I've never done it before. Faye (Cottonmather) is the best person to ask.

I've only sexed piggies before - but I'd be more that happy to give it a go if no-one else can :wave:

I can sex adult buns, but don't have much experience with babies :(

What about taking them to Amanda at Bramcote Rescue to get her to sex them...she's been doing it for 20-odd years?

You're probably best to wait until they're about 6 weeks old.

Most vets aren't very good at sexing babies because they don't tend to see many of them.

Well i keep looking and they all still look the same what are the chances of them being all the same sex

It's perfectly reasonable that they could all be the same sex...however baby buns 'bits' DO look the same to the untrained eye...so please get an opinion from an experienced person.

Sazzy, could your vet not sex buns? a rabbit savvy one... Its easier to sex buns at around 8 weeks old.

Sorry to Faye - i thought you would be an expert with all the bunnies you have there!! But then I suppose they come to you already sexed.

Hi, if you pm with your whereabouts in Nottingham I should be able to help you if you're still stuck. I'm available on Sunday :)

Yes folks....I work for PAH (not the Notts stores) and I'm pretty good at sexing rabbits ;)

I won't guarantee the sex of a baby until 8 weeks..as can be difficult and even our vets get it wrong ...

If someone comes into store and asks for us to sex their rabbits for them, we'll do them at about 5 weeks, make a note of it for the owner and then get them to come back at 8 weeks for a double check.

My vet sexed one of Ferris's babies wrongly at about 6 weeks old...their bits do look remarkably alike at that age.

It was a real shame because I would have kept the boy if I'd known he was the only one in the litter :(

Gets easier as they get older.

I have managed to be correct with two litters so far...which must have been a miracle :lol:
