    Well I got home from work today and went out to check the rabbits and my pregnant doe had a nice nest built and pulled some hair and was bleeding a little bit. That was at 2 she still hasn't kindled yet but she don't seem to be distressed.
    So hopefully when I get up in the morning I'll have more little rabbits.

    Breeding the florida whites was a breeze but on the other hand trying to breed my netherland dwarfs it's a chore and they do all the work

    Well so far nothing today the doe seems fine she's eating and drinking no more bleeding. So I don't know I know according to my calendar that I wasn't expecting any kits till tomorrow or Friday and with her other litter she had them exactly on day 31 which is Friday I can feel the kits moving around inside her. And when she sits still you can see them moving around. So I don't know I guess maybe yesterday was just a false start.
    I'm gonna keep an eye on her checking every couple of hours to make sure she still seems good as best I can without stressing her too much.

    Hope the kindling goes well. Is this her first litter? Most false starts or other things like it happen in first litters, not later litters.
