    I have a doe that’s just turned 3. She hasn’t been breed in 7 months. I live in Minnesota and winters are so cold and my rabbits stay in the garage in the winter witch keeps adults warm enough but not young kits. I would like to Breed my doe before winter sets in but, we are switching her into a new hutch. Could I breed her in the cage she’s in now and then in like a week move her into the hutch? Or would that be to stressful for a pregnant doe? Thanks so much for reading!

    No problem, I would say. I wouldn't move her in her second half of her pregnancy, or last week, though, just to be sure she has enough time to settle in. I did swap hutches now and then, depending which rabbits needed more space for litters.
