    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...

    Help! Can I breed an orange holland lop to a broken black tort holland lop?

    I’m wondering if I can breed an orange Holland lop with a broken black tort holland lop. The orange is the buck and he carries dilute and chocolate. Both of his parents were orange/chocolate harlequins. I haven’t gotten the doe’s pedigree yet. If I did breed these two what might I get? Thanks!

    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...
