    what is this colour/pattern?

    not any of mine, unfortunately, but i was watching a video of a woman feeding rabbits on okunoshima (rabbit island) in japan and noticed this one dark rabbit with really odd markings. it looks like when a dog has ticking over large white markings, but i'm pretty sure that sort of thing doesn't...

    ivermectin sensitivity

    one of my champagne/nzr/harlequin mix mutt bucks had mites so i gave him an ivermectin injection about three days ago. he hadn't been eating much the subsequent days, so i was preparing to move him to a hospital cage for closer observation this evening and found him dead in his cage. he was in...

    looking for pelts!

    as a few of you know, i do hide tanning, and it's actually becoming a source of income for me, which is nice! i have a little goal to have a 'bunny museum' of sorts, a collection of pelts from as many colour and coat combinations as i can acquire to showcase the huge diversity in rabbit coat...

    raw feeding prices?

    i know some of you raw feed your dogs on your rabbits, but do any of you sell to raw feeders? since the money for me seems to be in the pelts, i have produced far more meat than my family can eat, and i'm looking for other ways to use it. we do sometimes sell our meat to friends/coworkers but...

    wait time before butchering (fenbendazole)

    i figured it might be easier to make a new thread in case my question got buried etc. a few posts down i wrote about how what i thought was e. cuniculi wiped out 16 of my growouts last week. i immediately began treating them with fenbendazole and continued treatment for the recommended 6 days...

    mysterious circumstances? kinda urgent

    this morning i had to put down a growout. this kit had been doing fine yesterday and last night, and this morning we go out and it's thrashing around on its site/back in its cage. the symptoms were similar to a kit i had to euthanize last year, so i was wondering if anyone knew what was going...

    keeping the ground dry?

    i keep my growout rabbits in a colony pen behind my house. it is generally well-shaded but there is a tarp over one half of the pen to allow them some constant shade. the problem is that our "winter" here in texas is just a rainy season. every time it rains the ground gets incredibly muddy...

    doe not producing milk

    well, it's not quite that simple. one of my proven rex does had a litter of 9 (one DOA) a week ago and has since lost two more kits, seemingly for no reason. the first one died within a couple days of delivery, so i assumed it was a failure to thrive. but i had a kit die last night too at a...

    can you stunt a rabbit's growth?

    worth showing?

    i have this handsome little castor rex buck, but it seems like he's gotten as dark as he ever will, and i'm wondering if he'd really be worth showing? he is much much lighter than the castors i see online. i was hoping to show him and my rew doe at a couple shows but if he's not gonna do well...
