At what age are rabbits fully grown? We have a dutch cross, we don't know what he is crossed with. We were told he wouldn't grow much bigger but the vet said she thinks 'he's going to be one big bunny'.

The photo below was taken at 9 weeks.

Many thanks, Anna

They are fully grown by about 9 months old. :) larger breeds grow for longer ;)

He's my first rabbit so I just took their word for it when they said he wont grow much bigger (we got him from a children's farm). Having said that I never had a preference for what size rabbit we had so am now rather looking forward to seeing just how big he will grow :) He is a very friendly little boy & really loves to play. The children have great fun making him things to play with out of cardboard boxes, tubes & hay. He's 4 months old now & is being nutered on Monday.

He looks big but his face is kind of "childish" Somehow I just knew he wasn't fully grown..
Medium breeds grow to about 8 months or more.

The bug has hit you too! :D Next you'll be having a 'friend' for your bun then you'll think about having another pair because they look so cute in the rabbits in need section... There is no escaping this disease. :lol:
