She's experiencing these symptoms;

Cranky behaviour
Lumpy tummy


And there's this weird one that probably isn't even related, but she keeps digging at her cage, which she's never done before... ever.

If she is pregnant, what do I do!!! albino albino albino

How old is your rabbit? Only rabbits that are 4 -4.5 months old can be sexually active.
Has she come in contact with any bucks lately?
However, false pregnancy is very common in rabbits because of hormonal fluctuations , so it would be best for you to have a quick check-up with your local veterinarian.

The cranky behaviour you have mentioned is associated with rabbit pregnancy, she may growl or get annoyed by your contact.

The digging at the cage is also a symptom of pregnancy, this is the start of nesting, your rabbit may also pull out fur.

This is a lucky occurrence that your are noticing signs, because in some cases, rabbits do not exhibit any symptoms until a few minutes for your rabbit is ready to kindle.

This pregnancy may last for 30-32 days, however when you feel the birthing period is over, or she is simply ready, I recommend going to your vet for help. If you notice she is still pregnant exceeding the time period, the litter may actually be experiencing major health issues, please go to the vet ASAP in this occurrence.

When you have guaranteed and have received a positive result from your veterinarian, please contact me for further assistance. However, if for any reason you cannot go to the clinic at any time during the birthing period, please once again, contact me for further assistance.

Jilly is about 10 months old, I believe. And since she's a family pet I don't really have any control over her, but my younger sister thought it would be a great idea to have Jilly and her friends male rabbit have a playdate and then leave them unattended. I only found out they did this about two hours later...

I'll take her to the veterinarian tomorrow, I'll let you know what happens next. geek geek

She was pregnant and ended up having 6 kits which is an exceptionally large litter for her breed!
