How can I get my pregnant doe to trust me?
We just bought two rabbits, a young buck and a year-old doe. Since the breeder didn't have a mature buck for us, he went ahead and bred the doe with one of his bucks so that we could have a litter while our male reached maturity. Our doe is skittish and nervous of us, and I'd like her so trust us and calm down before she has her litter so that I can make sure it all goes well without freaking her out. What can I do??
She will eat parsley and other greens from my hand but definitely does NOT want to be held. She is a New Zealand Giant and is hard to handle without cooperation. It's not like she's biting but she is definitely scared.
