So anyways, on to an overall general update. I went ahead and moved Tauriel and her babies out here yesterday...
A mommy bunny, nine fat healthy babies and one single feeder was not working out too well! So my general plan is when these are ready to wean, the boys will go in the smaller growout and I'll leave the girls with Tauriel for a bit longer, then move her back to her cage a couple days later. This will prevent mastitis in Tauriel. Needless to say, this pen is working out SO much better.
Here is their normal cage, and as you can see, the growout pen is double or more of this cage.
They are all stuffed in the corner because our neighbor was weed-eating around his mailbox and the bunnies weren't feeling that loud noise.... They don't care about lawnmowers... But saws and weed-eaters scare the crud out of them.
Alright, so next up is my very exciting news! Eden and Elvy aren't due until Monday, however I'm thinking that my Elvy girl is an early nester!
Yup, my little, er, big girl, has been hard at work on a nest for the past couple of days. Eden and Elvy were bred on the same day, and here is a comparison of the two nest boxes this morning when I went out to do chores.
