    Hi, I haven't been on for quite a while but I am hoping someone will give me advice.
    My female rabbit is now 10 months, and hasn't been spayed yet. (the reason being she was very small and I wanted her to be bigger before she had the operation, also because it was cold I wanted it to be warmer.) We moved them both from the conservatory into a shed, and straight away Leuki starting to pull her hair out, and I've noticed she has made a nest in one of her litter trays. (she is definately not pregnant so it is a phantom pregnancy.)
    Anyway my question is should I move the nest she has made? Would that upset her and make her pull more hair out? I was going to book her in to be spayed for next week anyway,(very nervous!) but i'm not sure if I should leave it there for that long.
    Any advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks, Ameenah

    If my girls have a phantom I always take the nest away, they dont tend to make another one. I dunno what other people reccomend tho :)

    When my girls started having phantoms I moved the nest, it didn't seem to bother them :thumbup:

    Thankyou for replying. I will move it in a bit then, I was just worried she would start all over and pull all her hair out again!
