At what age can I assume my mini lop has reached his full size?
Hi! After one year you can assume your bun has reached adulthood. Just FYI - From 7 months to one year, rabbits are considered in their "teenaged years."
K, I was told he is 4-6 months old and won't get any bigger but I guess that is wrong. She also never fed him any hay but lots of veggies. Is that okay?
Hay is pretty vital. At this age, you can give a mix of Alfalfa and Timothy, then just Timothy or other grass hays for adulthood. The hay is important fibre to keep the gut moving and preventing hair blockages. When the gut slows and goes into Gastro Intestinal Stasis, a rabbits health can deterioate very rapidly. There are some diet recommendations under Bunny Info tab at top of page. It suggests minium 2 cups veggies/day for adult bunnies and ALWAYS provide hay!
I was thinking this the other day...thanks for asking! Oh good, I'm glad I won't have to worry about him getting any bigger, it's hard enough to hold the big guy!
He ate the hay instantly.
