    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] this is our new bunny he is supposed to be 6 weeks old not positive though I would like help identifying his breed and he seems to be sneezing when I try to google it everyone says it’s only if a problem if he’s sneezing too much but as I am new to this I have no clue how much is too much about 2-3 times a day he will have a “sneezing fit” he will sneezed 8-10 times really quickly and then goes back to normal and will run around and play. Is this normal or excessive and what should I be looking for/doing to help him? Thanks for the advice in advance! Any other advice for a new rabbit owner would be great too we want him to be as happy and healthy as possible

    The color is blue. He looks like a Mini Rex, but without a size reference and seeing how young he is he might also be a Rex (I would still lean towards Mini Rex personally). Rabbits should really still be with their mother at 6 weeks, you need to keep a good eye on him and make sure he gets lots of hay. They shouldn't really have 'sneezing fits' that's something you might want to check with your vet about, stressed and young rabbits (like he would be, with the stress of moving) are especially prone to respiratory diseases.

    He seems to mostly sneeze after eating the Timothy hay more so than the alfalfa hay but sometimes it is when he is just sniffing something or completely random
