Her behavior was really weird. I am pretty sure she was pregnant at one point - and then reabsorbed her babies. That isn't common, but it does happen. And it would explain why she acted SO pregnant - yet no babies came. I will be removing her nest tomorrow.
Thank you for all your prayers, comments and concerns. I really appreciate knowing that you are all with me in this.
In other news....
We have bred Gracie and Sir Lancelot! However, she wasn't very receptive so I'm not positive this will result in a pregnancy. We will know in a couple weeks. She nests early when she's pregnant, so if she doesn't, we know it didn't work out. I'm going to try again later. I think the both of them are just pretty tired from this heat. Gracie and Lance can only produce rabbits over 4lbs. They are both 4lbs 2oz. Because of this, I will not be keeping any, and they will all be sold. I don't want to keep more "brood" animals, but show-quality rabbits that will increase the quality of my herd as a whole. These babies will make great 4-H, breeding (they have great lines), or pet rabbits, but cannot be shown. Lance and Gracie are like big ol' teddy bears! I love the bigger bunnies for this reason; they are so much more snuggly! If we had a successful "take", Gracie is due May 12.
Please keep praying that I might have 2 successful litters on the way soon (Cinnamon has not been bred yet but will be soon!)!
