I want to breed my lion head rabbits

by Lisa

I have four double Maine’s lion head rabbits, two males (sharing a hutch), two females (sharing a hutch.

They would’ve been 6 months old in November. I would like to breed them but unsure how, I have read that the female should be taken to the males hutch, but I only have two hutches and was going to mate them both at the same time. Can two pregnant females share the same hutch.

At what age do we separate mother from babies? Is there any advice you can give on how to care for babies, what to feed them and when etc. I do have an indoor hutch, just for when I separate the babies.

Thank you
