well done on being able to take them in see if once bun is handed over the previous owner would let you contact the other"new owners" of the young kits and if they could possibly stay with mum until 8 weeks instead then be rehomed back to the "new owners" let us know how you get on xx

there is a chance if you did this mum wouldn't feed them ifthe babys have been away for a while so unfortunatly i wouldn't bother. At 5 week old baby will be feeding itself and still suckeling from mum and the risk during house moving is much lower but there is still a risk make sure you keep mum and baby as quiet as possible and try if you can to get soemthing from the owner out of there old hutch, some hay or shavings, even mums nest of the owner hasn't got rid of it. good luck and keep us posted

Sounds familair this story. I took in 4 babies from a lady selling them at 4 weeks, however she would not give up mum. I can report however they they are all growing fast and healthy and have no health probs. I may just have been lucky with them. There were 8 to start but i only managed to get 4. Best of luck with this and I hope it goes well xxx

Get mum and babies away from the woman, she is obviously clueless.
What time you going to collect them?
