I have a pregnant French Angora who is due on the 30th. She is my first. I had a friend, who doesn't own angoras, recommend shaving her to keep things clean. I've seen people who leave them be, and others who shave. I was hoping to get some opinions/experiences on this as I'd rather save her the stress of this if it isn't necessary.

hope your doe had a successful litter. only seeing this now but we do not shave ours, we groom them out right before breeding and then let them use their fur in the nest box.

Welcome :frow glad you joined us and would love to see some pictures of your angora rabbits!
