If you can find a place that sells it, you can buy synthetic nesting material made from a cat tails or angora wool (make sure it's chopped up so no long strands can entangle the babies). Vendors at rabbit shows sometimes have them, but this sounds urgent. You could call around your local feed stores and research rabbit supply vendors in your area, or post an ad on craigslist (you may have more luck finding someone who has some angora wool this way).
Does anyone know if, in a desperate situation, you could trim some of of the softer undercoat from a doe and build the nest out of that? Would that be effective?
You don't need to trim it, but on the belly the hair usually comes out pretty easily if the doe hasn't pulled it when she kindles. You can also use dryer lint in a pinch. Pet stores sell nesting material, which you could keep on hand for future use.
