i wanted to start showing rabbits so i got a pair of giant american chinchillas. the male is tucker and my female is fiona. ive tried my first breeding with the pair and we lost the whole litter but ive read that the first few can be messy. so i tried again about 2 months later and she has given birth this morning to one singular kit. she killed her last litter so im very cautious to leave the poor fella in their with her and was wondering if shelfing is the best option? along with will she have more? she had 5 her last litter.
