Why rabbits throw the children

The doe-rabbit can throw posterity because of mastitis, the lowered air temperature indoors, conditions of violent hunting, a stress, etc. In this case it is possible to place posterity to other doe-rabbit or to bring up artificially.

For what reasons can the female refuse the krolchat? Actually much can affect her desire and unwillingness to bring up posterity. Most often the doe-rabbit throws the children because of inflammation of mammary glands and a condition of violent hunting.

Main reasons for refusal of feeding - besides mastitis and a condition of violent hunting, it is the lowered air temperature indoors; - insufficient or bad feeding; - unsatisfactory condition of the room on sanitary standards: dirt, presence of parasites, etc.; - problems in a metabolism; - stress.
