    Two new French Angora

    Hello, my highly anticipated French Angora pair are finally here from Six Gun! They were on transport for much longer than originally supposed to be and have lost condition I'm guessing from traveling stress. The doe is extremely skinny while the buck is underweight, both are eating hay and...

    Tattoo pen recommendations

    I'm finally going to invest in a tattoo pen for the rabbits and was interested in suggestions and recommendations from anybody who has used them. I'm down to a choice between the kbtatt pen and the EZ tattoo pen unless someone has another suggestion in the under $100 range that comes as a kit.

    I have kept back a black/orange harlequin doe out of a blue tort doe and tricolor buck. So she carries the dilute, because of her mom. So aa_B_C_Dd_eej? If I breed her to a blue tort, aa_B_C_dd_ee.... Could she throw blue/fawn harlequin along with the black/orange? As well as the possibility...

    How old for Holland Lops for their first breeding

    I'm trying to decide if I should breed a young doe I kept back before we do our baby break for summer. She was born mid-November, she'll be 20 weeks old when I'm planning on breeding my older does for the last time this spring. I know that Hollands mature around 4-5 months typically. I would...

    Help - kit with head tilt

    I have a two week old kit with severe head tilt and balance issues. Since they are still in the box it can get away with nestling up next to the wall of the box. None of the other litter mates are acting ill so I'm wondering if it's an injury? Maybe falling out of the box? What can I do to help...

When I got the box out to check the kits, one has a decent sized scratch that seems pretty deep, the skin is gaping instead of clotted shut. What can I do to help this kit, and...

    Thought I'd share my set up here. It's working out so far, I haven't had any problems with mold and I'm keeping the mats pretty thin . Alternating between wheat fodder and barley fodder and throwing in some boss. I'm still testing out soaking times. I've done anywhere from 6 to 24 hour soaks...

    French Angora

    I've been thinking about angoras lately, and this french angora showed up on craigslist tonight... I just was wondering how well they do as fiber rabbits vs. meat rabbits, I know they can be used as a dual purpose rabbit. They would have more upkeep and I'm sure a slower growth rate than a...

    Wild (cottontail?) kit

    I got a text last night about 6pm. "Would you like a tiny baby bunny?" I immediately responded with "Where, when and how" They were at their parents house, out in the country, and their dogs were way too interested in something, and they found it. I'm the only person they know with baby bunny...
