Thought this might be good for educational purposes. My Dutch Clementine just gave birth about 10 minutes ago. I filmed the first 2 kits. The second one I noticed was breach, and I was about to reach over and pull it out and then one big push and it was on the ground so, I guess she didn't need me.

Ignore the peeping in the background...my guest room has been converted into a nursery....for rabbits and baby chicks.

I'll say it's graphic because for one it's a rabbit giving birth and any birth can't be pretty , and rabbits do eat placenta which inevitably was caught on film also.

i'm sorry to hear it, but it's part of raising bunnies I suppose.

She's still in there doing her thing, she ws doing so well I figured she'd earned some privacy.

Right now there's just two and she's in there getting a drink. She could have more later or she could be done. It's unusual for my Dutch to just have 2, usually I get at least 4-5. I guess we'll have to wait until later for that info.

That's a great video, thanks for posting it Jesse!

If it's okay with you, do you think Peg and I could use this in an article in the rabbitry section? I'm sure it would fit in great with what ideas we have for breeding/pregnancy articles.
