Vertex or breech presentations are both normal for rabbits. I've seen them get "stuck" in either position.

If this happens once to a doe then are they more at risk of it happening again? I have a Himalayan doe who has had a couple of litters, but this last time she had two born dead at 35 days. It looks like one of them might've been stuck in the birth canal because it was unusually long for a newborn. They both had cuts on them, like maybe she was trying to pull them out. Her litters are normally 5-6 kits, so two is unusual. The doe seemed to be fine and Ibred her again, but now I'm concerned it could happen again. Could she still haveunborn kits still inside her???

It's a bummer when that happens.

I had an American Blue doe that died on her first litter. Her Grand Champion Certificate arrived in the mail a few days after.

Have a better day!

Hi, sorry for the late reply. Were you able to feed it? It will be very tough to hand rear it if you can't find someone with a nursing doe to foster it to. There are recipes out there to feed newborns with. You can search this site also, to get it.
