Baby rabbit are born in a nest of fur that comes from the mother’s dew lap (a fold of skin under her chin.) A baby rabbit is called a kit. Baby rabbits are born deaf, hairless and with their eyes closed. The kits will have noticeable hair in just a couple days. Their eyes will open around 10 days old. While they are still nursing from their mother at around three weeks of age, they also start nibbling on pellets. In fact the Popcorn Gang now hangs out under mama’s food dish all day waiting for her to drop stuff!!! Different people have different views on when to wean kits. We plan to keep the Popcorn Gang with their mother till they are 8 weeks old as long as Graycie doen’t loose her mind! I mean come on, five babies could make any mama nuts!!!
