Quick Info

Quick Info

TBD when the babies are closer to 5-6weeks, we can get an idea.  This is of course double checked when babies are split into weaning stalls by gender.  Then checked again BEFORE going to new homes just to make sure.

Colors

Quick Info

SET TO WEAN APRIL 7TH

Every baby in this litter is a pristine white, with the rare Brown Eyes instead of the albino pin eyes of their Mother.

SET TO WEAN APRIL 7TH

Babies here at the Cotton Patch spend 5-7days in a weaning stall, where they learn to be big baby bunnies away from Mom.  During this time babies are  not handled by visitors, this allows them to continue to develop a strong immunity.  These dates are tentative, we play everything by Bunny Ear here!

NEW HOMES APRIL 14TH

SET TO WEAN APRIL 7TH

NEW HOMES APRIL 14TH

Babies will be allowed to go to their new homes starting April 14th.  This date is tentative and assumes Mrs. Lace will nurse the babies until they are 8weeks.  At 8weeks of age the babies will move into a weaning stall where they will remain for a week while they learn how to big.  

Care Packages

SET TO WEAN APRIL 7TH

NEW HOMES APRIL 14TH

Every baby bunny is sent home with a General Care Sheet and a well stocked transitional care package.  This is to ensure our babies have the absolute best start possible, so they can grow to be big giant bunnies!

A Couple days Old Here

Mrs. Lace kindled a whopping 15 LIVE babies, all uniform in size with zero birth losses.  This is an almost impossible number for a seasoned Mom, muchless a new Mom like her.  We placed three babies into two adjacent litters for fostering to lighten her load.

Fur Just Came In

The babies are born fur-less, but within a day or so it comes in.

Early Color

We knew every baby was going to be solid white.  What we wanted to know was how many would have Pink Eyes (like Mom) or Brown Eyes (like Dad).  Tentatively, we believe every single baby to have Brown Eyes.   Exceptionally rare!

Striking Brown Eyes Against That White Fur!

Starting to explore outside the nestbox

Babies are still almost entirely dependent on Mom for milk, so stay very close to the nestbox.  They start to explore outside, but quickly duck back into safety!
