    My holland lop bunny had 5 baby's and she is feeding them wonderfully but she isn't licking them or cleaning them at all ? They aren't peanuts and she seems to be feeding them very well and very often but she just hops in and hops out with out cleaning or licking or anything ? I'm concerned on what I should do ?? Has any one had simalar problems or know how to help her properly clean them or do it myself ? I'm not sure how to do so ? Will this jeopardize there health ? I appreciate any and all answers I get :) thanks !?!?!?

    Most mother rabbits don't clean or lick their babies at all. Sounds like your Holland Lop is normal :) Congrats on the nice large litter though.
