    New Bunny Owners

    Hi all. We are buying two bonded Holland Lop sisters and I plan on building an outdoor hutch. It will stay under our sun porch, an open area about 5 ft high with good air flow, and hopefully something we can carry into the garage during extreme temperatures. We're keeping the bunnies outside...

    Rabbit Syphilis!?

    Hi, I'm Anna, and I've shown rabbits in 4H for 8 years now, but I've got a problem. Recently I decided to add a new breed of rabbit to my barn, Dwarf Hotots, and so far they've been nothing but trouble. My first dwarf hotot I bred to a doe someone else owned, and she had 3 babies. I took a doe...

    Safe Spot on Flea Treatment?

    I found out the hard way that the flea treatment I was using for my dogs wasn't working... :mad: I switched their spot on treatment and now they're all clear, but my poor little indoor bunny must've picked them up while the dogs still had them. What spot on treatment can I use for him? He's a...

    BEW Breeding

    My long term goal is to have a BEW project, so I'm trying to learn all I can now. I know that shaded/chocolate/lilac should never be breeded into a BEW line. But what if let's say, a black bunny with chocolate somewhere in it's history gets breeded in? Does that also cause the ruby cast or have...

    False pregnancy advice needed !

    My beautiful baby Bella is now fully matured and she’s had her first (what I think is) false-pregnancy. Was cleaning out the hutch today and noticed a huge wad of her fur in the corner of the ‘hidden room’ in the hutch. It’s the darkest area in the hutch and is sheltered from light and very...

    4 week old baby attacked by my other rabbit :(

    I brought home the most gorgeous 4-week old baby girl today. She was named Lola but after today's incident, I decided she needed more luck and named her Clover (after the four-leafed clover). She has one blue eye and one brown eye and is the smallest little thing :') Obviously, I was...

    I just rescued 2 Holland Lop rabbits from someone who did NOT take care of them well. They lived in a crate that has probably never been cleaned. Boy is neutered. Girl has cataracts I think. I’ve been putting some eye wash in her eyes, and his too because they’re a bit gross. He has a scab in...
