Their housing matters a lot. To avoid coccidiosis, which is an important cause of death in young rabbits, you'll have to use wire mesh floor. You can also give them preventive dossage of coccidiosis drugs like sulfaquinoxaline.

Another thing to consider is temperature. You must keep baby rabbits warm or else they will all die. To do this, use a nest box. Put the nest box into the rabbit cage before the doe give birth and she'll deliver in the box. If you're a registered member of farmers joint, you can download this ebook about rabbits, snails etc.

Don't change feed suddenly to avoid diarhea. Don't feed food that are high in fermentable carbohydrate to avoid bloating and death. Eg corn, carrot, fruits, sugar cane etc.
