Why are the babies dying

This morning The Son went out to feed the bunnies before church, and reported there being another dead baby in Harriet’s clan.  She has lost 6 of her litter.  They are four weeks old now, and we are struggling to understand what the problem is.

Perhaps it is a problem with Harriet’s milk.  When the nest box was in there I was convinced she was jumping on them.  I just don’t know.  If anyone out there has any ideas I sure would like to hear them.  It sure is not pleasant to think you are doing something wrong that is leading to the death of the youngsters.
