Newborn rabbits were kept in beakers in a water-bath at 35 degrees to 36 degrees C. Those born naturally had fed and were returned to the mothers for 10 min each morning to feed; newborn rabbits normally feed only once a day. Those born by induction with oxytocin got only tap water. Blood was taken at birth or at age 24 h from unfed rabbits and at age 48 and 72 h from fed and unfed rabbits. The fed rabbits were starved for 24 h before.
