Roughly, how long does a moult last?

Does it have like a specific amount of time?


Ogs is moulting like maaaad. Im helping him along and brushing/plucking every day but its ever lasting I swear! :shock:

Being quite new to the bunny world I can't answer your question, but I think it might vary quite considerable from bunny to bunny. Compared to other bunnies I've read about on here, Spenser's first moult wasn't too bad at all - and he's a fairly large and quite long-haired rabbit! I was also qite surprised he didn't lose a bit of fur earlier in the summer when it was really far too warm (even in Scotland) for my poor boy. Hope a moulting expert comes on soon to answer your question. :wave:

My three have been moulting for about 8 weeks now and I would say they have just about finished shedding fur. Tilly is very short haired and doesn't moult much, but Peter and Murphy looked proper little ragamuffins for a while.:)

I think it varies. My lops have taken much longer to moult than Nutmeg and Smudge just seems to moult continuously.

I spose it looks worse 'cos Ogs has never had a proper moult which is odd.
He looks like a right scruffter - thanks everyone x
