My rabbits coat has turned yellow

Does anyone know why their fur turned yellow?

***Moderator Comment***
What color was the coat to start with?

I'm pretty sure the reason is sunlight, which 'rusts' the pigment in the fur. Black turns brown, brown fades to a brassy color...perhaps this is what you're noticing? If so, at the next molt, the fur will grow in bright and renewed. To prevent rust, you'll need to figure out how to provide substantial shade for the rabbits.

Hope this helps.

A yellow coat could be due to hutch stains if the rabbit is more of a lighter color rabbit.

Try using dry corn starch. rub it into the coat, then brush it out.

Hope this helps :)
