weight question

Hey, I have a 4 month old flemish giant named Bella. I was wondering how she should feel, meaning I can feel her spine. Is this normal for her age, I do not have a scale.

Do you mean her spine is protruding and you can feel the discs? You should not be able to feel their spine more so than just knowing its there. You shouldn't be able to feel the bumps. What does she eat?

A 4 month old rabbit should be on unlimited alfalfa hay and good quality pellets such as Martins young formula or Obxow's juvenile formula. She should not be eating any fruits or vegetables at this age either.

A picture would help if you can. But if there is cause for concern, have her looked at by a rabbit savvy vet to rule out internal problems if she is eating normally.
