We were excited because one of our rabbits had her first litter. But before we could even send out birth announcements, she got out of her cage and was killed. (We suspect a dog did the evil deed. A wild predator would have dragged her into the woods. The evidence shows that whatever did it entered and exited by our long driveway, and was comfortable spending time out in the open right next to our house. Don't even get me started on my leash-law rant. We've had trouble with 'visiting' dogs before.)
Madman rescued the babies from the nest box and brought them inside.
Here's three of the six babies -
They're a little bigger than a mouse.
And now we're doing this
at least 3 times a day. (We've since bought smaller syringes - that was the only one we could locate at short notice. )
They're messy eaters, so you have to stop and wipe their faces now and then.
Check out the two on the left side of this picture.
They're actually the same size, but baby rabbits seem to have a lot in common with accordions...
