I would’ve been furious at both of those situactions! But you know me, I wouldn’t have the guts to say a thing...ugh! Working on my backbone!! She came tonight to pick up the other bunny that she brought back, but was fine...but I was getting rabbits delivered...so, luckily, I didn’t have to go through the whole thing again...ugh. They are going to buy a meat rabbit from my friend...easier breed.Sorry about the Bunny. Stop selling them at 8 weeks and keep them till 10 weeks. Here Pet stores only sell 12 week old bunnies. Bunnies have very sensitive stomachs to feed changes and being taken away from the only place they know causes stress on any animals. Possibly the Bunny had underlying health issues and wasn't even the owners fault? You can't get to upset when selling animals because that's the business you chose. Of course we all want fantastic homes for our baby animals but once they leave it's not our responsibility anymore. If they knowingly neglected the Bunny I don't think they would have brought her back.
My last litter of puppies I was dooped by a puppy seller. Meaning they bought my tiniest puppy and resold her at a higher price. I definitely worry about my puppies and what ever else I sell as babies. The Mare I sold with the agreement of promise of first refusal and they sold her at auction before asking me if I wanted her back. Selling animals can be a wonderful thing, it also can be disappointing.
YES, @chickens really , I do agree that I think I’m gonna sell them older...not only for the health, but also so I can see how they grow....with these breeds, you have to see how they grow into their ears, etc, to really know who to keep...I have friends that don’t sell until 12 weeks. But, I get sooo bullied by customers....I’m a whimp!
