I've raised rabbits since I was about 6, so if you ever need any advice feel free to pm me!
We have had kits being born in 20 degree weather, so they should be fine. (I was assumung the cage is outdoors forthe following sentance) We usually put a nseting boz in the cage and put plenty of straw and/or wood shavings in it. Then the doe will create her own nest. The mother usually we be very vigilant abot keeping the kits covered in cold weather. If it gets really cold or windy, try putting a towel/blanket over the front of the cage. Then their would still be air flow from the bottom- if wire floor-. Just make sure to not touch the kits! I have lost a litter from touching them too soon. I hope everything goes well!! I recently just lost a Dutch, Gracie, from a pregnancy complication. She gave birth to two premature kits on my lap, then she died the next morning:(
Horses aren't just a pleasure, they are an escape from all evils of mankind.
