View Full Version : Bunny sexing...

I had a lady phone up today about 2 rabbits I sexed a month ago as boys.

She got 2 rabbits from a pet shop late last year and was told they were both female but...well...I am sure you can guess the rest.

Anyhoo, she bought the litter in to be sexed - 2 boys, 2 girls. She is keeping the girls with mum and the boys with dad for now. She noticed the dad was mounting one of the 'boys' and so this put doubt in her mind.

I checked them again to be sure and I am not sure on the one she is doubting. When I had a look, it initially looked like a 'slit' but as i pushed down a bit further, it looked like a 'hole'. The nurse and vet both had a look also and weren't sure. I have asked to see them again in 2 weeks.

Does anyone know of or have any decent photos of rabbit genitalia I could e-mail her?

Also, can a 3 month old male get pregnant from a 3 month old male whose testicles have not descended?

Thank you in advance!
