    Hi! My sweet girl has 27 day old bunnies, they’re doing awesome. She got out and got pregnant a day or so after delivering. How do I manage her nursing and having new babies?

    It's time to wean and seperate the first litter. If they are around they quite likely will trample and soil the nest, and raid the milk buffet.

    4 weeks is old enough to wean them, they should already eating whatever the doe eats, don't make changes to that diet, well, you can start to add some kitchen oatmeal since that is high energy and easy to digest.
