It's usually not a good idea to purchase a kit any younger than 6 weeks of age. This ensures that the kit is fully weaned and completely transitioned to a solid foods diet. Rabbits have very delicate digestive systems. Too much change, too quickly can be fatal.it will be just getting off of mama bunnys milk
Do not purchase if under 4 weeks of age. That is too young to be away from mom.
They should be fully weaned for at least two weeks before they are sold. And that's just to ensure that they are, in fact, ready to be away from mom. Sounds like they are being sold way too soon/young. If a person cannot tell you exactly how old the kits are, don't buy. It's a red flag.thanks everyone for your help sorry i dont know the range the guy at the feed store said they are still on the mothers milk and will be ready to sell in a week and a half does that sound right thanks so much for your help
If he can't tell you exactly how old they are, do not buy. It's very likely he is selling before they are old enough. The odds are that if you do buy, the baby will end up dead, through no fault of your own. Newly weaned kits are very delicate. Switching them from nursing to solids too quickly can be fatal.I asked the guy at the feed store and he said he does not know what age they will be all he knows is they will be ready in a week and a half should I buy or no thanks so much for your help
