Bottle Fed Bunny update, Della Rose and Southern Belle had litters of their own! Quickly and easily, both kindled while I was in the rabbitry and were done in about 5 minutes tops. Della Rose had 10 kits and Southern Belle had a litter of 11! Both are great mothers and their kits are growing normally, now at the age of 6 and 7 weeks old. None were DOA and all kits survived.

Belle and Della topped out at a little over 9 pounds in weight.

I thought it would be good to add these last stats to the bottle-fed bunny chronicles, I admit I was a little nervous about how they would do kindling their own litters but was relieved to have an utter lack of complications.

Ahh, it's good seeing you pop in with an update on RT again, Crazy! I've been keeping up on Facebook, but it's nice having your success chronicled here to give others hope for handraised bunnies. Della and Belle look wonderful, and their kids are adorable! :oops:
