    I have conflicting info on sizes. I have large breeds (AM chins, NZ, Calis, and Satins) but I was looking at the nesting box I have...um....not big enough. Today is day 27 and I was going to put it in tomorow at day 28. Any one have any plans? Or ideas? Thanks!

    a rabbit breeder I know says to make the boxes two inches longer and two inches wider than the doe is in her normal resting state.
