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.
***** Karen Sez ***** 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!
