Found 5 dead kits this morning from my 1 year old American Chinchilla. She seems to be in good condition. From what I am reading it would be best to do it within 3 days or so. My plan is to do it tomorrow (1 day after). Is this reasonable? Anyone have any experience with this? Thanks!

Shouldn't be a problem if she's in condition. Bunnies can be rebred the moment they give birth, although with a doe raising babies while gestating more of them, it's really hard on the doe. In this case, she's not raising babies, so shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks! Rebred her that day
