Crash Bunny is 7 months old and he weighs 2.3 kg, he is a cross breed/bunny mongrel :lol::love:

So, just curious about everyone elses bunnies?


I guess I'm wondering whether he is a good weight too but hard to know.

P.S... Lady bunnies, sorry for asking such a delicate question! ;)

From left to right we have my boy Joey who is currently 2.5 k & 5 years old , Boo his first wife is currently 2.6k (:oops: vet says she is a tad porky). She was rescued as stray & estimated to be 3 years, my B&W bun is Mouse. She is a very long bunny & my slimmest at 2.8k. We dont know her real age but have decided / guesstimated she is coming up to 5 years :love:

But as you know breed, age etc is no decent guide. I'm terrible - I think my rabbits are skinny whereas I know they aren't really. I like to clock the wight at the vets, always ask their opinion on weight & condition & use that as a guide

Its a good guide, I've seen similar before. See I don't think Mouse's rump is rounded but vets (savvy & specialist) all say her weight is good. She has a massive dewlap which makes her look bigger than she is

After some fiddling around with a treat...

I can easily feel his spine and ribs.. I dont have a clue how a bunny bum can be flat... And hes got space under him when he hops around, not a big tummy


He seems normal to me... I think..?

Petra won't let me weigh her. I think she has a complex from this thread. She's currently comfort eating and shouting "you made me do this" [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]

Hmm let's see:

Takumi: 1.1kg, mini rhinelander - ideal weight
Persephone: 1.5kg, mini rex - ideal weight
Elphie: 1.8kg, dwarf lop - underweight
Apollo: 1.8kg, dutch cross - ideal weight
Helios: 2.4kg, standard rex - overweight
Selene: 2.3kg, standard rex - overweight
Morning: 2.3kg, crossbreed - ideal weight (vet says she's a perfect looking rabbit in every way!)
River: 2.3kg, crossbreed - ideal weight
Athena: 2.2kg, lionhead (large) - ideal weight

A bit all over the place, tbh. Helios & Selene have lost weight since I've had them, but I also think they steal Elphie's food. Elphie shrank down to 1.4kg but she's now gaining slowly. These rabbits. :roll:

Boots (medium sized lop) weighs 2kg, he had his booster the other day and the vet said he was an ideal weight :thumb:

Crash looks pretty healthy from what I see on the photos. That guide is fairly good too :thumb:

Hector and his weight won't be helpful. Just short of 9kg (conti) :lol:

Shayne, your bun looks very healthy to me :)

Lupin, my mini rex, is ideal weight at 1.6kg.

Tanglefoot, my Continental Giant, is also ideal weight at 3.5kg... at 4 months ��

This is so odd, we were just talking about bunny weight! Mum has only just started touching the rabbit (after 7 years...) but she doesn't like that you can feel his spine!

My bun's a pet shop mutt, he's about 2.4kg. I think he may have some lionhead in him, as his 'neck fluff' is very light and quite long, but I honestly have no idea! I got him before I knew anything much about rabbits to be honest, but he's taught me a lot and I wouldn't change him for the world! He slipped down to 2.37kg after his recent bout of stasis, but he's put the weight back on well and is back to 'normal' :)

I had them both weighed at the vets on tues. Ruby is 2.4 and Benny 2.6 - I think they may be a tab overweight but the vet said she though they were just very healthy (i.e very well fed!). Benny is a cross - lionhead/alaska and Ruby is an Alaska.

Have started hiding pellets among the hay. They act like they are on starvation rations when I feed them and both come barrelling into the main hutch and up the stairs like a pair of baby elephants when they hear the food bag!

Not sure about the girls but Ted was weighed when he was castrated a month ago, he is 4kg
