Thought this might be good for educational purposes. My Dutch Clementine just gave birth about 10 minutes ago. I filmed the first 2 kits. The second one I noticed was breach, and I was about to reach over and pull it out and then one big push and it was on the ground so, I guess she didn't need me.

Ignore the peeping in the background...my guest room has been converted into a nursery....for rabbits and baby chicks.

I'll say it's graphic because for one it's a rabbit giving birth and any birth can't be pretty , and rabbits do eat placenta which inevitably was caught on film also.

Right now there's just two and she's in there getting a drink. She could have more later or she could be done. It's unusual for my Dutch to just have 2, usually I get at least 4-5. I guess we'll have to wait until later for that info.

That's a great video, thanks for posting it Jesse!

If it's okay with you, do you think Peg and I could use this in an article in the rabbitry section? I'm sure it would fit in great with what ideas we have for breeding/pregnancy articles. ;)

Looks like just those 2! We'll see how she does, I may divy up a bigger litter that my other doe had on monday... but she's doing a fantastic job too so I dont see the need just yet. I still have another doe about to pop!

Update: The little opal (kit #1) passed away today. No idea what happened. He was fat and happy last night. It happens I suppose.

Another blue doe of mine had 6 babies 2 days after, and killed 3 of them, so I tookt he remaining 3 from her and gave them to Clementine, who has been a wonderful doting mother to them. They're doing great!

I dont think the other momma was feeding them as much as they could eat...and I kept finding them peed on and cold. I tried nursing them on her and she got pretty upset. I said fudge on this, i'll give them to a momma who appreciates babies. But by this time there were only 3 left, the other 3 I think got cold from being wet.
