Do Rabbits Get Pregnant Every Time They Mate?

How long do rabbits have to mate to get pregnant?

A rabbit may normally start breeding at the age of 6 months for the small to medium size breeds and 8 to 9 months for the heavy breeds. The gestation period (time between breeding and kindling) is 31 days. After the doe has kindled, I normally re-breed her at 6 weeks and wean the litter at 5-7 weeks.

Will a pregnant rabbit still mate?

How many times do rabbits mate a day?

When the male is old enough, it can be used daily for extended periods of time. An older male can be used 5 -7 times per day, after which a 5 – 7 day rest period must follow in order for the rabbit to rest and be able to successfully mate in the future.
