PregnancyThe pregnancy usually lasts for 28-35 days but 90% of my does have given birth after 31 or 32 days. The litter is usually born at night, though you may notice the Doe pulling her fur out during the day. Most books say that rabbits build a nest 1 week before the litter is due but I find that they build it the same day the young are born.
If you see your Doe building a nest (gathering hay/straw and pulling out her fur) then make sure you provide her with extra materials to help build the nest. Dont be alarmed if the Doe pulls fur from other rabbits she lives with. They dont seem to mind too much and it may be because she doesnt have enough of her own.
You need to feed her twice as much food as you would normally and this needs increasing to three times as much when suckling a whole litter of kittens.
