    Working on a rabbit skin blanket for our daughter, so I'm thinking about crossing some color in, just to break up the white.

    Any suggestions?

    Flemish giants have a lovely brownish fur. My buck is grey and my doe is ginger and from them I'm getting black, brown and a striped orange/grey! They are giant mixed breed (flemish, checker and something else). I'd love to get white.

    Try breeding one doe to a checker for a neat "spotted" pattern, or to a flemish for the creamy browns.

He has befriended my kitten. I had him free roaming my room 24/7 but... it got out of hand. He was chewing EVERYTHING, and I never could poo train him, so now when Im not in my room he stays in a area 1/3 of my room in a x-pen. They are such personable animals, I love him to the moon and back. I guess you would never think such little guys could have so much life in them, so much personality.







    Omfg you never told me she was a he :o

    What cute bun-buns!
    I have a 10 year old dwarf named Pippin. I'll have to see if I can find some photos of him. :)

    How does that affect the meat?

    Bahahahaha I find it hilarious that we're all talking about our cute bun buns and you guys are discussing meat! Not to worry my dad worked for the pest board in NZ most his life, he hunted rabbits for a living as they were/are a pest in NZ I've seen more dead rabbits than I've seen live ones!

    I'm sorry if that's not appropriate here, we could start another thread for meat/fur rabbits if that's more appropriate.

    Being a mix? Not at all. Our first litter turned out at 7lbs live weight/3lbs dressed per rabbit and the meat was firm and juicy. That's pretty good for just under 3 month old rabbits.

    I've only had mine to eat, so I don't know how it would compare with a purbred californian or new zealand rabbit. Do you find their meat firm, mushy, stringy, sweet?

    My next litter is from the same doe/buck but the litter after that is from the buck and a purebred satin. Nice coats! I'm interested to see if this meat is different than the other crosses.
