My doe bunny one day was going crazy putting together a nest in her cage. We were worried because we hadn't put a nesting box in yet, so we put one in. When we put it in, we had messed up her original nest. She hasn't made a new nest yet, and I am worried if she won't make a new one because we messed up her old one.
Will she make a new nest? If not, what should we do? ***** Karen Sez *****
You weren't ready with a nest box, because the doe was building the nest really early, right?
Can't be positive, but it sure sounds like your doe is actually in the middle of a false pregnancy. That means that your doe by now has probably forgotten she ever needed a nest. But for the record, does know very well how to repair a nest that has been messed up. If she needs it, she'll fix it.
I'm just thinking she probably no longer is interesting in nest-building.
However, you should probably stick to the plan - leave the nest in the cage until day 31 comes and goes. (I might be wrong and she's pregnant after all!) Wait till day 35 - if no babies, then rebreed the doe.
