Hello,

I started raising New Zealand Rabbits (for meat). My doe is on her 2nd litter. Only one kit survived from the 1st litter of 6 (the surviving one has been weaned and doing very well), and there are 2 remaining from the 2nd litter of 7.

I have noticed some of the dead kits have nose bleeds (2 out of 4 dead ones had this). Have other rabbit raisers experienced this problem? The kits are all inside the wooden nest box that is filled with fur and hay. I check up on them periodically, they are all fine before bed, and when I check in the morning, I find dead ones in the box

Please help, the kits are dying on me after a couple of days of being born!
