View Full Version : How should I check them?

I was under the impression I was not to touch my rabbits kits however I was told today that I should check the babies daily. What should I be looking for exactly? Do I need to move them or just a quick peep to check they are alive? They were only born last night and the mum seems fine:)

I just had a quick peep at my foster babies everyday to make sure they were all alive and well.

People did say I could touch them but I was to scared of the mother rejecting them if I did.

If you're going to touch them then make sure you rub your hands in some of the soiled hay and poo so you smell like their mum

I don't have alot of advice as I don't have any experience in this but I'm sure someone who is more of a help will be along shortly
