hi, i’m not sure i’m posting in the right area
i have a bunny that is maybe pregnant, my first girl turned out to be a boy, only knew after i found me humping the possible pregnant one. they were together for a few hours before i saw him humping her
that was on the 21st of January, she digs in the corner of her hutch, she has gone off of her food. today i’ve noticed she is a bit more restless.
Her nipples are sticking out heaps

Yes definatley pregnant I think😂 she might be. A little stressed out so stay calm around her. Hope for the best and let her do her thing unless you think there is a problem:) I had a doe who just kindled 7 kits today! I bred her Jan 21 didn’t think she was pregnant because she wasn’t building a nest. This morning I checked on her BOOM giant nest full of fur and hay and 7 perfect little babies:)

I was looking and if she hasn’t given birth I don’t think it would be mastitis which is a nipple infection but I would take a look and see if they need to be wiped cleaned etc. Don’t use a wipe with disinfectant yet or anything like that just try wiping gently with a cloth. If it seem to keep happening I would take her in to the vet just in case she is pregnant and there is an issue.

If it’s milk her hormones could be making her think she needs to start producing... if she doesn’t have the babies soon she will need a vet to help take out some of that milk because obviously she has allot prepared/ producing for her kits😂 I wouldn’t stress for now and just see when she kindles. Has she made a nest yet?
