Do Rabbits Mate for Life?

How many times does a rabbit mate?

Although a single mating is often sufficient stimulus to stimulate ovulation, breeders often allow mating to occur several times over a 30-minute period before returning the doe to her enclosure. Despite her fecundity, the doe should have no more than three litters in one year (Richardson 2000).

Do male and female rabbits stay together?

Rabbit pairings. Rabbits can live happily in male/female, female/female, male/male pairings and larger mixed groups. However, the most natural and therefore easiest pairing is male/female. In the wild, rabbits tend to live in male/female pairs and will sometimes remain partnered for life.
