    There are some good answers here, but I would like to give my input. I’ve heard to wean show and smaller breed kits around 7-8 weeks. Take out the bigger ones first, and do them gradually so the mom doesn’t dry up all at once. Good luck with them and they’re super cute!

    Just pulled 3 out of 5 kits away from their mom's today, at 5 weeks old. After smelling the new cage, the 3 rabbits started running around the cage as they seamed to enjoyed a less crowded cage. On mom's cage, the last 2 kits did also enjoyed more room and acted the same way, running around their cage, and driving mom crazy :weee

    Thank you. They’re 5 weeks & 2 days today & I think I gonna take out the 2 kits that will be sold to separate homes first. The cage is getting a bit crowded for them & mom seems to be kind of annoyed with them at this point already. Anything I should watch out for since I’m separating them?

    Nothing really special to pay attention at. Except to keep a close look at how they enjoy being rabbits, and show you how they can hop around in a less crowded cage.
    They will feed, drink and cuddle like rabbits do.
