    Our mini lop rabbit is due to give birth tomorrow. She escaped our house almost 31 days ago (we are getting her spayed, to make sure we don’t have any more litters after this) and she was out for about an hour. There are lots of rabbits in the area and she has been pregnant once before so we assumed that she was pregnant. Last time she was pregnant we didn’t pay much attention because we didn’t know that she was so we don’t have much experience, but this time she has not shown any signs of being pregnant. We gave her a nesting box, she pulled all the hay out and tried to tip it over. We tried to palpate her but we couldn’t feel anything. I would appreciate any tips on if we will be expecting a litter tomorrow, thanks in advance.

    Well, if she were pregnant she would be very pregnant by now, but it does happen that there isn't much to notice. Since this isn't her first time she should know when to build a nest and pluck fur, so if that doesn't happen in thne next 3-4 days she might have skipped that opportunity.

    Does aren't always in the mood, or there wasn't a buck around. Anyway, give her lots of hay and keep checking on her frequently, more often if she starts nesting, just to make sure there aren't any kits outside the nest.
