Our Rabbit – Getting Ready for Birth

Well, I was able to catch our bunny as she prepared her nest!  We woke up yesterday and she was busy building a nest in her nest box.  We put the nest box in a day earlier but she didn’t do anything to it.  I also gave her straw/hay to build with, but all she did was eat it!  But what a difference 24 hours makes…because now she’s busy building her nest.  She was trying hard to build with the aspen chips that were in her crate (since she had already eaten the straw).  I quickly gave her some more straw and she put it to good use.

All that’s left now is for her to “pull her fur” and line her nest with her soft fur.

Here is a video of her at work!
