A rather odd baby bunny

default A rather odd baby bunny

Post by GB on 11th November 2012, 3:03 am

Our Blue had her first litter on the wire but when we found them they were still alive and kicking, despite being very cold so I scooped them up and gave two of my kids four each to hold against their bellies to warm tehm up while I made a quick nest for them.

When I was handing htem over I found lots of ants on a few so picked them off. They were a biting but not stinging ant.

Then, a couple of days later, the entire litter got soaked through due to a watering accident.

They are all still alive but one of them looks really strange. Its hind quarters are thin and the fur is all wrinkly and its now half the size of the others.







Any ideas on why it looks so different to its siblings?

I know nothing about rabbits, GB. Do you belong to a rabbit keepers' forum? I'm sure they would have any amount of advice for you.

I do indeed but I find that the wider I can spread my questions, the better range of answers I get. And *wispers* I can only post pictures here Embarassed

My sense of logic tells me that its fur is wrinkly because it has lost weight on its back end, so the skin is in little folds, being too big for the bone and muscle underneath.
The others, despite their difficult start in life, look bonny, which suggests that the wee one has something wrong with it. Do you know if it is eating and pooing?

Good news! Very Happy

It may be silly but I love it when a weakling makes it! Even with popples and kits and rabbits galore, we all still love the under-bunny Laughing
