    Default Smaller bun = smaller poos? Added: Hiccup question??

    I've read on a few threads that small poos indicates a health problem but, if the bun is smaller then surely that means their poos will be smaller? Fidget's poos are so much smaller than Frankie's, but he is a fair bit bigger - Just want to see if this is normal...



    I'm such a panicky bunny mum at the mo!

    Also...... Do rabbits get hiccups?

    thats how i tell alvin and pearl poops apart.. his are about 2/3rds the size of hers and always have been

    ive worked out after many panics that as long as they are squishable/moistish then they are good healthy poops... small rock hard stones send fear to my soul

    Alvin my precious angel is no longer living with me *sad face*

    I wonder why there is such a size difference then - Fidget tends to produce more but smaller.

    in some ways the smaller ones look better as they are paler. As my OH says, bigger is always better but you want to aim for big round golden balls Size wise my neddies are small, about the size of a frozen pea or a bit bigger, the other bunnies are usually about the size of a marrow fat pea or a bit bigger if that's any help at all.

    Thanks, yeh that helps, it is about the same proportion as frankie and fidget's. Fidget is a little hay hoover so that would explain why her poos look better. Frankie does eat his hay but not as much as i would like.
