    Striped kit? +Unknown color

    I made sure it got a good separate feeding for two nights and its nice and plump now. 🥰 It is the runt of the litter so the other piggies were knocking it off. It is still very silvery I agree! In some lightning it looks a beautiful silver color, in another lighting it picks up hints of an...

    Striped kit? +Unknown color

    Update: My friend thinks the pale kit is a chocolate frosty for those wondering! I also asked on a FB group for genetics and they also said chocolate ermine (non-extension chinchilla). <3 Considering the gene pairing, this is one very lucky color draw!

    Breeding a large buck to a small doe

    I will say that I've bred larger bucks to smaller does (I give them extra calcium and I'm 90% of the time at home/there for the delivery). They have delivered fine, BUT the babies did have bruising on the face as they came out. They grew up fine, but I would caution breeding them. You can breed...

    Line breeding?

    From what I've read and seen from other breeders feedback is you ideally can in-breed/line breed up to the 7th generation, but keep in mind the more you line breed the more it will highlight both good AND bad traits. I would be fine with breeding dadxdaughter/motherxson every so often to really...

    Questions about breeding holland lops

    Keep in mind you cannot show VM, you can however show BEW (Blue Eyed Whites which is double the vienna gene). I'd make sure to look at what colors you can and can't show. :)

    Blue Seal?

    This baby is somewhat hard to decipher. She is by a Blue Seal x Chocolate (BEW) pairing. Lilac & Blue Self Chin looks similar in photos I've seen. Wondering what she is color wise for confirmation. Her brother from the same litter. Chocolate seal? Both of them are darker in the face.

    Saved a fader, now what?

    Thank you! I will keep him until 4 months and re-evaluate. I figured sending specific instructions to a new home will be definitely a high priority.

    Saved a fader, now what?

    Question for those who have had experience with saving faders, what comes next? Storytime: I weaned my litter at 7 weeks and noticed one little boy was off (out of 6 other healthy siblings) and he started to fade. I gave him critical care, immediate response bolus (vitamins/minerals/B...

    "Harliquinized Tort"

    Thank you so much!

    "Harliquinized Tort"

    I've seen this off and on in my FB groups and I get confused. As I've been reading in order for Harlequin to exist, it needs to have at least one dominant agouti modifier (A) in order to show itself as it overrides the tort gene. Therefore a "tort harli" cannot exist. Then another website...

    Oh, Baby Bunnies

    Oh they are on free choice hay and eat moms pellets already! This was just an added treat I gave mine! :)

    Oh, Baby Bunnies

    So this is my 1st litter since I was a teen some 17 odd years ago. It's been awhile. I've read hundreds of pages at this point and watched tons of hours on rabbitry husbandry. This is just to preface. My babies are now 3 1/2 weeks old. I treat everyone with a small slice of banana every couple...

    Blue Tort Otter?

    Thank you everyone! I will have to amend her pedigree going forward (Lynx to Tort) when I breed her daughter. I appreciate it! Edit: Also is Cream and Fawn considered the same color? Some sites say Fawn is a dilute of Orange and Cream is a dilute of Fawn, just checking so I get those two...

    Blue Tort Otter?

    Thank you for the genes Caroline!!! <3 I added more photos of the kit: The kit above is losing the "stripe" of the tort daily, so I'm curious how she'll fully shed out. And mom who was sold to me as a Lynx as a baby (she was nervous and is in a patchy shed for her winter coat)...

    Blue Tort Otter?

    I've started breeding rabbits and I was sold a "Lynx" doe (I can get photos of her tomorrow) and bred her to an Orange broken. When I first got my "Lynx" she was super dark almost chocolate color and then shed out to pretty light. 4 kits were born; 1 was a false tri charlie, 2nd was a broken...

    Runt going hungry?

    So my kits are now 12-13 days old and have their eyes open. I have a runt that is about 1/2 the size of his littermates and the issue is the littermates I think kick him off the food because I'm finding the runt on the floor outside the box looking for food. Belly empty, mom just fed, doesn't...
