Live Report: Holly Hope

She got through the stress from all the fireworks and crackers. There were massive celebration everywhere when the clock struck 12 midnight.

Here’s the live report from Meadow Haven:

(UPDATE) 4.00 p.m. : I woke up from nap to find wiggies!!!

3 kits in total once again. 2 seemed to be alright but 1 seemed to be a little peanut/runt.

Isn't that a lovely nest?

1 Broken Black for sure

This little one reminds me a lot of Holly Hope. It's getting a lot of my attention for sure. I hope it thrive...

8.30 a.m. : More fur in nest box, Holly Hope has bald patches all around and babies kicking mad inside

Nice nest!

Holly Hope x Clark: Gestation Day 29

The rest of the does are feeling the baby vibes. Muffet pulled some fur and Haley was hanging out in the box I provided for her.

Holly Hope is acting quite restless and her vent area easily get soaked with pee because it is getting really heavy at that end. I hope she kindles soon.

Is this a sign that it is near for Holly Hope?

I am really happy that I am able to make such observation of the herd. Thanks to the low number as I can be very familiar with their behavior. I am proud to say that I can easily detect the changes in their behavior. It is indeed very interesting.

I’m off to bed and hope that I’ll see some kits in the nest box tomorrow morning. Please keep the prayers flowing in. Thank you all!

Special Report: Holly Hope Day 28

She’s heavily pregnant & lying on her sides more. Do not really move much when she’s out on her run time.

I could also see that her mid section is bulging out quiet a bit. Could be more than 4 I believe.

I have got a hot water bottle and Vaseline ready. I hope she pops by Sunday.

All Buhnies & Humans fingers and toes crossed in prayer.

Noobie’s Update 3: I do not think it is happening…

I was out with the family the entire day and when I came home, the nest box was still empty.

I really do not think it is going to happen…

There is a reason for everything and maybe Noob’s feeling the pinch of the economy crisis. She’s saving up for rainy days too? LOL…

If there is any kit in there, I hope she stop “baking” them already because the nicest chocolate will turn black with so much “baking”.

Quite positive it is not gonna happen. Let’s look forward to 12th January 2009 for now.

Could she be pregnant there?

By the way, I would love to congratulate Lindsey of 4 Kings Rabbitry for having had a litter. Just got news from her. Very happy for her. Everyone seemed to be having kits except me….sob sob…LOL!

Noobie’s Update 2

It is 9 a.m., 23rd December 2008

Noobie has yet to kindle. I am starting to believe in the possibilities of false pregnancy or reabsorption of kits.

The wait continues…

Noobie’s Update 1

As most of you know, today 22nd December 2008 is Noobie’s due date for kindling. As at 9.38pm there is not sign of kits and Noobie is still chilling on top of her nest box. There is no way I can tell if she is pregnant until she kindles. It is too late to palpate and I have yet to master the skill of palpation.

When she had Holly Hope’s litter she was 2 days late (based on questionable date given). She was on time when Moesha and Charlyz was born. I sure hope that she is taking a little longer to bake those kits in there like how Lindsey had put it.

There is still a little hope in me that she is pregnant. LOL!

I just can’t wait looking into the heavenly sight of white fur covering little wiggly pinkies in the nest box.
