Well, I'm gender confused at least- about my bun that is. S/he is still very small and I've tried taking a look at the genitals but lol it's kinda difficult, Zsa Zsa doesn't get "hypnotized" or anything, even when I hold her(?) the way you're supposed to, she calms a bit but she is obviously not happy like that and I don't want to stress her too much. Once I did it and I could have SWORN I saw testicles, but my husband checked and said he didn't.
I'm pretty sure I know what ya'll will say- Take the bun to the vet! (which we plan on doing soon, but don't you have to wait for an animal to reach sexual maturity before fixing them? It's that way with cats at least...) But I was curious if there are any other sure-fire ways to figure out the gender. I've been told the females will develop a dewlap and males won't, is this true? Any other ideas?
I would not rely on either of those things to sex your rabbit.
Here's an article and the links at the bottom show the difference between male and female:
