this is essentially an abortion but very early in the process of pregnancy so she resorbs the unborn kits- nothing is expelled externally- her body absorbs the nutrients back into her system. there may be many reasons for this such as stress and infection or even a problem with the formation of her embryos.

Litter training rabbits?

If your looking to litter train a rabbit, start by looking at where your rabbit is going to the toilet mainly. Put a litter tray in that place. If your rabbit it going to the toilet in a place you do not want it to, put vinegar there, and this should stop your rabbit messing where you dont want it to. If your rabbit still insists on not using it's litter tray, buy some cat litter and put it into the litter tray, this encourages the rabbit to wee there, as soon as your rabbit is weeing in it's litter tray, take away the cat litter. If your rabbit changes back to a place where you dont want it to wee, put the cat litter back. Keep doing this until your rabbit gets the hang of it!


Could a female rabbit get pregnant again as soon as she gives birth to a litter?

Yes, a rabbit is capable of becoming pregnant again immediately after she has given birth to kits. There is a myth that rabbits have 2 wombs this however is not true, rabbits are just extremely fertile. They can reabsorb a little in times of extreme stress, they can also delay giving birth to litter if they are stressed.

What will a mother rabbit do with the runt of the litter?

It depends on how many there are in the litter. Like if there are three she will probably keep it, but if there are six she might abandon it. Remember every mother is different. My Rabbit killed hers, she had 3 in her litter, and she dragged him out side of the nest! Still if your mother rabbit is feeding the rabbit, then it is not a runt!
