  •   jjboehm I just had this situation a few weeks ago! My mom and our gardener unearthed a nest while gardening. So cute! We even watched mom come to feed them a few times :) 3d

P.S. Although the hashtag orphan is in this post, these bunnies were most likely kidnapped by people thinking they were doing what was best. "I've found a nest and mom is nowhere to be seen!" Or "there are cats in the neighborhood they'll find them and kill them!"
1. Mom stays away during the day to keep predators away from the nest. She feeds them early in the morning and once more in the evening, so you won't see her near the nest. She's not a bird she doesn't need to sit on them. 2. There is no such thing as a "predator less" environment, and if they've survived in their nest so far, who are you to judge that they cannot survive AT ALL?
If you left your child at a daycare and came at the end of your workday to find that a person had come upon your children and said "there are dangerous people possibly in this area im taking you somewhere I think is safer/to strangers that can raise you" do you think it would be just as well off?
Leave your bunnies alone. It only takes about 5 weeks for bunnies to be sufficiently grown enough to make it on their own. If you have dogs, keep them in another part of the yard or simply on a leash.
If the babies' eyes are closed and they are wandering out of the nest or you find them injured THEN you may call a local rehabilitator to decide what you can do from there #keepthemwild
