Still no babies

It's been almost three months since our rabbits have been together. They were supposedly a little over six months old. Rabbits this size generally take between six and nine months to reach sexual maturity. This means that pretty soon, we should start to see some evidence of breeding rabbits. Toby is definitely much more interested in the girls, but they don't seem to reciprocate his behavior. I now understand the phrase, "chasing some tail."

The girls are still displaying nesting behavior, including Farina, who is actually old enough to breed. She should be right around ten months old right now. She's ripped out all of this hair to line her hutch, which may be a good sign.
