Day Eleven Baby Bunnies

They’re getting bigger, all but one are now over five ounces.   No wonder Cheiri is eating like a little piglet, she’s feeding bigger babies now.  For the next two and a half to three weeks is probably the most stress on the mom bun.  As the babies get bigger, she has to feed them more.  However, they’ll start nibbling on solid food in about two weeks or so.

The little white one is now 5.6 ounces although one of the black ones is now bigger at 5.8 ounces.  If we were picking bunnies to keep at this stage, those two would be at the top of the list.  But, it’s still very early to see how they’ll be when grown up.

Cheiri could use a bit of grooming, but at this stage, we’re just letting her do nothing other than feed babies.  In another three weeks when the babies are more or less weaned, then we will give Cheiri a good grooming since she won’t be all that stressed out anymore.
