Female Rabbits Spraying

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Northern Prairies » Fri Oct 20, 2017 3:16 pm


Just wondering why my female rabbits seem to be spraying... a few of them have their cage walls covered in white stuff. My males don't do this. It kind of confused me because I thought that was a male thing. Any suggestions? :shock:

Some does do seem to spray... They back up to a spot and let loose. Can really make a mess. Thankfully, not All does do that !

Bucks can spin And spray at the same time and cover a larger area . :/

Just to give it a positive spin ;) : I've read it's actually healthy, since that squirting prevents sludge from settling and accumulate in the bladder :)

My does do mark territory this way, mostly horizontal and about 20-30cm far at the most, it's definitly harmless to what my buck did while he was younger, it was dripping from the hutch ceiling and when I let him out of the hutch I had to run for cover :lol:
