Set 1 we think are about 10-12 days old and are starting to open eyes - nest is lovely dry and warm.
set 2 are 4 days old - and am having change nest every 2 days due to getting damp - but being fed and kept warm ok

Glad they are doing well, if you arent doing so already it may be advisable to give mum a little time away from the babies in the day day, they usually only feed them at night anyway, and it should help prevent her getting stressed by them. You could also attach a run to the hutch, so that she can come and go as she pleases - this would be preferable, as some does may get stressed if they cant get back to their babies.

luckily she can escape them by hopping up above the bedroom area...which she kept doing yesterday...lol
