Black New Zealand Babies Arrive

It is with great excitement and pleasure that we announce the arrival of Baccara Rose's and Swift's first litter of black new zealand kits on Tuesday, November 20, 2018.  Six little bundles of bunny joy to be grateful for just in time for Thanksgiving.

Tuesday while I was out in the afternoon doing cage cleaning and maintenance, trying to take advantage of the warmer weather we have had this week and I noticed that Baccara was pulling hay from her hay rack and stashing it in her nesting box.  So I gave her a huge handful to go with the already prepped and padded straw in the box and enjoyed watching this first time mom build a nest like a pro.  It is to date one of the very best nests I have ever seen built.  The hay and straw was practically woven together on all sides until there was a cozy little burrow.  Happy with her work and resting I finished my chores.

By the time evening feeding came around and we returned to the barn, she had delivered her entire litter and was happily munching on hay and pellets.  I am pleased to see this morning when I went to check on everyone that they are all full of energy and have nice round bellies.  I have a very grateful heart this morning for these six little miracles.
