Bun buns!

Figured we could talk about rabbits here if you wanted . So what breeds do you have?

I would like to breed Rex rabbits

Wow you have quite a bunch ya got there ^^ I'd love to see pictures! Do you keep them inside, outside or both? I'd love to get them barn like rabbit hutches or something similar that they could eat the grass or play in it even when they weren't let out to play yet

I keep them inside now, but I hope to get a prefab building in the near future to expand. I only have pics of Shiro and Taji right now, I know I'm bad, but its been a really rough couple of years, I could really kick myself for not getting pics of Twinkie and minxsie as babies, they were so tiny, not even the size of my hand. I'll try to get more pics soon.

Awe they are so cute! I know how it is though. Like when Gracie was sick I should have documented with more pictures but I didnt. Im going to post more of a reply (regaurding Hector back in the rainbow bridge thread to keep this more on topic ok )

Though If i was breeding rabbits I'd definately need pictures to post on a website or something lol

Wow I think 10 is a pretty good age for rabbits I know it's not for parrots, but for rabbits I think the average is 8 yrs maybe?

So they're still babies, so cute at that age. I was looking up Hotot's and I'm so in love, adorable.

Omg the cuteness!!! Tiz overwhelming!!!!!! -passes out- lol jk. Very cute though ^^

Also I'm so sorry animallover, sometimes things happen and there's nothing you can do, I lost my litter of 4 wild cotton tail kits years ago. Their mother was killed by a mower but I couldn't keep them alive more then a week.. But I think it's cuz my parents made them stay and sleep outside and I think they got cold..

They stay real small (the Hotot's) just like the ND's. And I wanted small bunnies. Both are very sweet girls and we sure love them.

Shannon, your welcome. I'm giving him the the sanctuary. I just get so mad at him that I want to knock him off his pedestal, and knowing me I just might try. :O(

Awww, I'm jealous of your guys! I REALLY want a Lionhead but won't be able to get one for a while.
My family (well, my brother) when I was in Elementary school had a black rabbit but my dad got rid of it when my brother stopped paying attention to it (since it was technically my brothers...). I was so sad. His name was Pikachu. He was a super aggressive rabbit to the point that you had to wear a sweater with long sleeves to hold him. He would even growl at you! I now realize that if we had gotten him neutured he probably would have calmed down a ton! (It wasn't for lack of attention, I held him all the time and he was allowed to roam the house at will)

He was so cute even though he was an angry little guy, lol.
It was hilarious because we had our old (now passed) cat at the time and he was afraid of the rabbit. :P The cat would go up to sniff the rabbit when the rabbit was roaming the house and the rabbit would growl at the cat and the cat would run away, hahahaha.
