    Keeping intact males together

    I’m planning to start breeding rabbits and I’m worried about keeping the males alone. I’ve never had problems keeping intact does together and I’ve seen how well they do together and how much they benefit from socializing and I don’t want to deprive my bucks of that. Could I keep two intact...

    New bunny owner, question on breeding

    I just picked up a few buns the other day and had a question. These I told are Netherland Dwarf Rabbits so I am wondering what color type would you call these? Also, in the future if we were to breed them, would these be good choices? Thanks!

    One stillborn and one live tiny lionhead baby

    I tried breeding my lionheads at all at once. The first doe had two stillborns and 1 peanut. I unsuccessfully tried doing feedings with his first time mom and hand feeding. He lasted longer than expected, but lost the battle. The does milk dried up completely and he didn't seem to absorb any...
