Roseatebunny, I believe Tre3Hugger, has the best idea of making the whole cage a nesting area. The shoe box idea was a good thought, but not practical. I have 5 kits, right now, that are about 1 week old and there just moving all over the place and if they were in a shoe box, they would have gotten out from under it, in no time. Looking forward to hearing how it went. I have more due on the June 6th
I am breeding another doe (was allowed to buy one due to poor mother scenario) on July 4. Due Aug 4!

I have put a bit of wood near the door, that will be a bit of a ledge to stop too young babies getting out.
My grandad suggested it and cut it for me.

picture to show wood ledge thing. She can get in and out easily with it.

Awesome! That should work. ;)
