Just curious. How soon after a doe delivers and all kits die can you rebreed her?

Rabbits Can get pregnant right after they give birth. However since she lost all of her kids, I would give her a couple of weeks, and maybe take her to the vet to make sure she’s OK

Try at different times of day. Also i’m not sure if you are in the northern hemisphere, but rabbits also don’t really like to breed in the summer (even if they are inside) you can also cover your doe’s head with a blanket or towel to calm her down so he can mount her. I have a doe I have to do that with, haha

Yup it’s summer for us here in Ohio! I didn’t even think of that!

Just rebreed her. Seriously. sometimes litters die. Sometimes only one or two die. doesn't mean anything is wrong with the doe. If you rebreed her immediately you generally get a larger litter which makes for easier delivery (normally).
