Bunny Watch: Champagne

Champagne (our biggest New Zealand doe) is going to kit this week.

A few facts:

30 days = a rabbit’s gestation

once in 24 hours= the frequency of the doe feeding her kits

3 to 5 days= about how long before the babies get fur

10 days= the time the bunnies will open their eyes

2 weeks= about the time before the babies are ready to leave the nest and begin hopping about the cage

Champagne is a lovely doe, and currently very docile.  She is happy to be stroked and likes her nose scratched but this is our first litter from her so until we see her caring for them appropriately we don’t know what sort of breeder she will make.

I promise pictures of tiny baby bunnies when we start to see them!  Welcome to bunny watch 2015! 🙂
