Rabbits do not lay eggs, but rather give live birth. Pregnancy in rabbits lasts 31 days, with a female rabbit, known as a doe, giving birth to up to 12 babies at one time and possessing the capability to get pregnant again just a few days later.
Unlike other animals, the female rabbit does not have to come into heat in order to breed, but instead accepts the male any time of year. Rabbits reach breeding age by 6 months after birth, and a female can breed until she is 4 years old. Male rabbits are fertile until they are 7 years old.
