:D As some of you may have read my posts in 'rabbit care' Mitsy has had eight babies and they are absolutely the sweetest, most darling things in the world. I desperately want to keep them but my boyf wont let me as we dont have the facilities so i kno really its not fair. :cry:

Although only a week old i check them everyday and at present it looks like there will be 3 black one, one white poss red eyes as his daddy did, one black n white and the rest look grey but may turn brown. They are a cross between Mitz who is the dominant gene, not sure exactly of her breed as is a cross but she looks like a wild hare/rabbit lol, the daddy was a dwarf lop eared bun, white with red eyes. Ill include a few pics of Mitz and the babies in this message also.

If anyone near Bristol or willing to travel to us is interested in rehoming I would be so pleased as I have to know they r goin to good homes.

Please please please if anyone can home them or knows of anybody that would make a good bun mum they will be ready aroung wk ten xx :lol:

Hi i've just been looking at your pics and the black one on the top is definitely an agouti like mom, this is a dominant colour so you will probaly find the other blacks will be agouti as well including the broken, the greys are dilute colours, i suspect they will be opals, although one looks like the colour extends to his belly as well so could be a blue. When they are 10 days the colours should be clearer so if you post some more pics I should be able to tell you what they are.

Oh, I'm in Bristol!

If you're still looking for homes in July (remember that they'll need to be with mum for a while)...which I doubt...please give me a shout!

I can't take them until July because my current flat is just too small to house any more buns...*sigh*

Hi, they don't need to be with mum that long - 8 weeks is when they should be separated from mum but the babies should still live together until 10 weeks before selling. As long as they are weaned fully and about 8 weeks they can leave mum.
