Pictures which follow the various stages in the first few weeks of life for
young kits (from different litters).
Newly Born. Mum creates a nest with hay and her own fur to make it warm and
After a day or two, it is possible to take a peek at the little wriggly, bald,
blind & deaf kits snuggled up together in the nest.
The kits' fur grows in after a few days
9 days. Still blind
eyes start to open around days 10- 12
They start to wander around the hutch once their eyes are open. They start to
nibble on hay and eat tiny amounts of mum's food. They are still feeding off mum
at this stage.
They leave the nest by day 21. They are now nibbling hay and feed freely, and
learning to drink water from the bottle.
1/2 weeks old
4 weeks old. Lionheads start to develop their mane from 4 - 5 weeks of age.
5 weeks old
6 weeks old
7 weeks Old
8 weeks old. Not all lop eared breeds lop their ears straight away, sometimes
they can take longer to drop particularly in cooler weather.
I never sell any of my kits
until they are at least 10 weeks of age. I take mum away from her litter when
they are 8 weeks old. I then split the siblings up into male and female hutches
at 9 weeks of age, and then if they are still with me at 10+ weeks of age, I
split them up into pairs or singles dependant on numbers and how well they are
getting along at this age etc.. Once I am happy that they are coping and
eating well after going through these stages, I will then advertise the kits
that I do not wish to keep, as available for sale.
