    My rabbit suddenly died

    I was able to successfully foster the kits! For two days I force fed the kits by gently holding the doe above them, then on the 3rd day I put the kits in together with the doe's own kits and waited. It's been 2 days and the kits seem to be fine. The 4 orphaned kits are healthy and are always...

    My rabbit suddenly died

    Yes, that was what we thought and we have been monitoring the rabbits so far. The male rabbits are kept separately in their own hutch, because they kept fighting each other. While the females are separated because all of them seemed to be pregnant. All 6 does were nesting, 3 have given birth (1...

    My rabbit suddenly died

    Only recently they were given hay, (the last 2 months) previously it was pellets every day with water spinach once in a while.

    My rabbit suddenly died

    Another male rabbit was found dead in his hutch this morning. I don't know the history of the rabbits I have now, because they were saved by my brother in law. The rabbits were kind of an attraction at the tourist trap he was working at. They were abandoned when the place shut down due to covid...

    My rabbit suddenly died

    One more question, Is it a good idea to get a bigger nesting box at the same fostering the kits? Or should I foster the kits first, make sure the mother takes them, then change to a bigger nesting box?

    My rabbit suddenly died

    Can I foster them with kits of different sizes? My other doe who delivered 2 days before has only 2 kits but her kits are twice the size of the kits whose mom who just died. I was told that they are probably overfed and might hamper the growth of their legs. Would it be safe to put all of them...

    My rabbit suddenly died

    Let's say to be on the safe side, I'll continue to force feed the kits. How many times in a day should I feed them?

    My rabbit suddenly died

    I fed her alfalfa hay, but that was what she was not eating. Maybe I should have given her a mix of Timothy and alfalfa? but she did not touch the pellets, so maybe there is another reason why she was not eating.

    My rabbit suddenly died

    I now have 4 kits who are motherless. Another of my rabbit gave birth to 2 kits only. What I did was force fed the 4 kits using her milk. I held her gently over the 4 kits and let them feed for 3 minutes. I've put their nest box next to her cage. Did I do the right thing? I

    My rabbit suddenly died

    My rabbit just delivered 4 kits a week ago. She was healthy and feeding her kits. Yesterday I noticed that she wasn't pooping the normal amount of poop compared to my other rabbit that had also delivered a day before her. She also wasn't eating normally because I could see the hay and pellets...

    Outdoor hutch for multiple rabbits

    I was told that rabbits need companionship, at the same time I'm concerned if they can't bond they will fight. Would it be okay, to put their hutches side by side but separated? Or do they need to touch and snuggle each other?

    Outdoor hutch for multiple rabbits

    Yes, unfortunately I learnt it late. That is why I am now separating each rabbit in its own hutch. The withd of the hutch is 2 feet, Length is 3 feet and the height is 2 feet. My brother in law saved 12 rabbits from abandonment, until we know where we can send these rabbits we are taking care...

    Outdoor hutch for multiple rabbits

    I made an outdoor hutch for my rabbits, separating the males and the does. I found that the males started digging as soon as I put them inside their hutch. Is it okay if I line the hutch flooring with wire mesh then covering them with dirt to prevent them from digging and escaping?
