English Lop pics?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby wahoo7881 » Tue Aug 08, 2017 7:43 am

So I'm a sucker. Was at a flea market intending to see if they had chickens. Came home with an English lop that was SO tiny. Like he squeezes through the bars of an X-pen. Everything I've read is that by 9 or 10 weeks their ears should be as long as their body. The lady claimed mom died at birth and she hand raised him (yeah right). I asked how old he was and she was thinking for a minute and I was like "Just a rough estimate is fine." She claimed 12 weeks. To me this rabbit is NOT 12 weeks but I could be wrong. Anyone with English lops care to share pics of them when they were younger and how old they were in the picture?

It's possible he is small because he is hand raised. Hand raised kits are almost always small for their age. Sorry, I can't help with more specific english lop info. I don't know much about the breed.
