Here are my Rex kits when they were 3 weeks old. They are now 5 and a half weeks old and getting cheeky as they try to hop out of their cages!

Born a few days ago. Didnt know my female was pregnant! I have my two females together and they take turns protecting these little guys. I dont think my California is the mom because the gray and white one protects them most and jumps to go protect them. Most of the fur pulled is gray. Two died and were kicked to the side when I discovered them. But we have 5 who are getting more active by the day! They actually hop now when surprised but theyre very small. 🥰 I love this! Our first generation born here. Two have the Rhinelander pattern of dady bun, 2 are gray and 1 is black.

These little English angoras are out of Hillside Black Lotus by Hillside DaffyDill. Her second litter and his first. Litter of six, three black, one chocolate and two tortoiseshell. No REW even though both parents have the recessive for it. Only two torts, even though DaffyDill is a tort and Lotus has the recessive for it.

They showed up a day early and this picture was taken when I went out to check and make sure her nest box was ready. I'll put a note on her chart to get her nest box ready at least a day early.

The name theme this year is names starting with "V" for Virus and/or hopefully Vaccine. These bunnies provide fiber for Hula Bunny yarn which is colored by the color of the bunnies. Which means we probably won't be keeping the tortoiseshells since we already have enough fiber providers in that color. We will probably choose one of the black ones, depending on quality, conformation, gender, etc. But, it's still way too early to pick and choose who's going to become part of the herd and who's going to move to a new home later.

English angora, they need a bit of growing before they get fuzzy. Five black, one albino and I'll be keeping at least one doe if not two and maybe the best buck as well.

Now there needs to be a name theme for this year. Last year it was names starting with 'V' for Vaccine. Now, maybe some sort of cosmic names? Luna, Stella, Star, Comet, Phobos, Io, Juno, whatever the names of Jupiter's moon are. Jupiter and Pluto, too, for that matter?

Otherwise, what's a good name theme for this year? We've done spices, qualities of light, atmospheric conditions, names of famous people (I get to pick who's famous, though), names that started with 'Z' (the first baby of that year told me his name was Zookie Schwartz), Roman names, 'V' names and now?

Lotus did it again, a day early! I think there's nine of them there, they're probably less than two hours old. I guess you can tell from the wool in the nest that these are English angoras.

This is the same litter later in the same day.

They've dried off and aren't so shiny anymore. The doe is black and the buck is agouti. Not quite sure what all colors are in here. Some agouti, maybe a lilac? Chocolate? Opal? Don't see any of the bright pink ones that are albino, though. But, some more agouti of any variety will be nice.

Lotus is a sweet doe, she didn't hardly get grumpy at me for fussing with her babies. She did get bribed with some grasses, though. Bunnies sure are easy to bribe.
