    I think it's 28 days ish after mating? Or 31? I'd count from the last time you saw them doing that roughly google the numbers I've never actually bred bunnies just learnt a lot when I had a female that was thought to be pregnant - was a while ago tho

    The vet can neuter the male now for sure. Judging by what you've said, they won't do an emergency spay on the female as it's risky when they're pregnant.

    Ensure they're separated and have no chance of getting to each other.

    Please don't palpate her abdomen. You can cause bruising to internal organs if you do it incorrectly and may injure any unborn kits.

    It definitely sounds like she is pregnant, do as much research as possible starting with the links that MightyMax has provided you

    I'm glad he's booked in.

    I hope the vets will be addressing the untrained member of staff giving out incorrect advice.

    Maybe they could provide a helping hand by offering a discount on the baby rabbits to be vaccinated or neutered (if she gives birth) as it's their incorrect information that caused this situation.

    Yes this is normal. She needs peace and quiet now to have the babies.
