    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

    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...

    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...

    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

    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...

    Is my bunny moulting?

    Today I noticed that my chestnut Netherland dwarf bunny’s fur looks strange. He has a big patch on his back that looks darker than the rest of his fur. He just turned 6 months old. Is he moulting? Will it go back to normal?

    How much banana and how often?

    My bunny Loki just discovered that he likes banana. I gave him a 1/4 of a slice to try 3 days in a row and his tummy seemed to handle it fine. How much banana can he have and how often?

    At what age is a baby bond no longer considered a baby bond?

    I have two bunnies. The breeder told me that one is a male and one is a female. I separated them before they reached sexual maturity. I kept them side by side so they could still see and smell each other. Well, today the vet checked again for me and they are both definitely boys. Link is 4...

    Do you have to brush Netherland dwarf bunnies?

    I was wondering if I should brush my Netherland dwarf bunnies. I have not tried yet. If I need to, then what kind of brush should I get? How often should it be done?I am sure every bunny is different, but do Netherland dwarf bunnies like to be brushed in general?

    Have my bunnies manipulated me into filling up their hay racks too frequently?

    I am a new bunny owner and I have a lot of learning to do. I notice that I throw out a lot of hay. My bunnies have their hay racks right beside their litter boxes so that they can eat and pee and poop to their hearts content. So far they are both pretty good at keeping most of the pee and a...
