We suggest to check first if there are skin problems on your rabbit. Flakings, itchiness as well as rashes and thickening of the skin may indicate skin irritations that may lead to fur loss. Biting and licking of the affected part may also cause fur loss which may predispose your rabbit to develop "hairball". In cases where skin problems are imminent, refer immediately to your veterinarian for proper treatment.
In addition, sexual maturity of rabbits range from 3 to 8 months depending on the breed, and breeding may result to pregnancy. If suspected for pregnancy, minimize stressful conditions (such too hot environment or constant playing and exposure to other pets) and provide appropriate diet and nutrition. Separation of male from the female may not be necessary unless otherwise, fighting and injuries are inevitable.
