Baby Bunnies

The other day when Hubby was cutting grass, he stopped and quickly came in the house.  He was in a hurry (if you know Hubby, he's NEVER in a hurry) and had a somewhat panicked look on his face.

"Quick, I ran over a rabbit's nest!  There are baby bunnies in the nest!," he spouted out.  "What do I need to do?"

I wasn't sure.  Together we went back up to where he had run over the nest.  There Hubby uncovered a nest with four tiny baby rabbits...

They were all huddled together and it was hard to tell where one started and one ended.  But you could see their cute little ears!  Hubby said two were outside the nest just after he noticed it.  He put them back in the nest when he came and got me.

We decided to cover the nest back up and wait.  If the mother rabbit was still around, she would be back and would move them.  If she didn't come back, we decided that we would try to raise them.  

We left the nest and waited.  Not long after we left, it started to rain.  I found a large pot and placed it over the nest but with a way for Mama rabbit to get in.  We just waited again and hoped for the best.

As evening set in, Hubby came back with news.  Two of the baby rabbits were gone but two were still in the nest.  The two in the nest just didn't make it.  Mama rabbit, we hope, has the two surviving babies and is raising them to be full grown rabbits!

Happy Earth Day!

  1. Those are tiny bunnies! We had some in our barn under some hay, we left the hay there in the winter for more protection. I hope the others made it!
