The male has better coloring with stronger colors, he's the one with the bigger patch on his flank and the black lines on his forehead.
The female has a slightly better mane. I havent decided who to keep yet, will be keeping both for a long time till I do. One factor that influences things is if I keep the male I can give the female to a breeder friend so I wont lose track of her in case something happens. But if the male grows up to have a horrible mane I'll keep the female. Only time will tell.
Why not hang a sheet of Plexiglass over the front of his cage? That way he cant spray you, and you can keep him till you get what you are looking for out of him.
When his cage was closed I had panels blocking him yes, but when changing the water bowl I had to open the door and thats when he got me.
You know that spraying is a sign of love. I used to have a buck who would jump on me every chance he got but he would also spray all the time.
I knew it was a sign of love yes, but it's still an habbit I couldnt tolerate. Edward did spray for a little while when younger but grew out of it quickly. Boulette started it older and got worse over the 6 months preriod I tolerated it. Also, since he was so beautiful, everyone wanted to look at him when visiting and I always worried he might spray them too, wich he did once to a person who went to see him against my warning.
So did you ever find a taker for poor little Boulette? I'd be happy to help him complete his part in the circle of life, But I can't really come from Texas just to get some rabbit meat.
The idea of eating him still grossed me out so I ended up giving him away to a coworker 2 weeks ago who was curious what rabbit tasted like.
also sorry for being absent latelly, I was taken to the hospital in an ambulance this week due to respiratory distress caused by a cold + my ashma going out of control.

Since my rabbits have never been in the house, I have never considered culling a buck for spraying. I could make a long list of the animals [and children] that have got pee, or poop in my face, or mouth. For me...That kind of thing is not too troubling .....
