What do I spy?…… BROCCOL(eye)!! haha
All of the babies seem to be eating pellets and drinking from the water bottles. With that being said, it makes my decision to start weaning them even easier. My plan is to move the largest five into their own cage, and leave the smallest four to nurse for another week.
Hopefully this will give momma rabbit a break as well. The babies are after her non-stop.
Some of the plants in the herb garden are filling out, and others are less impressive.
The babies will be 3 weeks this Tuesday, and they are every where now. There is a small gap inbetween the plywood walls and the metal door so that all of the mechanisms of the door work. Well, they found that small gap and traveled into the cages of the male rabbits.
We got quite a lot of rain this week and a few cooler mornings.The garden is growing and so are the weeds. I am getting a much better handle on the weeds and am looking forward to being able to only pick a weed here or there to maintain the control.
The babies are growing so much. I really wasn’t expecting them to open their eyes for a couple more days, but all of them opened with no problems.
This week I spent several hrs working on getting the weeds under control. I broke down and bought some Preen. I didn’t want to use any chemicals in the garden at all, but the weeds are OUT OF CONTROL. Despite the weeds, I was able to harvest a few things…

Wow, talk about amazing! These little guys are just over a day old and you can already see hair starting to grow. They jerk around and nestle in amongst each other. Read the rest of this entry
