Why is knowing the gestation period important for rabbit breeders?

Understanding gestation helps breeders prepare for the birth, monitor the rabbit's health, and provide appropriate care during pregnancy.

Can I determine my rabbit's breed if I don't know it?

If unsure of the breed, you can select "average" to get an estimated gestation period.

What are common signs of rabbit pregnancy?

Signs include behavioral changes, such as nesting behavior, increased appetite, and palpable fetuses around 10-14 days post-breeding.

How can I prepare for a rabbit's birth?

Ensure a clean, quiet nesting area, monitor for signs of labor, and have a vet's contact information ready for assistance.

What should I feed a pregnant rabbit?

Provide a balanced diet of fresh hay, vegetables, and limited pellets to support the mother's health and the developing kits.

What complications can occur during rabbit pregnancy?

Complications include dystocia (difficult birth), pregnancy toxemia, and stillbirths. Regular vet check-ups help detect and manage these issues.
