Question by : has anyone bred rabbits before?
ive done lots of research but i would prefer no websites- i really need personal experience.
i just have a few Q’s
1- when can you take the mums fur off the baby bunnies, mine are 8 days old now and the fur keeps coming off them, so i dont know if they are slowly not needing it now they’re getting fur, are they getting too hot?
2. is it six or 8 weeks you can take them away from their mothers?
3. how do you tell which sex is which and when? do you have to take them to a pet shop or vet to be able to tell?
thanks 10 points to the most detailed and thorough answer!
no thats not what i meant about the fur!
the mum pulls her fur off and puts it on the babies at birth, but now the babies are wriggling out of the fur and im thinking maybe they are to hot under it? and wasn’t sure whether to put it back over them or just leave it.
Answer by chabang!
you dont take the fur off the baby bunnies ! let their hair grow out and if it falls out then let it be, its normal.
it should be about 8 weeks until you keep them away from their mothers, unless they stop eating then that means they need more milk from their mommy.
you cant tell what they are at a young age, unles theyre atleast 3 months old, but sometimes you cant tell if its a male even though it is.then tahst when you get it checked out at the vet
