New Zealand Kit Weights at 4 Weeks and 8 Weeks Old

Just a drive by posting tonight with the kit weights. That is little Dropper Bunny above.

Serenity’s White Kits at 8 Weeks Old:

Kit 1: 3 lb 12.7 oz
Kit 2: 2 lb 8.7 oz (eye bunny)
Kit 3: 4 lb 10.6 oz
Kit 4: 3 lb 15.6 oz
Kit 5: 4 lb 0.5 oz
Kit 6: 3 lb 11.2 oz

Lola’s Orphaned White Kits at 8 Weeks Old:

Kit 1: 3 lb 5 oz
Kit 2: 3 lb 3 oz
Kit 3: 2 lb 4.4 oz (dropper bunny)
Kit 5: 2 lb 15.9 oz

I am not concerned with any of the 4-week-olds. They all seem to be on track. Dropper bunny is small, but thriving. It is still quite a ways behind everyone else, but is starting to catch up. I am more concerned with eye bunny (the one who had nest box eye when it was little). It has put on only an ounce in the last week and tonight it felt thin. Now we did put the rabbits out on clover one day this week and it is possible she had an issue with it. She does not have diarrhea or anything visible like that, but they did eat a lot of greens that day. I did see her nursing today. Serenity surprisingly allowed that now that half her litter is weaned. Maybe she’s worried about that kit, too. It is possible I mis-weighed her last week, but she has never been one to grow as fast as the others and has always been the smallest all along, so I don’t think so. I hope she starts putting on some weight. Not gaining to that extent is not good.
