Hi everyone. I am new to this forum and seeking advice. Its been nearly four weeks now since I purchased my beautiful mini lop bunny. She's 6 months old and 4-5 days ago (unsure on exact day as you couldn't tell there were babies as they were buried underneath hay and mums fur - we thought she was having a phantom pregnancy, I only found out when I was cleaning her hutch out and I know they were born 4-5 days ago as she hadn't been in her indoor run for 2 days i left her in her hutch for two days peacefully so could have been born on either day) anyways.. yes I noticed the babies.. this is her first litter (I am presuming as she's so young) I haven't seen nor checked the babies yet as there is so much conflicting advice on the internet. I keep worrying about the babies as I want them to thrive. I know they are still alive due to all the movement, whenever I open the hutch in the mornings they are moving quite a lot and you can see the hay moving up and down. Sometimes they are quieter than usual but there's always slight movement. I have been checking on mum three times per day making sure her water is topped up and making sure she has plenty of food. She's eating kale and lots of pellets. She seems to be eating a lot at the moment.. and drinking a lot through the night too. Whenever I open the hutch Mum seems to be a bit protective, not with me though, she is fine with me and my partner but will go past us bopping her head over the hutch in all areas as if she is checking for danger beyond us and on the internet it also says Mum won't lay with her babies, but i have caught her a couple of times lain next to her babies and she is going to the toilet sometimes not far from them so i know she's keeping an eye on them. And she also once ran straight to her nest when I opened the hutch so she seems to be protective over them. I give her some love, strokes and then I leave her in peace. She is in the dining room and with how deep their nest is and all of Mum's fur I think babies are warm enough. I also noticed in the mornings there will be a hole in the nest and by night Mum has re-covered the holes. I really hope these are all good signs and its a good sign babies are still showing signs of movement. I can't help worrying due to all the horror stories on the net! I want her babies to thrive and stay well. We won't be able to keep them all but I am hoping to keep one if there are any girls and will most definitely not be giving them away to homes I didn't feel secure with! I want them to go onto have healthy and happy lives. I am posting to ask if I am doing the right thing? A lot of people are telling me to leave well alone which I have and I am also glad I left her in her hutch for 2 days before she gave birth .. but then some people are saying to check on the babies.. but I don't want to disturb them and stress Mum out. I really don't want to lose her babies. So am i doing the right thing? And at what age are babies beginning to slowly come out of the danger zone? I am secretly hoping this is their 5th day of life because it means we're one step closer to health and vitality! Thanks for listening.
