    sorry, I’m new here so I don’t really know what I’m doing, but I’m hoping someone could help me..
    I have two rabbits, Lily (mini lop) and Mabel (mini lop / lion head), which are aged 2 (nearly 3) and 8 months old respectfully.
    I was wondering if 3 years old is too old for her to have her first baby’s and complications that could go wrong.. don’t want her to be in any pain or anything as I couldn’t live with myself knowing I hurt her.

    Tldr; mini lop doe is nearly 3, hasnt had babies.. would it be wise to breed her?
    If not, what are the complications

    Thank you, sorry for it being so long and probably not making sense, it is 4:26am and I’m half asleep lol

    It would be difficult for her to get pregnant with a first litter at almost 3 years of age...not impossible but very unlikely. It would also be a higher risk pregnancy if she did. I wouldn’t advise it.
