Well, i guess theres a first time for everything. Just found a little one with its foot stuck in the cage. No idea how long it'd been there. It looks as if it managed to get on top of the nest box, it was that high up. Poor thing.
Other than that, everybody seems okay. They opened their eyes a couple of days ago and are just starting to get around.

Well, that's not good. How's the lil fella doing?
Sorry! I didnt see this. Well, it didnt go to waste. I work with a biologyteacher that has a reptile and snake rescue in his classroom. The bigger snake had a good snack.

They all had some playtime yesterday. As soon as they hit the ground theystarted eating grass like tiny sheep :lol:

Alrighty. A neighbor just gave us a wild baby bunny. They thought it was ours at first but suspected it may be wild and thought it was hurt. It does have splayed legs but seems just fine. It survived the night so far. I have no idea how old it is but not weaned for sure. It isnt drinking water, eating carrot, banana or any greens I picked from the outside - dandelion, tender beet greens, tiny ground ivy leaf. So we got some kitten milk and will try that. I have no idea where their nest may be so I cant really put it back outside.

You can also add a tablespoon of 100% heavy whipping cream with no sugar to each can of Kitten milk and use a syringe to feed it. They don't do nipples well. Unfortunately it's a slim chance it will survive but it never hurts to try, I did. ;)

Good news: baby wild bunny seems to be doing fine. I’ll feed it for another day and let it go.
Its eating greens really well and someone more familiar with the wild ones said its likely weaned :bunny

I’ll prob make it a safe place outside but it'll be free to go.

I thought it may hang around a bit but it didn't, hopefully it'll do fine.

Yay! I sold two littles to a farm store. I wasn't going to go that route but no one is answering my CL ad this time around. Hopefully, they’ll buy the rest too :fl

I do have someone from TN asking and am curious where they got my info. I am listed as a breeder on ARBA and The Livestock Conservancy, so hopefully thats paying off :fl

I havent posted on here in way too long Sorry! Its been super auiet on the rabbit front, but everything else has been beyond hectic.
well, it was quiet on the rabbit front, until Monday. I posted on BYC about it and will post the link to that here https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/infected-swelling-on-rabbits-face.1582500/#post-26892255

here is a pic after itd been completely cleaned. Any clue on what may have happened?
this is a hundred times better than what we had before. The pix in the other thread are pretty graphic, as you can imagine.
