I have 2 does and one buck, both does are pregnant and I want to put them together with their kits. I have 1 huge cage because I want to put the baby rabbits in there with their moms. Will that be okay or will they kill the kits? One of the does is 6 days behind the other.

I am going to separate them, for when they give birth and build nests, for two weeks. After that, will it be okay to put the kits and their moms together?


No, Rabbits are very territorial. Doe rabbits even more so then bucks. Each doe wants to have a safe place to have her kits. If you try to put both does together when they are pregnant or have young kits it will likely be a huge battle. The does will fight each other. I don't know what they will will do to the kits, but it won't be good.
