baby rabbits

Bessemer, AL(Zone 8b)

my doe had 6 babies during the night and wants nothing to do with them. has anyone ever hand raised a newborn rabbit? any help would be appreciated

First, be SURE that she isn't feeding them. Rabbits send most of the day away from their young.

today she has made them a nest of hair and hay. they are warm, and thier bellies feel full, so hopefully she has fed them.
