How to get a rabbit in prime show condition?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Fang-of-fenrir » Wed Oct 17, 2018 8:55 pm

Just wondering if anyone has any tips or tricks, especially for rex. Does anyone have a specific feed (i'm from Australia so most of the brands arnt here, I'll be making my own from something similar), or a specific way to groom or anything to get their rabbits looking the best they can? And Is it better to let rabbits get lots of exercise daily?

Personally I've never had a ton of luck, but here's something I was told when I first started showing:

If they are starting to molt and you want to move it along, feed a teaspoon or 1/2 teaspoon of calf manna or black oil sunflower seeds (you should be able to find those, at least) once a day. The extra fats will help them blow their coats so they're at least done molting sooner.

Best of luck!
