Indy - contact your local farm store and ask who they get their bunnies from each spring, that should point you in the direction of the local breeders/keepers.

She doesn't eat her own feces, just that of every other animal she can find. Cat and horse poop are especially delicious, as far as she's concerned. Blech!!!

Then she'll drink a quantity of water, and come drooling over to me for a kiss. GET AWAAAYYY!!!!
haha, my dog tends to roll in it first, to attract the laaadies (apparently)

The bunny is so sweet though, lucky to be still with us :) hope she does well, love her little 'star' x

Themacpack, oh, brilliant idea, thanks so much! I will make calls now!

Speedy, actually all wild cottontails have that "star/blaze" when they first fur out. It's called their nursing blaze, and it goes away after they wean and stop nursing - part of how you can gauge age on a baby, by how "long" it is. Weird, huh?

She's still doing really well! Moving around a lot more, I let her out of her box to run around in my closet for a few minutes twice a day right now. She's being fed 3 times a day, morning noon, and night, and I don't feed her overnight. She's doubled weight since I've found her, she weighs 1.4 ounces now!

Just thought I'd take a few new pics of the lil thing when I went to feed her this morning.



(Then she realized I was there to feed her and came toddling over to me)



Please excuse my fingernails *lol* I rarely wear nail polish, and have a bad habit of just letting it wear off when I do rather than bothering to remove it



(she didn't pee, on my leg there, she just dribbles a little when she eats. And yes I'm in sweats, it's morning still!)

Took the words right out of my mouth Speed Racer! It's just precious, and I'm really glad things are going well so far. Keep up that good work, little bunny!

yeah slightly weird lol! I didnt know that. I've seen lots of baby bunnies around at the moment but they look older and bigger than her, maybe that's why I've never seen it. She's doing really well though, double the weight she was determined!

Yearling
We found a baby bunny last year in our front yard. Looked like mom had been hit by a car nearby, and this was the only baby to be found. We took it in. It stayed in my room in a box with a heating pad and blanket. I fed it with a syringe, even waking up at night to feed it. It got better very quickly, but then we had to go to Minnesota to see my grandparents and we couldn't leave it home alone. So we put it in a tiny pet carrier and it came with us. We stopped at times along the way so we could let him out to hop around. But I think the trip was too much for him because 2 days after the trip, he took a turn for the worst and ended up dying. :'( Not going to lie... I cried.

Anyways.. There's my story of my baby bunny.
