Hey! So, I am a rabbit breeder. I breed Netherland Dwarfs currently, I hand tame them and sell them as pets. But I am looking to expand my business by cross breeding. I want to cross my male Netherland Dwarf with a Lion Head female. Would this work? The thing is Lion Heads are bigger than Netherland Dwarfs, so if the female is larger, then more babies could be born. Also, Lion Heads are generally pretty big. So if I breed her with a Netherland Dwarf, then I get the beautiful Lion Head fur in a small bunny. Is any of this possible?
Hello there! So, a breeder friend of mine did this mix, and they turned out adorable! Quite a few of them ended up with manes and smooshy faces, some were a cute combo. The most basic rule is always breed the smaller breed male to a larger female. It’s been a few years, but I don’t remember there being abnormally large litters, just average.
