Typically a rabbit can be spayed as soon as the vet is willing. Some vets will spay at earlier ages than others. The size of the rabbit also can have a bearing. Generally speaking, a female is spayed around 5 months of age. Rabbits are considered adults at 6-7 months of age.

Every breed is considered mature at a different age. For example, I raise Holland Lops and they can be fixed as early as 4 months old, mainly depending on individual maturity and experience of the vet. Normally females can / should be spayed around 5 - 6 months of age :) Males typically can be neutered as soon as their balls drop!

Don't spray your females before 7 months bigger race 8 months. Because better is to give her organs time to be an adult. and don't want to rape females. or get pregnant teenagers.

Sorry, this is wrong. Rabbit vets recommend spaying between 16 weeks and 6 months. If you wait longer, they lay down fat around the uterus which makes the operation more difficult.

I agree with what @Happy Hollands, that bunnies are mature at different ages, and can be spayed/neutered then.

Yes. This was stated earlier that the size of the rabbit has a bearing. (Most pet rabbits are mixed breeds so it is the actual size/maturity that the vet will go by moreso than "breed" since that is often a guess.)
