My doe wants to breed more, is she pregnant?

Hi, I bred my rabbit 2 two days ago and she's not acting aggressive but when she saw the male outside of her cage she wanted to breed with him again. I don't know if she's pregnant. What does this mean.

Hmmm...I'm not quite sure what you mean by the doe "wanted" to breed when she saw the buck. Maybe she wanted to breed, but, was she holding her tail high, or was she switching it side to side? The first is aggression; the second is readiness.

You can wait 10 days and then feel her abdomen and see if you can feel the little babies growing. Or, you could take the doe back to the buck and see what happens.
--Either she wasn't bred the first time, but now she's ready so they'll breed, or
--Her hormones will have finally kicked in letting her know she's pregnant. In which case this time she'll be very cranky with the buck.

I would opt for plan A - the ten day wait. No matter what you do, give her a nestbox 28 days from the FIRST breeding, just in case.

Good luck, and let us know how it turns out...
