Love Them Babies !!

Just some baby bunny goodness this morning. I took the nest box out several days ago as this litter is almost 3 weeks old. Boy do they leave a whole bunch of bunny berries!!

This little black kit loves to stick out it's tongue :) I have a few pictures of it doing this!

Sammie x Pee Wee - New Litter

Sammie gave birth to 8 beautiful babies yesterday morning while I was out feeding the rabbits :) It is so neat to see a bun giving birth and it's not something that I get to witness very often. For the most part I think that buns have their babies in the dead of the night so I feel extra blessed when I get to see them give birth.

There are 2 nicely marked harlequins up in this litter. I have to say that I was expecting there to be more kits with nice harlequin markings as Pee Wee is pretty nicely marked. However I guess that for he most part this litter took after Sammie who is a very lightly marked Harlequin. We may end up keeping the two best from this litter but that will depend on available cage space too.

Baby Pictures :)

I have to say that I am really loving how this litter is coming along! These kits have such super sweet personalities.We will be keeping this one. 

I could sit all day and just watch them play all day! This one really does not have a brassy overlay to the fur, just my camera being dumb again. It's so hard to get a good photo of these babies as they just always want to be moving around :)

This little one is just adorable, love the wee little white toes and the star on it's head !

This one is amazing in it markings, the one white leg is so cute :) My kids have been calling it Rocket because the minute someone stops at the cage door to peek in it races all the others to be first to get loved on :) Pictures of the other 3 to come later on today!

10 days old

Just a quick little update on Hershey and Pee Wee's babies, they are 10 days old now and just as cute as a button :) Everyone is doing great ! I expect their eyes to open in the next couple of days and then the should start exploring shortly after that.

The little VM black kit in the front has stolen my son's heart. Wade tends to be very partial to kits that look like this one. This is going to be a hard litter to say good bye to - everyone here is already so attached to these little buggers. I wish that we could keep them all !

Pee Wee

Well I finally got around to getting updated pictures of Pee Wee. He's such a doll he kept on wanting to be held instead of sitting pretty for the camera :) Pee Wee carries the Vienna gene and the only evidence of it is a small white streak on the nape of his neck.

I have to say that I have been so pleased with the babies that Pee We has sired and I am looking forward to 3 litters in the next few weeks all sired by him. Silver my American Chinchilla doe is due on the 1st of January and we are crossing our fingers that there will be some Magpies up in that litter :)

Baby Update

This litter is just amazing :) The little silvery kits appears as though they will be lilac's and we may also have a chestnut up in the litter. They are now 4 days old and doing great.I wish they had more white on them from the vienna gene but maybe in the next litter.

Cassie X White Toes

Cassie is such a sweet momma and has done an excellent job raising up this litter :)

This is White Toe's first litter and I have to say that I am quite please with him - I really need to get a more recent picture of him as this is from when he was 9 weeks old.
They had 5 beautiful babies :)

REW female

Black VM male

Chestnut VM female

REW female

Black VM female

All of these guys are being sold as the only one I really wanted was the black VM male but I wanted him to be a her :)I have rebred Cassie to Pee Wee - maybe there will be one in that litter I will keep. Kinda sad that both white's were REW and not BEW.

Hershey x Pee Wee

Hershey gave birth to 7 beautiful babies on 11/29/12 :) She was bred to my buck Pee Wee

I need to get an updated photo of my little man :) He is 9 weeks old in this photo.

The 3 dark ones will be blacks or chestnuts and the other 4 are either opals or lilac's - not quite sure yet.

We will be keeping one or two of the dilutes back from this litter.

Cleo x Moose

This litter turned out super nice - out of the 5 babies 2 of the passed away. These two below are up for sale and we are retaining a nice Vienna marked doe who we are calling Cocco. I will put pictures of Cocco up soon.
