Two litters back to back

by Ange

Hi, I bought two female rabbits but found out too late that one was actually male. I removed the male once I had found the nest of kits. They are now just over 4 weeks old and lovely and healthy but I found another nest of babies today! The male had obviously done the deed again before I removed him. I'm not sure what to do. Will they be ok all together for a couple of weeks until the older babies are 6 weeks? They are already eating hay and pellets but are so young.

Those youngsters are old enough to be weaned now. They're eating on their own (I'll bet the doe weaned them herself), so feel free to put the 4-week-olds into their own hutch. Yes, they're young, but they have all the instincts they need to survive just fine. As long as they have access to hay, I don't foresee any problems, healthwise. Good luck!
