Build a nestbox, fill with hay, rip her fur out to line the nest, put kits inside. She should do the rest.

New first time moms don't always use the nest.
Put fur and kits in the nest. Then wait.

Rabbits pull fur from under their neck. Pull some, put in the nest box, put the babies in the box and she should be ok. It’s not unusual for new mothers to give birth outside of the nest box. Sometimes they can drag a baby out of the box, still nursing, when she jumps out of the box.

Let us know how she does!

Hay is more natural, shavings do not allow them to make a nest like in "nature"; hay allows them to make a nest where they can "hide them" better... I would try some hay so make more of a hole with the fur in it....

Also, rabbits only feed twice a day, usually at dawn and dusk. The rest of the time she's going to stay away from the box- that way she won't draw predators to the babies. You dont want to see her in there all the time, as then she'll mess on them or squish them. She should only go in to feed. If the babies have full, round bellies, she's feeding them. (and given that they're 3 days old and still ok, I'd hazard a guess she is feeding them). New mommas sometimes struggle a little, but usually do a ton better the next time around.

oh also, momma rabbits dont move their babies like cats. So if she accidentally drags one out, or has one on the wire, she can't put it back. So definitely warm it up and tuck it back in the nest.

It looks so interesting as I noticed the bellies are popping up which means she feeds them. I now only check to see their bellies protrude. Now they are 7 days old. Thank you for all your guide and supports.
