    Default baby bunnies..

    Someone has just posted this on my fb, I know nothing about babies bunnies...any advice?

    One of my friends on here is saying that she has 3 week old baby bunnies and one of them hasn't opened it's eyes. Any ideas? Should she be worried?

    They are 3 weeks old? (as opposed to 3 rabbits all at one week old).

    Yes, she should be worried and straight to a vet. She could try a warm compress (but don't try and open them herself), but that should be done on day 14, its likely to not be straight forward at this length of time.

    If they are a week old then that's fine (although if she has those with eyes open then that too can be problematical.

    They open from 10-14 days, normally days 11-12. If they haven't opened by day 14 then a warm compress can help, but if not, they need to see a vet, and if they open and then close again then they need to see a vet.
