Will-o the Wisp & Pumpkin Roll - 5 Kits
Born on March 30, 2021
This is Wispy's first time as a mama, and she kindled her babies in her hay box, rather than in her nest box. We transferred them to the nest box and showed them to her, so hopefully she will catch on to the whole nest box idea for future litters. One kit does appear to be a peanut, but the others look perfectly healthy. We will keep a close eye on them to make certain she is feeding them. Photos will be posted soon!
4/7/21...As you can see from the photos, the babies are doing very well. Even the suspected peanut is growing and getting around pretty well. It could turn out to be bit of a runt, rather than a peanut, but we will be thrilled if this little Bun makes it and thrives. It surprises us every day. Color-wise, it looks like there are some torts, one is possibly a broken black tort and two possible blue tort (one broken, one solid), a broken orange, and one little mystery baby who could go blue tort or blue point (or be something else entirely.) Since we have never been certain of Wispy's coloring, we are a bit hesitant to make firm guesses about her offspring.
4/9/21...We have come to the hopeful belief that the tiny baby we suspected was a peanut is actually just a small Bun. He/she has been coming along very well and has no difficulty getting around. Its hind feet are nearly as long as those of the solid colored litter mates, but a true peanut has very underdeveloped hind legs and would experience difficulty in moving. This baby is keeping well fed and, while still considerably smaller, seems to be developmentally on par with its brothers and sisters. :D
Trixie & Gulliver - 3 Kits
Born on March 30, 2021
Trixie was being secretive this time around. She hid her babies under the folds of her cage liner on a fluffy nest of fur and we kept waiting and waiting for her to kindle, not realizing she had already had them. She was being very cage defensive and we were being mindful of respecting her wishes for us to keep our distance as much as possible. It was only after she settled down and came over for her customary head rubs this afternoon that I was able to give her cage a proper cleaning and found her hidden nest. Silly girl.
4/7/21...Look at these little chunks! I'm in love with all of their minimal markings (still trying to puzzle that one out). One solid harlequin, and two broken magpie babies to love and all are doing very well!
Molly & Gulliver - 6 Kits
Born on February 27, 2021
We don't normally re-breed a doe so quickly after kindling, but Molly was quite despondent after we decided to foster Pocket with Isla, so we realized we needed to make a quick decision. She was very willing to be bred again and rewarded us with six fat little babies at about 2pm. We had been keeping an eye on the BunnyCam all morning, knowing she was very close to kindling time. She pulled fur this morning and waited a while before having her babies on the floor of her cage. We watched the whole thing on the BunnyCam and were able to quickly pop the babies into the nest box when she headed to her food and water for a post-kindling feast.
3/7/21...All of Molly & Gulliver's babies are doing very well. Their coloring is rather mysterious, especially the two-tone baby with spots of color, but we will do our best to figure them out. They are lovely, and it appears we may have some charlies in this litter.
3/14/21...We have more little eyes peering at us from Molly's babies. They are little wiggle worms, which is why many of the pictures are blurry. We selected the best of what we had to work with. LOL!
3/20/21...Molly's babies didn't quite know how to react when we lined them up for their photos. They actually stayed put and no one waddled off. That has to be a first, especially with such a large litter! We love their sweet little faces.
3/31/21...These little ones are growing and getting cuter by the minute. We took a peek at genders and couldn't get a definitive guess on most of them, but two definitely look like little bucks. We're trying to come up with names for them and are open to suggestions. :)
4/7/21...We finally figured out the genders for all of these babies...two little does and four baby bucks.
Goldilocks & Gulliver - 4 Kits
Born on February 26, 2021
Goldilocks kindles four fat little babies in the early hours of the day. All look wonderfully healthy.
3/2/2021...Update! We have two harlequins and two tricolors. I really thought they were going to be magpies, but they surprised us. :D
3/11/21...These little loves are beginning to open their eyes!
3/20/21...Goldilocks decided to break out of her cage during cleaning time and went hopping down the hall, so we used the opportunity to take some quick pictures of her little cuties. In the midst of their photo session, she came hopping into the room and allowed me to scoop her up for her own portrait (we think she was checking in on her babies) and then got back down to do some hopping and zoomies before following her babies back into their cage. She is quite the character and and we love her for it! Her babies are are doing very well and are absolutely lovely. They are quite active and curious already.
3/31/21...These little ones have Easter-themed names! The darker harlequin is Daffodil, the lighter harlequin is Honey Ham, the tricolor with the more defined white cross on its head is Cadbury, and the slightly bigger tricolor with more orange on the head is called Jellybean.
4/7/21...Genders have been determined! Cadbury, Jellybean, and Honey Ham are little bucks, while Daffodil is a beautiful doe. We are planning to retain Honey Ham, so he will not be among the Buns being listed.
Cupcake & Luigi - 3 Kits
Born on February 14, 2021
Cupcake has three lovely, healthy babies with fat, milk-filled bellies. The little peanut is very weak and we don't anticipate it living for more than a day or two. :( Because Luigi is a charlie, all of the babies are broken patterned. It looks like two are broken black and one is either broken chestnut or broken black tort. We'll need to wait a few more days until the fur grows in. Cupcake kept us guessing about where she would actually kindle (give birth) to her babies. She built a nest in her nest box, one in her cardboard box, one on the left side of her cage, and on the front side of her cage. This is a girl who likes to keep her options open, apparently. There was so much hay in her cage, we could barely see Cupcake on the BunnyCam. We'll have to think of some special names for these little Buns since they were born on Valentine's Day. :D
Pictures will be added in a few days. A friend suggested the name Amore (Italian for "love") and my daughter wants to name one "Cupid", and we decided upon "Ninakupenda" for the final name. It means "I love you" in Swahili. Now we need to decide which Bun is which. :D
2/19/21 The little peanut baby died during the night on the 18th, so that anticipated sorrow has come to pass. The other babies, two broken chestnut and a broken black tort (we're certain!) are doing very well. Cupcake is keeping her babies very well fed and they are now at the "pee whenever someone picks them up" stage of development. Ninakupenda is the black tort baby, Cupid is the broken chestnut with less white on the forehead, and Amore has more white on the head.
2/25/21...We had quite a chuckle this evening when we looked at the babies. They are so chubby! I don't know what Cupcake has in her milk, but she is a rock star at keeping them fed! Amore is already heavier than Pocket and the babies' eyes aren't even open yet!
2/28/21...We can't get over the fact that Amore's ears are already lopped at only 2 weeks of age! The babies' eyes are opening and they are going to become mischievous little handfuls any day now. :D
3/10/21...These little beauties are generating a lot of interest and it's easy to see why. They have their sire Luigi's delightfully laid back approach to life and good looks, combined with their dam Cupcake's charm and curiosity. They were a bit sleepy when we took these pictures and video so they are at their most cuddly and teddy bear-like stage. Cupid was decidedly not a fan of having his/her naptime interrupted and ignored the camera almost entirely.
3/17/21...We peeked at genders today, and they were surprisingly quite clear. Amore and Cupid look like little bucks, while Ninakupenda appears to be a doe. We will check again just before they are listed in a week and a half, but we're 98.9% certain their genders are as noted.
