My (supposedly) pregnant doe ate all the hay in her nesting box. She would toss it around she and then eat, but she usually just eats it. I don't what to do she hasn't really been nesting, pulling fur, digging a lot, but she'll rearrange things to her liking if I move bedding in the box. I'm soooooooo confused!!!

Patience, my good friend!

She's either pregnant, or she isn't. You'll know whether or not in the next 4 days or so, at which point you can rebreed her if no kits.

Gotta say though - it is a rare doe that eats every scrap of hay out of a nesting box if she is pregnant. You might rebuild the nest with more hay and/or straw, and wait it out until day 35.

The joys and setbacks are all part of raising rabbits - sometimes the does have their own mind about things, or you can't quite 'read' the situation. It's all good; time and patience will give you the necessary hindsight.

Enjoy your rabbits!
