<p><strong><u>Dos in Breeding Rabbits:</u></strong></p>
<p>1. DO check the size and age of your doe and buck. Small-sized does
are ready for breeding at 5 months old and bucks at 6 months old. Medium-
sized does are set for breeding at 6 months and bucks at 7 months old.
Large-sized does are good for breeding at 8 months old and bucks at 9
months old.</p>
<p>2. DO keep a calendar of the day the doe bred the buck. Check if she's
pregnant ten to fifteen days after breeding. To know if she is pregnant,
nudge the lower abdomen of the doe using your thumb and check out its
nodules. If they are as big as a marble, more often than not, she is
pregnant.</p>
<p>3. DO put a box on the cage of the doe on the 29th day after breeding.
On the 31st day, kindling starts.</p>
<p><strong><u>Don'ts in Breeding Rabbits:</u></strong></p>
<p>1. DON'T mate rabbits of different breeds.</p>
<p>2. DON'T keep more than one rabbit in a cage. Rabbits mature better
alone than with others.</p>
<p>3. DON'T let the rabbits breed when they have loose stools or
diarrhea. They have to be treated first. Also check their genitals. See
if they have other defects.</p>
<p>4. DON'T bring the buck to the doe's cage. He will lose interest in
mating. Keep them together for one day to increase number of
offspring.</p>
<p>Â </p>
<p>Always remember these simple things. If you want to have healthier
bunnies to take care of, take note of the <strong>dos and don'ts in
breeding rabbits.</strong></p>                <!--INFOLINKS_OFF-->
