This is Onyx our black silver fox buck. When we first got him we where told he was a doe. Being our first rabbit purchase we learned a very valuable lesson on the sex change fairy. We where going to return him but his personality was everything we wanted in a rabbit. He is the opposite of skittish and is very affectionate. I tease my husband that if he got out in the wild he would be dead in a few days because when he hear loud noises or dogs barking he runs up to the door of the cage instead of hiding. He is my husbands favorite he follows my husband around in the makeshift run (i need to get a video).
This is Ruby our black silver fox doe. She is Onyx's half sister. She's my sweetie, she does not like the run but she is okay with being held for a little bit and being pet in her cage. She had a surprise litter and she was a lot younger than we wanted to breed her. But she did a great job as a mommy even though she had one DOA and one alive. We have just rebreed her on june 7th to Topaz.
This is Topaz our blue silver fox buck. He is the reason my husband and I have started saying things like "thump you" and "something to thump about". Topaz is not a big fan of pets or really any social interaction in his cage. If he is not warned that we are coming by his cage he goes to the corner where we can't see him and thumps until we leave. He's by no means aggressive ( I have no patients with getting bit or lunged at) and he's the best behave one to give "check-ups".
This is Sapphire our blue silver fox doe. After finding out that we indeed had 2 bucks and 1 doe we reluctantly started looking for another doe. These pictures are when we first got she has now lost her baby fluff, soon she will go out side but for now she is inside so she can be comfortable with us. Sapphire is full of spunk and has learned treat time very very well. She also loves the outside run and seems like she will have a similar personality as Onyx.

Beautiful rabbits.... you post was just the right length, because we love rabbit photos
The sex change fairy is real! I had a doe that was shown in a triple show that ended up being a buck when I went to breed her/him.... I checked, a friend checked and three judges checked!!.... a month later I had a buck... don't go too hard on the breeder.
(correct pedigree?... maybe dis them for that... paperwork is important! )
Working towards a farm to raise animals with respect and care.
I don't think they did it on purpose but it does strike me as weird with the pedigree. I won't be buying from them again because of the pedigree mess up, giving me the final "correct" pedigree with the sex blank makes me think he had some sort of idea that he gave me a buck. He could have asked me to double check or warned me since his half sister and him where caged together... thankfully he was not mature yet. He did say we could return him for a doe. But like I said he grew on us. I learned a valuable lesson for selling our own rabbits though.
