Breeding like rabbits
It’s Easter time and many people have seen baby bunnies in feed stores all over the USA. Most people are wise enough not to get a bunny as a pet unless they are well aware of the care involved in raising a rabbit. Having said that I will not get into preaching the morals of giving baby animals to young children as Easter gifts. What I will do is share some trivia about rabbits.
- The gestation period for rabbits is 31 days.
- Rabbits are fertile and able to breed at the age of 5 months old
- Baby bunnies are usually weaned at the age of 21 days
- A rabbit giving birth is called “kindling”
Now you know why people say “breeding like rabbits”
