    3 week old bunnies in need of advice ASAP

    So on the second day I noticed some diarrhea in the bunnies, took out the oats from their diet and might reintroduced it to their diet later (probably putt too much). They did good after that. I still check them every day. They all get greens, hay, and the manna pro. And that’s all for now...

    3 week old bunnies in need of advice ASAP

    I cant seem to find those weeds but of the weeds I do have are attached. I’m not well educated so sorry about that. I know I do have strawberries so I’ll just give them those (although my brother might get mad, he loves his strawberries). For their diet, I give them a handful of weeds to all my...

    3 week old bunnies in need of advice ASAP

    Hey so I have this New Zealand Doe that had a litter May 6th. They are about 3 weeks old now, but I found the does remains outside this morning (she escaped, and was almost 2 weeks pregnant). I would have fostered her kits to my 2 other does (both harlequins) but it looks like they’re too old...

    Not a which color but more of which should I save?

    Black SM is a boy but I can breed him to my doe. I also don’t know what the sire looked like (we got her bred). But that sounds like a good plan.

    Not a which color but more of which should I save?

    Which would give me the most colors or range of colors? Would I be getting more blues and greys and blacks? Or would I get like agouti, and fawns/oranges along with those colors? Also after looking more into colors and color names, looks like they are Blue Silver Martens and NOT Otters so don’t...

    Not a which color but more of which should I save?

    Ok so recently I got a REW New Zealand doe and had her bred with one of her previous owners buck. Of the colors I got from them were solid black and blue, and black and blue otters. Craigslist post has more information and pics of the mom and bunnies So I REALLY want to save one from this...

    Lucky timing.

    :P Lucky, I had something similar happen with me. My doe was on day 41 and (please don't hate me) but I put the buck with the doe so when she does give birth its in the comfort of her home with her prepared nest. Put them together around evening, watched them for a while to make sure they're...

    So I wasn't able to post for some reason but now I can. Anyways I have bunnies that JUST opened their eyes and one had one eye that wasn't opened. No signs of anything unusual or anything, but I made the normal chamomile tea with some honey and as it was opening, there was A LOT of pus coming...

    Anal glands maybe TMI

    I personally do it every now and then to keep smell down (mostly because my mother doesn't like it when I bring them in) and when ever I'm about to sell a rabbit just because I do a whole grooming session the day or 1/2 days before I sell them depending on my schedule for the week.

    Doe eating kits?

    So I have this doe that I raised, her mom is a great mother and was hoping she would be like that as well, but she might not it by the looks of it. Some background info first: First litter (so I’m hoping I can cross off this as just nerves) She had 9 with one looks suspiciously close to a...

    Day 35...Still hasn't kindled

    Well, the only real things that will kick start labor is (preferably fresh) lavender, or a shot of oxytocin. Lots of the other things that ‘induce labor’ are really more like vitamins for the doe in case she was missing any and that is the reason that she hasn’t given birth. So things like tums...

    Hi I’m new to breeding rabbits and I have a few questions

    YES Pregnant rabbits are like the meanest things EVER (well at least for me they are). I can’t even think about handling them with out someone else with me to hold them. I have like 5 bite marks and a billion scratches on my hands.This all includes giving them meds, cutting their nails (which I...

    Hi I’m new to breeding rabbits and I have a few questions

    I would say you probably would have wanted to wait until about 6 months for your doe, but hopefully she’ll be ok. 6 falloffs is definitely great, with some of my does I’ll be happy to even get 4 in half an hour. No you don’t need to put them back together. I have honestly read a few things...

    Cross Breeding Project Advice

    So I only have magpies right now and already knew this from before. So after doing WAY more research trying to find what I was looking for, and looking for a rabbit, we found a purebred New Zealand White and will plan on breeding her later this year to a buck that I have. Hopefully. Sorry if...

    Cross Breeding Project Advice

    Ok so I have purebred harlequins and they take SOOO long to grow. I saw that one post but the only problem is that they're Japanese harlequins and mine are magpie. http://rabbittalk.com/a-few-questions-on-making-a-harlequin-new-zealand-t9115.html Although magpie is only mentioned once I saw that...

    Buck Won't Breed the Does?

    Add some grain or black oil sunflower seeds to his diet? Was going or thinking of doing that but my mom said that human food is not going to be for the rabbits sadly. Does he get any exercise? Yes he does but not as much any more because my mom deep cleaned the area where they normally would...

    Buck Won't Breed the Does?

    The does will usually start to run around him right when I put them in his cage but this isn't his first time which is confusing me cause if that was the case it would be more understandable so sadly not that. :(
