    Deworming / Breeding Preparations

    As it moves into the next month, I’ll be starting back up my breeding (late September, Early - Mid October). In plans of doing so, thought it would be good to do a round of dewormer just to be on the safe side, as my buns do make contact with the ground when exercising. I was curious as to what...

    Keeping cool in the Summer?

    Hi all! Summer heat has just kicked in here, and I’ve been searching tirelessly for a lasting way to keep my buns cool in the summer heat. They’re all in 4.5 ft x 2 ft cages, one side of which is the nest box, and the other side, as well as the front is wire, so they get pretty good...

    Outdoor Rabbitry Tips

    Hi all! I was wondering how everyone keeps pests away during the summer months? I recently built my first set of hutches (one wooden unit, three stacked cages, all 4 ft x 2 ft with a built in nest box). Due to the fact that it’s wooden it has been attracting most every creepy crawly in the...

    Genetic / Breeding Program Help

    I've recently been trying to tackle breeding sable points in Mini Rex (being that it's a very uncommon color in my area, yet one of my favorites). The closest I've come to finding one was a Sallander that was listed as a Sable Point (had chinchilla gene in pedigree; no sables at all). Being...

    Mini Rex with no Rex fur?

    Recently bred my Sable Mini Rex doe to a BEW Mini Rex buck. Both of the parents do have rex fur, as well as their parents (BEWs parents were on site, and Sable came with a pedigree). She produced 7 kits (three Sable, four black). I’ll be attaching pictures later once I’m off work, but one kit in...

    New Mother Acting Strange

    My doe, a Mini Rex, recently kindled 7 kits on the 28th. All has been fine, however when I went to check on her and the kits this morning, she was very much so off. She had no interest in her food, hay, and only nibbled a few bites off of a dandelion leaf. So, I checked pulled her out and...

    Pulling Fur Two Weeks into Pregnancy?

    Hi! My doe is 7 months old, a first timer, and my buck is 6 months old (also a first timer). He has been very not “into” breeding (he would only lay next to the does, showed no interest). So, I left my Doe with him for two weeks and pulled her out. She was removed from him last week on...

    Help with Kit Colors

    To any experienced breeders, wanted to get your thoughts on possible colors of these babies? They’re two days old, so fur has started to come in a bit but not a ton. The doe is a tort (ee) that carries blue, and the buck is a Himalayan (dilute recessives unknown, EE or Ee). Did this breeding...

    Signs of a Pregnant Doe

    I have just gotten into breeding rabbits. Was wondering if there are any tell-tell signs of pregnancy, besides palpation? My doe would currently be 29 days pregnant (lifted for my buck several times on July 1st) , however has yet to show any signs. Her stomach can be firm to the touch...
