    Breeding true dwarf and false dwarf

    I have heard that males should be smaller than the female when breeding is that true? I have a female who is 2 lbs and a male who is 3 lbs. The female has wonderful type and her temperament is good. My male’s type is weaker but he has an amazing temperament. Would I be able to breed them?

    Does anyone give their bunnies camomile? A woman who sells bunny treats on Etsy says that camomile is good for bunnies and calms stressed out bunnies. She puts the flowers in her treats and gives the flowers to them in a bowl. Is this true or just a way to sell her treats?

    Grumpy Bunny

    Thanks for letting me know that early handling does not have an effect. I don’t feel so bad. I had heard that females are more territorial but I have never experienced it before. I have to wait until she is 6 months to have her spayed but that is the plan. I am worried about how I am going...

    Grumpy Bunny

    I just got a new female Netherland dwarf doe. She is four months old. She is very grumpy and I am afraid of her. If I put my hand in her cage she grunts and lunges even if I am just changing her water bowl. She had only been with me for 2 days. I know she needs time to feel comfortable. When...

    Is this a good quality lynx ND

    Hello, I am thinking of getting another bunny. This buck is 6 months old. I am still learning about how to pick a good quality bunny. I am reading the Netherland dwarf guide book. Would he be good for breeding, show or pet? What are your opinions. Is lynx a hard colour to work with?

    Bunnies fed yogurt and jam

    I have been seeing weird posts about things people feed their rabbits. Last week on kijiji I saw a woman rehoming a rabbit with digestive problems. She fed her rabbit poor quality pellets (bonanza) No hay because the rabbit doesn’t tolerate hay and yogurt to help with the digestive problems...

    How long should bonding sessions be?

    Day 2 of bonding. I kept it short. Set a timer for 15 minutes. It was all good. Do I only do one short session a day or a few a day? Increase by how much time each day?

    How long should bonding sessions be?

    If things are going well with bonding is it better to do short sessions or long sessions?

    Teenager bunny into everything!!

    I really like those Ikea crates. I was thinking of going anyway to get one of those doll beds that everyone has for their bunnies and a cat tunnel. I will have to check out the crates as well. Thanks

    Teenager bunny into everything!!

    My bunnies were neutered almost 2 weeks ago and my white one named Loki has all of the sudden found all of the places that I was a little worried were not quite bunnyproof. He has left them all alone until yesterday. He has discovered that he can fit under the couch. I kept shooing him away...

    Is my rabbit a boy or girl?

    Boy for sure. Same thing happened to me. I was told girl when my bunny was young but then I noticed testicles and the vet confirmed boy. It happens frequently.

    Has anyone bonded bunnies before 6 - 8 weeks after neuter

    I am going to start bonding my bunnies around December 24th. They are both neutered and that will be the 6 week mark. I am curious if anyone has ever tried bonding earlier than 6 weeks. I would love to know if it was successful or disastrous. Don’t worry I am going to wait the full 6 weeks...

    Neutered bunnies recovering

    Link looks much better today. There is no bleeding. I think his incision looks ok as far as I can tell. He is still a bit tired but he is eating and pooping and peeing. Loki is pretty much back to normal.

    Neutered bunnies recovering

    My bunnies were neutered today. My white bunny Loki is recovering quicker than my brown one Link. Loki is eating a bit of hay and he ate a bit of greens and has been pooping a lot. His eyes look alert. Link is not recovering as fast. He looks very drowsy still. He ate a bit of romaine...

    Bonding- should I wait 6 or 8 weeks

    My bunnies are getting neutered on Tuesday. I know I am supposed to wait 6-8 weeks before trying to bond. If I wait 6 weeks, then bonding day will be December 24th and I will be home for the next 12 days on winter break. If I wait 8 weeks, then I will be back at work. My bunnies are Netherland...
