So my lionhead rabbit just had her first litter of 3 last friday. All seemed fine...pulled TONS of hair and when checked on often were always huddled up nice and warm. Today temps were in the 50's overnight and low 60's daytime so I'm not thinking it's too cold but.... When I went out to check on them this afternoon they were in the nest box underneath the mound of hair but spread out away from each other and all were cold...2 dead (no movement at all). The third was also cold but still moving so I imediately warmed it up in my shirt and it perked back up. The other 2 were not stiff yet but after checking them over for a minute or two I saw NO movement or signs of life at all so I went ahead and tossed them into our woods behind the house. Then come in to see if I can find a reason for losing 2 kits after 5 days and one of the sites said not to toss out cold kits...that they can sometimes come back if warmed back up? So not only am I frustrated that I lost those 2 but that I was so quick to toss them if there was any possibility they were not actually dead. ugh. Luckily I have another bunny (Holland Lop) that has a litter 1 day older than the Lionhead so I put the remaining baby in with hers and so far so good. (although it looks a bit skinny.) I'm wondering if the mom just wasn't feeding them the past couple of days? Just sad. I hate when I think there might have been something I could have done. ok...vent over. =0) We'll try her again in a couple of weeks.
