Surprise!

She thought she was losing her mind. 

You may recall that several weeks ago, the rabbits were a bit on the escapey side. That’s important to remember. 

Last night while I was at work, the girlfriend was counting the bunnies from the window. All present and accounted for. Plus an extra. What.

Sure she was seeing things, she went down and investigated the blue shelter she had seen it hop into. She had noticed it was full of straw a week ago and assumed I’d done it. 

Try to remember that all our bunnies are white. The girls have brown ears and noses. That looks… grey… 

Yeah, that’s grey. Seems the girl who was out in the woods longest had a one night stand and brought back a souvenir!

Any worries we had about the rabbits raising babies on their own are gone. They raised these two for at least a week without us even knowing! Their eyes are open.

Now for the big question. Who’s the daddy? Or rather, what’s the daddy? If this was a wild rabbit, then these two kits are like mules. Strong, but sterile. If he was a feral domestic rabbit, then we now have a new color option and wider gene pool. 

The only thing I can think to do is contact our agricultural extension office and ask if they can determine species. Any other ideas? 

In the meantime, two extra bunnies! And we’ve sold five already. May or may not sell more. Might process the ones we have left. We shall see!
