Kits are 24 hours old

Kits are 24 hours old and seem to be doing ok. Sure hope mom is feeding them. I’ll find out soon I guess.

I set an 100 watt IR heat lamp on the top of the cage. Because of found one of the kits on the floor. It was cold and I set him under the lamp to warm him up. Few hour later all the kits were sitting under the lamp. So I left it there. They have a warm spot even if mom is not in the nest box.

I choose to not put the bottom in the nest box because Penelope seems to use the nest box as a litter box. This is not good for the babies. I’ll have to figure something out. But the kits don’t need to get inundated with rabbit piss.
