Tracy said:Probably the runt. Might get pushed away at nursing time. Watch to make sure the belly is round. If so then it is being fed. This is why it is always a good idea to breed 3 or more does at one time so if you have a larger litter and another doe has a smaller litter you can foster them to the other rabbits so all are being fedand have equal litter sizes.
ltcc said:10 babies is a good litter was it your does 1st litter? If she is a good mom she should have no trouble feeding 10 mouths. One of my does is currently nursing 15 healthy baby bunnies. If it is her 1st litter make sure your hands do not smell of any other animals before checking babies. I have a fickle doe who I always rub her 1st and her nest before even trying to look at new babies so they have no chance of smelling funny. A new mom could kill her young if they smell different then she thinks they should. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!
