    Bucks not willing to breed?

    This past weekend, I tried breeding two of my does with two different bucks. As they are all rare and beautiful colors, I was really excited for these pairings! However, the bucks we're not willing to breed which is something I've never seen before from studs! They weren't even willing to hump...

    Color Question

    One of my current bunnies came to me as a VM blue / cream harlequin. Now I am doubting her coloring, as she appears to be torted. Below are pictures, I guess I'm just looking for a second opinion. The insides of her ears and the majority of her stomach are the same color as her back.

    Preventing Heat Stroke

    It's scorching here in Washington state, reaching temperatures of 110+ degrees Fahrenheit today. This is unheard of! Keeping the bunnies from overheating is obviously my biggest concern right now. I'd like to share some tips to prevent this: • Dip the ends of their ears into cold water. This...

    Ticking on a Broken Patterned Rabbit?

    I'm fairly new to breeding broken patterns in Holland Lops. I thought this baby was a broken black from birth, but as he gets older (currently 10 weeks old), more and more white hairs are showing across his body - not just where the colors meet! My question is, is this normal with broken...

    Fur Mites: Best Treatment

    It appears as though one of my adult bunnies has fur mites... I know this is easily treatable, and I have dealt with it before so know what to look for. However, it seems very very mild as there are no bald patches and just some dandruff-like flakes around the tail. I'm going to thoroughly clean...

    Coat Coloring Question

    Black or Blue Tri-Color? At first I assumed it was black/cream pattern, but it looks different than typical tri's.

    Bunny vs. Rabbit

    Recently somebody corrected me, stating that the size of the pet determines if it is a bunny or a rabbit. Is this true?? I've always used these terms interchangeably. Sorry if it seems like a really dumb question, I am just curious!

    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...
