Does a rabbit have to be in heat to get pregnant?
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)
My rabbit might be 2 weeks pregnant- she is plucking alittle fir and make a nest- but she was with the buck when she wasn't in heat- is she pregnant?
The answer is no. Rabbits are induced ovuators. That means they have no heat cycle, but breeding them causes them to be in heat, which basically ensures that they will get pregnant almost every time. Their 'private part' may look darker red when they have reached an age when they are ready to breed, but not with all rabbits. If your rabbit's genitalia is swollen, this is a sign of illness or injury. Look for…
from four to six months. better to wait until eight months, if breeding, so you don't stress your doe. The answer above is about when the rabbit reaches sexual maturity. Rabbits don't really "go into "heat" because they're induced ovulators: once they're sexually mature, female rabbits can get pregnant any time.
My rabbit is 5 months and the boy has been mating with her for a month and she still isn't pregnant why?
you tell if your your lionhead is pregnant if the rabbit starts pulling her hair out. you dont want to the male rabbit in there when female rabbit is giving birth he will eat baby bunnies! your rabbit will start pulling at their hair usually on the 28th day after (doing it) then will usually give birth on the 31st day or diff.
