Default Tiniest Baby bunnies ever: 5 of them!

I got these tiny tykes back on May 3rd. I was hoping that maybe one would survive, but I really didn't think any would because they were sooooooooooooo young and soooooooooooooo tiny. The birth weight of bunnies is 30-35 grams and these little guys were only 22-26 grams and were one day old. Here are some pictures of them:




Them next to a sharpe marker so you can see how tiny they are






Them next to a normal sized bunny the same age. You can see how small they are for their age.




Eyes open

2 died right before they opened their eyes after getting soft poop, but the other 3 are still alive and now weigh in at 67 grams (he is still struggling a little, but doing better), 107 grams, and 109 grams.

Some pictures of the three from last week:




Another size comparison between the two regular sized bunnies and 2 of the tiny tinies

Pictures of the tiny tinies from Friday:










This is the littlest one that was having issues. I don't know why his fur was so sparse on his head, but it seems to be filling in more now



And pictures of the tiny guys from today (they sure do grow fast ):
