Weird Doe Behaviour

Aggressive Rabbit Behaviour
My doe 'Poppy' has been behaving strangely and out of her usual character.
She had 2 kits last week (8 days old) and all is going well there.
She remained sweet and approachable until today.
When I went to drop her some greens into her cage (indoors), she went for me. Actually charged to bite me. Then I dropped the greens in and she charged at those, I went to repeat giving her some talking soothingly and again she went for me.
It's so not like her, she's 6 months old, and this was her first kittling. She's been so tolerant of me around them, she actually doesn't bat an eyelid if I check them.
So what's with this aggression?
I've let her out for a run around and she's calm and placid again.
What could have caused her outburst of biting?
