I have been asked if one of my baby rabbits could be used for a story time. The babies will be 4 weeks old at that time. Is it safe to temporarily remove a kit from the litter and return it soon after or will the mother kill it?
In my experience it is safe, at 4 weeks old they are not quite small, and the mother never rejected them even though we pick up the babies almost daily.
