    Well, they are starting to get cut, now. They have developed ears and fur.


    This is runt. the smallest one. I wish I could place it next to another oneso you can see the difference in their sizes. I didn't think it would survive, but it is just as lively as the rest, just minuscule.

    This is the same color only a bigger one. hard to see the difference, though.

    This is a little hard to see as it is black. They are so hard to get pictures of as they are so lively once I pick one out of the nest.

    I'm so enjoying this topic and all your photographs. Who could possibly think the babies are anything but utterly adorable.

    Yes, Barb, A note. I needed to write that I am supposed to visit someone on Thursday for coffee and needed to remind me to write it down when I got home from church today. It will wash off....eventually.

    Eileen, They are getting pretty stinkin' cute.

    Cheryl, I knew it would happen, but I have never seen baby bunnies before and was very surprised as to what they resembled...Almost all hairless and fused eye babies are rather ......well, is the word ugly too harsh? they sure aren't cute at that stage anyway.

    Awww... I'd love to take one home. But not such a good idea with Sassy Marie ruling the homestead.
    You did a great job of keeping them alive during that really cold spell.

    The bunnies are growing. They are soooo stinkin' cute, too. I have to get rid of them, but I will pet them and hold them until then.

    they sure grow fast. Happy to hear that they're surviving that brutal cold weather you're getting.

    Donna, They make FABULOUS fertilizer for the garden. That is the only reason I keep them. Not because I need another project.

    Cheryl, they did grow really fast and I can't believe they all made it and are so healthy.

    Those thumper's have really grown like weeds. How's the feeding bill for those little furries?
