I'm finding a problem with my rabbit care. The rabbits are healthy, well muscled, and producing litters like crazy. However when I take them to shows they are so lean compared to the rabbits there. They aren't rounded up in to fluffballs like the other commercial rabbits but a bit lanky. It's not type. They have the type for that shape. They just stay lean running around the colony and being fed on mostly clover hay with supplemental pellets. I think they look quite healthy and meaty but they place low because they aren't as filled out. When butchered they have a slight bit of fat and tons of muscle. Should they really be that round or is that just show people over feeding a little to try to get a thicker feeling rabbit for show purposes and the fact the rabbits are in small cages instead of hopping around colonies? Am I ever going to compete well or sell well with my lean rabbits or will I have to shove all young in cages and feed them on only pellets so they are filled out more?
