My kids love hands-on learning! So what better way than to learn responsibility, compassion and a little bit of science than to experience hatching chicken eggs and birth and growth of baby bunny?!? While this experience has been a fun one for them, they also experienced how hard it is when something you love and is so little is taken from you. Our first litter of kits passed away due to a young first time doe. And our first clutch of eggs was not fertile and did not hatch. It’s was very hard to watch my kids be so upset, especially as we had two of our baby rabbits die in our hands as we desperately tried to bottle feed them. However, they came out more understanding and a bit stronger, both making this second attempt that much more rewarding!
