    First, wife went to feed the rabbits and the momma has died. 4 kits survive and are eating on their own at 2 weeks. Very lucky they are eating as we only will feed them vitamins twice a day and they will drink milk and feed on hay and softened pellets the rest of the time.

    Wife went out tonight to lock up all our animals and found our two barn dogs fighting and it was over a baby wild rabbit body. She looked around and found one baby rabbit still alive and well so we now have that one in with the other rabbits but this one is small in size compared to the others. It's eyes are open so that is a plus and we are waiting to see if he/she will eat on her own, if not it's bottle feeding time LOL

    Sorry about your rabbits...and sorry your wife gets to keep having bad discoveries.

    Hope all the babies do well.
