Question
Hi,my female rabbit had a surprise pregnancy today. What do I feed them can I move them to clean her inside cage. can I touch them. Or anything else I need to know. please help

Answer
hi just ensure she has plenty of hay in her cage . don't try and clean out the cage or she may abandon them. you do not have to feed them for the first week after that but some bran flakes in so they an chew on them if they want to.
continue feeding the mum as usual ensuring she has water to drink.
do not touch them ,just let her get on with rearing them.
don't expect to see her feeding them she will do it when all is quite.
they open there eyes at 7-10 days , this is when you can touch them

I can answer questions about breeding and showing rabbits. I have been breeding Black Rex rabbits for the past 10 years and have won numerous prizes for showing them. Ive also done a fair amount of judging.
