I can’t take the suspense!!!!!

Thirty days ago, we bred our two does, Squeak and Pearl.  We finally realized that Thumper, while a perfectly capable buck, was a little too much of a gentleman to get his job done.  His son Pinto, however, was perfectly capable and also very assertive.

So Pearl and Squeak were both bred to Pinto.  Rabbits have a gestation period of about 30 days.  I believe Pearl delivered her previous litter at 31 days (nearly a year ago).

I checked the nest boxes this morning, and there were no baby bunnies out there yet.  However, when Pearl flopped down to rest, I noticed that her belly seemed to be bulging quite a bit.  Also, Squeak, who normally has this slender, jackrabbit-like figure, wasn’t looking so slender.

I think!  I hope!!!!!

So it looks like — just maybe — the heat sterility is over, and we should have baby bunnies in another day or two!  It’s kinda hard to have rabbit meat when you aren’t getting any rabbits.
