I believe that's called a dewlap, and it's completely normal. :) I read that does often pull fur for their nests from their dewlaps, but that's about all I know about it.
They might not need me; but they might.
I'll let my head be just in sight;
A smile as small as mine might be
Precisely their necessity.

I got pictures of the "haystache" this time around!
Since we had to wean her kits early and she seemed determined to get with the buck I let her. I won't breed them this close together again! I'll admit it was an emotional decision as we'd had some rabbits die that day. Today, Christmas morning, she was very busy doing the haystache. She's 12 days in - which for her is normal/not an indication of false pregnancy. Last pregnancy she got the nest box all ready @ 10-12 days too. :)

I realize this is an old thread, but I just wanted to say that it completely cracked me up when River started carrying around mouthful of hay for her nest. I had no idea that rabbits did that (and, of course, didn't suspect her of being pregnant) but I thought it was hilarious. Glad I was 'thoughtful' enough to buy her a nest box anyway. :P

Haha well, I'm out of luck this time. I didn't think to take a picture of her, but it was too funny. My son and I were amused by the fact that she was so excited to build her nest that she was trying to drag everything she could find into her nest box. We saw her dragging a shoe, a hat, some rope, papers... Whatever she could get to. Rabbits are silly. :roll:

You mean you don't know the rhyme? :shock:

There was an old bunny
Who lived in a shoe
She had so many kits
She didn't know what to do.

I am new to breeding rabbit (had them as pets growing up) and have just witnessed my first Haystaching:). It's adorable! Funny thing was when I stuck my arm in to pet her and get her out to look her over she tried to rip off my jacket sleeves! I also saw her carrying wood chips (clean ones) to her nest from litter box. We are suspecting pseudopregnancy but hoping for babies and it was so fun to see her practice. Those instincts are there even if she uses them at a later time-it's good to see:)
