    THANK YOU! this is such a great idea that would make rabbit farming used so much more in the game because people can get the meat easier. I'm giving this an upvote

    It makes sense.

    I agree with this so much but I think these types of different breeding mechanics in which multiple babies are bred should also apply to other animals.

    I think pigs should also have a few more babies but not as many as rabbits

    More mobs should have a similar mechanic. they can give birth to 2-3 instead of only 1 baby. Also goats should have as mush as 5-6 and not above that cause it whould make such farms very OP.

    This would be useful now that bundles are crafted with rabbit hides.

    When developer Ryan Holtz added the rabbits, he said on Twitter that he wanted them to breed rapidly. If I remember correctly, he had the idea of making them breed without player interaction. That obviously would've caused the Minecraft world to become filled with rabbits like Australia, and he didn't implement his idea. But back then I thought "why don't you make them give birth to multiple babies?". I never suggested it, but now years later, the goats made me think about this again. Hopefully Mojang will add this, especially since the bundles add a functionality to rabbit hides!

    This would also be great for making bundles since they are made with rabbit hides, so this would be a great mechanic for 1.17

    I'd go even further and make it so rabbits can breed without the help of a player.

    This should be applied to many other mobs as well. Animals tend to have higher amounts of litters depending on the species. Rabbits having some of the highest while some mammals like dolphins almost always having just 1. Cows, pigs, and chickens should also have this chance to produce more.

    Melly DowThat sounds interesting. It could affect which farms people would make, if for example pigs had larger litters. There could be problems though if you had some kind of mega farms. Maybe they would end up being too efficient, if more animals did this.

    They actually removed the goat breeding mechanic! I hope they add it for rabbits though. :(

    I think rabbits should have this INSTEAD of goats. It makes more sense. Goats have enough to make them unique already with their high jump and ramming attack. Rabbits... jump? They need something more.

    it is quite a realistic conception for rabbits

    Saying "because they're rabbits" is really all the justification this post needs.

    Good idea! This makes perfect sense.

    Annoying but realistic idea: rabbits breed on their own without incentive.

    IRL Minecraft is something the Goats, turtles, foxes, chickens, pandas, parrots, and fish do so well! the rabbit is already part of the Minecraft "food chain" and I think it should multiply like in real life

    Rabbits are good at breeding.

    This would be useful, as rabbit farming might become more popular, because bundles need rabbit hides to craft.
