New Life

Yesterday, Sylvia, one of the rabbits I bought at the great Cycling Tour to Attigny gave birth to 8 young. It was a bit of a surprise, since we did think that both females were too young to bear. They spent some time together with the male, Porthos, and he knew it better and didn't wait to do his job.

The other female, Zora, gave birth a week ago, but the young died shortly after.
Now we are hoping that Sylvias kindergarten will grow up well.

The photos don't show much yet. The young are burried in a nest of straw and hair from their mother.

Today, I also finished the hard to Bear comic! yay, now I can go back working on the film! Nevertheless, it was a lot of fun doing this story.

Oh mei! Junge Hasen sind ja so knuddelig und weich, und auch furchtbar zart. Ich hoffe sie überleben und auch die Mutter kommt gut über ihre erste Geburt weg.
