2014 Angora Rabbit Litters Day 2

LilyDaughterLitterJan14 Day 2

I brought the nestboxes inside overnight since temperatures are expected to drop into single digits.  It might be hard to see but the kits are starting to grow fur – the sheen you are seeing is their equivalent of a five o’clock shadow.  Full bellies let me know their mom is doing her job.  It is rare to actually see a doe nurse.  Rabbits only nurse once or twice a day and it only takes a couple of minutes. This chestnut kit has a nice plump belly.
