View Full Version : Age puzzle.

I recently adopted a bun from a reliable rescue in Chelmsford. The lady told me the bun was around 4 years old. I called her Arwen (she's a dote:)) and went to get her spayed. The vet (also mega-reliable) tells me there is no way this rabbit is 4 years as she is a sexually immature female of about 4 MONTHS. I phone the shelter - she sticks to her guns. I talk to the vet - he's never seen a 4yrs old rabbit with insides like that in the 1000s of spays he's done and is certain the bunny is very young.
My question is this:
Has anybody ever had a mature rabbit spayed (over 9mths) who turned out to have undeveloped sex organs? Could they both be right or do I have to choose?

If she's a rescue, how can they reliably know her age? Surely they can only go on what the previous owner said when they handed her in?

Which rescue is it (PM me if you want) I don't know if any in Chelmsford and I live near :)

Why did the rescue not spay her?

Does the rescue start with the letters "Bla" ?
