Accidental mating of sibling rabbits
One of my rabbits has had babies before and I kept a doe and a buck from this litter, however always kept them separate.
Recently, there was an incident where while the buck was running around the garden and my doe managed to get out, they may have been out together for at least 40 minutes. I am pretty sure she is pregnant as she has been nesting and eating a lot more than usual.
However, I am worried about the babies seeing as the mother and father where from the same litter. Do you know if this would effect the babies i.e. kill them or mean they may be born deformed? I have read on the internet that interbreeding a father and daughter or son and mother is ok (I don't know how true that is) however, it is not the case for brothers and sisters.
If you know any information I would be grateful as I am really worried about the mother and babies.
Thanks for your time,
