Stop the Press!
Look what I just found at the side of the yard! Deacon was no where to be seen for awhile and when I went to investigate I found these poor babies. Deacon has disturbed the nest and the babies were scattered around so I gathered them up and they're nestled in a tea towel inside a popcorn bowl. When baby bunnies have a white spot on top of their head that's an indication that they still need their mother, once it disappears you can leave them on their own. When they've warmed up I'm going to put them back and make sure Deacon is tied up when out back for at least a week and we'll see how things go. The Heiress has taken babies out of nests and cuddled them and put them back before and Mum always continues to care for them so no worries there. I'll have to make sure that Farmer McGregor next door doesn't get a hint of this!
