Doe had Kittens!

No we don't have a deer at the farm that gave birth to kittens. We have a female rabbit (Doe) who had bunnies (called kits or kittens). The male is a buck. Kind of confusing if you ask me.

Our Doe gave us a sure sign that she was about to deliver by pulling the hair from under her chin to line the nest. This is to keep her kits warm until their own hair grows long. You can see one buried in the hair if you look close. We still don't know how many she's had! Shhh...we don't want to disturb them.
