Rabbit Pregnancy & Gestation Table

The pregnancy usually lasts for 28-35 days but 90% of it given birth after 31 or 32 days. The litter is usually born at night, though you may notice the Doe pulling her fur out during the day. Most books say that rabbits build a nest 1 week before the litter is due but I find that they build it the same day the young are born.
If you see your Doe building a nest (gathering hay/straw and pulling out her fur) then make sure you provide her with extra materials to help build the nest. Don’t be alarmed if the Doe pulls fur from other rabbits she lives with. They don’t seem to mind too much and it may be because she doesn’t have enough of her own.
You need to feed her twice as much food as you would normally and this needs increasing to three times as much when suckling a whole litter of kittens.

This is a rabbit gestation chart. Find the date your rabbit was bred and look in the next column to the right to see what day your rabbit will be due.
