Since this was Batty's first pregnancy, I decided not to mention it on our site unless there was happy kindling news to report. There is! Batty managed to build a nest in her nest box and had five kits this afternoon. Two were stillborn, but the other three are nestled down in a cozy nest of hay, fleece, and bunny fur. Batty, being a petite dwarf bunny herself, definitely carried a larger litter than normal. The kits are quite small, but look healthy, and there is no possibility of peanuts in her litter as she was bred to a false dwarf buck (Winston). She is doing a great job so far!
Amy is the Big Bunny at the Hot Cross Buns Holland Lop Rabbitry. She manages the furry bunnies as well as her own brood of five kits, with the help of her incredibly patient husband of nineteen years. Hot Cross Hoppenings will be a journal of our adventures in Holland Lop life.
