How much weight should my baby bunnies be gaining each day?
Our lionhead and dwarf lionhead have had 7 bunnies- this is mums first litter and she has been struggling with having 7.
We have one obvious runt we interfered at about 8 days old when they were loosing weight and had her sitting in my lap with the bunnies between my legs and bribed her with food and petting to get her to stay whilst they fed.
This worked for about 5 days but she then became really stressed and agitated and we cannot interfere anymore. The bunnies are now 20 days old but still tiny and only putting on between 1 and 6 grams per day depending on the rabbit.
I would like some advice as to what they should be gaining per day and what if anything I can do to help. Cannot let any die- not after getting them this far.
Thanks for any help
