This morning I went to feed them all and discovered 2 of the babies had escaped from their hutch. One I managed to catch, the other ran under the gate and through a fence before disappearing from sight. I thought that would be the last I would see of him. For the protection of the other babies, I transfered them into a smaller hutch and let Fudge out with Treacle again.Treacle thought this was great, and promptly mounted poor Fudge. She kept running away, but he would not leave her alone. So he was popped back into the big hutch.
OK they are now all safe together again. Have tried to capture Fudge and put her in with babies, but she is having none of it. Will try again later. Till then I am wondering why on earth I thought rabbits were nice easy pets to deal with.
Added to which Fudge does seem to looking remarkably fat. NOOOOOOOOOO please say she is not pregnant again. No wonder they say breeding like rabbits.
Gave up idea of toast and made cheese sandwiches for lunch.
