Other Rabbit Breeders Out There.... help!
To all of you who raise rabbits, I'm wondering if anyone has ever had this problem or has any ideas for me. I normally don't post about my problems (LOL) but this one has me stumped and I need some ideas! I have a three week old baby doe who is from a litter of four. Her fur is falling out, a lot like if she was shedding... only she's three weeks old. :-( It is getting pretty bad, overall she looks very scruffy, is very thin and boney, and is going bald in some places. It is not her siblings chewing on her, because the fur comes out when I pet her or pull on it, like a molting rabbit. The rest of her siblings are furry, fat and happy. She is very active, eats, and seems healthy otherwise, it's just that she is very, VERY skinny and boney, and losing her fur. :-( I have researched but can't come up with anything. Anyone have any ideas for me? Any help would be greatly appreciated, I need to help this little bun! Thank you. :-)
