THE FED-EX BUNS ....


Last summer we got a phone call - "Hurry out to the Fed-Ex office at the airport and get five baby bunnies. Anna will be there with formula. If you don't they will die." No! - Full House! - Can't! - Erk! - Get the cage, I'll drive! Why on earth would Fed-Ex be delivering near-death baby bunnies?
Turns out they were found in a nest in a field there by the Fed-Ex guys! The field had just been mowed and the mom - a domestic free-ranger - had split. Their eyes were just opening.

We had them in first a box and then a pen right square in our dining room all summer. Endless stream of visitors and an endless effort of hand feeding, at first three times a day. They all survived and so did we, but we are not sure how. Now they all have fine homes, you have seen two of them here before, Calypso and Jaxzen.

Been there - done that!

Everybody must be cleaning their fridges and restocking them for a good photo ... since I did not see any today! or - maybe bunny bloggers just don't have a sense of humor or - maybe I'm gone around the bend .. yes, that is it!

Wow aren't they cute! You're so good for taking care of them. When they said to go to Fed Ex, I was thinking the same thing - "Why are Fed Ex delivering BUNNIES?" :D

Cute bunnies!
And regarding the fridge pic... it will come soon!! Can I actually post two pics, one for our "domestic" fridge, one for the bunnies' fridge??

I love your blog! I'm a bunny owner who recently found out her two 'boy' bunnies aren't both boys. : )
We have a house full of bouncing baby bunnies! Our bunnies weren't fed-ex'ed, but they are pretty cute.
I started a blog and I was wondering if you could add us to your blog list? Just a thought. Keep up the great work of taking care of those bunnies!
