Hi,
My rabbit is on day 34 and has not kindled. This is her second pregnancy and last time she gave birth to 2 on day 33. is this ok?

I've known them to take up to 35 to 39 days in rare cases. If she hasn't kindled by day 35 I would recommend a vet visit the premises to give her a health check to ensure no complications.

A heads up that this is a pro rescue forum and you may not get much information on the breeding of rabbits as there is an overpopulation of them in the UK.

Hi,

You may wish to read this (http://forums.rabbitrehome.org.uk/showthread.php?327923-Accidental-Litters-and-Taking-on-Babies).

I agree with Daphne and Phoebe. Day 35 is not uncommon, but a vet check is essentially, unless there is any change in behaviour, in which case you need to go to the vets straight away.

it's day 36, stil no babies. We are having a vet come and feel if there are any. Do you think it's a false pregnancy?

A vet coming to give her an examination is the best thing you can do for her right now x

It concerns me that you're asking these questions because it indicates that you don't have a breeder mentor or someone you're learning from. It's important for you to be able to have someone like that if you're breeding g for many reasons, not least of all because they can answer your questions and actually show you things that we can't. It would be advisable to find someone in your local area to learn from if you continue to want to breed. Please make sure they are reputable. You're welcome to message me about any of this if you have any questions.

I really hope it's a false pregnancy and your bunny is ok.
