They finally have names, after a very long time I have finally decided on Big Bunny being called Rue-Rascal and Little Bunny being called Rogue-Rizzle. They have such fun characters that is was hard to decide but finally after a lot of thought and name ideas from NAC members and watching them play each day it was decided upon.
Both babies are now going outside every day during the day now and are coping with the change to their routine and living arrangements. They are with the other Angora rabbits and get some fresh air and get to experience the sounds and sights of the outside world. They still don’t tend to eat and drink much though during the day while they are out and when they come in each night they seem to eat continuously as well as drink.
Both bunnies are developing well and are both now spending time in a hutch in the outside shed with the other Angora rabbits during the day. They are still not fully acclimatised to being out at night as the temperature is currently a bit too cold especially now I have clipped their top coats. They have adjusted to being outside during the day though well and love the wooden table in their hutch and seem to spend most of the time sitting up on it. I put a all the food they have from their indoor cage in with them as well as some other toys, hay and their litter tray.
Both bunnies are doing well and are currently on holiday and staying away for a week while I have another house bunny to stay. Here is an update on their holiday and how they are developing in size and personality.
