    very cute hun they grow so quickly.

    be careful with fresh food in the hutch as babies under 12 weeks can get bloat from fresh food or a sudden change in there diet.

    i feed lily fresh outside her pen x

    all the food is at the bottom of the hutch, no where near the babies.

    what age do they eat from? im a bit worried now as its a two level hutch, dont have any single ones, i dont want them falling down the ladder :(

    i would put some of mums food near as they will start to nibble when there ready.
    if mum is ok with you handling them, then give them a clean out, keep a chunk of the fur nest but take away the urinated lot as this can cause infection to the babies anyway.
    i would also worry about them falling down, how is mum with you handling them? im wondering how she would react to you moving them down?

    mine are born in a nesting box (a 3ft kennel type thing) and at 2 weeks old i remove them from the box and place them in corner of the pen but TBH i have built up alot of trust with my does so there not worried by my interferance.
