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.

Babette and Joshua's Kits Born January 24, 2018 Babette had five kits, but two were peanuts that died shortly after birth. The remaining three kits appear to be doing well. I believe two are broken black, but the third is to be determined. Pictures will be posted in another day or two, when Babette is more comfortable with me moving her nest box.
2/6/18 Update...These little ones are getting ready to open their eyes in another day or two. There are two broken black and a broken blue, which is a first for us. All are doing very well. :)
2/19/18 Update...Sadly, the broken blue kit died today, after a couple days of "off" behavior and supplemental feeding. The remaining kits seem to be doing well.
Anastasia and Dexter's Kits Born January 19, 2018 Stacie had four kits, but lost one after a couple days. One solid squirrel and two brokens. I believe one is a squirrel, but the other one has me a bit puzzled. We are hoping the solid is a doe as all of our solid squirrels have been bucks so far.
2/6/18 update...Stacie's babies are at the adorably cute stage now, squinting at the world through newly opened eyes. A solid squirrel, a broken squirrel, and Mystery Bun. Mystery Bun is the go-getter in this litter and has been getting out of the nest box already.
Sweet Tart and Luigi's Kits Born November 14, 2017 Five healthy charlie kits. They are all the spitting image of Luigi, with adorable little moustaches. The colors appear to be three black tort, one chestnut, and one orange.
December 18, 2017 - I couldn't resist taking a peek at genders today. I am about 80% sure the Chestnut, smallest tort (with unlopped ears so far) and the orange are does. We may be keeping the orange if she grows out well and has nice type. The other two black torts look like bucks. This in not the official gender reveal. I should be certain in another week to ten days. :)
