My Holland Lop bunny Chip is the cutest bunny in the world. He is as bad as he is cute. He is sweet and gentle but also a biter. But he is still a good bunny. We love him sooooooo much. My bun bun is black and white and furry and soooooo adorable.

my two little mice have become addicted to sweetmeats (originally offered once a day) and begs and screams all the time for more.they have become aggressive and even bit me and my mom. to sooth them we have given them lots of sweets and now they have become very fat and bulky.they do not exercise in their wheel, all they do is sleep and sleep. so when we decided not to give them sweets anymore, they have become increasingly violent and are screaming and biting at everyone who puts hand in their cage. how can i improve the situation?

    If you slowly let off of the sweets that should make them less aggressive and while your doing that mix less and less sweets with good nutritional food! I hope this was helpful! :)

    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.

    why should you not feed your bunny lettuce?

    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.

    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, I had a black and white dutch and he was the most friendly rabbit that I have ever met. He was very social and loved people and our dog very much. If you ever want a pet rabbit, definitely choose a dutch rabbit, a male if you can. They are much more friendly than the females. Mine lived to be 10 years old. They make fantastic pets!!

    Well if u do, guinea pigs are suppose to b kept in pairs or more. They're very social animals and become depressed easily from loneliness. But if u r home and spend a majority of ur time with it I'd recommend a friend. Employees in pets stores may say its ok to keep one but most don't really know what they're talking about. And b sure to give them plenty of space. Food and hay and vedgitbles daily. . And guinea pigs can't store vitamin c so give them orange slices often and u can even buy drops to put in their water. And don't forget lots of love.
  • Emily - 2014-08-18
    The problem is not that cavies cannot store vitamin c, the problem is they can not produce it. If you feed them oranges, they can get sweet tooth preventing them from eating normal pellets feed them green bell peppers cut out the seeds

    Polish cost around $25 normally and they are pretty easy going. Not bitey but like to taste your fingers when little. Not biting just more like a pup licks you.

    I have 2 polish and I bought them for $30

Hi -

I've had the pleasure of sharing my home with bunnies for the past 20 years and currently have four, one of which is a beautiful light gray, spunky Holland Lop named Samson. Not one bunny has ever once had a hairball (and they certainly shed quite a bit) and they are happy and healthy. The best advice I can offer is to feed these darling creatures an abundance of hay as long as it's Timothy as it's low in protein (Oxbow is the best company out there to order hay from...it's incredibly high quality and smells unbelievably fresh...once you've tried it it's hard to go back to the usual store bought brands). The rabbits appreciate it tremendously and it is now considered very good practice by many rabbit savvy vets and rescuers to give rabbits unlimited hay daily, again as long as it's Timothy. Supplementing alfalfa or other hays in every now and then is fine but Alfalfa is too high in protein. Also check out rabbitcare.org.

Olive (sorry but this is very detailed and long) - 2014-08-03
Hi i recently adopted a Britannia Petite Rabbit named Olive (hence my name) When i first got her home, I gave her time to get used to the surroundings of her cage which is big enough for her to jump around 4 1/2 times the length of herself (as she is just a baby) I then put a litter box in her cage a left her for the remainder of the day and night obviously with food and water. The next day I opened the cage door and made it her decision as to when she wanted to come out. I then proceeded to look in her litter box and noticed she had used it, I thought this was weird because she was just a baby and had never been litter box trained before but i saw she hadn't gone anywhere else in her cage. She was born litter box trained! When she finally came out of her cage I lay on my floor with my laptop, in my bunny proofed room, and let her explore me and the room. She sniffed my and each day we did this for a couple hours, we started with baby steps. Then i started getting her used to my hands, I tried to fed her carrots from my hand but she wouldn't take it yet,I started with a long carrot and made it shorter an shorter till she was eating right off my palm. Now she was associating my hands with treats. Anyways after a couple weeks of this she is now completely comfortable around me and follows me everywhere I go, she is completely litter trained and loves to lick:) I try to pick her up a little as possible but when I do she has no problem with it. If you want to tame and bond with your Britannia Petite rabbit this is the way to do it! I can honestly say she is the perfect bunny, even if she needs hours of floor time every day! Sorry this was so long and detailed but thanks for reading!!
