Babies in the Nestbox
Welcome to the Nestbox!
This page is dedicated to all of my litters that are born. I try to post pictures regularly as the babies grow. It is truly amazing how they are born roughly the length of your pinky finger and grow to be about a pound in 8 weeks!
Baby rabbits are born hairless and with their eyes closed. They depend on the warm nest that the mother built from the fur from her belly and hay to stay warm. In two weeks their eyes will open and they will have a coating of fur over their bodies. From two weeks until about four weeks they get into the excitable wiggly stage where they want to explore and play. You have to be careful because they don't have depth perception at this stage and will run right off the edges of tables. At about five to six weeks you can really starting getting to know the babies personality and they become more interested in interacting with people. Usually around the five week old time they begin eating pellets and hay, by eight weeks old they are completely independent from mom.
