Hey...I've been asking around about when baby bunnies can be held but I can't seem to get an exact answer. When can I pick up the baby bunnies and not worry about the mother not taking care of them or getting too stressed after I handle them?

My brother had baby bunnies and he held them from day one (with mothers nesting fur in his hand so not to give them too much of his scent) and mummy rabbit has taken care of all 7 no problems and they are now 4 weeks old :)

uhm, i would say day three but pet the mom first so she knows the scent. (oh and by the way, that whole thing about "if you hold the baby bunny the mom will not take care of them anymore" Isnt true!! domestic rabbits really dont care about scent)
