    Took a short video of Hazel nest building (the lid to the hutch is normally closed- I opened it to take the video). She also normally has access to the whole hutch (2 stories) and run, but I closed the ramp so she's stuck on the top level (worried about babies falling down).

    She just started nest building this morning! :)

    Great video! Might be a bit late now, but in future, confining her to the bottom so she nests there and then you can open the ramp after she's given birth to give her more space might be a good option - they never choose the sensible space do they!

    Lol, she's so confused with the top open she doesn't quite know what to do. Once she starts plucking her fur out, it shouldn't be long before the babies show up. Best of luck to momma bun :)

    Well its been 48 hours since she built her nest. Im guessing any second now? Is there anything I should be doing other than making sure shes well feed, watered, and leaving her alone?
