I'm going to look at two male lops tomorrow. The current owner had recently taken them on from a friend and can't tell me if they have been neutered or not. They don't get on with existing pets so are being rehomed a second time, poor lads.

They are 2 years old. If they have been neutered will it be easy to tell? Ie no balls? We're only willing to take them if they've already been done so any tips on how we can tell without a vet would be helpful!

No rabbit experience but if you Google pictures of male rabbits neutered/uneutered they should be loads.
2yo are mature adults so if they have balls they'll be in evidence.

IWith our male guinea pigs (we had 2 neutered and 2 entire) there was a huge difference.

They'll need a Vet check anyway to register them and check teeth , vaccines etc.

It'll be easy to tell, there'll be balls or no balls. Hope they're nice.

They haven't been neutered, and their teeth and claws need some wearing down. But we took them. From what the current owner said, they had a pretty poor start and the first owner basically abandoned them. That said, they're both incredibly friendly and curious! So with a bit of TLC and vet visits they should be lovely. We've named them Kili and Fili grin

Welcome to your new life Kili and Fili grin
They'll benefit from some TLC and routine and you'll have two lovely bouncy greedy boys who will get their paws under the table and you'll feel like they've always been there.
