    Two litters in one day. I typically try to have two does due on the same day, just in case.

    Anyway, my NZW doe (who needs a name!) was bred with Bo, my gigantic english spot/NZ cross buck. She had 8 kits, 3 black, 5 REW. The smallest of the litter I culled because it wasn't doing very well and I didn't want it to suffer.

    My black Japanese Harlequin Rex doe (Yoshie) was bred to Cody, my full english spot buck. She had six, one silver, one brown, one black, and the other three look like barely marked english spots.

    It's too late to take pictures tonight, especially in the rain, and I work all day tomorrow, but I'll do my best to get pictures posted ASAP! Right now they just look like huge jelly beans with ears and whiskers, lol.

    I always have such a hard time making myself to not cuddle and play with the babies. They are meat rabbits, and will eventually feed my family. I just wish they weren't so darned cute! I don't know if I could ever bring myself to do in a rex kit though.
