Hi, everyone! I’m new here and I’m looking for help. (My questions are at the bottom if you don’t want to read the whole backstory!) I’ve got two lop mixes and I was told by their breeder that they were both males. They were about 8 months when I got them and I’ve had them for about 5 months. These aren’t the first rabbits I’ve had, but my situation is slightly different with these two because they weren’t completely tame when I got them. They were both very stressed when I brought them home, so I decided to keep them together until they got more used to the new environment. The breeder told me that they’d eventually need separated because male rabbits tend to fight. I’d had every intention of separating them, but they hadn’t started fighting, so I decided to wait. About two or three weeks ago, however, I noticed that one of them was missing large patches of fur, and so I assumed that they had begun fighting. I finally separated them and thought everything would be fine, but the one missing hair continued to lose it and there were large clumps filling the nest box. That’s when I realized it wasn’t normal, so after extensive research I discovered that the most likely reason for “his” hair pulling was that he was actually a girl and was probably preparing for babies. A little over a week ago, I went out to feed them and change bedding and discovered four little babies in her nest. One of them was already dead and then another died the next day. The other two are very healthy and growing pretty rapidly, which is great! However, I’m now concerned because Momma has basically stopped eating her pellets. I’ve been providing her with extra, so she can get more nutrients, but she’s not even touching them. Along with more pellets, she’s been receiving more hay, as well. She moves most of the hay into the nest, so she’s eating about the same amount of it that she was before. She gets fresh grass and veggies every day as well. Should I be concerned that she’s not eating her pellets? I’ve tried everything to get her to eat more of them, but she seems disinterested. Any advice?? Thanks!
