My Mini Lop doe is due to kindle in a few days and today I’m putting in the nestbox. I’ve been trying to get a bale of straw but I haven’t been able to and won’t be able to until after she kindles!! (It’s complicated) Should I just like it with alfalfa hay? I’m worried that she’ll eat it instead of making a nest:( Is there something else around the house that I could use? Thanks you guys:)

She is doing ok:) She has not kindled yet but she looks ready to explode! She has made her nest and lined it with fur and seems ready but still no babies... I don't have any current pictures but there are some older pictures of her on my bunny blog:) her name is Patty:)

I hope she does good kindling! When the babies are here please send some pictures! I'm absolutely obsessed with baby rabbits!

It's fine for them to use whatever hay/straw is available. It doesn't have to be a particular type, as long as it's clean and dry it's good.

Thanks you guys:) I ended up holding the mom so the tiny one could eat but it didn't seem interested:( It is really small and skinny and red... All the others are nice and fat and squirming:) I will try to get some pictures up really soon...

Thanks:) The little one seemed a lot stronger this morning:) I brought the mama in and held her so he/she could eat some more and he/she seemed a lot stronger after that:):) The rest of the kits are fine and already look bigger! They grow sooo fast! I haven't been able to get any pictures yet but I will soon! :):)

My house rabbit had a litter today, she only started pulling out fur minutes before she gave birth. I didn’t even know she was pregnant. We now have 4 dear little bunnies.
