Willows my first girl rabbit. So I was just wondering what age should I expect her to get her hormones? She was 9 weeks yesterday but what age should she start getting territoial and that?

Also what age can she get speyed at? (shes a flemish giant) And will speying stop her from finishing growing or will it have no effect?

How do you mean 'stop her fininshing' ? I dont understand that bit :wave:

some females, they say 6 months, some say once they reach a certain weight.

It can vary so much, so i'd ask a rabbit savvy vet when they'd be happy to spay her :wave:

Hormones vary from rabbit to rabbit also, so its difficult to say.

Since your girly is a Flemish Giant, the spaying will be 6months+ this is because the bun is bigger and the sexual organs don't develop fast enough; so a longer wait is necessary. xx
