Hi I dunno if any of you could help me I checked the nest today to see if mum had fed them and she come in while I was checking and she stood over the nest for a while and started like sticking her head in the nest I think she might’ve been cleaning the kits? Or moving the fur? So I left her too it and come back out in five she was off the nest but she had a haystashe does this mean she’s feeding them?

That’s so awesome!! Congrats!! My two does will be first time mamas, we are breeding them next month and I’m super excited for it! I believe she was most likely cleaning her babies while they were nursing? But I’m not an expert totally. I’m just getting into a rabbitry. But my guess is probably cleaning them and nursing them.

Haystashe can mean more contractions, possibly more kits. Rabbits have two uterine horns, which means that one batch can be born, then a few more a little later. It doesn't happen all of the time, just a possibility.

Ok I just understood what you meant by haystache. She might be taking more hay to the nest or possibly like JBun said, another litter. Just watch her carefully for the next few days. Hope all goes well!
