I have never heard of evicting kits from the nest. Then, I am not a breeder and only have experience with rescue buns. As far as I know they should have access to a safe zone up until they wean, once they are bigger you can replace the nesting area if it is too small with a bigger box and soft bedding however I would not remove them from their nursery where mum is accustomed to feeding them. They need safe haven to snuggle in, they are babies for a long time and need the security, after 8-12 weeks they will form personalities, some will lose bonds, all will need to be sexed and sorted prior to 16 weeks unless you want ore little oopsies.
