She started nesting a few days before her due date and I gave her a box right then and there. To my surprise, she actually pulled fur INSIDE the box this time! I started getting hopeful. Maybe she'll finally get it right!
I was in Oregon over her due date at a show. My mom and youngest brother were in charge of watching preggo does and my current babies - on top of feeding and watering and loving on everyone else. On Saturday, February 19th, my mom texted me with Clementine's birth news!
I was so happy to hear that she had SIX kits, all in the nestbox!!! One was DOA, my mom said it was big and stretched. Another one was a peanut. However, we have 4 gorgeous, live kits which is more than I expected from Clemmi! She finally figured it out. She loves her babies. Right now, colors are looking to be chestnuts, an orange, and a broken orange!
Sadly, on day 5, one of the chestnuts passed away. I'm not positive why, but I'm so thankful for the three we have left.
Way to go Clementine! I can't wait to see this babies grow up. The daddy is Finn and these parents are both crazy (hyper and spastic), but also my most friendly and sweet, so I bet these babies will have amazing personalities. My brother's favorite is Clementine, because she always begs for head pets and will put her head under your hand to get them. She's always at the front of the cage and I'm really hoping to have more rabbits in my herd with this stellar personality!
