We lost both Lop babies today.  So Sad!  Also one of the Silkies got caught under the feed dish and was trampled by it's brooder box mates.  She is still alive and living in a box on the porch.  She's alert but we're not sure how she'll fair through the night.  I hope she survives as Boy has given her a really cute name...which is Professor Chicken.

Monday Update: Professor Chicken did not make it, nor did one of our Americauna's in the moveable coop.  And by midmorning we had lost the runt from the weaned bunnies (In the pictures a few days ago), and the wild rabbit, Flash.  SIGH.

Hopefully a cheerier post tomorrow!

I guess I just don't understand all the death. I suppose it is normal and the way God planned life. Thus the reason that rabbits have 13 to a litter. And I suppose that when you have multiple upon multiple like you do then you are going to experience it to a greater degree. I pray for your family that you not get discouraged by this natural cycle of life.
Do you know why some are dying? Like the runt of the weened litter? I'm just curious if there are reasons or if it just happens.
