how long do male rabbits stay in heat

Customer Question

how long do male rabbits stay in heat?

male rabbits do not have a heat cycle, that is they do not have estrus cycles. Female rabbits do.

Howver, female rabbits are always in heat. They do not have a normal estreaus cycle like most other animals.

The mating season for male rabits is about February through September.

The mating habits of the male are subject to the available femails, available food, and density of rabitt population.
