I fear, she may have spelled the breed name incorrectly in the ad.

The breed is called Lionhead.

Sakura Snow is a beautiful name! The image doesn't seem to be working however.

Congratulations on the new bunny! This is a great place to learn rabbit care. :)

I went into the post to see if I could fix it, and there is no image code at all.

Please don't feed her peanut butter, its not really good for rabbits let alone babies :( It has added sugar as well as other fillers that bunnies really don't do well with.

I'd talk to the breeder about what she was eating/drinking if you haven't already. Then I'd do some looking up of care and what are good/bad treats. Keep in mind she's a baby, any thing new could cause a stomach upset and you don't really want to do that. You may want to actually hold off on treats for a lil while and just make sure she has plenty of pellets (or whatever breeder diet she was being fed), hay, and fresh water.

There are lots of information about good feeding and treat choices on here too. Some sources (house rabbit and rescue) take with a heavy grain of salt as most don't do all that well on what they suggest as their "diet" but they can give you some ideas into safe foods.

That is an adorable name! Watch a lot of anime? :) Naruto? I tried looking at the picture, but it gave me an error not found page :(

:welcome:

Hi,
to show her the water you don't have to bait her, just showing her the bowl several times, tipping the finger in and wetting her lips will do for most bunnies, no peanut butter or any sweets or human food necessary. :)

What do you feed? Did the breeder give you advice/food? She has hay and her other stuff to nibble on all day, not just at "feeding times", right? :)

How old is this rabbit? I'm not used to this breed, but it looks like about 8 weeks to me, right?

Ahm, between "being sleepy", is she a curious, alert and active bunny?

Yes, sorry, a lot of questions, but we just don't want you to stumble into problems, even when you are used to rabbits a new one can sometimes be a challange :rabbit-hop1:

The only good thing is fresh water and plenty of green bunny pellets, and she has been very curious.
Some times she drink tiny baby bottle.
The breeder said she can only held a while.
I wish I can show a photos of her but the website is being difficult.

Only few weeks old if click in the link of her photo

She only eats your basic rabbit pellet and fresh water. No corn or anything else

Yes, that photobucket or whatever sites are cumbersome, but you can upload pictures in this forum, when writing a post there is "upload attachment" below the text window, click on that, chose the picture and "add the file" - I'm not sure about the max. file size, I think it's 100 or 200kb.


Anyway, you might want to add hay to your bunnys diet, to keep her digestion and teeth healthy. And they really enjoy nibbling hay.

How old is your bunny? She's very pretty, but she also looks very, very young. I'd hold off on fruit as treats until she is older. More baby bunnies than you would believe possible have been killed by loving owners feeding too many treats.

Yeah I hold of giving treats, she is doing very well
She fits in the palm if my hands.
I glad she has a good alpterite and now drink on her own etc
I got her from a good local breeder my last bunny that only 4 months old passed on from a cold and a
Gum injury from a passed mating.
Some pet shops don't care the rabbits just care about making a buck.
Do I took a chance look in the adds in online of Craig's list and found her.
I'm glad I did.

I'm sorry to say this, but if Sakura is only 2 weeks old, you did not get her from a good or responsible breeder. Most good breeders won't wean the kits until 4-6 weeks, and then usually won't sell until 8 weeks. Given Sakura's young age, you may have to give her lots of extra care as her immune system and digestive systems are undergoing a rapid transition away from her mother's milk to solid foods. I hope the others here are able to help you as best they can, but from a number of other posts I've read (on this forum, Facebook, and some exchanges with breeders at shows) a kit that young generally shouldn't be removed from its mother and might very well develop weaning enteritis.

I'm really crossing my fingers everything turns out well for you guys, though, she sure is a cutie.

Well she's eating her pellets more and she 's drinking
And bowel moments are good so far and sleeps well
She 's been doing very well so far.

Who knows she might be more than 2 weeks ago
But she's been weaned
I change her water each day til she old enough to drink from the water bottle.

From what I see she is healtly and in good spirits
No signs of stress and. She is now blinking
Yeah I give a lot more care I monitor her behavior
And I sanitized her cage and her bedding
Her food dish and her water dish

I had a loinhead bunny before
He lasted a long time
Due because I kept up the cage and water and food
Grooming I kept the cage very clean
The little is changed and I use good littler dust free
Keeps her dry and healthy
I an very careful in caring for Sakura
I am. No little kid.
Been studying bunny care talking with the breeder
And get information on here.

Very cute, but I'm very very worried. She's too young to be in a new home IMO. (I had TINY lions, even my babies at 8 weeks they were bigger than her...my adults were right under 2lbs and 2.01lbs). She looks to be *maybe* 3 to 4 weeks of age, just old enough to be out and about eating pellets and in an emergency wean from momma. Definitely keep a good eye on her, and close. Any slight sign of being off, could be a disaster. She will not be able to handle stresses as well as an older bunny or diet changes as well. I would not let others outside of her direct care need handle her either, they could accidentally pass some thing to her or stress her out to the point she has problems. As others have suggested, hold off on treats and extras....just hay, pellets, and water with tons of care. If she was really old enough to be on her own, she wouldn't be sleeping most of the day...only really small babies do that. Usually by the time they hit 4 weeks they are spending just as much time out and running around as their mommas unless there is an issue health wise. Bunnies take naps, but not a lot.

I really hope all goes well, but do be careful :) I don't think any one is saying your a child, just worried because the baby is so small and sleeping so much.
