    Bunny is 8 weeks old (as of Friday 21st, 2011). Had 3 siblings with it until last week, when I went out to lock up the coop I found baby bunny under mama still nursing. I thought they were pretty much done by 8 weeks. The bunny is female so I was planning on keeping her with mama.

    I have seen 12 week olds still nursing. Depends on the doe on how long they will still let them.
