    Opened eyed kits allowed to explore

    My does newest kits are 11 days old and I suspect tomorrow will have there eyes open. They are fat and healthy with fur but should I tip the nest box on its side so they can explore the cage? Then again I will just lay an old shirt on the cage in that area so they so they are still on some...

    12 kits 1 lactating doe

    My doe had her largest litter of 12 surviving kits. (14 orginally) I like the idea of removing the fattest for the morning and bring back at night but there's a problem I work 2nd shift. I usually take care of them around 930AM should I wake up extra early to pull out the fattest ones? I...

    One of my rabbits is holding his front paw in the air for the past 3ish weeks now and not trying to put any pressure on it. It doesn't feel broken (guessing hair line fracture?) I tried to look at his paw for a hay splinter but didn't see anything, I felt around his shoulder blade but it felt...

    Hide box poop collection?

    This make rabbit likes to poop in his hide! I tried moving around the cage. Then he pulled it the middle so I left it in HIS area of choice but this is what I see. (Look at pic) He doesn't pee in there but clearly poops in there. Do I just say oh well and dump the poop every few days or what...

    Floride water safe?

    The short question: Will floride from city water adversely effect rabbits development or breedability? Long story: I am currently in the city with the wonderful people "preventing" cavities with fluoridated water. :shock: I won't share my thoughts besides that I filter my personal drinking...

    Risk vs reward

    I am hopeing my doe is pregnant after breeding her 7 days ago. She seems sort of in a funk in her cage so to get some excercise and burn some steam I put her in my newest cage for an hour or so that's 7ft long to run around. The thing is she avoids me so much and stresses when I grab her to swap...

    Urine smell on doe fur?

    I just went to try and breed my doe and she smells like nasty buck (deer) urine lure. She is housed by herself and usually doesn't smell like anything. I smelt her back fur and even it stunk. Now my hands smell from picking her up. I will wash her cage with dish soap but am afraid to try and...

    Supplementing vitamin D

    Anyone know the proper dose of vitamin D3 for rabbits with little direct sunlight? Living in WI with the colder temps I have shut in the rabbits outside by putting plastic over the open side of the hutch. The hutches are facing north so even at sun rise it doesn't hit them directly. I know most...

    Rabbit poop cover scent

    Any hunters in here ever think of using there rabbits poop as foot wear cover scent? Nothing is going to be able to totally cover a deer's sense of smell but what about confuse the game a bit. I am thinking of stepping my boots into a bit of rabbit dung by the woods before hunting for small...

    Just did morning chores and noticed the most red urine I ever saw! It's usually a darker brown maybe with a hint of red but this is pretty red. Is it blood? I did an overall inspection on him and he is not cut. For his injured paw and sore hocks I did give him lots of willow branches if that...

    Sore hock or callus

    The short- Is this just considered a callus forming or the beginning of sore hock? Full story- My male breeder is under a year old on 14 gauge 1"x1/2" wire. His foot was not shiny I put on triple antibiotic ointment on it. It was dry and felt thicker. His hide has a solid piece of cardboard...

    Nest box cold weather problem?

    I breed my doe for the last litter of the year before winter gets a strong hold. The thing is I block my does hide box with the nest box so she doesn't have her kits in there.

    Peeing in it's hide

    Why does my buck pee on the cardboard lining his hide!?!? The rabbit is always by itself (except for breeding) in my hutch outside. The nights are getting cool as we move to a colder winter. I added a piece of cardboard under all 4 of my rabbits hides to block the wind with some added thin...

    Reabsorption/miscarriage

    I was trying to breed my doe a few times a week for the last month or so. Today she pulled fur when I never noticed a fall off. (Worse case scenario it's from her 10 week old son I had with her before I separated him. Yeah I now know that's too long) If the stress of her trying to be breed...

    Freezer camp day today and I froze the hides for later processing and put the feet AND 2 tails in a jar with 91% rubbing alcohol. I know for making "lucky" rabbits feet I soak in this solution then borax, wash, and wahala preserved feet. I would have liked the bone out but since it pulled off...

    Stress affect breedability in Doe

    Does the stress of having kits in the same cage as the doe for 12 weeks cause the doe to not be "in the mood?" I know nutrients plays a big part so I'm going to start feeding spinach and light affects breeding being in WI the days are starting to get shorter. Besides that could it be the kits...

    Fur mites survive on human blood?

    I'm currently treating my rabbits since they have walking dandruff and even though they are outside and I tried to be careful I have one bite on my leg and see some on me. I can't find much related to humans and them. Can they jump or only crawl? If I keep the rabbits outside like always can...
