    Ok I have two rabbits age is about 9 months old. Well lately the smaller one is licking the other ones feet and now there is a patch of fur missing on its feet Im curious on why does it do that and is that normal???
  2. Are they mother and child?

    You really should have them seperated by 9 months of age, regaurdless of if they are related or not. Two bucks will fight, two does will sometimes fight worse, and one of each and you'll have constant babies!

    It could be they are bord, of that the other one actually has fur mites or any possible number of things, but my first bet would be to seperate them, and if it doesn't clear up, then we can go from there...
