        So I have had male rabbits in the past but never a female and I don’t want to make a vet appointment if this is perfectly normal. She eats perfectly normal, drinks about half her bowl a day, LOVES her hay. All her poops are normal, she plays and runs and tosses her toys around. No discharge, no watery eyes, no runny nose. But her butt looks like this….kind of swollen and red. She’s only been eating solid foods for two weeks so maybe it’s that? I got her from someone who accidentally had babies and was looking to get rid of them all. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Sorry for low quality photo. She is very wiggly haha

          Considering it sounds like you recently received her, I would say a vet visit, even if nothing is particularly wrong, would be good to get a baseline. It does look dirty? but honestly hard to assess anything w/ a photo of private areas unless it’s very significant, as usually some palpitation and expression of that area is required to get a full view of everything.

            Sounds like your girl is doing great otherwise, but the red, swollen butt might be worth checking out. Sometimes, diet changes or stress can cause irritation. Since she’s new to solid foods, that could be the culprit. However, if it doesn’t improve soon, or if she seems uncomfortable, a quick vet visit might be the best move to make sure it’s nothing serious. Better safe than sorry.
