No rabbits do not come into heat and will mate at any time of the year. The only time a rabbit will not mate is if it is a pregnant female. They will actually mate 1hr after giving birth. However, this is not good for either the mum, or the litter she will still have with her and female rabbits can have periods if their not spayed(its pssiable)
