Doe Bleeding 28 days pregnant

My rabbit is 28 days pregnant and is bleeding from her vagina. Does anyone have any idea why?

Rabbits typically will have some blood-tinged, watery discharge from the vent after kindling, but I've never heard of one doing it before. Are you sure she hasn't already given birth? I have had does deliver kits when they were at 21 to 26 days' gestation; the kits all died because they were clearly not mature enough to live. I can remember one litter born at 27 days; some of them did make it. I have had a few litters born at 28 days' gestation that looked "full term," and evidently, they were - but those were numerically huge litters (13, 14 kits). 

 

Does may have a discharge when the process of delivery gets halted by a kit being stuck, but that usually happens because a kit is very large. At 28 days' gestation, a kit simply hasn't had enough time to grow that big.

 

I dunno - it's a puzzle to me.:idunno

The only way she would of had them is if she ate them she is in a cage box. Today there was blood again she acts fine eats drinks I tried reasearching it and cant find anything.

That is certainly possible.  Not likely, but possible, particularly if she just had one or two.
