    They reach sexual maturity (AKA adulthood) at about 6 months (They are recongnized as adults but that does not mean that they are actually able to breed) it depends on their lineage.

    Polish cost around $25 normally and they are pretty easy going. Not bitey but like to taste your fingers when little. Not biting just more like a pup licks you.

When your bunny has gotten "frisky" and rough with you it is probably because s/he has not been spayed/neutered.

Unless you plan to breed your bunny, have it fixed and you will most likely see these behaviors disappear... Your sweet, mild-mannered bunny will return!

I have a pair of Polish Rabbits , they are sisters , our problem is one sister keeps biting the other pulling its hair out leaving a sore. We have separated them at this time to prevent more problems and Velvet is healing well.
Is this normal behavior and is there anything we can do to help them get along so they can stay together?
They have an outside hutch as well as inside.
Any suggestions?

    I know this is a few years late, but it's my first time on the site. I came across your posting and felt compelled to respond in case it benefits someone else looking for the same type of answer. From what I have read, females are more territorial then males. Yes, I was surprised to read this while doing my research for my own rabbit the last few months. That is why they say when breeding bunnies to never leave a male and female together (unless they are fixed) because the female is aggressive towards the male because she will claim the space. You are supposed to take the female to the males cage never the other way around. In your case, it sounds like the female is a lot more aggressive and territorial then your other female. You didn't list if they were fixed or not, so this may not apply if they are indeed fixed. However, they have also stated in many sites I've read that if a rabbit is anxious, aggressive, etc before getting fixed it make them permanently that way after they are fixed. The best way to have a bunny fixed is to make sure they are comfortable, not anxious and in a good place temperamentally before having them fixed. However from the information you shared it sounds like a territory issue and the one rabbit is being aggressive towards your other bunny. I hope this helps someone that may be having the same issue and is looking for answers. As for you, i hope this situation has been resolved. Take care!

    I would NOT recommend getting them fixed unless you have a vet that specializes in rabbits around you. DO NOT DO IT IF YOU DO NOT! If the vet is NOT knoledgable on rabbits HE COULD KILL UR RABBIT!!! BE CAREFUL!

My daughter's pet bunny (a Polish Dwarf) named Ben was a fixture in our family for four years. As far as bunnies go, he was a very gentle, laid back rabbit who loved people and would frequently run back and forth into his house whenever we were near to ensure he was noticed. One week ago he was very lethargic and stopped eating. We finally took him to the vet three days later and they gave him an IV drip for fluid loss and a shot for pain. My daughter came home with meds, instructions for feeding him and when he came home he indeed seemed better, more lively. He accepted water from a dropper and was even more active (which complicated things because we were told to keep him warm). He was eating food the morning after the visit but seemed to get progressively worse throughout that day and when we awoke Thursday morning, he had passed away. As a father, I felt my daughter's grief but I experienced my own sense of profound loss as my little friend who would hop around the floor at my feet soliciting attention and a scratch. We buried him in our garden and tears welled up in my eyes as I replaced the dirt in his grave. I will miss my daughter's pet; he quickly became a special and important part of our family.

    I know how you feel. I had a Polish Dwarf named Trevor. He was white, with the prettiest blue eyes. A friend gave him to me when he was about two. He died June 30, 2010 at the age of 13. I am 44 years old and it was hard for me to lose him. He was like Ben, very gentle and loving and loved to run around and play.

polish rabbbits are an awesome first rabbit. They love to run and if the live on the ground, they will dig out of the cage. my rabbit loves to lie in the grass all day long. she isn't afraid of the other animals at all!(I also have 2 big dogs and 2 cats) she loves to be held but she can be a little jumpie. she doesn't like it when more then a couple people are around, she gets all freaked out! they love to chew and they are very very smart. i did a test to see if she would go in a litter box. i put cat litter in her cage and her instincts told her to pee in the liter box. i highly recommed a polish rabbit for a pet!
