    Yeepers.... Hello again from a Zombie Rabbiteer.

    Howdy y'all I know it's been a few years since I've frequented the forum and my account has a layer of dust on it, but I'm cleaning it off and rejoining the living. :) Lets see, I've been raising meat mutts since 2015 and just this year picked up some show quality Satins from Tim Kingsbury and...

    Black NZ with mottled eyes question

    Yes, they both carry it as shown by the breeding. Just by chance they didn't produce it when bred together. Recessives are like that sometimes, you can't really prove that rabbits don't carry _____ recessive gene if they don't produce it, just the likelihood of them having it reduces...

    Differences between rex and nz rabbits?

    The bottom line is, unfortunately, that when you start mixing rabbits they quickly become a generic "rabbit" shape. There is truly no telling what breeds are in the mix unless you have an accurate pedigree depicting the mixing. I've got french lop/ English Lop / NZ / TAMUK /American mixes that...

    Differences between rex and nz rabbits?

    The rex fur texture is recessive so the moment you mix it with a normal coated breed it disappears in the offspring. Rex x Normal coated breed = 100% normal coated (provided the normal coated breed isn't a mix breed carrying the rex coat.) However, THOSE offspring are known to CARRY the rex...

    What color is this??

    Oxidized pelts sure can change coat colors! My blue self Belgian "yard rabbit" turns "chocolate" from; A. Running around in the sun and B. Being a gross buck who pees on himself 😏 Pictured is the dirty scoundrel, you can see the fresh coat growing in on his back and the brown molting out. So...

    What color is this??

    Normal black chinchilla, he's just got a dead/or/molting/sunburned/pee stained/oxidized coat. It turns the hairs brown like this and he should look nice and crisp after he molts into a fresh pelt 🙂

    Hi, breed check pretty pls

    No, Flemish Giant rabbits don't have the broken gene (which is Moody is displaying) nor do they have the harlequin gene (which is what Ashie is showing by being magpie). Moody actually gives me more of a New Zealand mix vibe, and FG/NZ mixes are pretty common a cross. (NZ also doesn't have the...

    Black NZ with mottled eyes question

    Yes, he can definitely be self chinchilla carrying REW. aaB_cchdcD_E_ You can check the eyes of the white kit at birth actually, red eyes will be hard to see while dark eyes (indicating an ermine/non-extension chinchilla) would look like little dark balls under the thin newborn kit skin...

    What color am I...Lynx, fawn, something else??

    If they were breeding for tricolor then a fawn "ee" would be helpful since tricolor is eje or ejej. Full extension "E" in the tricolor would turn things harlequinized instead of harlequin. A_B_C_ddEej would be a harlequinized opal instead of a blue fawn tricolor. So they would ideally be...

    What color am I...Lynx, fawn, something else??

    Blue fawn is an option and that's what it looks like to me. Opal: AaB_C_ddE_ Blue otter: ataB_C_ddEe Blue fawn: A_B_C_ddee The opal must also carry non-extension if this is the case. (Ee)

    Hand feeding newborn kits

    I thought it would be good to add these last stats to the bottle-fed bunny chronicles, I admit I was a little nervous about how they would do kindling their own litters but was relieved to have an utter lack of complications.

    Hand feeding newborn kits

    Bottle Fed Bunny update, Della Rose and Southern Belle had litters of their own! Quickly and easily, both kindled while I was in the rabbitry and were done in about 5 minutes tops. Della Rose had 10 kits and Southern Belle had a litter of 11! Both are great mothers and their kits are growing...

    Best breed for children under 6?

    I definitely agree with these lovely individuals above, rabbits typically don't care to be picked up even if they are picked up on a daily basis. Even if they were 100% hand raised and hand fed by you from BIRTH and you have the absolutely cutest videos of them willingly climbing into your lab...

    Attempted Grocery Store Quails

    Not to be a debbie-downer, I really hope they hatch! But that could also mean they are rotten and the gasses built up inside the egg shells cause them to float. This sounds like a common household test where if you are unsure if the eggs are still good to consume or not you place them into a...

    Astrex coated meat mutt project

    Alice ended up having very dense, rex-like fur. I was hoping with her adult molt it would come back in with thicker curls instead of dense wavy individual hairs. I guess we've got a good long wait with these kits to see what happens. Alice through the looking glass anyone? :lol: Right?! I...

    Astrex coated meat mutt project

    Nope, they are both still curly. I think Bravo's coat is deceptive because of the tipping, it starts to look like it's just a fuzzy rex coat or something but each individual hair is wavy. It's more noticeable on her forehead where it's thicker. I think it's at that stage where it's thickening up...

    Astrex coated meat mutt project

    You're right, it is Bravo! Bravo Shazza! (Haha, see what I did there? :P ) She's such a sweet little girl too, I was worried they'd have their momma's diva attitudes but so far they are much more laid back. Here's the litter average at 10 weeks old today, this will be my first litter to...

    Astrex coated meat mutt project

    Ah!! I love it Nymph! I think she'd made a great "patchy" kid :lol: I'm going to horde all the astrex from Alice's next three litters and see what happens, so they may end up being named but they may end up being culled due to the issue I'm dealing with. Hence the hoarding, lol. Hopefully she...
