Oh My Word y’all! I do believe that God is brilliant in the area of birth.
He intentionally makes every creature start as a tiny adorable little thing so that everyone falls in complete love with them!
Check out these pictures I gathered over the last week or so of our precious little bunny babies.
Junie B’s babies at 13 days old:
As you will notice, I am a bit partial to this adorable little grey bunny. This one looks just like its mama and its grandmama…I love a colorful baby bunny!
Check out this one of Junie B’s grey one…see its sibling in the back?! It was missing the other three babies…lol
Here is the current situation going on with Junie B and her babies. When her kindle (litter) arrived she had a total of five babies. One of the babies looked to be deformed at his tailbone. Sadly this little one could not move its back legs and I should have put the poor baby out of its misery but it seemed to actually be thriving. (I prayed that God would make this easier for me and please just let the little die on its own.) So I left it alone.
Well, after bed check one evening I found the poor baby had died. So I had another burial to tend to. Most definitely not my favorite part of this homesteading/raising livestock thing. And, yes, I remembered to thank God for listening to my pleas…sigh…it was extremely rough on me to see this and then to make a decision. Just a reminder that God knows our hearts and does His best to do good for us.
This is Junie B’s remaining babies, and all seem to be thriving well!
We are also throughly enjoying Vellie’s babies here in the house. These furry little balls are already 17 days old and oh my word…these things are so stinking cute!
One of the amazing things that the children and I have learned about raising rabbits is that the mama rabbit does not actually teach the babies anything. They simply just know how to clean themselves, learn to drink water, learn to eat the hay and feed…it is truly fascinating to witness God’s abilities as we watch these baby bunnies grow.
This is beyond sweet, at least I think so…one of Vellie’s babies decided that mama needed a bath…watch…
Seriously one of the cutest things we have be blessed to see while raising these little furry balls of fun.
I will be back next week with more baby bunny updates as well as sharing with you about getting our well dug on the property…yep, we are officially one step closer y’all!
See you next time and I hope you enjoy our homesteading adventures.
In His Grace.
