Congrats on your future niece or nephew! If a dog has discovered the nest, keep your dog away from the area and reconstruct the nest with grasses. So many amazing headpieces on this website! The scalloped edging uses a slip stitch sl st , single crochet sc , double crochet dc and a triple aka treble crochet tc.
Older baby bunnies who are found outside of the nest may not be orphaned or in need of assistance. This is most often the case. Baby cottontails are born without fur but develop a full coat in a week. Their eyes open in 10 days, and in three to four weeks they are weaned. At this age, they may explore the world outside of the nest but return there to sleep.
They are not ignored by the mother but stay with the family group until four or five weeks of age. Also look for bleeding, convulsing, fly larvae, broken limbs; if any, get to a rabbit vet or emergency vet immediately.
He is discovering his world, waiting for mom to return at night when we humans are asleep. They are prey animals, taught to freeze when a predator or human approaches. Call first as often they will come pick up the baby. If after hours, contact a local emergency rabbit vet or rabbit vets found here and also here. The harsh reality is that many of us who care about wild baby bunnies may be contributing to the suffering and death. House cats who roam outside will kill about every other time they go out.
And unlike feral cats who hunt because they are hungry, and kill immediately, house cats maul and torment their prey, sometimes skinning baby bunnies alive.
Cat owners need to provide managed outdoor habitats for their cats — such as windowboxes or pens. Providing a bell on your cat will help warn the wildlife if you cannot keep him inside. Keep your dogs on a leash with you if you see a rabbit nest. Lawn chemicals can produce convulsing death in baby rabbits. According to the Poison Control Center for Animals, lawn applications that contain herbicides are not directly toxic to small animals; but they may make toxic plants more palatable to them and may make the animals sick for a few days.
Products which contain insecticides, such as Dursban or Diazinion, which are added to many lawn products to control fleas or grubs in the lawn, are toxic. Again, make sure you KNOW for sure the mom was killed and the bunnies are abandoned not warm, etc. You will not see the mom. The mom will only come back in the middle of the night to feed her babies.
If the mom was killed, the best thing you can do for a wild orphaned baby bunny is to get in touch with a skilled rehabilitator. In the meantime, call your local humane society or animal control and one of these vets for a wildlife referral: Remember with wild bunnies, the mom only comes back at night to call and feed him once or so for 5 mins; please put him back for her if just found and healthy.
She leaves them alone between feedings. Wild rabbits NEED a skilled wildlife rehabber. You should not feed at home or the chances of their surviving is extremely low!
These feedings are NOT meant to take place of an actual rehabber, but for someone only who may live too far from a rehabber and is faced with a wild mother, killed, for example.
It is impossible over the Internet to see your particular rabbit, so this is only approximate. Add a pinch of acidophilus aka Probiotic to the formula to promote healthy gut flora. Formulas vary depending on region. Avoid Esbilac and any puppy formulas! Feed only with the bunny sitting UPRIGHT , and point syringe down towards bottom or side of mouth, so if too much comes out, the baby does not aspirate. At first, they may only take a few drops at one feeding until they are not stressed and used to this.
Newborn babies if eyes closed all need to be stimulated to urinate and defecate prior to or following feeding until their eyes open.
Except Jackrabbits do not. Domestic eyes open at about 10 days of age. Start introducing them to timothy and oat hay, pellets and water always add fresh greens for wild ones. Half this at most. These feedings are NOT meant to take place of an actual rehabber, but for someone who may live too far from a rehabber and is faced with a wild mother, killed, for example.
Please call your humane society or these contacts to locate a rehabber near you: I am having a problem with the sizing guide you use. When I use your guide the hats are usually too small for the age and have to bump up the size and use larger hooks.
Boa tarde a amiga. Um ótimo final de semana é o que desejo a você. I love your designs. I'm excited to be able to try this one out… hopefully soon!
You also make me want to try out Vanna's Choice yarn. I've seen it in Hobby Lobby, but I've never picked it up to try it out. Maybe this weekend I'll pick some up to work on a rabbit for my new niece or nephew that is on the way!
Thanks for all you do! Just completed my bunny hat and diaper cover but sadly, the diaper cover didn't fit my "big" little one! Hi, thank you for your tutorial. The only problem I have with this is I used a 5.
Lol, she enjoyed it so did I. I am struggling to find black button so poor bunny has no eyes yet. This is an awesome pattern. The tips you included made it very easy to crochet these up in an afternoon. I made them for my six month old twin girls for their first Easter and their six month pictures.
The sizes worked really well. I tried many patterns before this one, and this is definitely a keeper. Thank you so much!
Loved the pattern, I used a bit of a bulky yarn for it but just decreased a few rows and it worked perfect. Turned out very cute. Pattern was easy to follow as well…thank you for sharing! Linked to the pattern this morning on Moogly. Just love this pattern can't wait to make it thanks so much.. If you do a Google search for Magic Ring, you can find instructions. Here's the page I used. This is so cute. I saw this pattern yesterday and I made it right away. Thank you so much, I love your blog!!
I absulutely hav fallen in luv with all your patterns. This hat is so stinkin' cute. It turned out so cute. I was planning to put on a face, but it's so hard to find the right buttons.
Hi, I just made a hat using this pattern in the "child" size… I'm wondering what size that is supposed to fit normally? I just have to tell you— every stinkin' time I see something that I think will KILL me with cuteness, it's one of your projects! They are absolutely adorable and very original! And let's not forget that you have the best crochet tutorials I've ever seen. I can't wait to explore the rest of your blog!

Ears way to big Id say do a size 3. Maybe I am over thinking or missing something but the stitch count is 22 at the end of the first round and then 33 at end of second but I am only getting 31 DC? I am sooo new at this. Would the base of this hat work fine to make toddler size Minnie Mouse hat?
I made the Minnie mouse hat for my new grandaughter, but her sister just turned 2 and I need 1 for her also.
This is my 1st of any clothing. Ty for the patterns, My minnie mouse hat is great,thanks to you. No clue what I am doing wrong, but following the pattern for months, I have a hat that will fit my head? This is my third attempt at making it and I end up with the same thing each time. I think that maybe your hook gauge is too big for this pattern.
Another good tip is to count your stitches. Make sure you read the pattern carefully. I have never had this problem with her patterns so there is something wrong with your sizing. I hope that this is helpful for you. I'll be enchanted to greatly help due to what I've learnt from here.
