    We are supposed to pick up Milkshake on Monday. All the owner knows is that they bought Milkshake from TSC about 3 years ago. They dont know breed or gender. Milkshake will be a pet, but may also be used for "meat rabbit" breeding, we arent sure yet.

    So, is Milkshake a buck or a doe? And what breeds?

    not true, something should pop out for either gender. I'll post a link for sexing.

    At 3 years old, you shouldn't even have to protrude the penis to tell. Male rabbits are fairly well...endowed. You should be able to see if there's any "dangly bits" just by turning him over. Although, looking at the picture Milkshake appears to have a bit of a dewlap. Yes, male rabbits can have dewlaps, but they are much more common on females. My best guess, just from the one pic (which I wouldn't stake anything except maybe a can of soda on) is that Milkshake is female. As for breed, my guess would also be harlequin or harlequin mix.

    In direct answer to your question, Milkshake looks like my friend's rabbit (who sadly died last year). [​IMG]
