Lowri - We had an interesting day today. TM went to take a close look at our bunnies. If you remember, TM and PR bought four bunnies a while ago. They got three females and a male. PR had built a rabbit hutch with three separate pens. TM put a female in each cage and the male in with one of them.
We figured it would be about now that the one female would be showing signs of imminent baby-bunny-bearing. TM has been checking her for several weeks now. Today, she took the male out of the cage and put him in the middle cage with a different female. Imagine her surprise when the female immediately began chasing the male and bred it.
Okay...the bunny in the middle cage was/is a male and the bunny TM was told was a male was/is a female. TM continued to watch in surprise. LOTS of wild bunny sex was going on. She finally pulled out the bunnies and checked. Yup, the actions were appropriate. She then pulled out the third female and checked her. Oops - another male. She checked out the first bunny - who she thought was pregnant. She was relieved to see it was indeed a female - but obviously NOT pregnant as she had been co-habbing with a female.
TM went ahead and moved the bunnies around so both male bunnies were happy. We should have baby bunnies in about 31 days.
Then PR and TM put one of the male bunnies in the freezer. I bet it is cold there! TM said we couldn't use two male bunnies.
TM - Wah, wa wa wa wah.
Lowri - Ohhhhhhh, puppy food. I am liking this!
