Holland Lop doe kindled first litter this morning, 5 live kits and placenta in nest box. She's out of the nest box, cleaning herself and eating but has had 2 more contractions in the past 30 minutes. Is it normal for them to continue contracting after they are done giving birth, even after birthing placenta?

It's possible she could have more kits in her other uterine horn, so more kits could possibly be on the way.

It's hard to say for sure. If something is stuck or still inside her, it won't hurt to feed her some kale to build up those strong contractions.


Congrats on your new litter!
