    Strange (to Me) Kit 🐰

    A bit late, but that happens all the time if they get pee or fluids stuck to them when they are younger... their skin grows faster than the fur get itself clean so you see stripes of clean fur and dirty fur

    Help me evaluate my new Polish!

    Both those bucks in the most recent pictures are overposed. You can't tell their structure from those pictures. Of the original pictures, my favorite is the broken black doe. Broken blue doe is nice as well. I wouldn't worry about the dewlap. Brood does just get that with age. Definitely my...

    Rabbit Hutch/Cage Wire Size for FLOOR

    1"x 1/2" is the standard for cage floor wire. Galvanized after welding is usually preferred for rabbit cages. If you are building cages you want to make sure that the side with the 1/2" gaps is at the top so that the rabbits weight is more evenly distributed.

    Help with chinchilla Mini Lop Show standards

    You might want to make your own thread, but in mini lops you can breed pretty much any color together. Chinchilla x black is fine. Chestnut is the most likely color; unless the black is a hidden steel (which is common in mini lops), then steels are common too

    Types of harlequins

    Harlequins are always called by the black-base color, not the orange-base color. So cream harlequin or fawn harlequin isn't a thing. The pheomelanin/orange pigment can range from light cream to red, but they are the same genetically (aside from rufus modifiers) and have the same color name. The...
