Why are all the babies rabbits dying after being born?
Sometimes it takes rabbits up to three litters to get what is going on and be a good parent. However, you also have to do your part. Make sure they have an adequate nest. It should have the mother's fur and something elso to nest with (timothy hay or perhaps cotton from a pillow). They should be placed somewhere warm and quiet so they mother doesn't get stressed out. If there isn't somewhere warm to put them you can use a heating pad on the lowest setting and place it under their nest box. Nevertheless, some mother rabbits just aren't good parents and never will be. It is cruel to keep bringing rabbits into the world just for them to die so at this point be a nice person and stop breeding the rabbit.

Yes. Their eyes should open about ten to eleven days after birth.
Answer Leave them alone, make sure the mom has a nesting box and the mother will take care of them. the next day check the box and make sure there are no dead ba…bies. Reach your hand in and the dead ones will feel cold. Remove them immediatly.
If the baby rabbits are old enough to have run away from the nest, then there is no reason to worry. the young rabbits know where home is and will not stray far from it. It is… a natural instinct to run away from a predator, hence humans, and they never run very far from their nest when they do run.
If the mother is a first time mom, do not touch her babies until they have their eyes open. If she trusts you and has had litters before this one, you may touch the babies but… rub some of her nesting material on your hands first to keep her scent on them.
In brief, yes they do. yes, as a mater of fact they do have fingernails when they are born
it is 28-31 days after the mating that the babies are born
Rabbits kindle (give birth) to litters. So yes, a doe will have all her babies (kits) at one time.
The babies will all come a different times. Like with humans, they will give birth at all different times when they've gone into labour.
no. baby rabbits don't come out feet first they come out head first but it is very rare that they come out feet first.
They eat unlimited amounts of alfalfa hay and dried rabbit feed (pellets). You can also give them apple tree wood. Fresh leafy greens (like Romaine lettuce) can be introduced …in tiny portions at 12 weeks, but other vegetables (like carrot, fruits, etc.) should be held off until the rabbit is about 6 months old.

A baby rabbit is born naked, they start to grow fur and you start to be able to tell what color they will be when they are 3 days old. Read more: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/W…hen_do_rabbits_get_their_fur#ixzz1lHraJEMT
no because they cant move very well
YOU do nothing, it's up to the mother to take care of them and keep them warm. If she has built a nest don't touch it, if she hasn't give her materials, like paper towels, to …do so. Separate the daddy bunny from mom and the babies for a month or so. Spay her when she's done nursing them by 12 weeks.
