    I have had rabbits for seven years and own 24 but I never stop learning and getting advice along the way. The longer you have them the more you know.

    What would you prefer better a netherland dwarf or a mini rex ?
  • LUVURBUNS - 2011-07-16
    @Tayler

    A netherland dwarf are cute, lovable little bunnys. But they can be very nasty. And a mini rex, well, they can grow pretty big, so if you have a small house, I would recommend a netherland dwarf.

    I have a mini rex that I believe may be preg. When I was petting her nose, she bit my finger. Then about 1wk. later,I reached in to get a food dish, she bit me and held on. I knocked her off but she got me again. I've only had her about 3wks.

    Will they use a roll around ball. My rabbit is very hyper and I'm trying to figure out a way for her to get some of her energy out.
  • Jeanette - 2011-10-04
    i was wondering if you thought the mini rex is one of the tougher breeds
    to breed? Someone told me it was very hard to get these rabbits to breed. Is that true? thanks Jeanette

    Does the breed of a rabbit effect how much it jumps?
  • Hannah - 2011-10-15
    I just got a mini rex today, and we bought food, and a cage and everything else, but is there anything I shouldn't do? Like, is it safe to give him a bath? (I'd only put water up to his legs) and what is this about lettuce that I hear? Is that bad to give him? Please let me know. Thanks(:
  • Emily Willis - 2011-10-17
    Mini Rexes have somewhere between 2 to four babies on an average all the smaller breed are the same. Californians have somewhere between 6 to 11. so do most breeds that are over 10 pounds.
  • Kelling - 2011-11-16
    Some breeds are more hyper and so might jump more.
    @ Hannah
    Lettuce can be toxic to domestic rabbits and you should not feed them it though you can feed them dark red or dark green leaf lettuce. Mine happen to love Kale (great for vitamin a, though do not give them too much), green leaf, collard greens, romaine, and the house rabbit society has a wonderful guidebook which you should look into because they list all acceptable foods for domestic rabbits. Bathing a rabbit is a no no. They clean themselves and should be groomed by you at least once a week or more depending on the type of coat. Domestic rabbits are not able to control their temperature as well as others and if they become ten to fifteen degrees warmer or cooler than their environment might put them into shock! Also, their fur is hard to dry quickly and if they stay wet for too long, the above would be able to happen and it would be harder to help them. As that is being said, if you ever discipline them with a spray bottle, you have to make sure that they do not become drenched by it. I hope that this helps. Do please make sure to visit the house rabbit society's webpage (you can view the handbook there).
  • Kelling - 2011-11-16
    I must state that generally mini rex rabbits do not need much grooming (this is due to the fact that their primary guard hairs have been bred out, their secondary guard hairs are as short as their undercoat [this is what gives their coat the velvet feel]) while holland lops with agouti coats will need it more frequently. This is due to the differences in their coats. Grooming a rabbit can range from just wetting your hands enough to run it over their hair and collect the excess and using gloves with rubber dots to help in case you would rather not do the first to using the smallest furminator (pink) to really get the loose hair that they cannot get themselves. Also, grooming is possibly needed more among bonded rabbits because they groom themselves and their partner and are at a higher risk of getting GI stasis. So, I hope that this elaboration might help explain more.

    How long do rabbits live for
  • Anonymous - 2011-11-21
    Thank you. That was very helpful. I also have another question, my bunny has had I guess you could say runny poop... Like, he has normal poop too, but he has runny poop too... Is this normal?
  • Anonymous - 2011-12-17
    Diahrea is dangerous for a rabbit and can kill it very quickly if you do not take certain percautions. If you change the brand of food that you give it make sure you gradually change it and it doesnt have more than 16% protein. This can cause digestion problems and can kill it. Also if digestion is a problem put a little handful of oak leaves in with it one or two times a week.

    I have had a jersey wooly for not even a year & I was wondering if there is any way to get his hind legs clean.
  • Julia - 2014-08-23
    A darling little rabbit appeared on our deck 2 wks. ago. He may be a Dutch or maybe a Mini Rex. He's living outside, sleeping under the grill in the corner of the deck. I want to keep him if I don't find his owner. There is a nice unoccupied doghouse that he can use for the winter. I am hand-feeding him kale and parsley and a little cabbage and a little sweet potato peelings (his favorite). I have not feed him pellets yet. Do you have advice for a new rabbit "mother"?

Hi, 13 years ago I was in a pet store buying my Ferret food, when I saw a puppy pile if Chihuahuas for sale. Only one had a furry tail and a fluffy mane around his sweet neck. I asked the sales lady what kind of dog he was and she said"he's a long Haired Chihuahua". I didn't even know they made them!! So I went home, kept thinking of him and a few days later I went and bought him. Chewy is a tan and white Apple Head and rides on my Harley, had traveled across the country twice, is a visitor to nursing homes and never barks or snaps at anyone. He has his own fan club and I'm now a Chihuahua Fan!!! I want a whole Rescue Ranch of them!!!

    Yousaf, strawberry finches are easily available in almost all cities in Pakistan. You need to import them from abroad, its a local bird and they are called surakhs, costing between Rs.500 to 1000 a pair.

We just bought 2 Dutch Blue Lovebirds last Friday, 3/25/11 and overnight one of them died, the shop is giving us another but how am I assured that they will take to each other. These last 2 were cuddling on a perch when we covered them for the night and the remaining bird has been playful and very active since, we are showing him/her lots of attention but are still worried that the new one might not get along with the 1st bird. The shop owner told us he is giving us a bird from the same group, both of our birds were still babies when we got them, thanks Larry and Toni

    There is no guarantee that two love birds will love. However, it would be doubtful that they wouldn't learn to like each other, play together and grow to love each other. My concern here would be why the original love bird died. Could there have been agression? Is it possible that one of the two lovebirds were ill?
  • Wendy - 2014-08-22
    It is never a good idea to cover them. Some birds have night frights, this can cause them to flap around wildly and injure themselves because they cannot see. This is especially dangerous with birds new to their environment.

When my kittens were found everyone assumed they were brother and sister. My Mercy was a Tortoise Shell. The other cat I believe was a Calico. They mated and had a litter. I believe I am a victim of a prank. When my former so called friends and certain relative that married into a family that married relatives. They were trying to make me eat my words. I gave the whole family away. These evil people were looking for any negative thing on me. They believe I favord my tabby mostly white. I knew my Mercy was a beautiful cat that acted lady like. Her manners were beautiful. She got the boot because we all assume she mated with her brother. PLEASE tell me Tortoise SHell cats are a different breed. How do I get my baby back.

    The likely hood of your baby mating with the brother from another litter is very possible, but unlike humans, a cat's first imbred litter will have no ill effects. Torties are made by mating a black (variation of markings) cat and an orange(variation of markings) cat together. They are in no sort a different breed from a calico, the pattern in which the fur lays is the only difference.
