Extra! Extra! Bunnies get some fur!

E's momma bunny, Clover, is showing off her babies at age 2 days.
(today they are 4 days old)
They are getting the feathery soft fur already.
The babies all have fat little bellies. Clover is a very good momma!
The eyes will open at about 2 weeks and the ears will stand up more too.
Look at those little nails.

Doesn't the tail look silly?
We don't tell Clover we think that...
we only tell her how beautiful her babies all are!!
She lets us hold her babies but she always counts them when we are done putting one back in the nest.
The babies make little squeak sounds and they wiggle like Mexican jumping beans all in a pile.
When we hold the babies they suck on our hand and sometimes pee on us too. ~~sorry, just wanted to disclose all :)

This is the baby that will probably be brown and white.
Clover is enjoying her extra goodies in her diet to make her milk even yummier... celery leaves, a tiny bit of carrot and slices of apples. She also eats food pellets and alfalfa hay. More bunny updates to come!!
