Litter of 8 in a well made nest. Two days later two more showed up. Go figure. Four have been euthanized to make for an easier litter.

I am beyond delighted to tell you that Miss Martha has found a home! This gorgeous silver tipped chocolate steel, from Ascot and Gregory has found a place to call her own. She'll eventually be a free range bunny. She was born Sept. 10, 2020.
Miss Martha is a curious, smart girlie with a very gentle nature. She reminds me so much of her easy-going daddy. She was part of a litter of 10.
Check out Martha's New Digs!
Martha was originally quite shy when she moved, but she has come out of her shell.
In the words of her new person
She is becoming more comfortable....she is out of her pen ...but confined to the one room so far
She is using the litter well
I have been bringing her treats so she is associating me with goodness ....coming towards me when i enter the room !
I thought when I swept she would hide but she was very curious about the broom. Not afraid at all
Here are some pics
She has a whole bedroom with beautiful corner window ...full sun all afternoon
A family from Clinton with three young boys stopped by this evening to pick up two of Ascots girls. Part of a litter of 10, these girls are nicest youngsters. Born on Sept. 10. Momma Ascot was a bit of a clumsy lass, but did well overall raising Gregory's first offspring. Hopefully she'll do even better raising the next group! The litter contained dark chocolate, black, self-chin and steel offspring.
Nine kits born to this rescued doe. They are some unknown colour... though I think two are black. Might be steel, fawn or chestnut in there as well. Nothing white.
A day later we had 10. But we are back down to nine as one kit just didn't thrive. A mix of chocolate and black, some steel, some self.

I have been breeding rabbits for a quite a few years. I thoroughly enjoy them as animals and think they make great pets. I also like to take some of them to rabbit shows to see how they measure up to the standards.
For the BEST rabbit forum I've ever found. Go to Rabbittalk.com. Good for the pet rabbit owner as well as the breeder for meat or show.
