Thank you for setting up this thread, Mary, and great to see you stopping by, MsO!

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of an egg, especially so close to hatching - today is day 38 for the first egg, day 35 for the second egg, and day 32 for the third egg. I see the rabbit is still there - and partly frozen to the nest, so hard to get out of the way. Keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well with the remaining eggs.

Both looked OK during the switch at 8:15 am, but not light enough to tell if there was a pip.

I looked in this morning and what I saw was discouraging---the rabbit has been dragged back into the nest and Mom is on top of both rabbit and eggs! Help emo
