Hi,

my Black Fury at it again, in vain, poor girl, it's a false pregnancy. She dug a nice tunnel under my lilies and roses, filled it with hay, and before I could stick the camara in to make a picture of the nest the tunnel was gone, except for a patch of fresh dirt. She has that habit to seal off her tunnels, also the nestbox entrance always gets stuffed tight with hay.

Funny thing is, with a stache like that she didn't see where she was going (well, running, this rabbit does nothing halfheartedly), when I took a peek at her tunnel she barreled full speed into me. It didn't last long, but it was a frenzy.

I love this rabbit, she is so "all or nothing", great mother, fierce fighter (sigh), fast digger, confident owner of everything, cuddly bun demanding nose rubs...

My elder-doe decided that for litter number three, a haystache was necessary!

The photo is a bit terrible: She refused to sit still. The 'staching was frantic, despite having 9 more days until her kits are expected to arrive. She seems calmer now that she has a nest all prepared. I gave her the next box expecting her to play in it, make a half-finished nest, and then soil it. I thought she'd have a good time, and I'd just have to clean one of the nest boxes (there were clean ones on hand, so no big deal in the end).

Instead she's keeping it immaculate and starting to line it with fur already! I'm starting to wonder if I should leave her masterwork in there with her and let her use that one...

First time mom & nest builder. She did such a great job. After she built her nest she sat on top of the box for hours admiring her work. Her kits are 12 days old now and thriving, couldn't ask for a better mom!
