2nd litter 1 peanut and 1 minilop (Holland) overfeeding

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Keiraash13 » Sat Nov 30, 2019 1:55 pm


Hi there, my doe’s second litter. Her first she breezed through. This one two doa one normal, one peanut, a surviving peanut and one normal. Until one day later when she’s grossly over fed the kit. I’m not sure what action to take. I think I may lose this one as well. Should I remove the nest box? I am very worried he looks as though he will actually pop.

there is not much you can do about this..
the kit feeds until it feels full,
and mom has lots of milk and few kits.. wish you the best
meat-mutt rabbits, a few laying hens.

Thank you! I removed tubby from the nest for 12 hours. Will do this for the next few days after his first feed. I think she is currently going in to feed more than once or twice. Fingers crossed it calms down. Never had this issue before always worry that they aren’t getting fed enough. Tried to get two dies to kindle at the same time but sadly that failed. Guess I’ll let nature do it’s thing!
