I have a french lop male bunny he's 3 or 4 months sold and about 10 pounds. He's so cute but he makes me nervous because he flings around when I pat him and I feel like he may bite and have a big bunny big bite. He seems to get very excited or mad when I feed him. Any ideas?

    I just bought one, still wondering how I'm going to house it. They say you can potty train but they leave droppings with every hop LOL so it stays in the garage. We let it outside and it doesn't run away but seems to enjoy herself. I want to convert an old shed into the house with an attached run but no idea how to begin. Certain someone is no help and it was his idea to bring the animal home, suddenly it was my idea and my rabbit. sigh. I'm hoping they do well outside in a warm hut, it gets -40 in the winter. They are super calm and she does enjoy our company, comes when called. Cute. One good thing, I planted a little garden and now have a use for all those bunny berries :D

    Oh, yes idea. They reach sexual maturity as early as 4 months of age and typically start reproducing around 8-9 months of age. With that you might notice behavior changes so it's recommended to spay or neuter your rabbit.

I feel kinda silly about this but I feel the need to share because I am still grieving over our loss of a family member. We just lost our beloved family member, a holland lop rabbit named, LeiLei. We had her for 3 wonderful years. I personally think she is one of the rarest, most beautiful lop bunny anyone could ever ask for. She was mostly brown but had a bit of gray and white fur. She had a white, diamond-shape fur on top of her head; white nose; 3white paws & 1brown, left paw; & the most gorgeous, blue & brown eyes. She was a real chubby one even when we first got her & she was supposedly only a few wks old. I have never seen a bunny so smart. She knew when it was time to feed. She instantly knew what to do with a potty bin though she just came from a show case with bedding all over & no particular toilet bin for her at the store. She was so patient that she knew when it was time to come out of her crib and go to the yard as well as coming back inside the house after an afternoon in the yard. She knew well how to call out to her sister Lionhead bunny, LooLah, and encourage her to go in. She loved to roam around a lot and would always try to push the doors open to any room that she wants to explore. She loved playing with the broom. Everytime I had to sweep the floor she would try to come after the broom and stop it from moving around, oh that was so much! Of course she also knew when to stop. She's also very expressive as she could squeal the loudest whenever LooLah kept bugging her. She wasn't much into kissing like LooLah was but she surely knows how to show us some love whenever she'd let us hold her for awhile like a baby. When she got hurt once she cried with real tears and that nearly broke my heart. How I miss her so much :'( I am in tears as I wrote this & each time I thought of her I feel like bursting into more tears. Losing her is like losing a child, and as a mother I feel like I lost a big part of me when passed away. I will never find one like her & she will always be the only one, true LeiLei in our hearts. Thank you LeiLei for the 3 beautiful yrs you spent with us and for the beautiful children you gave us. We love you so much & we will love and care for your children, LooLah, and her children, too. I wish someday I can see you again. I love you forever & always LeiLei. Rest in peace my darling baby.

Hi. I have had a New Zealand White buck.It was the most wonderful experience! He could allow me to do anything to him, it was like having a dog and a cat at the same time, but even better!
People usually do not know much about rabbits and assume they are pretty stupid. In fact, rabbits, expecially New Zealand bunnies, are full of big surprizes that are yet to be discovered, although we all who have pet bunnies know better than anybody else what a wonderful,loving,funny, and very intelligent a bunny can be as a pet.
If this is your first time, go with a New Zealand baby: besides ruby eyes, thick fur, and adorable ears, you will discover a big bunny to wrap your arms around, and you may find yourself one very special day being trapped by this creature nose to nose with you, breathing peacefully and that is one of the most plesurable experiences you can ever have! In addition, The New Zealand is a greatfull creature and a very generous kisser, which makes him totally irresistable. The only problem with this bun is after he is gone, you can hardly find a replacement for it is impossible to replace a friend, and a friend is a true word for a bunny like that!
Lola.

    Definitely know the feeling, we had a mini rex who was my lil bud. When he passed we got two new Zealand's brother and sister lol, although when we got them they didn't tell us the girl was pregnant now we have four but they're a great breed but the male allows you to pick him up.

Our family inherited an Engilsh Spot rabbit a few months ago. I built a pen for her outside up off the ground about for feet. I built walls on hinges so they can fold down and a solid roof. My question is, should I put in a heat lamp for her because tempature can go down to high 20's to low 30's. Is there anyone out there that can answer my question. I've looked on a lot of websites and no answer yet. Thanks.

    Yes, put a heat lamp in. That is cold. You can place the lamp so it doesn't hit the entire area but one end of it so your bunny can move around to a place where the heat from the lamp is comfortable for them.
  • :) - 2014-03-26
    I would put a heat lamp in, just in case. My rabbit doesn't seem to be affected by the cold and happily runs about in 20-30 degrees celsius. I let my rabbit spend his evenings inside the house where it's warm. He changes completely when he's inside. He changes from the energetic, curious rabbit to the relaxed, sleepy, affectionate rabbit. It's adorable!

    Same here, they're so loving and nice sounding, I want one.

    Well, yes they are. I have a 2 year old English Spot named Violet, and she is adorable. :) She loves to dig a hole right underneath our Butterfly bush in our backyard, and also enjoys snow. Some of them aren't very playful or like to jump. They also LOVE to destroy newspaper and cardboard. It would be best to get your bunny a wicker house, a LOT of chew toys, and put a blanket in it. Also, they are extremely fast runners. She is over-weight though, so if you know what I could do about that, please comment on this. Thanks. :)
  • Becca - 2012-05-09
    Just gradually start feeding less and less pellets, until your bun is kept on a hay based diet. Remember, this must be very gradual. If your bun starts to lose weight, that's great! If you want, you can slowly introduce the pellets again once she's normal weight again, but you can also just keep her on hay. Hope it helped!
  • Becca - 2012-05-09
    Oh I almost forgot, if you get your rabbit back on pellets, make sure you are feeding less than before, because this is probably why your bun became overweight in the first place. Also make sure the pellets you are feeding her are low in carbon (about 5%) and high in fiber (about 15%-20%)
  • :) - 2014-03-26
    Also, it's easier to stop an English Spot from getting overweight than many other breeds of rabbits the same size. English Spots also love jumping around and running. They are slender in body shape and beautiful. Uh oh. I'm sounding like my english teacher. Anyway, English Spots are the best and I have one myself. I don't know what I would do without him.

I got my English Spot rabbit about 4 months ago and I adore him. We found him in a park and he was already litter trained. His markings are absolutely beautiful and I have no doubt he is a show worthy rabbit but I prefer to have him just as a pet. He's sweet, affectionate, adorable, playful, beautiful, cheeky, loyal and a cunning escape artist. English Spot rabbits make great companions and I recommend getting one. They can be a bit feisty for little kids but 9 years and above would be a good age for kids. English Spots need lots of attention and you don't need to bathe them much because they like to clean themselves. English Spots are the best. I'll love you forever Knuffle Bunny. (my mum named my rabbit before I knew we had him)
