A few weeks ago, we bred our rabbits again. Stephan said Licorice didn’t complain as much this time as she did last time; she seemed more receptive to Bear. So perhaps this time there will be babies.
Saturday morning I put the nest box in her cage. Assuming a 28 day gestation period, she should give birth on Thursday, November 15, and you’re supposed to put the nest box in the cage a few days before so the doe can get ready. When I checked on the rabbits later in the day, Licorice was inside the nest box. I don’t remember seeing her get inside it last time we tried to breed her. In fact, last time, she seemed irked by it being in there with her. She kept pushing it around the cage.
So, we’ll see. If there are no babies, we’ll be eating rabbit for Thanksgiving dinner.
