i was under the impression from reading a couple of articles if they where under X weeks old they get the virus but cannot die from it as there immune system has not developed enough for the virus to attack it properly and only have like a cold looking symptoms so they become immune. what you are saying all rabbits will die which does not appear to be happening my way as there numbers are picking up again but it went round like a wild fire last year

Trua mate however with VHD it does not work like that...yes under 4 weeks they dont get it and normally they will live normal lives after..but because of the virus if one gets it when older thier imunity means nout it will kill 95-100% of all rabbits within 48 hours

Best go get your ass up there then before he gets someone who will knock em off!
Remember kits can breed at only a matter of weeks old and if you do the math one single breeding pair can be responsible for over a quater of a million offspring in one year (in ideal circumstances and no predation).
