Different for each bun i believe.

:wave:

Some are born loppy, some do it after a few months etc.

Some have one up one down :roll: Confused!

Mischa was a pet shop bun so was loppy from when I got him. Nutmeg is uppy and Smudge, well Smudge is confused.

But Mini...

Mini is in the middle, as you can see her ears are still a bit pointy, Marsh (right) had fully flopped, Mocha (left) was half and half by that point

9 weeks:

I only have tiny baby pics of Mini cos, erm, we breed Mischa with my friend's doe :oops: I don't like to advertise it :oops: No baby pics of Nutmeg cos she was adult when she came here. Smudge was just a fluff ball as a baby. Got a few of Mischa.

ETA. This is one of the first pics of Mischa. His ears were already completely lopped. This would've been about 9 weeks old I think.

Some bunnies even un-lop themselves - search for Carlo piccies!

Pie's didn't lop until about 6 months ago - when she was about 1 1/2 years old. And even now she can't decide what to do with them! :roll: :lol:
