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?
