Looks like a mismarked Tri dutch. Where did you get her from? At 7 weeks old she should still be with the breeder and be in with her brothers and sisters getting used to coming away from Mum. No way she should be in a completely new enviorment! :(

she was from somebody who didn't want her. i was told shes weaned shes eating drinking ok.

I'm afraid her being weaned is beside the point. Rabbits have very delicate and fragile digestive systems.

I've been breeding for 13 years, and theres no way i would ever let anything leave here before 10 weeks old.

At 7 weeks I take Mum away from babies and leave them in the hutch they're used to minimise the stress.
At 8 weeks I split them into single sex groups in new hutches.
At 9 weeks I put them into individual hutches.
At 10 weeks I rehome them.

This way the babies have gradually been seperated and hopefully will be more prepared for the stresses of a completely new home. Sometimes this still doesn't work - I lost a 10 week old a few months ago due to the stress of being seperated from his brother :cry:

Please keep a very close eye on your rabbit and make sure she has access to plenty of hay to keep her guts moving. And please don't consider having another rabbit this young in the future, insist on waiting til 10 weeks.

Don't worry about it, it's not your fault.
We "trust" breeders to give us the correct information when we first start keeping bunnies, If you had known about this I'm sure you would have told the breeder you would wait a while longer. :p

Oh I'm not blaming you!! Its the breeder you bought her from - makes me so cross that there are irresponsible breeders out there that let them go too early. :censored: At least you now know for next time.

awwww she looks quite like teegs did as a baby (might be because she is a harlequin though) he is a lionhead cross http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c134/K9saxo/Tikkilook.jpg

shes a cutie!

Very cute. I'd say she's got harlequin markings, but is probably a cross breed, why not ask the lady what breed the parents are?
