I thought I'd share what a normal breeding OUTSIDE the bucks cage would look like.
First complete a health check. Clean eyes, ears, nose, vent/penis. No matting of front paws or groin region. Nothing that was missed in daily checks. You want rabbits that are both in excellent health (minus any moulting issues). Wafer bucked a bit when I checked her vent which is a signal that she was ready to bred. I figured she would as she's been temperamental that last few days which is how her mom would get as well. Wafer is a flemish giant cross.
Red Max is kept in a standard cage, adding a big doe like Wafer means that the cage is a wee bit cramped so Red Max and his date come outside the cage to make each others acquaintance.
Here they say hi to each other in bunny language. Note the ears are pricked forward for Max and the head is lower for Wafer. Her ears aren't flat back like she's scared or unhappy, just a young doe saying hi to a mature buck.
NOTE: the tail flaps (just like her momma's does when she's in the mood) Bright expression, ears forward.. not the frightened look of a young doe looking for the quickest way out of dodge.
NOTE: the lowered head, the NOT flattened to the body ears, the flat look with her legs back and not tucked under. Ears flat to the body, low grunts and legs tucked under is a frightened doe in no mood to breed (generally speaking). Some does have ODD body language.
That's how I do an out of the cage breeding. It works for me. :)
