Well, the plot thickens.
I have another rabbit that had one baby yesterday. I found it dead in her food bowl. She has a large covered area to nest and she it was 5' away from her box. She still felt pregnant. I checked this morning and she had 5 more in her food bowl. One was dead and four are alive. One was in the process of being eaten by her. It's missing a front leg and some flesh. They're all inside my house now and have all eaten and pooped. I have the three separate from the injured one, who's also eaten and pooped. I treated that one with colloidal silver. Please say some prayers.
I bought this female along with about 12 others from a woman. They were all for meat, but I felt sorry for this one because she was a little deformed. I'm beginning to wonder if she's in-bred and doesn't know how to be a mama. When my husband gets home and can watch our son, I'm going to feel her abdomen and see is she's still pregnant. If she is, I'm faced with decision of culling her to save the babies or letting her have them and kill those too. I feel so awful.
Homesteading can be so hard at times.
