Our Vanilli has taken to crowing. Yes, she's crowing. I've read that in the absence of a rooster, one hen will take up the role and crow. Lordy, lordy, what are we going to do with her?
Yesterday was day 28 for Olivia, so we may have baby rabbits soon. She immediately started taking hay out of her hay bowl and placing it in the nest box, which I had already filled with hay and bedding. When I went to check on her later, she and the cage were a mess. Her wool picks up hay easily, so she had it all over her. I checked this morning for kits, but none yet. The breeder who sold her to me told me she delivered on the 34th day for her, so I'll keep a close watch on her over the next several days. Here she is with hay in her mouth, a sign according to my rabbit book she is getting ready to kindle. Isn't she a cutie!
