I can answer questions about breeding and showing rabbits. I have been breeding Black Rex rabbits for the past 10 years and have won numerous prizes for showing them. Ive also done a fair amount of judging.

The photo is of my daughter with her Best of Breed winner at our State Fair. Your questions are being answered by an adult! LOL I can help with questions on breeding and showing rabbits. I DO NOT condone breeding for the sake of breeding. We only breed for specific shows and to improve the breed. I am not a vet, but may be able to help a new person who is getting started and needs some advice. I will refer you to a vet for anything I am not sure of. We raise and show Mini-lop Rabbits. We have raised Grand Champion Rabbits, and we have dealt with problems arising from breeding and having rabbits in general. Whether you want to show, or just have a rabbit as a pet, make sure you have the time to spend with them, the money needed to care for them, and adequate housing for them.

. . << NOTICE>>> DO NOT ASK ME QUESTIONS ABOUT RABBITS THAT ARE KEPT TOGETHER ...RABBITS ARE NOT HERD ANIMALS AND NEED TO LIVE SEPERATED THIS IS FOR THIER OWN HEALTH. DO NOT KEEP TWO RABBITS TOGETHER THEY WILL BREED AND YOU WILL HAVE BABIES IT IS THIER NATURE. RABBITS DO NOT NEED TO STAY TOGETHER TO BE FRIENDS OR HAVE COMPANY! THEY WILL BREED.... PLEASE DO NOT HOUSE TWO OR MORE RABBITS IN THE SAME CAGE. IT IS NOT GOOD FOR THE RABBITS THEY WILL FIGHT SOONER OR LATER. Rabbit Breed Identification, Breeding, color genetics, Breeds I know about: Polish, Champagne de`Argent, californians,holland lops,Checkered Giants, Dutch,english spots, line breeding, I also have plans for building rabbit hutches and Rabbit Barns. THESE are topics I can help out with. I DO NOT deal with Angora rabbits and rex, valloschamps@aol.com

I can answer questions around the welfare of pet rabbits, basic health queries including gut stasis, diet worries, bonding questions and the proper welfare standards around housing rabbits (i.e. no wire floors, no small cages and they should be kept in properly bonded de-sexed pairs in very large enclosures). I cannot answer showing questions nor complex breeding issues as I do not agree with either, seeing the other end of the story in the world of rabbit rescue.

I am not an expert on wild rabbits, only domesticated rabbits. I can answer questions regarding habitats, behavior, diet, health, pairing/bonding - pretty much anything having to do with owning a rabbit.

***ATTENTION -- I DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT WILD RABBITS AND I CAN NOT HELP YOU WITH WILD RABBIT QUESTIONS*** Please do not ask me questions about your pet rabbits if you have no intention of taking them to a vet. I DO NOT CONDONE THE BREEDING OF RABBITS THAT ARE NOT PUREBRED AND PEDIGREED. ACCIDENTLY LITTERS OR RABBITS INTENDED FOR MEAT ARE ACCEPTABLE. *** I WILL NOT ANSWER QUESTIONS RELATED TO BACKYARD BREEDING. IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT BEING A RESPONSIBLE BREEDER I WILL HELP YOU. PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME ABOUT BREEDING RABBITS TO SELL TO PET STORES, TO USE AS PETS ETC. *** *** DO NOT HOUSE UNALTERED MALE AND FEMALE RABBITS TOGETHER, EVER! THIS IS WHERE BABIES COME FROM*** I WILL NO LONGER GIVE ADVICE TO PEOPLE WHO ARE CARELESS AND THINK THAT IT IS OK TO PUT 2 RABBITS TOGETHER WITHOUT KNOWING THEIR SEX*** Rabbits are not toys. They are living creatures. I believe that people are responsible for their animals. If you can't afford a vet, in my opinion, you can't afford a rabbit. I can answer questions on genetics, rabbit behavior, breeding, and health of all rabbits including meat breeds. I am a .....
