This week I caught my French Angora doe gathering nestbuilding materials and she was confined to a bunny maternity ward. She had open access to the run, pretty much since I got her this spring, so she was not happy about the change.
Her husband had to find a new home as they are not good with kids. So I finally picked up and built the indoor rabbit cages I’ve been planning. I’ll need them soon to grow out meat litters as well.
And sure enough, Fluffy McPuffersons and Mittens (both blue French Angoras), had a single kit in the wee hours this morning. So far it looks healthy and happy. Mama is still as friendly as can be and didn’t mind me greeting the new arrival or petting her. Now to see how well she does raising the little guy.
So there it is…the first baby born on my little urban homestead :)
