I decided not to scare anyone this time...lol. My bunny just had 4 healthy, squirmy little kits! This is her first litter so we were expecting some loses, if not the whole litter and here we have 4 live babies! I know, Im ridiculously excited about this! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Anyway, I took a couple pics, I dont want to mess with them too much as she isnt very happy with me moving them around, but thats what I could get. They're on my blogger in my siggy. I'll update as they get fur and look less like naked mole rats <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Oh I forgot rabbits are born nakedy! The last time we had little ones it was from a newly adopted guinea pig (that suddenly seemed to gain a lot of weight). Guinea pig babies are born with fur.<br><br>
We had rabbits when I was little. So soft. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I'll take a pic of one up close when I check their bellys for fatness tomorrow (skinny baby buns after 24 hours=vet time!)

Awww so cute. I took a pic of the runt but they squirm a TON, so it was kinda hard. He kept rolling on the couch and when I tried to hold him, he kept falling off my hand, lol (onto the couch just below, no hurting the baby!!). I think I'm going to have to supplement that one too-all the other ones had nice fat bellies this morning except that one. I still think it ate but not enough. If he makes it he'll probably be an awsome bunny though-it'll be like I'm his mama too *sniff* Anyway, putting the pic up on my blog <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Awww they're getting fur! And fat! Except the runt, I dont think he's going to make it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> He definately hadnt eaten today so I MADE her nurse him (you flip them upside down and let the baby nurse, lol) but he got tired fast. I need some goat milk and get some food into him, ugh. I know he'l probably die anyway but I HAVE to try or I'll feel guilty. I think if he lives I'll end up keeping him, lol. I'm all attached now *sniff*<br><br>
I have to take them all out in about 6 days to clean their nest before their eyes open, so I'll take some really good pics then!

I love guinea pigs! We used to raise them too. The babes are so much easier. Come out running - with hair and ready to go... unlike helpless bunnies.

Can I kill my son? Please?<br><br>
He is normally kept in his room until we are up. He has issues (he's adhd and bipolar) and his internal *you shouldnt do that* alarm just dosent work, lol. Anyway, he snuck down stairs this morning while we were trying to sleep in the heat still and sprayed Febreeze air effects ALL OVER the mom and the kits. I washed the mom and dried her but I'm not sure what to do about the kits....or the nest. All the fur (they pull fur out to line the nest) is saturated in Febreeze.<br><br>
And no, I have no clue whatsoever what in the world was going through his head!!!!

Oh and the runt was almost dead this morning so I put him in the freezer instead of letting him suffer, he was even thinner and theres just nothing left to him. I'm sad now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
