Mrs. Chantilly Lace & Mr. Casper's litter! DOB - 2/07/2020
Expected Size: GIANT: Weights will range 16-21lbs, average will be around 18-19lbs comfortably. No maximum weight, our top healthy weight at our rabbitry 23lbs.
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.
Every baby in this litter is a pristine white, with the rare Brown Eyes instead of the albino pin eyes of their Mother.
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!
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.
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!
Mrs. Chantilly Lace is a White Albino (with red eyes) and is 1/2 Continental Giant & 1/2 Checkered Flemish Giant (CP Original Proprietary Breed)
Mr. Casper is a Ermine (White with Brown Eyes) Purebred Continental Giant.
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.
The babies are born fur-less, but within a day or so it comes in.
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!
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!
Somebunny is always curious!
Wonder what they are discussing?
But those bunny lips!
Its official, every baby in the litter has Brown Eyes. Not a single Albino (red eyed) baby in the bunch! How striking!
