Pregnant rabbit? Please help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have a bunny whom I suspect is 29 days pregnant. I tried palpating her, and she palpated positive, but it is my first time breeding, and I am not 100% sure. I gave her a nest box yesterday, but she just sat in it, and peed, and pooped in it.  She is only a little more mean than usual, and she is a very sweet bunny. When I bred her, the buck grunted and fell off 3 times. She is very large. Please help. Is she pregnant? Thanks so much!

PS; I just posted something saying that she is for sure pregnant, but now I am having major doubts

I think you'll just have to be patient a wait it out; day 29-you will not have to wait long to know for sure.

Thanks! does it sound like she is pregnant to you? I am just so anxious and exited for the babies. I am really, really hoping that she is. Thanks again @nchls school

Yes, it sounds like there is a good chance that the mating took and you will soon have kits. But, not being able to examine the doe, I have to state that many matings do not take. There's always next time and next time is only a month away.

My advice is to wait a few days.  Gestation periods are close estimates and may not be exact.
