Congrats on your new litter :) You can actually and should check the babies daily. Rub your hands all over momma first as this way her scent will be transfered to the little ones. :) Rabbits don't normally nurse all day long like dogs and cats do. They feed just a few times per day so watch weight gains closely. You should check on the babies every few hours as the mom's don't always go to retrieve them if they get out of the nest. It can be very dangerous for these babies to get a chill. You can remove the momma from the babies at about 7 weeks old. Yes, they will be nibbling on "foods" at about 4 weeks, but they are not done nursing until that time (7 weeks). They should be about 12 weeks before you send them to their new homes if that is what you are going to do. :) Good luck with your litter :)
I was just wondering how your babies are doing :)
