This has happened to me before! it's why I don't put bowls in the hutch anymore!


I mentioned this in another thread, but my doe tried to carry a shoe into her nest. :roll:

Silly rabbits.

Silly rabbits.......

Ok, I don't think mini lops like having babies. I don't think they get pregnant, I think they just like to make us think they are pregnant. Put on a good show, and then laugh at us when we continually check on them and never find any kits.

I so appreciate the does who have them while I am out there feeding or cleaning. However 95% of them keep me up all night checking on them...lol

Nothing yet, huh? What day is she on?

Some does go a little longer in the cooler months. I've also seen them go longer with smaller litters.

Hopefully you will have popples soon! :good-luck:

Today is day 31, she was bred on February 12.

And she was bred quite well I hope. The buck, Turbo, had some stamina. 4 fall offs in about 10 minutes.

I hope so. I might have to get out the long handled needle nose pliers and pull the things out.

I've got mini lop babies!!!!!!

It's about time. When I went to bed last night, still nothing. She hadn't pulled any fur since the small amount she pulled Friday. I just got up and went out to check on her, wow!!!!!
She has carpet, never seen a rabbit pull so much fur. But she was standing up in the nest box so i couldn't count any kits, she may still be having them, but i did see at least one or two under her. I will try to count them after work tonight.

-- Mon Mar 16, 2015 4:35 am --

Ok, update already, my wife just checked on her, said she was out of the nest.
I ran out to look. I didn't get in the nest box at all, just looked from the top, but it looks like, I think, I saw 5, 3 brokens, and 2 solids.

You're right. I hadn't noticed this thread until this morning's announcement. (while you no doubt were still in bed) :nana: :rainprf:

:hmm: Maybe we should start doing pools...date and time blocks for expectant mommas. A dollar a square with 50% payout and half to the breeder.
