Hey /an/ my Bunny gave birth to two beautiful baby girls about 12 - 13 weeks ago. i choose to keep them, and bought a new triple cage to them, so there would be enough space. but now my bunny is pregnant again. She managed to get into my male rabbits cage about a month ago, i was quick to get her out, but not quick enough.
i have two problems now.
It's only 12 - 14 weeks ago she gave birth the last time, will she be okay??
and should i separate her and her two other babies, before she gives birth and while the babies grow up?
i feel terrible, i do have enough space, i'm just very worried that my oldest bunny can't handle it. i'm getting the male castrated next month and i bought him another cage so she can't break into it.
>TLDR Female bunny gave birth 12 - 14 weeks ago, is now pregnant again, and lives with her two babies from last time, should i separate them? Will she be okay?

She'll be fine. Bunnies do this pretty often in captivity, especially if you don't keep the sexes well separated. They have multiple litters in the wild, too.

The kits can be raised together, shouldn't be a problem. You'll want to separate them out by sex before they hit sexual maturity, though. The kits can be removed and put in a new cage after four weeks, which is about how long it takes for her to gestate new kits. So, you prefer, just take the old babies out of the cage when the new ones are born. Baby rabbits wean around 4 weeks. We usually separate them from mothers after six weeks, but 4 weeks is fine.
>>
Holy shit, how do you let that happen twice? Crimeny. Owners like you are the biggest reason spaying/neutering is so fervently encouraged.

>inb4 momma rabbit has son and gets pregnant by it

That aside, I'd move the kits out of the cage so they don't disturb her nest. Make sure they don't get the chance to have sex with their daddy; they can ovulate as young as three months, so if he fucks his babies, you might have some incest litters on your hands. As far as the doe's health is concerned, ask your vet what you should watch for, if anything. Rabbits are good at breeding, that's sort of their thing. I think she'll likely be fine, but I'm no expert.

I really think you should consider rehoming either your males or your females and only keep one sex, since you've let this happen twice now. I know that's not what you want to hear.
>>
>>2008235
Learn how to properly skin and gut a rabbit. Eat the males before they're big enough to fuck their mother. Eat any females you can't afford to keep.

They make a great roast and there are tons of recipes online. You can also look up humane slaughtering techniques. Not even being edgy with ya. I've trapped wild ones and roasted them while on long hiking trips and camping trips on friends property.

>>2008271
Her kits now are both female so that's a plus! her new kit is due to a couple of days, she just made a nest yesterday or today and i felt her stomach and she is going to give birth very soon, which also fits the timeline of when she was with my male rabbit
>>2008273
she did NOT get pregnant by her own son, she doesn't have any sons. she have a husband which she just got two female babies with (12- 14 weeks ago) two females. My oldest female live with her two now 12- 14 weeks old female babies.
he is kept separated from them, and is getting castrated in a month or hopefully in this month.
she broke his cage a month ago and i thought i was fast enough to get them separated but i wasn't and i bought him a new cage short after to make sure it wouldn't happen again. she is now pregnant.
i don't think you know what i want to hear...
>>
>>2008273
oh and i don't understand why you say this has now happened twice?
she got pregnant by him about four months ago, gave birth to two girls about three month ago, and escaped her cage one month ago and got accidentally pregnant.
i don't understand?
>>
>>2008273
>>2008287
And the male rabbit is not her son, it's a male rabbit i got from a friend. i only have female rabbits so i really don't understand why you're attacking me.
it's not like i don't know keeping a male and a female together will create problems, that's why i keep them in separate cages, and bought my male a new one when he's old was breakable.
i want to get him castrated it's not like i'm not planning on fixing the problem. i'm sorry my female got pregnant twice with three months in between, it's not like i'm thrilled i just hope she'll be okay. and it's not incest or something that have happened multiply times
>>
>>2008287
That's two times, sweetie.
>>
>>2008287
Is English your second language op
>>
>>2008299
so you simply assume it wasn't a planned pregnancy the first one ??
>>
>>2008306
yes it is, i'm sorry..
i'm just concerned and it's stressing me people think my bunnies are incest.. i'm very sad this pregnancy happened... what if my bunny will die.. i don't know what to do..
>>
>>2008309
Yeah, either English isn't your first language or you're from some third world area where education is an afterthought. You never stated anywhere that the first breeding was intentional. In fact, the way your first post reads it seems like the same situation, accidental pregnancy, happened twice.

Why did you even post the thread. You could Google this information in minutes.
>>
>>2008284
>>2008287
>>2008295

Holy shit. Are you actually this dumb? I wasn't attacking you, but I am now, and you 100% deserve it.

Let me try to make this simple for you.

You let your unspayed doe get fucked by your unneutered buck twice now. You can cry accident all day, but you're the one that's responsible for your rabbits, and you managed to fail to keep them from fucking twice. You've proven yourself to be an irresponsible owner. You should've spayed your doe or neutered your buck months ago, after the first pregnancy. You did not. I'm not sure why you did not, but this is your fault entirely.

I did not say the buck she fucked was her own son. I'm making a prediction that was initially a joke that she will give birth to a male, the male will grow, and by your own failure (again) she's going to fuck her own son and have incest kits.

I want to believe this is bait. If so, 11/10, made me rage.
>>
>>2008317
i'm not from a third world country.. i wrote in here because i can't google it.. i'm sorry but my google don't turn up with shit. it just tells me how to handle bunny kits, and i know that. my problem is she just have given birth, that she lives with her kits,if she will be okay and if i should separate her from her kits, they are both female and age wise there's no problem in separating them.
sorry if i'm not clear enough
>>
>>2008321
Your Googlefu is weak. Use terms like "should pregnant rabbit doe be housed alone to give birth" or "does pregnant rabbit doe need to be alone" etc.
>>
>>2008309
There was a thread a couple of months ago about a doe birthing two kits, that the OP planned on keeping, because she was accidentally impregnated by the OP's buck. If I remember correctly, the pregnancy happened because they were out playing at the same time. It was also written poorly.
>>
>>2008321
I Googled for you and found that in general, they like to be housed alone. They prefer it, especially when giving birth. Other rabbits can induce stress. The first batch of babies aren't even babies any more. They should be housed away from their mother.
>>
I would say I hope your doe dies so you don't make anymore easily avoided litters but since you're keeping the kits they will probably end up fucking a male somehow anyway. It's not that hard to keep rabbits separated and out to play at different times.
>>
OP this is 4chan, people are going to be mean :) If you have another cage and the mother's due any day now, you should house the babies separate from her. It'd be a good idea to neuter the boy and rehome any boy bunnies so something like this doesn't happen unplanned again! If the mom isn't very young and these have been her only two litters, she is almost definitely going to be fine. Just let her rest and google foods that help pregnant mama bunnies.
>>
I remember the first thread...
i don't want to see a third one with the same topic

Post pics!

>>2008339
my bunny is fine, she gave birth to six little kits tonight. my bunnies are kept separated and the male got a new cage my female bunny can't open.
>>2008497
i have plenty of cages, and have given her the triple cage for herself. she is very happy and i'm feeding her extra to fatten her a bit up, she is well and her kits are too, as well as her two older kits, in a couple of weeks when they start to explore the cage i'll do as the last time and check gender everyday.
i will make sure to separate males and females and have bought a new double cage so there'll be space for everybody. i will though sell this littler when they are 8 - 10 weeks old, because i don't want ten bunnies. i might keep one or two, but only females. and get my male fixed as fast as possible. they are kept separated, and he got a new cage my female can't break into so it won't happen again. she is healthy and was very proud to show me her little ones, she feeds them well and i must say wow i'm proud.
>>
>>2008318
meh, it's a fucking rabbit.

you can eat the extras, it's no big deal.
>>
Ayy bunnyanon, welcome back, can you post more pics of brownie and snow (I think those were their names? I forgot)? Also I'm sorry mother Mary got pregnant again, you said in your last thread that you were getting the dad fixed soon, what happened to that?
>>
>>2009484
same can be said for cats and dogs but noooooo pet apologists would rather them piled into a giant fireplace and made to ash to be thrown out instead
>>
I hear rabbit is absolutely delic. Good luck with your new rabbit farming adventures!
>>
>>2009489
hello i will post some pictures a little later!
Well i was, and still is, but i kinda suddenly have to move. I needed more space because i wanted a bunny room and well i got more space and the bunnies are happy but i got a budget hole and decided to postpone to get him fixed. i even talked with a vet that said it was okay because her drive would be down when she still lives with her first kits.
Well the vet was wrong.. but i really tried preventing it, he is in a cage and i never take them out together, last time it was my boyfriends little brother that brought them together while the rest of the family was have a garden party, and well i didn't even know she was pregnant before two weeks after she gave birth.
this time i kinda had a hunch because i know she broke into Holgers cage a month ago, i just thought i was fast enough to get her out. but he day i wrote this thread i knew she was pregnant and i prepared her cage and everything so she won't get stressed.
and well Holger has a new cage because of the incident last month.
i'm just glad we're in December, because i know what to wish for! so in about 30 days i will no longer need to keep them separated

Cats and dogs do not taste good, anon. Unlike horses and donkeys. Now THOSE are good eating.
>>
>>2009514

Eating cats and dogs instead of euthanising them would only make sense in a starving country. Sure, you could keep shelter cats and dogs long enough that their system is drug-free (expensive), then transport them by road (expensive) to a slaughterhouse that manages to account for the crazy variations in dog size and weight (very expensive- you're not going to have conveyors, crushes, captive bolts, shackles, electrified water baths, etc, that can cater to a toy dog AND to a large breed, and the automated systems are used to keep costs down) and obtain some meat from their relatively stringy corpses. You will then have a small amount of very expensive to produce meat that doesn't taste great and will be repugnant to most people- congratulations anon, you just solved world hunger!

..Or you could up chicken production for a fraction of the same cost and get higher returns instead of introducing a very specialist service with a very small yield. Raising meat animals en masse produces more meat than feeding meat to a much smaller number of lean carnivores that were not bred for high meat returns.
>>
I can't wait to hear about the OP sadly resorting to eating his incest bunnies since he can't prevent them from breeding. Seriously. The tears, the drama, the rabbit stew.
