We have our meat rabbits newly in a colony and surprise surprise woke up this morning to a momma made nest of kits... I'm going to whip up some nesting boxes incase we have more babes coming but I'm wondering if I should move the kits that were just born to a nesting box, if mom will or if I should just leave them be. It's cold here.. about -5C and going to get colder... I don't want them to get stepped on by other bunnies either as there are 9 presently in our enclosure.

:frow...Definitely get them moved. I hung a heat lamp over my nest to keep the Bunnies warm. Once they left the nest they slept under the heat lamp when cold.
