    Hey Hetty , good to see you on RU again . I have nothing to add that hasn't already been said except "well done" for taking on these bunnies. Most people would have walked away. Looking forward to seeing pictures.

    Yes the breeder was in Essex.
    I am reporting said breeder and bunnies have their vet appt booked.

    Ralph was holding his head up normally this morning but fell over a lot. Roger has come leap and bounds already. I have videos, anyone know how to upload them?

    agree with the others, definitely not normal! What did the other bunnies at the breeders look like? Any signs of head tilt and/or inability to walk there? I would be tempted to give the RSPCA a ring if you think the conditions there were such that they might be able to see something wrong for themselves.

    Whereabouts are you living now, are you still using Spring Lodge?

    Edit:cross posted! You can upload video to photobucket in the same way that you do photos.

    All other babies looked fine but we're much younger.
    Roger has an extremely under shot jaw as well. So worried about them now

    Vets in an hour. Worried.
    Roger is very underweight. I noticed he had an undershot jaw but when I managed to look inside I've never seen anything like it. His upper incisors are so long and curling into the back of his mouth.
    Praying for the boys :-(

    Poor things

    Big bunnies should be healthy, happy, bouncy bundles of joy. Not this.

    I hope your appointment went ok, whatever the outcome you did a brilliant thing taking them on as without you they would never have received the veterinary attention they clearly need xx
