Baby Rabbits -- Week 3

All of the baby rabbits now have their eyes open.  They started opening their eyes when they were about 14 days old.  They still spend most of their time sleeping.  Once in a while they'll get up and explore the hutch. 
They've started to show an interest in the hay.  I don't know how much of it they are actually eating.  My wife said she saw one of them chewing and chewing and the piece of hay didn't get any shorter.
I don't know if the momma rabbit is still nursing them or not.  They try to climb under her and she gets annoyed and promptly hops away.  She was very protective of them when they were first born.  Now she acts like she's ready for them to go.
I spent several minutes watching them today.  They sure are entertaining.
3 weeks old.
