No... REW's cannot hide anything in the C allele.
In order of dominance:
So in order for it to be a REW, it HAS to be "cc" - complete lack of pigmentation.
If the kit out of this buck is indeed a REW, then the Buck cannot be aSeal as Seals are "c(chl)c(chl)"... it...
A. What do you breed?
Mini Rex - Specializing in Lynx
Rex (on a limited scale)
B. How long have you been breeding?
I seriously started breeding March 2004- but my general rabbit experience and knowledge dates back 16 years :shock:.
C. Have you bred any other breeds?
Years ago I had Mini Lops...
Linebreeding is more of breeding to a Grandparent or 1/2 related Aunt/Uncle - it's more "removed" than Inbreeding.
Inbreeding is more of Parent to Offspring, Fullly related Aunt/Uncle to Niece/Nephew, Full and 1/2 Siblings. Basically closer in relation and more similar genetically than...
If I have a particular gene in my herd that I want to solidify, I will breed two full siblings together without any second thoughts. As Pam mentioned, you can easily "pull out" the genes you WANT from doing full sibling crosses, but also due to the limited gene pool - don't be surprised if you...
Personally, especially if you aren't experienced with palpating... I'd take her into the vet.
What concerns me is the fact that she DID begin pulling fur right around her due date... I'd get her looked at for the possibility of a stuck kit.
Construction and design of a "Bunny Barn" is entirely up to you - whatever you feel fits your situation.
Me, I'm in the city and have a limited amount of space... so I justhave my stackers on the side of my house (in the back yard) with a plywood "roof" constructed over the stackers. The...
I think we've got it done!!!
I have plans to go to the Bakersfield show myself... I am willing topick the bun up in Hesperia on my way to Bakersfield. ThenI've been able to secure a ride for him from the Bakersfield show onFeb. 10th to the Turlock show on Feb. 24th with a fellow...
I'm still working on it from my end... don'tgive up just yet, Show season is gearing up and people are travelinggood distances to attend ;).
There's a show coming up in Bakersfield on Feb. 10th and a FlemishGiant show in Oakdale on March 17th. If all else fails, I'msure there would at least...
That's too bad, I (and many others) would have LOVED to see this little one make it to adulthood and also see some kind of pictures.
Someone on the genetics group suggested it could be a gene similarly relatedto White Doberman's. Someone else suggested a "Reverse Tan" (which sounds similar)...
Ok... a bit of an understatement, but they are all very eager to see pictures of this baby on the Genetics group!
They haven't been able to give any insight just yet, but if this baby does live and if you're friend decides she doesn't want to keep it -I've gotsomeone that seriously wants it.;)...
Sorry, not a French Lop breeder... but I do know about rabbit genetics! :)
You can pretty much rest assured that they'll be about Momma's size...BUT if any of these babies happen to get bred to any dwarf sizedrabbits, then you could have a mixture of sizes on your hands.
He sounds like he's within weight range to be a Holland Lop.
It's hard to tell from the picture, I first thought harlequin coloring,but it also looks like it may be the way the sunlight is hitting him...do you have any other pictures that better show his coloring?
If you can get a photo, that would be awesome!
With your permission, I'd like to share this with the Rabbit Genetics group I'm a part of, I'm sure there's a logical answer behind this suprise arrival that theymight be able toshed some light on.
How much does Digger weigh and approximately how old is he? Do you have any other pictures?
My initial guess is going to be a Harlequin Mini Lop or Harlequin Holland Lop.
Harlequin refers to the coloring, although there is alsotheHarlequin BREED which can make things confusing if you...
They should all be separated (at least bygender) by 7-8 weeks of age. Mainly because yes, it ispossible for them to reproduce at (and slightly after) that age andbecause it helps resolve any fighting issues.
Yes, rabbits will mount each other (females too) to showdominance. The smell you were...
