    Good News- My Holland Lop(Honey Bunny) had four kits today. :dance:

    Bad News- Two of the kits died. :Bawling: And my being a softy buried them in the woods.

    Is there any thing special I should do with Honey and the two living kits?
    This is the second time I've had rabbits but I freaking out this time, because I realize all the things I did wrong with the first litter (out of different rabbit) and the other rabbits five years ago.

    I can now get a good nights sleep because I'm not worried about Honey :cool:

    Nothing special you need to do, just make sure that if the temps get up really hot again you might want to bring the nestbox in the house during the day and return it to the cage at night.
    Congratulations! Hope they grow to be beautiful little Holland Lops for you! :)
