    the kits seem ok but dont have a very round tum although there not wrinkly so im not sure if she is feeding them for long enough or if she has fed last night at all.
    if tomoro they are looking more wrinkly i will have to take them out and try to hand rear.
    come on mid get ya boobies out and fed young lady!!

    Only step in if you are 110% sure they are not being fed as handreared rabbits have a very poor survival rate.
    I would think if they are all still alive after this time she must have some milk or you would have some dying by now.
    If you are in any doubt the best time to check them is early morning to see if they are warm and round bellied.
    I would weigh them if yo uare in any doubt to double check before trying to handrear.

    they seem roundish today and all still alive so looking good. i think itc cos there so tiny (alot smaller than lilys litters) that maybe there not suckling as well as they should be at mo.
