Is bunny eating and drinking or huddled in a corner looking like she is in pain? If bunny is fine apart from the poop, keep off veg today and see how it is later. If bun hasn't eaten or drank and looks in pain take bun to the vet.
The clustered poos would be caecal poos - the ones bunnies are meant to eat to redigest the nutrients from it.
However, if they've eaten lots of dry mix/pellets rather than hay, they can produce excess ones which you'll see in the cage.
Try cutting down the dry feed and feeding lots of hay - it may be worth cutting out the dry stuff for a day to let his tummy 'clear out' and make sure he eats lots of hay.
Mix just a few pellets in with his regular food the first week, then a bit more the second week, and so on, until after about a month that's all he has in his dish - it clears up sticky bum problems as it's high in fibre and contains 'good' bacteria.
Just been out to inspect him. i think there is a tiny bit of poo on his bum and a tiny bit on his back legs. he was going in the same place all three times and i think this is why one seemed wet... i think it was squashed. How do i remove poo as it seemed hard because it had dried?
So i cut out the dry food for a day... will he be alright?
see my post above as we bumped I don't think you should cut out his dry food as he's just a baby. You could try picking out the peas and carrots and sweetcorn if it's that type of mix, and let him eat the healthier bits maybe?
I believe you can use baby wipes to clean off poo, but if it's dried on you can use cooking cornflour, used for making sauces, and massage the powder in so that the dirt slides off. Probably best not to get him wet as he will attract flies even more.
8 weeks tends to be the ag rabbits go to their new homes so at a guess you haven't had him long? Rabbits have very sensitive tummies so it's important to introduce new foods gradually. The place you got him from should have told you what brand of food he was on and what he was used to eating. You need to stick with this and if you want to feed something different introduce in gradually otherwise it will upset his tummy.
