Why do mother rabbits kill their babies?
they will only kill there young if you touch the babies, touch the mum or if you put another rabbit with them. This is not true they will not kill them if you touch them, i have at least 4 sets of babies right now that i handle every day. and one of the does is fostering another set of babies because one of the does milk dried up. it depends on the rabbit. so the story about you putting another rabbit in with them is not right. unless you mean a full grown rabbit in that case yes they might because they dont know if the new bunny will do their babies harm or not.

When can you move newborn mice into a new cage?
Once the babies are born, allow the mother at least 3 days alone with them, without being disturbed. This allows mum to become familiar with the babies. Then, providing mum doesn't mind you coming near the babies, you should move all the babies & the entire nest into a new cage at once. Make sure to place some old bedding in the new cage, so as to lessen the chances mum will reject the babies.
