    I know a doe can get pregnant the same day she kindles, but how often do you rabbit people recommend breeding so she isn't too stressed?

    There are alot of different schools of thought on this. If you read the ARBA guide it says wait till kits are 4 weeks old, that gives her 2 weeks off. I personally only breed every few months depending on if I can sell the kits or not. I know people that do breed back to back- I just was never very fond of it.

    OK, thanks! I think I'll try waiting a month and seeing how they handle it.

    i breed a week after the kits are taken off if she's in acceptable condition. if you dont feed right they wont keep weight on
