    I woke up to find my minilop in her cage with alot of white fur all over her cage. I heard they do this to make a nest if they are going to have bunnies but she does not have a boyfriend, she has been hanging out with the chickens but other than that nothing. Anyone know why?

    there is a good chance that she is going through a fake pregnacy. many animals do this and rodents are very prone to do this. If you let her go she will eventually give up. or of course you could always get her a boyfriend [​IMG]

    My Rabbit did this, i was concerned and brought her to the vet. She was going through a fake pregnancy. after a while she gave up, and was back to her normal self.
