During puberty the rabbit is aggressive, "marks" the territory, digs, tries to build a nest, scatters everything around.

The female can have a false pregnancy (irrespective of, whether there was a sexual contact or not). She starts dragging hay for a nest and to tear up from herself wool. Stop any attempt of a female to build a nest. Give it more chance to take a walk and occupy it with games.
