Sydney delivered 8 healthy, fat and squeaky bunnies at 8:10 yesterday morning. She is content and eating and they are well fed and simply gorgeous. I am so totally proud of her! Just 5 weeks ago she had a disastrous first litter and was afraid of her own shadow. Now, she has tackled motherhood with a calmness and assuredness that I wonder over.
Her first pregnancy was filled with fear and she ate very little. Her second pregnancy was all about food. She ate 3x the normal ration for a rabbit and put back all her body weight, fed her developing bunnies, and then some. My husband commented that maybe it took the first loss to have her hormones kick in. What ever it was, all systems are "a go" now.
These bunnies, 4 (look to be) black (at this point) and 4 white/torte (can't tell yet!) are Taurus Sun, Cancer Rising, Libra Moon. They will be beautiful, stubborn, home loving, loyal bunnies.
We are very, very pleased with the days events!
