I heard that ACV is good to give to help with more receptiveness for breeding. I know it’s also a good health benefit too. But how long should I use ACV before breeding so my buck and doe are willing? One week? Five days? Three days? What do you think?

How much ACV should I put in their water?

What other benefits does ACV have for rabbits? I heard it can increase female kits in a litter, but I’d have to give the ACV while she’s pregnant, right?

We tried ACV but didn’t find it really helped all that much. Others say differently. Using the cycle of the moon is also said to help make rabbits more receptive to breeding as well as influence the ratio of does to bucks in a litter. A study was even done that appears to confirm it - https://csef.usc.edu/History/2012/Projects/J1299.pdf

Interesting! Thanks for the extra info! I never knew that, I find that really interesting though.
