Screamer - kit that screams when you pick it up ... some have habitual screamers, some only do it from surprise, but it is very unsettling when it happens to you :lol:

Chitter - the sound a bunny makes when it is happy to see you ... sort of like the sound a cat makes when hunting.
cheers - AnnClaire

well, if they just screamed, they would be "screamers", but adding the urination aspect, I would call them "screaming pissers" and hope they grow out of it.

I have a REW sr doe that still screams at the gentlest touch....hence the name "Flake"

What about meat rabbit parts nicknames?
I saw post in the Recipes area referring to hind quarters as "kickers". :lol:
Are there any others?

I call 'REW's Ruby Eyed Whites. They seem a little less Rabbit of Caerbannog with 'ruby' eyes instead of 'red' ones. And, for those of you who didn't see Monty Python's "The Holy Grail", the Rabbit of Caerbannog was the Killer Bunny, er, Killer Rabbit.

Oh, and REW is pronounce 'Roo' when talking to bunny folks.


DH can also be Dratted Husband or Darn Husband or .....

And EA for English Angora. In case it hasn't been mentioned yet.

Same here, I never call them red eyed whites because if you look at them they aren't really red to me, but light blueish, pinkish, rubyish color. :) I think its more fitting.
