hello everyone i am needing some tips.
my mini lop oreo is 8 months old and i breed her with a 1 year old buck also minlop, on the 15th of august i saw them do 5 fall offs.
it is now the 21st of september and still no babys.
ive tried rebreeding as its been a really long time but everytime the buck trys to mate she gets really grumpy and growls at him
theres been no nest but i was looking at the floor 3 days ago there was red stuff on the hay but no babies ive checked everywhere

the doe and buck live togethor as they are pets do you thinks this could be causing her not to go into labor

There's really no way to know what's going on insider her unless a vet were to do an ultrasound. It's pretty late for there still to be a chance for the kits to be born alive, though not completely impossible. It could be she's retained them, or she had them and they had died and she cleaned up and ate the dead kits. If you're concerned there's a problem with her, all I can say to do is take her to an experienced rabbit vet for an ultrasound.

One of my does rather consistantly kindles at day 34 or 35, still in the range of "normal".
