Freya feeds her babies twice a day – early in the morning and late in the evening. We have noticed the skin colour developing: darker, less pink.
You can see in this video that they’re starting to make noises!:
Today, we also found out how important it is to check the babies day by day. My mum was very worried that if Freya smelt a human scent, she would abandon the babies….But I knew that domestic rabbits are used to human contact – especially Freya!.
The reason I needed to hold the babies was to check their bellies for size – rabbit babies should have nice, round bellies since if they aren’t full they will starve. This is one of the babies that stayed still long enough for us to get a good pic! By Dex
