    I have no idea what sex my 2 rabbits are, they are about 3 months old. Is there a way to tell or do I not want to go there?
    A guy at ACE said he could sex them...I just figured if it was easy I wouldn't have to take them up there...

    It actually is really easy. You put them on their back and kind of separate their genital area until it pops out. I'm sure I'm not describing that correctly but anyway, the female will have a slit at the end of hers, and the males will be longer. You can find pictures online about what the different parts look like so you can compare them. It's really easy once you do it, and I'm sure I'm not doing a very good describing job, lol!

    *I found a website that does a better descriptive job than me, lol!
