You shouldn't seperate baby bunnies from their mom until they are 8 weeks old.  They are still being weaned off their mommy's milk and are getting used to eating solids.  Unless your a breeder I don't see how someone could knowingly sell you a 5 week old bunny.

Didn't ask any of that, but ok. "I" didn't seperate any bunny, I bought a bunny that had been weaned for 2 weeks.

I know of at least one feed store in my area that wants/sells babies at 4 weeks. It's really just horrible. Your asking for a sick rabbit, taking them away from their mama that early.
