Well, this one surprised me. A neighbor over by the MotherinLaws place got tired of feeding her bunny's so she turned 'em all loose. A bunch ended up at the MIL's and everybody thought they were real cute until they started eating her trees, and trees out here are an endangered species. At any rate, I live trapped 'em and gave most away, but I kept two big bucks to use as instant manure factories. I rigged up some nice hutches with a door over the 'home' part of it. Well, last night the kids went out to give 'em fresh bedding (cold night coming), and low and behold, 8 baby bunnies that are cute as can be. Their eyes are open so I know they're at least a few weeks old. How long till they're weaned and I can separate them?

I do beleive it is 6-8 weeks, weaning, also I think it depends on the breed of rabbit, I leave mine 6-8 weeks, mine is a mini-lop. If that helps

sincerely,
Stan :)

Watch out for them BIG bucks. We raised rabbits,had a hard time(realy never did) convincin Maw Hog that tha bucks are SMALLER'n tha does.
I had a doe that was huge,figured mabe We could come up with giants by breedin Her to tha right buck. Same time had a buck I wanted to get rid of . Told maw ta call tha neighbors and ask em if they wanted it.Later came back to the house and seenin tha buck still in it's cage I asked Maw bout it . She said He came and got it,called Neighbor,was just startin ta skin it and Yep twas My big doe. To this day Dear wife still thinks bucks are bigger. No wonder tha "Native Americans lost".

Heh heh heh! That's easy to happen with rabbits. Some neighbors brought 2 over to my place to have them bred, a few years ago. The deed was done in short order, so they took them back home. A couple of months later, I stopped by and asked the lady if we had been successful. She say's "Well, one of them had 6 babies." I said, "What about the other one?" She started laughing and said, "That one turned out to be a boy!" It didn't seem to matter much to ol' Fred, though. ;-)>>>

At our county fair a couple years ago, the champion buck rabbit had to cancel out of going to the state fair because HE had a litter of baby rabbits.
