    how much should a standard rex rabbit weigh?
    different places say different amounts.

    my two weigh 2.4kg and 2.6 kg but the vet says they should weight 2.2-2.3 kg,

    i thought they were standard rexes but they seem to be too small for standard and too big for minis

    Standard Rex are 2.72 - 3.62 kg (6 - 8 lbs)
    Mini Rex - 1.7-2.04 kg(3.75 - 4.5 lbs)

    Source: British Rabbit Council breed standards.
    Hope this helps!

    You should really use those weights as guidelines rather than hard and fast rules.

    Some animals will be bigger than standard, some smaller etc. Aslong as your buns arent obese or carrying too much fat then i wouldnt worry about.

    Animals are individuals and should be treated as such.
