  • Hi Tiny Tails, thanks so much for your reply in my question about raising baby bunnies, something I've never done before.
    So the babies are 5 days old today. They all seem content and decently "fat" in the belly. The bellies aren't necessarily white...their skins are pink, except for one totally black skinned baby, so their bellies are pink with white new fur.....what do you mean by white bellies?

    Out of concern that this one wasn't getting enough milk I did hand feed her yesterday and today...using Wombaroo Rabbit Milk Replacement and a syringe. She didn't seem too eager to drink...she did drink some but it was slow going, basically just one drop at a time offered up to her to see if she would lap it up or not...yesterday she drank more but today seemed less interested

    I hope this means she's been well fed and doesn't need much more.

    Another concern was that the Mama, who first pulled out her fur to build her nest, has now been eating some of her own fur that she built her nest with! She will nibble some of the hay from the nest and eat some of her fur that's in it.

    So I made some little nest items with thin strips of paper towel in case more insulation is needed and put some of those in....

    what an adventure! The babies are so precious....
