    With the girls!
    I have a bunny whom I suspect is 29 days pregnant. I tried palpating her, and she palpated positive, but it is my first time breeding, and I am not 100% sure. I gave her a nest box yesterday, but she just sat in it, and peed, and pooped in it. She is only a little more mean than usual, and she is a very sweet bunny. When I bred her, the buck grunted and fell off 3 times. She is very large. Please help. Is she pregnant? Thanks so much!
    PS; I just posted something saying that she is for sure pregnant, but now I am having major doubts

    I think you'll just have to be patient a wait it out; day 29-you will not have to wait long to know for sure.

    Yes, it sounds like there is a good chance that the mating took and you will soon have kits. But, not being able to examine the doe, I have to state that many matings do not take. There's always next time and next time is only a month away.

    My advice is to wait a few days. Gestation periods are close estimates and may not be exact.
