The babies need lots of fur to keep warm.
Babies in 2 separate spots I call a split nest. If I find
that happens, I put them all in one spot.

Mother rabbits are not like dog or cat moms.
She gets in the box to feed them and when she is done,
they snuggle back down in the fur.

I keep nest boxes in with the doe year round.

Just wanted to let you guys know that the first litter all died, but she has another now who is 1 week old!! Also, we have some 5-week olds from another momma. 😁 I'm so happy!

Some lessons are learned the hard way. Sorry to hear about the first litter but congratulations on the latest one.
