    First Time Breeder Looking For Tips!

    Hi everyone! I'm new to RabbitsOnline and to breeding as well. I've been around rabbits all my life, and I currently have a 14 week old mini Rex buck. Our vet has told us he is perfect for breeding when he's a little older, but I've never bred rabbits before. My boyfriend is super excited to...

    How did you start breeding rabbits?

    I'm honestly just curious on how some of you went about setting up a breeding practice, either for a hobby or income or other. I'd love to start my own some day, of course when I have the space, money, and time to do so. How did some of you start? What's your story? Any legal routes you had to...

    Buck stops mounting halfway through breeding.

    So I’m trying to breed my two holland lops and it started well but my buck stops mounting the doe when he has already started going. I’ve checked both of my rabbits ahead of time and they are both in fine health, also the doe’s vulva is dark pink so she should be at the right time to breed...

    Does anyone know any good books for Lionhead breeders?

    There was a really good book I heard of a while ago that helped explain the genetics of Lionhead rabbits and how to breed them successfully, but I forgot it’s name. I believe it was by the ARBA, but I’m not sure. It was supposedly really informative for beginners. Does this sound familiar to...

    Our first kindling

    In November I posted about my Holland Lop Reva, who was having difficult labor and finally gave birth to one kit, DOA. Later I posted when we rebred and our nest box dilemma. Well we finally have our kits - two little Hollands. Here they are, a few minutes old. I was not expecting them until...

    Nest box timing?

    I know they say to put the nest box into the cage a day or two before due date. My daughter is eager to do it soon, although we are only halfway through. Are there reasons other than cleanliness to wait? Will she be less likely to recognize it as a place to build nest if it goes in sooner? Last...

    Mom and son

    I know that it's ok to breed mother to son. My question is; if they are never separated, will she go into heat? I'm guessing yes, but there are no signs yet. There is a gap between their sides of the cage where he jumps through. He is approximately 5 months old and they still curl up together at...

    Bunny Built a Nest Outside of Nesting Box

    Hello! About a month ago I was given a bunny from someone looking to re home her. A few days ago she started to pull her fur and after some research we figured she was pregnant. Last night I quickly drove to my local pet shot and the owner graciously gave me one of his nesting boxes. I placed it...

    Rabbit labor and birth concerns.

    I have a lovely Holland Lop doe (profile picture) who is about 16 months old, and a buck who is about 6 months. He was selected specifically for her, as his best traits are her lower ones and vice versa. Both are from great show lines and pedigreed. We first let them have " play dates"October...

    Smaller buck with larger doe?

    What coloring is my buck? And what should I breed him with?

    This is Mr. Hyde. I’m looking for a doe and am going to be breeding him soon, and I’m curious what color he is called and what colors he would go best with. I’ve done a bit of research and from what I’ve researched I believe he’s called a Chinchilla, but I don’t know for sure. I know some color...

    Questions for Breeding Rabbits

    My buck and doe have just bonded (at least I'm pretty sure they have) and I wanted to know if my buck would breed with another doe even if he is bonded to the doe I have now. (I had no intention of bonding them, I just wanted to let them play together since they're still not adults. I didn't...
