Yay Gayl! Good job, Phineus! Woot! Four more baby bunnies!
There’s one pink one (most likely a Ruby Eyed White), one chocolate and two black ones. This is Gayle’s first litter as well as Phineus’ first litter so we have two first time parents. Gayle built a nest and put the babies in it. Although she also put the ti leaf in there, too, so she’s still at the fill the nest stage, I guess. I gave her some more grasses so she can eat the ti leaf and put the grasses in there.
I had hoped Jessie, Suzie & Sirocco were going to have babies, too, but they don’t seem to have any. Sirocco hasn’t even bothered to make a nest but Jessie & Suzie had made nests. There’s still a day or two left before we can figure there won’t be any, but if they do have them they will be taking longer than usual.
I didn’t want to take them all out of the nest since they’re still so new, but I think at least some part of all four of them is visible.
So with these babies, we now know that Gayle has the recessives for chocolate and REW and we know that Phineus has the recessive for REW, too. Yay! It’s always good to find out more about a bunnies color genetics so we can figure out which colors to expect.
And there’s an excavator in the back yard!
The big pile of brush and trees that had been piled up there earlier is all gone now. Yay! Now we just need to figure out what sort of house to build there. The bunnies will get a bigger and better bunny yard, too.
