New Litter Has Arrived. November 5th, 2012

Our Lynx buck and Broken Fawn doe had their first litter on November 5th around 7:15 in the morning. I had checked on the doe earlier in the morning and she had done nothing more than dig a little hole in the hay in anticipation of the upcoming kits. Not a spot of fur had been pulled. With one last check before leaving for the day we found her in the process of kindling and were lucky enough to have the camera nearby.

Most of our rabbits give birth at night or in the wee hours of the morning so being there while it was happening was a bit of a surprise. She did a fantastic job with her first litter.
