Welcome to the Hot Cross Babies page! This is the place where you can read about our current litters and watch the babies grow in stages. As each litter grows up, most of the kits will be listed on our Available Bunnies page, with the occasional bunny being kept to help establish our own breeding line.

After a heartbreaking March and April, with only one living kit out of five pairings, we are hoping May will bring some happy news to our nest boxes. We have set up some new food trials for our pregnant does and are praying that this change will make a big difference to the outcomes of our litters. Please stay tuned!
UPDATE: Keep scrolling down for the results of our most recent litters, which are, most blessedly, happy ones!
