One of the early rabbit breedings worked beautifully. Beatrix (yes, Beatrix....I said I thought she was too high strung to breed, but someone wanted a golden bunny....) Anyway, she was bred to Bartholomew- and on Tuesday she delivered nine babies. Usually with a littler this large we give a couple to a doe with a smaller litter- but unfortunately the other two does bred at the same time didn't kindle successfully. So we'll see how well she can feed them all- eight is usually the limit. Interestingly, Beatrix has been quite calm and gentle with both her babies and with me. Some gentle does become quite aggressive after kindling- last year Godiva both growled and tried to attack my hand.
