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 try and breed our baby boy, but I have so many concerns. If anyone could answer a few of my questions, that'd be so helpful. 1. All we know about his genetic history is that he is a mini Rex that was born on Feb. 9th. I tried to get in contact with the lady I got him from, but the number told me I had the wrong person. I have not seen either of his parents or any siblings, just him. Our vet told us he might have English Spot in him as well, but we can't be sure. My question is: as long as she's around the same size as him, does it matter what breed of doe I get for him? 2. I really wanted to get a bonded pair of rabbits when I was first looking to own one as a pet. I finally moved out of college dorms and into a house that has so much space for a rabbit or two. When I picked up my Appa, I immediately started looking for does for sale in my area to try and bond with him once he got neutered. Now that we are trying to breed him, my question is: is it still possible for him to become a bonded pair with the doe he has bred with if we get them both fixed? 3. Our boy gets a lot of run time in a couple of the big rooms in our house as well as in our bedroom once we've picked up the floor a bit. He has a pretty big hutch that he is locked in at night or when we aren't home, complete with a hideout, litter box, food dishes, blankets, toys, etc. Our hutch can be separated into two smaller cages, and my question is: once the doe has her litter, would it be safe to keep them in the same hutch, just separated from each other? 4. I know introducing rabbits can be difficult as all hell, but we are determined to make this work. Once I have my female, I know I should get a second cage to keep her in until they have gotten used to each other, but my question is: would it be safe to introduce them in a room that our buck has already pretty much claimed as his own? It's the biggest, most open room in our house where we'd be able to watch them the best. Thank you so much for your help!!!!
