i need to know what sex my rabbit is coz i dont want any unexpected pregnacys ive already got 1 rabbit that we thought was a boy but when we took it to get neutered we found out 'he' was a girl. Our vet charges £14 for appointments and told us we needed to make an appointment to see what sex our rabbit was. my new rabbit diggs alot which i read in a book said is meant to be a girl thing, she makes nests, she seems to have a keen interest in my other rabbit, we think she may have boy bits but we cant tell, she runs in and out of your legs all the time which is supposed to be a boy thing and sometimes tries to nibble you. PLEASE HELP!
If your bunny is old enough that it's "parts" are easily seen it is fairly easy to tell boys from girls. Sometimes the smaller ones like Netherland Dwarfs are a bit harder. You hold the bunny on it's back and put a finger on either side of it's vent to make the "tube" protrude. It will look like a tiny little straw. If the hole is straight accross the top it is a boy. if it looks like it is cut on a diagonal (one side lower than the other) it is a girl. Rabbits are not terribly social creatures and tend to fight no matter what sex the other is except when breeding once they reach maturity. The vet is a very good idea but you could also try for someone who has a rabbitry.
We took our rabbits to a locally owned pet shop where we buy their food, toys, etc and they told us. It's a mom and pop type store and they have had a lot of experience. I wouldn't try at petsmart or something like that because chances are they probably don't know either. I did read how to tell a boy from a girl, but to tell you the truth, I could never see it. The girl is a dwarf rabbit, maybe that's why, but I could never tell on the boy either, and he's a big guy. Anyway, just a suggestion. They didn't mind telling me, didn't charge me anything either. Of course I buy stuff there anyway. But it is cheaper than a vet. Good Luck.
thanks for the help but their are no local pet shops nearby i buy food and stuff from the pet isle at the super market. Also ive tried turning it on its back but it wont let me how can i make it let me turn it over please help
I have had thirteen rabbits before and that sound like a girl. I know there are signs of a bot but i have a girl that exactly does guy things. She even smelled like a guy rabbit in heat. But then we checked and she was a girl.
