    advice needed on new born kits and doe in hot weather

    I had a doe that had nine kits. 3 looked undernourished and once they get left behind, I find they have a hard time fighting for a nipple. What I did was remove four of the biggest and fattest kits for a night. They could stand to miss a meal. This gave the weaker kits a chance to eat...

    How are you keeping your rabbits cool this really hot "summer" so far?

    I'm in South Carolina and we are in the high 90s already. I have 8 cages outside and I have a water mister strung down the sides. It brings Temps down from 97 to 88 in about 5 minutes. Fans alone can't handle the heat and humidity here.

    One baby is not getting enough milk

    I have a doe with 9 kits. All seem to be doing well except one. This little fellow fights for a nipple but is being pushed aside. All babies are about 8 days old.
