    Keep them separated. Your dominant doe is going to continue to attack, and may even kill, any perceived threat to her kits.

    Quote:Good advice. They will need to be kept separate. I had a couple of bunnies way back when that were housed together after she had her first litter she would never go back to co habit again.

    Does are extremely territorial. Usually they will get along fine until separated out. Usually once you try to put a rabbit back in at least one of the does will go crazy.
