    I know that the day a doe kindles can vary a few days either way. Just from what you all know about kindling when will she most likely kindle? She's a californian, Daddy is a New Zealand. I put them together on the evening of August 31st. Thank you!

    She'll most likely kindle tomorrow, since most rabbits are pregnant for 31 days (at least, that is the average). Individual gestation periods can vary, however. Most of my does go to day 31 but some have gone to day 33. 28-32 days is the normal range.

    We have Calis and New Zealand rabbits too. The 28-31 has been our experience also.

    Do you have babies yet?
