Pet bunny had babies
My bunny had one baby this morning and has showed no interest in it. I'm worried she wont feed it - how do I know when to step in and how long to wait for her to feed on her own?

using my mothers log in info to post this question

If the mother refuses to feed him, could be that the baby is not healthy...sounds mean but that is just their nature, give them sometime and see what happens. If you touch the baby she will smell like you and the mom will just kill him. when I was a kid we had rabbits and the very last time our female gave birth most of the babies were sick and she threw them out of the nest and killed a couple too.

if you touch the baby, rub your hands on their food before doing so, to make sure your smell is not left on him.

Is there a pet store you might feel comfortable in calling? they may be able to offer some advice??

I'd contact your vet.
