    And i'll have to find out when they treat the water...that could be it because there are random times that none of my rabbits will drink their water.

    Sorry you lost another. Not sure why... I occasionally get one that fades quickly post weaning... I assume it's generally the stress of weaning and a poor immune system.
    I had one 2 weeks ago whom was down suddenly. I separated her from her 2 sisters. Fully expecting her to pass. She couldn't even swallow. She has made a full recovery.... I suspect her sire had molar problems which makes it hard to drink from a water bottle, we'll be experimenting with that soon.

    Update!
    The 3 dwarf kits are all doing so well! Even the blue girl i plan on keeping. I thought for sure she was a goner but after syringing her extra-strength probiotic/electrolyte water she perked right up :highfive:
    Looks like they're gonna be okay :weee
    Thanks again everyone for your help and advice.

    I wonder if it is the heat. A thousand years ago, when I had bunnies, I quit breeding in the summer because of the heat, then started back up in mid to late September.

    Just imagine yourself fat and pregnant, wrapped up in a fur coat. ;)

    You are a very good bunny Mom. You are learning as you go. No one is born knowing everything, you have to learn. I feel like a lousy sheep Mom sometimes. Sometimes I do my best, but that isn't enough.

    101 degrees today. I keep checking water. The sheep are cool in their barn or under the huge cedar tree in the lot. No matter what I do, there is mortality. We do the best we can. We celebrate our success and cry on our failures. Through it all, we learn.
