get the vet as soon as possible! especially for the two on their own did you touch them ?!? i read somewhere that you shouldnt touch babies as it leaves ur smell on them and the mother might no care for them proberly
good luck anyway =D
HI there. Yes, it has been a while... Snowflake had her babies on June 24, 2006. She was a GREAT mom, and did everything like bookwork. Watching the babies grow from little bean sprouts, into fluffy, snuggly pets was a wonderful experience. Although, I wouldn't encourage anyone breeding their pet buns.
In December, I had to part with Snowflake and 3 of the 5 babies we kept. We moved from WA state to New York state. Of course, since being here, we have adopted more buns. I have posted about them under health and care. Particularly, our Hercules.
All of my buns back in WA went to great homes, mostly with friends of mine I have known for years, and I am able to get updates regularly on how they are doing.
Thanks for your inquiry.
Hi lilmizzsnickerz, I just wanted to give you a heads up that it's okay to touch them if the mother knows your scent, and some aren't even that particular. I know alot of people believe what you read, and I have also read in some places that it's not good to touch the babies. (I think many people get this from what people say about wild babies)
But as long as the mother is familiar with the scent of everyone then it is okay. I have personally spoken with rabbit experts about this. (rabbit rescues, breeders, vets)
Doesn't mean though that anyone should play with them of course, but if you need to get them to a better position or change something then it's okay.
okay thankz i was just a little confused
