    Question about healing wounds on the show table

    Thank you! The doe that brought the question on was purchased with sore hocks already. She was our first purchase and I didn’t check the rabbit before we left.

    We are newbies and just starting out. I got a matched pair of Lynx Rex from a breeder. The dam has lots of tricolor in her pedigree and the sire has lots of Amber. I ended up with seven kits which are now seven weeks old. Four of them I feel confident (ish...) are Lynx. The other three look like...
