Rabbits become sexually mature from three and a half to nine months of age. The smaller the breed, the earlier the onset of sexual maturity. Separate young rabbits into same sex groups by 10–12 weeks of age to avoid unwanted litters. The photographs show a litter of five-week-old rabbits and a rabbit examined for sexing.
