How old is she, is this her first time? Over which period of time did you try to breed her? One of mine needed to see the buck regularily for 3 weeks (lots of cuddling, grazing, grooming) until she got in the mood and did lift.

Are you sure the issue is not the buck, is he proven? There are issues like split penis that can render a buck prety useless in that regard.

I have often read "Fall Off". What does that really mean? Can any one explain please. I am new to such terms of Rabbit rearing. I have 2 New Zealand whites born in Feb. Although one tries to ride the other whole day but nothing really happens as the other one is usually laying down on the ground.

Search on youtube for "rabbit fall off". There are quite some videos of bucks getting the deed done. They practice humping while still immature, you'll never know when he succeed if they are together all the time, so you wouldn't know when to expect a litter.

Your rabbits are still quite young.

You said they are both boys? They are 3 months old now and maybe you can check again if testicles dropped in both of them, babies are missexes pretty often so it is possible that one is a girl or maybe just submissive boy, or maybe just one who rides is an early bloomer and other one will become sexually active a bit later, then he will also start riding his brother probably. As we already explained previously, this riding each other can lead to fights if they are both males, or if one is a female she can get pregnant from about 14 weeks if one of the ridings was successful. Then when she is pregnant she can start being aggressive to the rider and there can be fights, she can damage his genitalia really badly, this happens pretty often.

So, as per previous conversations, it would be best not to let them ride each other because it can and most likely will lead to the fights, they are still young and maybe will listen to you when you say no, but it won't last long, one day they won't listen and can have a tornado you won't be able to stop them,

I see you are just curious and would like to see with your own eyes if we are telling the truth but it would be best to separate them before the one who's laying down reacts aggressively.

I do see some pink sacs in one of them. One is slightly smaller than others. But to the contrary they are both very very friendly and often will rest together, eat together and even play together. They lick and groom each other most of the time. If one goes missing for a while the other will look for the one every where till they find each other. There is no fight at all though they run after each other and jump a lot. Of course I do keep a watch if there is any fight. The gy from whom I got them said both are females and was offering me a male as companion but I refused. It will be difficult to accommodate him at this age. Yeah these days they are very agile and hardly stay in your hands unlike when they were very young and small. Lets see. will keep posting and will also try to take pics for advise. Again what is fall off?

Looks like the guy was wrong. If the other one turns out to be a female like the guy said you still need to take precautions. Both of mine are male and behaved exactly the way you said when they were younger until they got older then the dominant one was too aggressive to the submissive one who is now very scared of him and hence I had to keep them both separate. Everything that user zuppa issaying to you whom you quoted is right.

I dont know how to undo the reaction I accidentally clicked on in your post but there is a pinned thread stating these opinions in this section is against the rules as well as vice versa-promoting bred rabbits in the adoption/rescue forum:
