Continental rabbits accident and now have babies

by Hayley
(Ely Cambridgeshire UK)

I rescued two continental giant rabbits as they were living in an indoor rabbit cage. I was told that they were boys.

After having them for 2 months, I discovered that one of them was actually female, after she gave birth to 8 babies!

I have now had the male neuted, and am hoping to find good homes for 5 of the babies.

Please can you tell me how old the babies have to be before taking them from their mother.

Many thanks


P.S. - I would advise anyone taking rabbits (from anywhere, even shops), that you check the sex yourself!

P.P.S. - I have found this website very helpful, thank you.
