How Many In A Litter Of Rabbits
Rabbits can be prolific breeders. In fact, a mature doe should have at least one litter per year. But how many kits are born in a rabbit litter? Is there an average number of kits born in each kindle (that’s what rabbit litters are called)? What determines the number of rabbits in a litter? And what about multiple-birth litters — do these come along with special risks that you need to protect yourself against? The answers to these questions and more will help you figure out how many kits you want to end up with when your doe gives birth.
The number of rabbits in a litter varies according to the breed.
When it comes to rabbits, a litter is called a kindle. The number of kittens in a litter varies according to the breed. The larger breeds, such as New Zealand Whites and Flemish Giants, tend to have fewer kittens per kindle than smaller breeds like Mini Lops.
The average number of kittens in an outdoor rabbit kindle is 10-12; indoor rabbits typically have just one or two at most.
Generally, the larger the breed, the fewer kits there are in each litter.
In general, the larger the breed of rabbit, the fewer kittens it will have in a litter. Smaller breeds are more likely to have multiple litters per year and as many as 13 kittens per litter. A rabbit’s gestation period is about 30 days, with most rabbits giving birth between January and April.

Outdoor breeds tend to have more in a litter than indoor breeds.
Rabbits are social animals and, in the wild, live in groups called colonies. The only reason rabbits are not solitary is because they are prey animals. They need to keep close to each other for protection.
When you have indoor rabbits that don’t live outside and aren’t allowed to roam free, they will interact with you much more than outdoor rabbits do with each other or even with humans. This means that your indoor rabbit will bond with you more than an outdoor rabbit would bond with its owner or handler.
In addition, since most rabbit owners feed their rabbits pellets (which contain all the nutrition a rabbit needs), there’s no need for territorial behavior between members of a litter eating from one bowl—so unlike many other species of animals (including cats), there’s no reason why your pet bunnies should fight over food!
If you would like to have more rabbits in your litter, make sure that you do not take out any of the kits until after her first nursing.
If you would like to have more rabbits in your litter, make sure that you do not take out any of the kits until after her first nursing. If you take out the kits before they are weaned, she may not be able to care for them properly and may reject them or abandon them entirely.

A rabbit litter is called a kindle. A kindle can contain up to 14 kits, but it’s rare for there to be that many in one litter. A single kit or group of kits is called a nestling; a nestling can also be referred to as a nestling kit or nestling kit(s).
The number of rabbits in a litter is dependent on many factors. The breed and size are important considerations, as well as the age of the mother rabbit when she conceives and delivers her babies. If you have any questions about how to increase your chances of having more kits or caring for them properly after birth, talk with your veterinarian or an experienced breeder.
