    Our five bunny babies died. The mother seemed to be taking care
    of them. She would nurse and clean them. They were warm in our
    kitchen and mom didn't seem stressed at all. Within a few hours
    all 5 died.

    Drumstick and his Mom were not happy at all. Drum was holding back
    a few tears but was quite the little man about it.

    I am so sorry Don. That's such a hard lesson on kids to learn that cute little animals die too. I'm so sorry for ya'll.

    Sorry to hear PC. I've had that happen too with rabbits and with puppies. It's frustrating. Good for you little man for being a tough guy.

    Hardly morning here, I'm just winding down from my 3:00 cow check. [​IMG] Did the mom eat them or kill them? That happened to me once.

    No,Mom didn't do anything to them and was nursing them earlier in the day.

    Speaking of time, I gotta get to work. No more BYC from my van at this new job. [​IMG]

    Man that's too bad. I always wondered how you were online so much. I won't be on at all when I go back to work. I'm a pipe layer and work in the dirt all day.

    omg Im so sorry to hear this.
    That must have been an awful shock for you.
    I wonder what happened, that is the worst part not knowing why.
    Im sure she will have some more and hopefully the weather will be warmer.
