    When is the best time to buy sheets and bedding?

    No real idea but I’d guess at January sales…Black Friday is a lot of hype but the retailers want to shift their leftover stock after Christmas has passed.

    Awesome! I struggled to even get one of each, my stud buck came up from England. He’s a darling but not the brightest. I’ve black self and black harlequin. Now I’ve just purchased a breeding pair of mini plush lops although won’t be putting them together until spring. Happy rabbit keeping!

    Different coated kits, is there a preference?

    @2CrazyFools just reread your post about your Avante-Garde Reza line (amazing idea btw, I follow your page on fb already and if I was not across an ocean I’d definitely want to get involved). In your opinion, is there a difference phenotypically between the two kits above? ie. would one be...

    Hello! I also breed standard Rex, amazing rabbits IMO however I might be a bit biased 😅 as @CO Int said, have fun- that’s definitely one of the most important things. Do you have two females and a male? And what colouring? Lol at all the questions!

    Rabbit HATES Dieting

    My rabbits are kept on hardstanding and I collect wild greens for them, however I’ve got too many rabbits to supply more than a bowlful a day each…plus I’m sure they’d run to fat if I let them have too much😅

    Where did this infant rabbit come from?

    I’m pretty sure a ‘peanut’ refers to a kit from two dwarf parents, that carries two copies of the recessive dwarf gene therefore making it incompatible with life (people seem to disagree somewhat on this point but idk). I know they only crop up in litters where there is dwarfism present, so any...

    Skin and teeth problems! Help!!!!

    Oh no! I’m sorry I don’t have much advice other than your rabbit‘s teeth are misaligned and overgrowing, possibly through injury but more likely due to genetics…they can be trimmed but I wouldn’t know how to go about doing it. Making sure they have enough wood or fibrous plants to eat/chew is...

    Lovely! Are those black harlequins I see? Look the same as my six week olds did (mine are standard though)

    Different coated kits, is there a preference?

    Hey all, okay so I have two litter mates, both black self (standard Rexs) but with very different coat textures. I understand that they lose their baby coat but I imagine it is still a some kind of marker for their future coat? If this is true, for breeding purposes would the slightly astrex (?)...

    To buy or not to buy

    Firstly, thank you guys for your responses! @Olbunny @ladysown @RabbitsOfTheCreek excellent advice, echoed my own thoughts but hearing it from people with way more experience helped make my decision to…buy the doe! I umm’d and ahh’d but she has great conformation, colour and is still young so I...

    Has anyone made a Purse/Bag before???

    I haven’t made a bag but I’ve made a cushion cover (so soft my sons fight over it) and a muff for cold weather (rabbit fur inside and red velvet out)…rabbit skin is easy to hand sew (which I prefer because it’s quieter!) so that’s an option if you don’t have/want to use a sewing machine. If you...

    To buy or not to buy

    Okay so I’m having a difficult time deciding whether or not to buy a doe I’ve been told is VERY territorial…plus points would be she’s a plush lop which I struggle to get where I live and she is a excellent example. However the rabbits I currently breed from have wonderful temperaments and I’d...

    Cat injury

    Oh Cosima it's always sad to lose an animal, more difficult when you don't know what's happened to them❤️ Maybe Blitz might still make it home, if not she had your love and attention. On the bright side, there are always more cats to love!
