Newborn baby rabbit!

Discussion in 'Other Pets & Livestock' started by country freedom, Oct 5, 2008.

  1. My youngest daughter just found a newborn rabbit in with July and her older babies that were born last month.
    Is it ok to wean the older babies now?
    OR--is this an occurance that isn't too rare.

    Can this baby be saved?

    I know why this happened - we weren't able to buy a cage until after the babies were a few weeks old, and we had mama and daddy together too long.

    One of my ancestors was named William Rabbit.

    You can understand why I have 7 children.

    when were they born last month, I know that they tell you to rebreed rabbits that lose a litter quickly. Depending on the age I would get the older buns out ASAP Is there just the 1 baby.
