Happy Birthday baby bunnies!

We had another litter of rabbits today.  We put the rabbits together 30 days ago with hopes that they'd be born today, Saturday, February 28.  Like clockwork they arrived when they were due. 
There are 6 babies in total.  Two of them are black and 4 are brown.  We had 3 black and 2 brown last time

The doe went through a lot of hay this week.  I don't think she eat much of it at all.  Instead she took every bit she could get to build a nest.  This morning she pulled out a ton of hair.  I don't know how she has any left.  Then she went in her box for a while.  When we went out to check there were babies! 
I find this whole rabbit breeding thing very interesting.  Everyone has heard the saying, "They breed like rabbits."  We have found that rabbits are very eager to try to breed, but they're not so successful at producing offspring.  I've lost track of how many times we have put them together.  It's been at least 5-6 times, maybe more.  This is only our second litter.
