    Chinchilla and Squirrel

    Does anyone have any pictures of a squirrel-colored rabbit? I'd REALLY like to see one that's a rex or mini rex, but since they're not an accepted variety, I don't imagine there are too many out there. It would especially awesome if it's of one that's squirrel next to on that's chinchilla...

    Wideband Castor

    Here's a picture of a wideband castor kit (ww). These are pretty common from castor/red crosses (in this case the castor was a REW). This little guy has the blue-grey undercolor throughout, and you can see the grey around his hips (not solid like a tort would be). There is a little bit of...

    Show in La Grande, OR (Saturday)

    Just thought I'd hop on here and let those of you in the area about the show in La Grande, OR. I just got an email from the show secretary, and I hope some of you will consider helping fill the slots: The following are classes close to receiving a leg. ANYONE may enter these classes by...

    Hind Leg Use

    Eek! Glad I'm home today instead of at work! Usually my rabbits fare fine as long as I provide them ice bottles to lie against, but today it's well over a hundred, and all of them are complaining about it even with their bottles. I got a fan set up blowing through the walkway, and a mister...

    Club Membership Benefits

    I'm just curious if anyone has any advice about memberships beyond just the basic ARBA membership. When I raised Flemish, I had a membership with the NFFGRB, and the monthly(?) newsletter/booklet was kind of nice, with its breed-specific information, but that was really the only benefit I saw...

    ARBA site

    Okay, so I design websites for a living, and as such, I'm a little kooky when it comes to websites updating. Still, I had to share with everyone (in case you hadn't noticed) that the ARBA site has updated...and it's a vast improvement over their old site. ~runs off to hop around the links on...

    Showing in an older class

    Just out of curiosity, if a rabbit happens to be over their junior or intermediate weight, will the rabbit get disqualified or moved to the older class? In our local fair they usually ignore the weights and just judge agemates, but it's way off par from ARBA rules in other areas, too. I...

    Californian Weight Limits

    Does anyone have their SOP handy? I just weighed my 4-1/2 month old junior buck today, and the scale said he's 7 lbs 14 oz! I just wanted to make sure I don't need to redo his entry as an intermediate because of weight. Our fair is next week. On another exciting note, I weighed my two 7 week...

    Composting Manure

    Hey all, Anyone have any good suggestions for composting rabbit manure. I've always just scattered the contents of the trays over the top of the garden soil, and later was dumping them in a compost bin with grass clippings, but they never really seemed to break down (especially not while...

    Busy Day at Hill Rise!

    Today was a very busy day for me with the bunnies. Chela, my oldest New Zealand doe finally had her babies this morning (she'd been nesting like crazy since day 27, and today was day 32). There are now 6 little pink babies in the nest! Yea! Also, we left early this morning to get some Rex...

    Fecal Repellent

    Our dogs REALLY like to eat our rabbit's droppings. I cured them of eating the rabbits' food, but they're not getting the idea with the stools. Does anyone know if there's a bunny-safe product like Deter that will stop the dogs from eating the poop? If you don't know, deter makes a dog's...

    Moving Website

    Hi guys, I've had a website for my rabbitry for a while now, but due to issues with my original host, I'm moving it to a new host. It's been a couple days since I changed the nameservers (sorry I'm getting so technical...). Anyway, it's only supposed to take about 48 hours to change, but...

    Callused Hocks still showable?

    I have a very promising looking young rex buck who's unfortunately developed calluses on his hocks (not sore hocks, just calluses, and yes, he does have a rather large resting board). I just want to see what you guys think about his ability to still show. I've never seen calluses completely...

    Tattoo

    So, according to the ARBA, the tattoo must be legible...does that mean it HAS to have visible ink in it? One of the rabbits I bought a couple weeks ago has apparently managed to clean all the ink out of her tattoo (must have been tattooed the morning I got her, since it WAS visible when I...

    Salutations

    Hello! I'm Cat. I stumbled across this forum, and figured I'd hop on, hand out some advice as I can, and get some when I need it, as well. I started raising rabbits back in 1999 as a 4-H project (although, my best friend's family ran a commercial rabbitry since the early 90s, so even then I...

    Fly Control

    I have 13 breeding rabbits (plus some babies), and was wondering if anyone has any good recommendations for fly control. I've raised rabbits for over a decade, but until recently, I had the space to not worry too much about the flies. Now I have a smaller yard and closer neighbors, and I'd like...

    Californian of a Different Color

    Hi, I'm puzzling over what color a pair of "Californians" I recently bought are. They fit conformationally, so I'm sure they are most likely mostly Californian, but their points aren't quite the right color. Both have very obvious ticking in their ear markings, although the doe is still very...
