dug down to the bottom of the nestbox and sparsely covered in hair.

We were able to revive three in tepid water. Later one of those passed away.

The other two were marked in their ears and placed in with Keep's Eve, who is nursing 8 babies of her own. If Wooligans Raleigh, a wooley, has her babies tonight or tomorrow morning, she'll probably be given at least one mini lop baby to take care of.

The good news is- at least we're getting live babies!

Hello, congrats on the live babies, its hard this time of year. I also am an appalchian breeder, I just started again after having to stop for college. I have almost graduated, and have chosen mini rex to breed. Just thought I'd say hi, and your rabbit in the photo is very handsome!
