Last weekend this blue eyed boy went off to his new home to live with his new friend, Chickpea. Chickpea was Phumela’s first kit and her family decided it’s time to get her a friend.
Wallace is Mushroom and Levi’s kit who was born on 6 August 2013. He is such a placid little bunny and loves cuddles and body rubs. Mushroom has the cutest kits with adorable white markings.
Chickpea came over to meet Wallace when he was about 6 weeks old. We were a little apprehensive at first, but the two hit it off and chased each other playfully. He went off to his new home and I’m happy to report that after a weeks’ bonding process, the two are friends. They’re eating together and doing happy little binks together!
We’ve scaled down on our amount of rabbits over the last month or two. We now have 4 bucks and 5 does and will most likely let 1 pair go to a new home soon. Although the adult buns are getting fewer, I’m happy to post about two pregnancies!
Levi and Mushroom mated for the second time about 2 weeks ago. I’m still hopeful for a BEW, but we’ll have to see. Their previous kit was so cute and super friendly.
Mushroom’s expected due date is 8 August 2013 and there’s already someone that’s booked a kit from her expected litter! Mushroom is a lovely bun, but not very friendly during pregnancies! The band-aids on my hands can vouch for that!
Then we’ve paired Bugs and Clover. They are exremely cute and affectionate together and their little fuzzy faces look like a match made in heaven. Clover’s mommy is Phoebe, so there might be a chance of a himalayan kit, but we don’t really care, as long as the kit or kits are as adorable as Bugs’ previous little sweetheart, Bonbon. We miss that cute fur ball so much!
This beautiful little girl in the photograph above is Mushroom’s kit. There was a little girl here over the weekend, looking at our bunnies and she fell in love with this blue eyed bunny. She was here with her parents and they were chatting and looking at bunnies, but the little girl was holding on to this bunny like she’s been her pet bunny for years. It was absolutely adorable! I’m still waiting to find out her name and will uodate this post then.
Mushroom and Levi’s kit is now 2 weeks old already. It has just started coming out of the nest and it is bouncing around the cage chasing mommy for milk! It seems to have Mushrooms’ very lively personality – hopping around like a little crazy monkey bunny. We were so hoping for blue eyes, but unfortunately that did not happen… Brown eyes does not make it any less cute, though!
Mushroom had one little kit yesterday morning, 5 May 2013. So far it seems healthy and well looked after. It is her first kit, so we are keeping a close eye. The kit seems to have “dutch” markings, but we will be able to see better in a few days.
Levi and Mushroom have been paired up and Mushroom is at 30 days today in her pregnancy. I am very hopeful to have little black and white buns and maybe even one with blue eyes. Obviously I will keep you posted on the results! Happy weekend to all our bunny friends!
