    They still nurse, they show interest in eating. Today they followed mama out of the cage, out of the coop and into the run. I found two of them on the ramp and the other two were snuggled next to mama in the sun munching on grass.

    They are 3 1/2 weeks old. Let them be or keep them in their rabbit pen?

    I'm not weening, they're still nursing. Just asking if I should prevent them from eating grass outside.

    Thanks, today I saw Belldandy pushing some grass I pulled for her at the babies. So I'm thinking she's really tired of them now. LOL. Guess I'll just keep track of their weight and let mama do what she thinks is best.
