    Different for each bun i believe.



    Some are born loppy, some do it after a few months etc.

    Some have one up one down Confused!

    Mischa was a pet shop bun so was loppy from when I got him. Nutmeg is uppy and Smudge, well Smudge is confused.

    But Mini...

    3 weeks:



    4 weeks:


    Mini is in the middle, as you can see her ears are still a bit pointy, Marsh (right) had fully flopped, Mocha (left) was half and half by that point

    9 weeks:


    Full flop!

    I only have tiny baby pics of Mini cos, erm, we breed Mischa with my friend's doe I don't like to advertise it No baby pics of Nutmeg cos she was adult when she came here. Smudge was just a fluff ball as a baby. Got a few of Mischa.

    ETA. This is one of the first pics of Mischa. His ears were already completely lopped. This would've been about 9 weeks old I think.



    I can't believe my baby was ever that tiddly!!!
