    Are Rex/Mini Rex rabbits hypoallergenic?

    I heard that they are? Is this true? My sister really wants a bunny, but she is allergic to my Lops & Lionheads.

    My daughter fed our 8 week old bunnies cucumbers and carrots!

    She thought she was helping. She was giving treats to our older buns & then gave the tinies treats as well. Now 1 of them has an upset belly, pudding like poops. I took away pellets & put it on hay only & added some rolled oats. Is there anything else I can do to save this little one?

    What are the odds of all males?

    I have 5 Holland lop kits. 6.5 weeks old. I attempted to sex them today and they all appear to be bucks. What are the odds of all of them actually being bucks? I have never sexed rabbits this young before. Is it harder than older rabbits?

    fat rabbit? need advice

    I have a doe with 3.5 week old kits. She has a big ole fat belly, but i can very easily feel all her ribs, spine and hip bones, they feel sharp. So when I refer to the rabbit weight chart with the 1-5 scale; very thin-obese, i'm not sure where she falls. I'd say she's a 2, but has a big round...

    Any lionhead breeders?? Kit question

    My lionheads had a litter of 7 kits on the 18th of Oct. Why do some of the kits have fur all over and others do not? I know the black V means double manned, but does that mean the other kits are single manned? Or did their fur just come in

    Rabbit food for young rabbits

    I feed Manna Pro to my adult rabbits. I have 12 kits in the nest box and need a young rabbit food. I cannot get Manna Pro GRO formula in my area without paying almost $20 to ship it. My nursing does HATE the oxbow young rabbit feed. Are there any recommendations on another young rabbit pellet food?

    Suddenly spraying! Help!

    My sweet, loveable, cuddly buck is suddenly spraying when i go near him! He also keeps popping out his penis when i pick him up. WTH is his deal?! He never did this before. I realize neutering will help, but he is 7 months old and i figured he was past the puberty stage. He fathered kits a month...

    Smaller kit-should i feed?

    I have 4 day old kits in the nest box. 1 of them looks a bit runty, he doesn't look as plump as his 4 siblings. Should i flip mama and let him nurse? Or supplement him? I included pics just because. Haha

    Skinny doe

    My doe gave birth yesterday, and I noticed a week or so ago she was pretty boney. I would feel her shoulder blades, hip bones, spine, ribs all prominently. I have been feeding her unlimited pellets, grass hay, 1/4 cp oatmeal and she gets a large handful of greens daily. But she is not gaining...

    We're ready for babies!

    Our Juliette is due anyday. Since she's an indoor bunny, i just stuck a tupperware box in her cage. I figured it was time since she started ripping the stuffing out of the back of my couch. (she came to me pregnant. So I'm winging it)

    Is my lionhead a showable color?

    This is Lily, my daughters want to do 4-H next year and show her. But I'm unsure if she is an accepted color for lionheads. I know they have only been recently accepted as a showable breed and have some restrictions. I'm not even really sure what her color is classified as. Any input would be...

    We adopted a new rabbit about 3 weeks ago. She is about a year and a half. The 1st week we had her she was a little gem! Sweet and snuggley. The last 2 weeks she is biting the crap out of every living thing in my house! The dogs, the humans, she even tried to get the cat. I also think she is...
