    ahhhh I'm sorry I don't know how to tell the difference either. I also adopted 2 bunnies from petco a couple of years ago. They were supposedly sisters.....but they ended up not being sisters One got pregnant and we didn't even know until she had the babies (that did not turn out well ). We ended up getting the male fixed.

    if you put pressure on both sides of their hooey and a thing pops out its a boy. If nothing, its probably a girl kinda like popping a zit but push more down instead of together.

    good luck!

    I had two males and they humped on each other. They were babies though so they probably didn't know what they were doing.

    Petco didn't tell you if they were male or female?

    Were they already bonded when you adopted them, or were they separate? If they were already bonded, it's likely that they've already been spayed and neutered.

    Did you buy them or actually adopt? If you adopted, then the humane society that was attached to their adoption should have spayed and neutered them before adopting, most do.

    Petco should have given you ALL that information when you adopted, including information about the vet check-up, as well as whether they have been spayed or neutered. I HIGHLY recommend taking them to a vet for a check-up as a new bunny parent ASAP, to make sure that they have a clean bill of health, and the vet will be able to give you all the necessary information. keep in mind that rabbits MUST go to an exotics vet, so look up the closest in your area. Bunnies need some special care and testing, the testing of their poop at the minimum, for any parasites, etc. It is also highly recommended they be spayed or neutered if they aren't already because rabbits are known to have A LOT more health issues if they are not, and have shorter lifespans.

    I don't know how to tell if they are male or female, but check out this website, it's a great resource you can get great information from .

    I adopted my pair from Petco (but I am pretty sure it was humane society that had them there) and they were not fixed and I was told they were both female. They definitely were not

    If you're not experienced sexing rabbits it can be difficult to tell them apart. My fam always raised rabbits but I wasn't as in to them as I was other things.

    I filled out the papers.And gave them the name of my vet.. And gave a donation to petco. When I ask the manager.He said he wasen't sure if they were male or female.Yes they were in the same cage at petco.The manager said someone called and ask could they bring them in.And he said they could So im sure the previous owner kept them together.So l am pretty sure they've bonded.

    I already know Rabbits have to go to exotic vets.I have had rabbits before.But it was when I was younger.My vet specializes in rabbits.
