Some of the most memorable times would have to be when we were on our way back from a show and I get a call from my husband asking which rabbit the little black babies belonged to and how many should there be because they were all loose in the barn. Those little boogers were only 11 days old at the time! We have no clue how all 8 managed to get out but they did. 20 minutes later I got home only to find 3 out again so they were moved to a pen that had solid sides to keep them in. They quickly grew and managed to evade the solid sides of the pen and get out again. THEN we moved them to a cage with baby saver wire that they could not squeeze through, or so we thought. When they were 5 weeks old I cam home to find the door to their cage wide open and all of them running about except for 1 who was still in the cage with Tally, the mom. As I am doing a round up with a head check I just kneel to the floor
pat my hand on the ground and call "Babies" gently and I had them flocking to me excited to see me. I scooped them up one or two at a time finding 6 of the missing 7... Crap, where is Tiny... Looking around in the barn I get panicked and start looking outside of the barn wondering if she squeezed past me as I had come in. rushing back into the barn I happen to look down in between the bag of feed and bale of hay and see her looking at me munching happily on her hay. I scooped her up as she nuzzled at me and I put her back in closing the door behind her as all of them rushed the door wanting more attention when all of a sudden, POP! the clasp for the door gave out and 4 of them went tumbling face first out of the cage. Ah ha! So THAT is how they have been getting the door open! I then went ahead and put a bigger, stronger clasp on it. The next night, same thing.... The babies were everywhere loose and they had managed to open that one as well! I tried a number of things to keep those little boogers in the cage but nothing seemed to work, they managed to either break it or bend it enough to get the door open so I decided it was time to split them up. Thankfully once I split the babies up between 5 boys and 3 girls there was no longer enough weight behind the door to pop it open.
And that is the story behind the Houdini BS litter.
