The mother rabbit will only feed twice a day and you will not see her with the kits. Feedings are usually done midle of the night to early mornings. It is not uncommon for the babies to move around. I would just keep an eye on the nest to be sure that no animal is bothering the Kits. Some wild rabbits will build the nest out in the open. If you do see a baby that has moved far from the nest, you can gently put it back into the nest. It is an old wives tale that the mother will not care for them if they are touched by a human. The big key here will be to keep anyone from taking a baby and think they can raise it. Wild rabbits are comepletely different than domestic Rabbits in care, so it is best to let the Doe care for her young.
