If you just put the doe in with the buck and leave her for a while, write down the date you first put them together. The doe generally gives birth a month later, about 31 days, so the nestbox goes in three days before the due date, or about the 28th day after breeding.s long as you write down the date so that you remember. Give her a nestbox three days beforehand. And then enjoy the little ones should they arrive.
Very nice!Okay , so here are the improvements that I made to my rabbits cage . What do y’all think? Am I ready to breed again? I’m anxious to have babies!! But I do not want to be to pushy that I regret it!!
Not late at all if you know when your rabbit kindles. Better than wasting a bunch of hay repeatedly because they just peed and pooped in it. Mine kindle day 31 and 32, they get their boxes day 28 or else they just soil it all instead of building a nest.Three days is a little late
Never leave your doe and buck in the same cage unattended. They can end up fighting and she can even castrate him, then you wouldn’t be able to breed. Obviously, this depends on rabbit temperament, but I’d never risk leaving mine alone together. If they don’t breed within 30 mins, take out and try again later.I am breeding now, it seems the female will not lift her butt up and let him in. Is this normal, or is this something that I need to be concerned with? Should I just leave them be for a couple of days and hope for the best? Or should I watch and make sure he gets it in there? What is the normal thing to do?
