How to Wean Rabbits

    • 1). Watch the litter carefully as the kits mature. Notice which kit is the runt --- the kit not getting a lot of feeding time and attention. It is the smallest and weakest of the litter.

    • 2). Notice when the litter begins to irritate the doe. Wean the kits when the doe starts nipping at them or chasing them around the hutch.

    • 3). Remove the doe and the runt from the hutch and place them into another hutch.

    • 4). Take the runt away from the doe after 24 to 48 hours and return it to the rest of the litter. Keep the litter in the same hutch to eliminate some stress from the weaning process.
