The bunnies have started to come out of the den on a regular basis and are eating pellets and drinking water. They are not being nursed anymore. It is time to put them in their own cages, but I don't yet have cages. Also, I have not figured out how to catch them, since the moment they see me, they retreat back to their underground burrow. I have thought of sitting there quietly with something to cover the burrow, but then all six babies would have to come out before I covered it. Or, I guess not. I could catch one or two at a time. They are so adorable at this age. These rabbits are basically spoken for, if there is a male and four females. They will be sold to a local fellow for breeding, but not with pedigrees. It is either that, or eat them, and they are so darn cute, that is going to be hard to do at any stage. Some farmer, hmmm?
