It's spring in Northern Missouri, and that means new life on the farm...including the rabbits! A wild rabbit decided to give birth to her new babies right in the middle of our lawn! 10 feet from the dog pen. Under the clothesline. In the middle of the back lawn. These are brand new babies...they're still furless! The baby bunnies (in the picture at left) are hidden under the fur-lined nest their Momma made them. She was nowhere in sight when I took the picture, but I'm sure she was watching nearby. My husband is out mowing the lawn this evening, and I told him to be sure and skip that part of the lawn for a while!! Usually, these little bunnies are born in less obvious places..not sure why the Momma decided to choose a very open, visual spot. It will be fun to watch them grow and leave the nest!
