Baby Bunnies Dying Within a Few Days of Birth.
Lost 9 Litters So Far. Please help!
I have lost 9 litters of bunnies.
They almost always die within 24 hours of being born, the longest lasted 5 days.
It's 6 different does, and 1 of them had 5 successful litters before now.
They aren't getting cold and they had plenty of milk in their bellies, yet they all die suddenly at the same time.
I noticed that after they die they feel wet of damp, yet no water could have been spilled on them, and my oldest doe never pees in her box, especially if she has babies.
All the does are perfectly healthy. I didn't have this problem until after I had got 6 new show rabbits which, after a few months of having them several of them suddenly looked sunk in higher up close to their back in front of their legs and within a week or 2 they shriveled up to nothing and died even though they never stopped eating or drinking.
No other rabbits showed any symptoms and now I keep losing babies.
Please help I have no idea whats going on with them!
