    Default What age can they be neutered

    Im worried about them breedding before i can re-home them as i have heard that rabits can start as little as three months old, I was thinking of getting maes done first if i keep any. Then looking into getting the females done. What you think. What age can i get them done at?

    You need to seperate the boys from the girls at 10-12 weeks

    The boys can be neutered as soon as their 'bits' have dropped, usually around 14-16 weeks.

    The girls can be spayed at 5-6 months.

    i'd ask your vets as my vets wont neuter boys until they are 5 months old and wont neuter females until they are 6 months old.

    Really depends on your vet and the size of th buns I think. I had a group of 5 boys from the same litter all neutered at about 13 weeks! My vet has speyed a girl for me from 4 months old but they do all vary.
    As Jane says just make sure boys are separated from girls at 10-12 weeks. (i'd go with 10 to be sure!) x
