I am Worried About my Rabbit
Hello, I have a Mini-Rex Doe that is a day past due. She is moving around the hay in her nest box but not pulling fur. I am for sure there is kits in her womb because you can see them kick. She won't put her butt down and she is heavily and quickly breathing. I think she is in labor but i could be wrong. She is always laying on her side. Is my rabbit in labor??? Please help me.
Hey Nicole, sounds like your doe has everything under control. She'll pull her fur when she's ready. Best to just walk away and give her some space for an hour or three. (If I were to guess, I'd wonder if she's in labor but waiting for privacy -- as prey animals, rabbits can hold their litters for a while till they feel safe.)
