    Although Bella hasn't been outside yet if you are going out to pixie and Daisy after being with Bella they might be able to smell her. I remember a member on here once having buns around at her house on holiday and even though her buns couldn't see the visitors, the smell of them on her caused them to have a tiff. She moved them further away and fed the visitors last and things calmed down

    I didnt even think about them smelling her. Fingers crossed this is just a phase and i can get them rebonded when they are both spayed. Thankyou everyone for the ideas. xx

    I thought i would give the shed an aviary a good clean out to dampen down daisies smell. The cat carrier that pixie and daisy came in is on one of the shelves in the shed and i had put some straw in for a bed for them. Come to clean the carrier out and found a nest of 5 babies right at the back of the carrier. I have been it a right flap all day trying to find out whos babies they are, i think they are pixies but not 100% sure. I am thinking they can only be bleus babies since he is the only un-neutered male (4 wks ago), but nobody in the house is owning up to letting him meet pixie and daisy. They have come from somewhere though and they are both 100% girls thats the 1st thing i checked. Is if possible that both could have had babies in the same nest. If bleu has been with 1 of them he could have been with them both. Im so mad right now, and panicing too, incase i have took the mum away from them. They look around 4-5 days old, they have colouring but eyes are firmly shut.

    Wow WS, you seem to have an ever expanding bunny family

    So if they are Bleu's babies, that would explain the bust up between Pixie and Daisy?

    But yes, how to find out who's babies they are. I am thinking that the mum would look different underneath and have swollen nipples? Worth looking at both girls to see if there's any evidence of that or fur pulling from dewlap etc.

    I guess you could also risk putting Pixie and Daisy in with the babies and see who goes to feed them? The non-mother shouldn't care about the babies

    Good luck

    The Doe who has kindled will be lactating, so you could check for that to try to establish who's Kits they are


    Can you offer Rosie and Lucy a Forever Home, they have been waiting for so long ? The girls are beautiful, Rosie has a bit of 'Hare' about her and Lucy has a little mane and tufty bum fluff !.

    Sorry but I have to chuckle as this is so typical of rabbits. They create so much panic and stress at times, thankfully not all the time! Good luck! Just a thought - it's usually the dominant doe which has the babies.

    Pixie looks fuller than daisy around the breasts but its not overly noticable at all. Ive been going from one bun to the other comparing. Its nothing like when squiggles had babies, she was full with milk. If the babies are around 4 days would she get full looking with milk. I have done some reading and 5 babies from a netherland dwarf seems like a lot, plus Bleu is a french lop so how she has survived i do not know. Pixie is wanting loads more food so i thought this might also be i sign she is the mum.

    Because Pixie was the one really attacking in the first place, I would ere more on the side of Pixie being the mother.
