    DIY Rabbit Cages

    Any suggestions on where to buy cage wire for making or repairing rabbit cages? Local feed store doesn't carry the right size and didn't seem interested in ordering it.

    Aggressive doe?

    My doe had kits on the wire and they did not survive. This has been about three weeks ago. We did not rebreed her yet. However, she never minded being touched and petted but ever since she lost the kits she has been very grouchy. She will let me sort of touch her, but not let me really pet her...

    Advertising to sell rabbits

    Hey all! I’ve been raising rabbits for my fair stock for a few years and this spring I really got into raising for meat. One problem I’m running into is that I’m having trouble advertising and getting people to buy from me. Does anyone have any recommendations? **I have heard that Facebook is...

    Two litters, foster or not?

    Hey all, I had this problem last year (May/June) and I know it was caused by heat but I didn't think it has been hot enough yet to have to worry about heat issues. My doe Paprika had 6 kits yesterday 3/31/20 and I barely peeked at the nest last night, just enough to know she had some wiggly...

    Angora fiber processing question

    Hi all, I'm new to rabbits and fiber. My mom and i enjoy crocheting and so I've started to look into farming fiber. I thought starting small, such as a few angora rabbits, might be a good way to get our feet wet. However, as i did research i realized while the investment in rabbits is far less...

    Overbaked litter and a kit with a deformed ear.

    I have a doe who was due on the 15th, but she didn't have her kits until this morning. She had eight kits - seven average sized kits, and one runt, and they were born with fur! One of the average sized kits has a deformed ear. One ear is small and pointy, and it looks like it won't have an...

    Funny rabbit breeding video

    I video all my breeding to help document and for reference if I forget to write done the buck or date. This video was made a month ago but every time I watch it, I can not help myself. It's so funny. No spoilers but it's worth at least the first 30 sec.

    I am new to breading rabbits (and this forum) and need advice. One of my does (a meat mutt with some giant breed mix) failed to birth a litter after being bred.

    Good morning, This is my first winter with rabbits and I was wondering what everyone uses to water. Now that winter has arrived I'm changing out the plastic water bottles several times a day. In most cases, not much ice in the bottle, but the metal spout freezes up fast. Will using ceramic...
