We have all heard about things, “”multiplying like bunnies” One of our friends recently had quite a shock. When the family came home one evening, a check of the Rabbitry revealed ten (yes, 10) kits in a cage with a doe that had NOT been bred! The kits, without a nest, didn’t have much of a chance, but due to some fast thinking on the part of our friends, three survived and are healthy, fat, and happy kits. A little investigation and recall of a recent time when the cages were rearranged for cleaning determined how and when the breeding occurred. The bunnies literally were amorous through the adjoining cage wire. So, a word of caution. Keep your cages sufficiently separated so as to avoid any Forbidden Love episodes in your Rabbitry. By the way, the doe is fine and doing a great job with her kits. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
