    Good morning all! I've adopted a week ago a dwarf doe.
    I cought my rabbit nesting on Thursday morning. I removed her from outside cage indoors to keep an eye on her and make sure it's warm. Friday morning she build another nest, next to her nesting box. Saturday she moved the hay from the 2nest to the box. Sunday no activity. No fur pulling. Today is Monday ... What are the chances she is going to have the babies? The previous owners are out of town so I'm not sure if she was bred or not.

    You’ll have to wait and see. Most does nest a couple of days before kindling. Some first timers will build one early, like 2 weeks early. It’s also possible this is a false pregnancy.

    Great! If they’re outside just check on them to make sure mom is keeping them covered.
