My Tallulah, when she was 1ish, used to nest a lot ( I was saving up for spay) but it wasn't possible as my boy is neutered!

I'm not sure. Maybe best to check with someone on here who has had a pregnant doe before!

Do you know how old she is? Make sure you don't touch her nest...leave it as it is until you know if she is pregnant or not. There are people more knowledgeable on her about pregnant bunnies I have never had a pregnant bunny so can't help you i'm afraid but someone will come along soon and give you advice.

Sometimes it's better to get in touch with a rescue who are clear with what they do r.e neutering, vaccination, home checks. I think 'proper' rescues only rehome single bunnies to homes where they will be bonded with a neutered partner. It's possible she may have said she rescues to fob off some rabbits to make way for 'new stock' if she is actually a breeder, but I have no idea who this person is so they may well be a rescue.

I would try and get in touch with her any way you can :wave: email, phone, text if you can, fb message. Do you know roughly how old she is? She could have an emergency spay if you take her to a rabbit savvy vet and they can tell you if she is too far gone or not for it to be done. I think the period between a rabbit being pregnant and giving birth is a month (someone please correct me if that's wrong!) so if she hasn't given birth in the next week or 2 then you might be okay but don't quote me on that.

Edit:
These might be useful if she is in fact pregnant:

Does that mean you have a nuetered boy and unnutered female together?

If so how do they get on?

Sorry to butt in.. :) It depends on the rabbits, but tbh it would just be easier if the female was spayed before hand because all of her hormones could result in a nasty fight if she smell, sees or has a male in her space. Even in a neutral area she would feel territorial I imagine so it could end badly! Having a spayed and neutered pair would eliminate all worries about that and a bond can take its course :)

I got domino done because I didn't want babies, and I was saving up for Tallulah to get spayed, but she passed away. :cry: She was from the same litter so they got on really well!

She can be spayed then :) Can you take her to the vets? It may be hormones, my female made nests until I had her spayed at 4 years old. The statistics for female rabbits having uterine cancer is increasing, it was 80% but I think it's more now. Even if it is hormones I urge you to get her spayed, not only for the health benefits but it means she can be bonded with a neutered male 6 weeks after operating :wave: rescues can do the bonding for you too :wave: I would definitely get her to the vets to have her checked over though :)
