    Or is there a *normal*? I know 28-31 days..right? Wish it was easier, like with chickens. You know on day 21 they should hatch. hehe

    I have three does due, bred on the 2nd of February. None are pulling hair. All have protuding teats, but I was told that wasn't a sign. One has what feels like a very full abdomen (more so than the others), but I am new at this so didn't try too hard to feel for babes. They each have nest boxes, but again, no pulling hair. They get in the nest boxes a little bit, but more like to sleep than actually doing anything.

    I know some breeds have them on a specific time more than others so curious if these were one of them.

    Now to the other question at hand ...... 31 days check her girl parts ( like u would if sexing) if its bright red almost purple then shes close ( or not preg and wants to be bred)
    try giving a handful of hay and see what she does with it it sometime motivates them to start nesting . Hair pulling usually starts when the doe is a couple of hours away and due to it being chilly they like to hang on to there hair as long as possible. Keep your eye out for signs that she has stuck kits and occasionally that breed tends to scatter there babies on the wire any more questions feel free to ask, we raise lots of bunnies

    Thank you so much! :) I didn't know that about the girl parts so will check tomorrow. Gosh I hope they are already bred! hehe

    The nest boxes a friend made for me and as long as she has them in the boxes, I think we're good for them not to scatter, but it's really cold so I'll keep checking on them. :)
