    We do have a very good rabbit forum, lots of good information there. Anyway, congrats on the possibility of becoming a bunny grammy!

    After what I discovered about Heather actuallybeing a boy I decided I’d better check the sex on our other three rabbits. It’s a good thing I did that too. Turns out Clover is also a little buck. I also checked my nieces two rabbits. They were both what she told me they are. We had planned on using the New Zealand as a stud. I should have guessed that he would be neutered. He used to be a classroom pet at my nieces school. Just by comparing the scrotums of all three bucks I think it’s safe to assume he’s fixed. That’s a good thing to know because we could have waited for baby bunnies for a really long time had I not. We did stick Ginger in the same hutch as Heath. We did want to have bunnies available for Easter. We might have some now.

    Don't know about anywhere else but here the seller pays the commission. Usually 6% of the sale price. Split between buyer and sellers agents.

    I'm not sure on this, but from what I understand, bunnies aren't normally neutered or spayed... It's very costly, difficult, and the rabbit doesn't always survive the procedure... @Bunnylady ? Not to say that yours hasn't been... Just seems a bit unusual, especially in a school environment... Would they really spend the $$ to have it done?

    Miss @Carla D,

    Sorry to hijack your thread to discuss real estate when you are discovering that your rabbits had sex changes!

    Yes, that is normally the case. While the commission need not be 6%, that is the usual and customary fee, with 2% going to the listing agent, 1% going to the listing broker, 2% going to the buyer's agent, and 1% going to the buyer's broker. While listing agents don't HAVE to split the commission that way, they usually do. And regardless of how the commission is split, the buyer's agent is a fiduciary for the buyer, not the seller.

    We return you to your regularly scheduled program already in progress...

    Carla, when I turn my male over to check him, he can bring his testicles up inside him leaving just "empty" skin, you may want to check again... and yes people do get male rabbits fixed...I know a few fixed boys, lol...my boy had better stop spraying or he will be replaced and become stew meat.

    This is not a problem. Since we are considering buying a small farm ourselves I’m finding this type of information quite useful.

    I’m hoping this is the case with Oliver. He’s a super sweet and gorgeous bunny. But, being my nieces former pet I don’t feel right about eating him as my husband suggested. That why we wanted to breed him. So he earns his keep. If that makes any sense.

    Is there any way for me to tell if he is castrated' short of rechecking him a few more times?

    I can't answer that question Carla, as I would be taking a guess, may want to go to the rabbit section and look and see or google it, as google may have photos to look at.

    Put him in with a doe in heat and see what happens. He'll either mount her, is gay or is castrated ;)
