    Bald Spot??

    One of my bunnies has developed some sort of bald spot / hair thinning on her back. Thankfully, it does not appear to be infected, and after thoroughly examining it it is not red and there is no bump, rash, etc. It is not sensitive. Am I being an overly paranoid bun mom? Or what could this be...

    What are pedigrees needed for (besides breeding)?

    Recently I've had quite a few people interested in buying baby bunnies from me and requesting a pedigree. They claim it is not for breeding - The common excuse is that it is for "interest" or 4-H / show. Keep in mind that my rabbits are Vienna marked and many are Harlequin variations...

    Rabbit Licks: Salt or Affection??

    This seems to be a debatable question... Do rabbits "groom" humans as a loving thing, or possibly because they have a salt deficiency in their diet?

    How to examine a rabbits' mouth?

    I like to thoroughly examine my baby bunnies before sending them to their new homes to make sure they are healthy. One thing that I have never been able to do is check inside rabbits' mouths (meaning further back, where the molars are). Is there any way to do this without the help of a vet? Any...

    Anesthesia Question...

    One of my lactating does may need to get an operation done in the near future that requires anesthesia. Does this in any way put her babies at risk, considering she is nursing them and anesthesia will be in her body? If everything goes as planned, she will only be at the vet for half of a day...

    Newborn Bunny Coat Color?

    What color is this baby bunny? It appears to be a chestnut with harlequin markings on the belly. Is there a such thing as a harlequinized chestnut, or what could it be? I have never seen anything like this! Background Info: - Mom is a BEW (presumably harlequin) and Dad is a Orange / Black...

    No Appetite for Pellets While Pregnant?

    One of my pregnant bunnies has not been finishing her pellets this week. She's most definitely interested in eating all of her veggies and hay, though. I'm thinking maybe she's feeling full from being pregnant, as she seems perfectly fine otherwise. Still destructive as ever lol. For reference...

    Help! Alternative Flooring Options??

    One of my bunnies has completely destroyed and ripped up her vinyl flooring! Her cage is resting above two other cages, so kind of like a second story. It is an odd rectangle shape, which makes it very difficult to find a good flooring solution! It is 20 ft² and homemade. The majority of my...

    Gas: Causes & Treatment

    Two of my bunnies have recently been having gas issues, and I have been syringe feeding baby gas drops every now and then to help. This came about suddenly a few days ago, with no change of diet!

    How to distinguish the difference between broken colorings

    I'm looking into purchasing a cream Holland Lop, however, she is a broken pattern with no color on her belly making it hard to distinguish shading and thus determining color.

    Deaf Bunnies??

    I have heard that all blue-eyed white rabbits are deaf. Is this statement true or false? I do not believe this is the case, as I have tried it out with my blue-eyed whites and both of them responded to me clapping / making a loud noise even when they could not see my movement. Maybe they just...

    Welcome to the Rabbitry!

    I am elated to announce our newest addition to our rabbitry... a beautiful lilac otter Holland Lop named Willow! She is proven and pedigreed, so I am hopeful she will improve our herd.

    The Reality of Being a Breeder
