Record keeping is essential if you decide to breed rabbits. Whether you’re breeding pet rabbits or meat rabbits, you have to keep track of your rabbit herd. This free printable rabbit breeding log is here to help you track your does’ performance and your kits’ parentage without complicated spreadsheets. It’s available in a “cute” version with colors and some bunny clipart as well as a more minimalistic black and white version. I hope it serves you well!

This post is not a guide on breeding rabbits. If you want to know more about humanly raising healthy, happy bunnies, I highly recommend the book Raising Pastured Rabbits for Meat. It’s a fresh, modern book with a wholistic approach to rabbit management and health. (It also has great photos, which I find very helpful.)

Yes, I really do own this book – I didn’t just pull the recommendation off an Amazon search. It’s my go-to reference for rabbit management.
If possible, I recommend printing this rabbit breeding log on a laser printer or keeping it in a page protector when it’s not in use. Ink jet ink runs and bleeds when it’s wet. Chances are good that you’ll eventually get damp hands or drips on this page as you use it. Make sure to protect your records! I prefer heavy duty “secure” page protectors with a little flap that prevents pages from accidentally sliding out.
- Keep contents secure in the protective sleeve with convenient top flap; perfect for holding nonstandard size papers and important items
- Get a crisp, clear view of the contents of your documents with diamond clear page protectors featuring a polished finish for high clarity
- Ensure your documents stay protected with long-lasting super heavyweight sheet protectors for all of your frequently referenced items
You will probably want to use an archival pen that doesn’t fade or bleed so you don’t lose irreplaceable breeding information. I personally use Sakura Pigma Micron pens for most of my record keeping. A fine tip Sharpie works, too.
- Pigma micron blister card ink pen
- Experience smooth, skip-free writing and crisp ink colors that leave consistent lettering and lines every time
- Nib sizes for precise line width are approximately 0.25mm, 0.35mm and 0.45mm
This rabbit breeding log contains space for all your vital information:
- Date bred
- Date to place nest box (28 days after breeding)
- Expected kindle date (30 days after breeding)
- Actual kindle date
- Number born
- Number weened
There are two versions: a “cute” one with different colors on each column header row and a black and white version. They are the same, apart from the colors.
You may want to keep track of your breedings chronologically for your entire herd, or you may want to have a dedicated sheet for each doe. The choice is yours!
