I hear your advise
You.might be right, she could be 3 or 4 weeks old
I.am monitoring her , so far she is doing good
I 'm glad of that....
So what about Timothy. Hay ughm how many months old would you say in order to.have Timothy hay?
She. Has been washing her self
And she was weaned.
Yeah your right she. Must be 3 or 4 months old.

3 or 4 weeks. Timothy is fine now, I give mixed grass hay (is a mix of clover, timothy, alfalfa and other grasses). It is on the lower end of the scale as far as protein content goes but does OK for fiber/enrichment.

Timothy is usually what's suggested unless you're feeding a non-pelleted diet or orchard grass hay.

Another safe food for baby rabbits is plain kitchen oatmeal (Like Quaker Old-Fashioned /Large-Flake). Rabbits love it and it is easy to digest. Do not feed instant or flavoured varieties. Don't give her too much, just a spoonful or so.

I strongly suspect this bunny was weaned and sold far too early, but if you work with her and understand the risks, you will likely be able to help her through this.

Another thing to keep in mind that because she is so young, there is a good chance "she" could be a "he" - I don't think you have any other rabbits with her, but if you do decide to add another in the future you want to make sure you know what you have so you don't have any accidental breedings.

Could you add your location to your profile on the left hand side? So much care, advice and information regarding rabbits is hugely dependent on climate, local laws, etc. so it is very helpful info to have on members :)

I hope she makes it through - she does look very very young, I am surprised a breeder would sell one that early (not to mention in many areas it is flat out illegal to do so). MaggieJ's oatmeal recommendation is a good one - there have been cases of litters unexpectedly having to wean, either because the doe died, or ended up pregnant again right after delivering the one litter and oatmeal is something many people use successfully. Were you able to use the same pellets the breeder was feeding? That would be helpful as well, not as a big of a shock to her system. I give buyers enough with each rabbit purchased so they can transition them over to whatever they are using a little at a time over the course of a week or two.

Any updates on this? My guy is a lionhead (doublemaned) and seeing baby pictures really takes me back!
