when do bunnies stop growing?
« on: September 13, 2007, 01:11:57 PM »
what age is it that they stop growing? I have a male dwarf bun who is about 5 months old and will be 6 on oct. 9th...will he get bigger after that date?

Hmmm... trying to remember from when I was way into bunnies... at six months, they should be getting pretty close to full grown.  In showing, this is when they switch from the junior to senior class, so he should be just about done!  How big is your baby now?

Thank goodness - I hope you are right, because I almost already need a saddle for Gulliver!

my bun is about the size of a size 7 shoe (sorry, best description i can some up with) i don't have a scale to weight him on, but he still looks pretty tiny, though he was the runt of the litter and got very sick and almost died, so that couse have put a stunt on his growth maybe?

Sure, that could cause him to be a bit smaller.

Do you have a picture you can share of him?  I could help you determine the bun's breed, and judging by his age, I can let you know about when to expect that he'll stop growing.

Why?  Flemish Giants (which grow anywhere from 15-23lbs) grow for approx. 18 months...while dwarf buns stop at about 6mos.  So, breed kinda determines growth rate/age.  :D
