Hey there!
Ok, so there is a girl wanting to buy a baby bunny from me (When my litter is born...they are coming soon.)
So she has a 3 year old male already, and she wants a female. :cat-rub:
The baby I will give her, will be about 7 weeks old. She plans on getting her rabbit she has now fixed, so there will be no future litters. ;)
My question is...if he breeds her (Being neutered and all) she won't get pregnant, but will it harm her...being so young? :(
At Easy Ears Rabbitry I raise pedigree Holland lops and Netherland Dwarfs. As well as Dutch Dwarfs (A smaller breed of Dutch).

It would be unlikely that he would attempt to breed her after being neutered. I would definitely make sure he has been neutered before giving her another bunny. He probably wouldn't hurt her, but he probably won't try.

There is a several week wait period after neutering and then it should not be an issue. There is more risk of her hurting him if she doesn't want bred and he insists on trying. Bucks have been castrated by pissy does. Most likely he won't try or at least won't try often enough to really bother her.

But if he does attempt to breed her, would she get hurt? :(

No. That would not hurt her. Without her consent there's no mating, if she doesn't lift he cant get his parts in place. If she's annoyed she will go away. Maybe give her some crawl space where she just fits under, a board on short legs etc., so she has a retreat from any such attempts.

But 6 weeks after beeing neutered he most likely will have lost interest, occassional humping - by buck or doe - can be a completly normal hierachy statement.

EDIT: Oh, geezz, I should look at the dates of posts :roll:

My neighbor has a few house bunnies, three to be exact. She lost one of hers recently, and it was right when I had a Mini Rex litter, and they were about 3 weeks old. I gave her the choice of the litter, and she picked a very cute Little buck, and named him Lil sweet. She has two other doe rabbits, both fixed. One lives in an xpen, by herself, and the other is the one who lost her "mate" a few months ago. So, now Lil Sweet is now 7 months old, and he is fixed. They still haven't bonded with each other, but it seems to go a lot better now that he is fixed. He does try to mount her, and it seems to actually help their "getting along" process. Hope this helps. :oops:

True, in most cases. My latest litter (oven babies) were product of a rape :oops: My buck went after doe (3 months old. old enough, but in here rabbits are not really ready by then), grabbed her and penetrated when she was just laying there frightened.
