On Time..

Fifi about to start labour and biting on some straw

Fifi, our rescue bunny, has delivered 6 gorgeous healthy looking pink naked little babies on the 13th of November at 8.30am. I was right there to witness it and it was amazing. She was super organised getting the kids room/nestbox ready , very early, and when it was time, she just hopped in and sat there, cleaning the babies as they popped out one by one. It was a bit gross to see her eating the after births but hey, its part of nature and it does give her some strength back as well. So all good. (although I do wonder if they serve up a nice placenta cocktail in the hospital to the new mums after they have delivered their babies

I managed to take some photos and some sneaky videos. Watch my YouTune Channel (ixchelbunny1) for those soon !

Here are some photos of the gorgeous Fifi and her babies:

Close up of the babies after 4 days: they all are going to be white judging by the fluff and the skin colour: although they all look like little pink piggies now …
