hi guys so my rabbits got with an escaped male on the 7th Feb and one of them has gone really fat and i can feel lumps kicks and movement and shes also built a nest however the other rabbit isnt so fat and i couldnt feel any lumps but shes built and nest AND pulled loads of fur today and last night but the other rabbit hasnt
My (pet) bunnies have gone into a new house today, there's a house part with a run underneath. There's a ramp down to the lower level. At the moment, I've got half of the floor in the house up, but I'll be cutting it (that half) and putting back part of it. Does anyone have any ideas as to the headroom rabbits need when coming up a ramp or how to calculate it?

Once a doe is impregnated, the buck's job is over. Rabbit bucks do not contribute to the raising of kits in any way. In fact, having a buck around creates stress for the doe during her pregnancy, as a buck will harrass a pregnant doe by chasing her around and continuing to try to mount her. Bucks spray to mark their territory, so moving a buck far enough away that the doe and her nest won't be regularly splattered with urine will be a relief to her as well.
@paigemcgrory - I answered your query on another thread, but one more thought occurred. Are you absolutely sure that these two nests were built by different does? A rabbit will use whatever nest materials are available, and that includes pulling fur from other rabbits if she can reach them. If you saw the second doe building the nest, the point is moot, but if you didn't see the nest being built and are assuming that the second doe built it because it is her fur in the nest, it is possible that the first doe pulled it off of her and put it there.
