Can a baby bunny go from a uppy to a loppy ?

Glad Bailey is on the mend.

Hope then all is fine. Mind you in his pic on your signature he looks half way between uppy and loppy. How are his ears now ?

Uppy (or on the verge of uppy!) ears go floppy when its hot, as blood goes into the ears to cool the bunnt down as they have a large surface area :wave:

That's probably why when your bunny was inside the ears were floppier, and if they're outside where it's cooler they'll be up. Over summer they flop or 'helicopter' again :)

I took Mango at 7 1/2 weeks and he had uppy ears, I knew he was going to be a lop, but his ears didn't both lop properly until he was 12 weeks old.
