Hello again Im so so sorry for such a long time away from my blog things have truly been weird ,hectic,mad you name it lol... but anyway things have been more than eventful on the bunny side of things the last time i blogged we had gotten a new rabbit to keep poppsie company we wanted a female but after having it a few weeks we discovered she was now a he i didnt have the heart to take him back to the shop so we kept him gave him a name change from Daisy may to Dizzie and he certainly made us all dizzy lol...we had him castrated to make him more friendly so at that point we had two bucks problem of a companion for popps wasnt really solved so we decided to go get a doe for the two boys to have a distraction we went to the pet shop but didnt see any suitable doe rabbits. There was a couple wandering around the shop talking about rabbits they had to find homes for now i dont usually earwig on peoples conversations but i approached them and asked whether they had bucks or does the lady said three month old does so we agreed to go have a look...we did this she had four pretty little does she was breeding rabbits and pigs for meat this wasnt how i visioned these little bunnies so as our garden is of a good size we decided to take the four our bucks had both been castrated so we assumed it was safe... well after letting all the bunnies play together they all got on really well popps was no longer lonely Dizzie had playmates and all was after 28 days yeah you can pretty much guess what happened..babies no less than 13 of them after phoning my vets to see what went wrong i was told that dizzie should of been kept apart from the girls for a month we were not told this and i feel embarassed for not already knowing but it was never a problem before, We have kept male and female rabbits for the past ten years but always got both neutered/spayed so no babies this was all new to us and quite a worry what should i do if anything to make sure they would be allright? Unfortunately or maybe fortunately for us room ways we lost eight of the babies so just five left now they are three weeks old today and look lovely it was our mistake and so we just have to deal with it never mind.... live and learn it wont happen again so i just as well enjoy the experience i was really worried knowing how young the does were they shouldnt really have young from what ive read until their at least six months old but our girls were just three almost four months old i just want to do whats best for all of them i have been like a worried mother for the past three weeks im not made for this worry lol... below are some pics of the babies Thanks to all of you who worried about me and sent messages sorry to make you worry im fine and hope to update more often from now on enjoy the pictures xx Baby bunnies 2 days old, 7 days old, 18 days old
