How to Sex A Baby Rabbit
Sexing baby rabbits can be challenging. But, as with anything, practice will make you better.
I normally sex my babies at 3 weeks of age. It can be difficult, but most of the time, I am accurate. I always re-sex the babies at 6-7 weeks old again, just to make sure.
These first two pictures are 4 week old babies.

This first picture is a doe. Does will appear to have a small "slit" when you push down on their vent area.
This second picture is a buck. Bucks will "pop up" and look like a circle with a dot in the center of it when you push down on their vent area.
Since the above pictures were taken on 4 week old babies, I thought I would include some pictures of older babies. These babies below are 7 weeks old.
This first picture is a doe. The "slit" is more obvious in this picture and easier to see because the baby is older.
This second picture is a buck. This also shows the "pop up" and circle of a buck better, because this is an older baby.
