Hi. I think your rabbit may have ear mites the poor little bunny! I recommend visiting a local vet asap as ear mite can spread! The vet then will give you a treatment!

hope all goes well

You wouldn't visually see mites, too small and buried in the skin. As said above, get treatmeant from a vet (or tractor supply or whatever if that is easier). I would treat all of them, not just those with obvious symptoms.

Like the others have said, it's ear mites. Because they're so young, treatment is going to be a bit difficult and a little risky. But it needs to be done as this could result in permanent ear damage, and could lead to a secondary bacterial infection starting, if that hasn't already happened in some of them. Find a good knowledgeable rabbit vet and get them seen right away.
