The kits stay with me mostly. The momma bunny never allowed us to clip her nails and when I tried to keep the kits with her she stamped on them vigorously and caused them nicks. She is generally gentle when she's feeding them. So, I keep the kits near me and at intervals of 12 hours I bring the mother, put her inside the net box and make sure she can't come out. She kicks the kits at first and settles down after and then starts feeding and grooming them.
The kits are at 13 days now.
One thing though I tried keeping the kits with their mother a number of time with the intention of feeding them the cecotropes. They didnot even try eating those.
Do I need to force feed them?
