    Are Autumn olive (Elaeagnus umbellata) safe?

    Autumn olive (Elaeagnus umbellata) are very very much found every where here. I never see deer or any thing eat them, but every search I've done says they're OK to eat and wild rabbits/deers/etc often eat the twigs/leaves/and olive like fruits. Does any one here have any ideas? I don't want...

    Has any one had problems with kits and shavings?

    I had a gorgeous litter of 10 French Lop babies, just recently at the 2 week old mark they started dying off and I could not figure out why. The last one I thought to pry open and "check" the whole body out cause I just could not figure out how nice healthy kids I kept finding dead in the box...

    Sherwood Forest Feeds?

    I was reading and looking over their rabbit pellets, they have a no-grain feed base but don't say any idea of what is in it? Is that even really possible or safe for that matter? I that they needed some amount of grain to get every thing they needed and be fatter and not just survive. Has any...

    How durable is tanned rabbit?

    I'm wondering, how durable rabbit with and with out fur is? Is it strong enough to stand some pull and not rip easily or ? I'm going to start tanning some hides soon...and I have this 'idea' floating around but if the hides aren't close to being as durable as cow then it probably won't work.

    Opinions on French Lop...

    Well dad finally got bit, couldn't deal with just having mine to mess with so he has 'his' rabbits now lol. He's not really interested in showing but if they're going to be here they might as well be show rabbits for me to take with me when I show mine. I got down to picking out 4 from 12 of...

    EMERGENCY: Mini Rex in Trouble!

    I've already called the vet, said it was a hopeless case that he'd just die, I could bring him in and have him put down or could deal with it myself :( . How ever considering he's had a horribly long trip here (over 10 hours on the road) in the last 2 weeks and he's lasted this long I'm hoping...

    About 2 weeks started having issues. The jersey my dad bought back in September which was down hill at the time any way because the guy that had her thought he could starve her into drying up even though she was already pregnant and not have to milk her, he instead caused massive weight loss...

    Trying Natural Again...

    I'm taking another look at moving to natural feeding. Slow growth rate is fine, doesn't bother me. Actually may be a plus considering I wish my juniors would some times take it slower in growth. The last time I tried was a failure, every one switched over just fine with out any poop or GI...

    I had a question come up about honeysuckle. Is it safe to make rabbit toys from/for them to munch? No one can seem to find a direct answer (even when looking at posts on here, first thing I suggested to do besides a google for it). Thanks in advance!

    I posted on another board asking about if pumpkin was safe to feed rabbits, know to use little at a time, but just got the why would you even do that and not a straight answer. So can I feed pumpkins from my garden that are left over from canning? I have searched and read seeds are okay and...
