Hi everyone, new to this forum. We bought a female rabbit and she ended up having babies a week later. It was a surprise to us and we were not ready. We did our best to accommodate her and the new babies, she had 3 and only one survived, he lived to be 4 weeks and yesterday we found him dead in the cage. Their cage is big and clean , no predator can get to them at all, nothing out of the norm, I had held him a couple hours prior for a few seconds all looked good, put fresh hay fresh water a piece of apple . We are absolutely dumbfounded to find him dead, he was, so we thought very healthy, looked to be of a nice weight. Anyone know what could have possibly killed this baby?? I didn't see any blood of any kind , no trauma, and a bit of mucus on his hinny, he did have stool however. We are at a loss, and it's heart breaking. Your opinion would be appreciated! Thank you.
