A rabbit's gestation period is 31. And Lila is pregnant. Day 33. This is Lila's third pregnancy. I give 3 shots, you're out. Normally. I love Lila. She is probably the sweetest female rabbit I've ever had. She definitely takes after her dad. Her first two pregnancies she had no birthing issues, but built very poor nests on the wire. She won't use the nesting box. So I lost both litters.
Six days ago I gave her a nest box. Put shavings in the bottom and hay on top. As I expected, she pulled all the hay out of th nest. Dug all the shavings out. Shredded the hay and threw it all over the place. I keep putting more hay in the nest box and she kept pulling it out and shredding it. I'm trying to keep on top of it so she'll have her babies in the nest.
But, like I said, she's two days late. And hasn't even pulled fur. This morning I palpated her and can still feel the babies moving. I refilled the nest box again, and she's in it digging around. I'll take out a tums for added calcium later, though I doubt she'll eat it. Will update later.
2 hours later: I went out to check on her and she's made a lovely nest in the nest box and had 4 beautiful babies!
