    I have an opal mini lop & he has got more grey as he's got older (he's now 6 months old) so I think it is normal.

    Luna was mostly white when I got her, but now she is growing her winter coat and has a lot more grey in it.

    Yes its normal they change their fur with the seasons. So in the Summer they are a lighter colour and as winter draws in they go a bit darker. Its their natural camoflage from predators. Darcy has always done this every season...I'm looking forward to watching my new babies colours change!

    Apache looks so innocent - pics are so deceiving!!


    RIP Sweet Frasier bun xxx

    Rabbits and hares in areas with a lot of snow get white in winter and brown in summer, so that probably is somewhere in all rabbits' genes. My Popsel is an agouti coloured bunny and when he changes his fur, he has a black unibrow moving up his face, looks very funny.

    Awwww he's so lovely!!!

    Bobbin was just a fawn colour when I got him, then gradually the sooty came through, especially on his face where's he's now grown a sooty tash!

    Its happened to me too.

    My Netherland Dwarf changes each winter (darker) and back again (light) in spring!

    Also I just got a cross breed girl Cleo who is very much like yours and is going much darker.
