Little Hope: Day 22

Little Hope is 3 weeks old today. I will not say he/she has passed the danger zone yet. I am still keeping my fingers crossed and that will be for another 5 weeks. I’ll continue praying for his/her health. You can never be too sure when it comes to kits.

Determining the age of rabbits

I am beginning to doubt and be skeptical about the age of my imported does. So here I am going on a hunt for some information to ascertain and determine the age of rabbits. I learned quickly that it is merely impossible to determine the exact age.

But I stumbled across an answer that says that we can roughly estimate the age of rabbits by looking at the ears. The more veins they have, the older they are. I am going to give this method a try but how much is many and how much is less?

The search continues…

Anyone with knowledge on this topic please feel free to post your comments.
