      How long have you had her? Sometimes it can take new bunnies a little while to get organized. You can try removing the tray and then seeing what corner she naturally chooses for her toilet area, then add the tray there. Bunnies are very scent and touch (whiskers) oriented when things are close, so she they usually arent using their eyes as much as we’d think for moving around their enclosures.

      Dana is right, a rabbit can navigate well in low lights, which means they employ their other senses, not just their eyesight. Blind rabbits often function very well, but all rabbits, blind or not, will want to find their own toilet spot and also mark their new home a bit with poop, especially near entrances.
