It looks like the nest boxes will be remaining empty until sometime in April or even later. Neither Charlotte nor Gladys gave birth overnight, and their behavior hasn't changed. They are both acting like their non-pregnant selves. While this is disappointing, it can happen.
The upside of this is that I will have more time to work on finding our last little buck just the right home. He is currently living in his solid bottomed cage in our living room, with frequent playtimes in the room itself. I cannot say enough nice things about his sweet, gentle temperament. As he grows out, he is looking like a nicely typed little buck, so he may be offered with his pedigree. I am considering holding off on further breeding until he has been placed in his forever home, as that would be the most responsible course of action to take for a small rabbitry with limited space. If you know of anyone who might be interested, please let them know about this handsome little buck.
