I have 6 does and 2 bucks. They are all NZ Giants. I am looking to sale, breed, and raise them. If anyone is interested in purchasing one contact me. They are 5.00 dollars for live rabbits. And 8.00 dollars for skinned and cleaned rabbits. We have been raising them for 35 years and have much experience.

My bunny (taz) eats everything...what should they not eat...he loves oatmeal but its the oatmeal we eat....is that ok?

  • Charlie Roche - 2011-05-21
    I believe a bunny can eat pretty much anything you eat as long as it is nutricious. A whole lot of sugar or salt isn't good. The rabbit pellets provide a nutricious diet and are geared to do that. If you wish than a few pieces of vegetable (obviously carrot) or maybe a little piece of fruit. These little guys only need 1/4 cup pellets a day but they will eat anything and everything so just don't overdoo it. They do love oats though so that is probably why they love the oatmeal. Just a little - they aren't very big.

    My rabbit has had a nibble of cliff bar(with no chocolate) and a frosted flake! She also likes our baseboards! I hope your rabbit doesn't like baseboards
  • Keymaster1818 - 2015-04-09
    Baby carrots and oats are healthy snacks for them. Many other grains as well however kale seems to give them stomach aches

My little hotot (Pancakes) does not ever want to be held or picked up. Is this normal?

    Generally when a rabbit matures and hormones start kicking in they become stand offish or irritable, maybe even showing aggressive tendancies. One way to help resolve this issue would be to have your rabbit spayed or neutered (it takes alot of research to find a good rabbit vet in most locations that will do a spay/neuter and especially at a reasonable price so check your local shelter or rabbit rescues for recommendations). The other possibility is that your rabbit has issues with the way its being handled or it feels that its personal space (generally being its cage or litter box) is being encroached upon by humans or other animals. Researching rabbit behavior and learning to read your rabbits "body language", modifying your behavior and adjusting things around your home to appease your rabbit will better your relationship. Also, does your rabbit have an ample supply of toys to help de-stress? Rabbits may stress over minor daily activities like humans or animals coming in and out of the home or being noisey and they simply need something to preoccupy their minds with and play is just a great source of relaxation for a rabbit. Make sure your rabbit has plenty of toys and boxes to dig around in that are its personal "things" and not used by other animals (or humans). Good luck!

    No this is not normal it is probably because it wasn't handled from a young age which can result in that. There are other reasons look it up I bet you'll find something!
  • anonamys - 2011-04-10
    I would suggest working with him every day like when you change his food try and let him smell your hand or something just try and let him getr used to you and then try holdiong him
  • Anonymous - 2011-08-24
    my bunny doesn't like to be held much either
  • faith - 2012-12-23
    I just adopted a hotot and I've taked him out of his cage but he just hops back in. Should i be worried? I leave the cage open hoping he would come out. He leans out but doesn't come out
  • Keymaster1818 - 2015-04-09
    Faith these bunnies tend to crave attention. My bunny will at times purposely get me to chase her they enjoy the attention so if u try to get her out she won't come if u ignore her she should come.

Why are they described as small breeds? They are huge compared to Dwarf Hotot, polish and netherland dwarfs, they are small breeds. Mine is huge and keeps growing and growing yet she's not even 4months! Mine will definately be NOT be small...she is the most gentle and docile creature though,love her to bits!!

    These guys have the best personalities and are great pets. They are considered small as usually just 2 1/2 to 4 pounds. Maybe you got a big one. Just love him and enjoy.
  • Liz Guinivan - 2011-06-23
    I agree, I love her to bits! Damn mine is definately huge. I am pretty definate she is purebred but I will have to look up some more rabbit breeds to see if maybe she is crossbred.
  • Deanna Burkart - 2011-07-07
    You could have a Californian instead. They have the same markings but get 8-10lbs.
  • Maddy - 2013-03-18
    I have a himalayan bunny and he is HUGE! He is like a cat. haha They are definitely not a small breed.
  • ana maria valadez - 2015-03-24
    It looks like a California. I am not sure what I had but I loved him. I had a rabbit with similar markings for a year and a half. I cannot tell you what a joy he was to have. He was unlike any other rabbit we had as he was very social. He loved to watch tv with me on the couch and sometimes he would hop into my lap, he would run circles between my legs. He would hum sometimes. My greatest pleasure was watching him run back and forth and the couch. He would binky a lot too, I lost my bunny last year when he died of a heart attack. He had an enlarged heart, I cannot tell you how much I miss him and know I will never find another like him. I spoiled him rotten but I would do it all over again.

Hello, I am looking to purchase a Dwarf Hotot in the Connecticut area (willing to travel to surrounding states, as long as you think the bun won't mind a long trip in the car.) NOT an easter gift for a child, I promise (timing purely coincidental!)

    Ear mite infestation is not serious as long as it is treated right away, otherwise they can cause a bacterial infection that will move into the middle and inner ear resulting in a more serious and possibly even fatal condition.

    Isolate your infected rabbit because ear mites easily spread and will infect other rabbits. Then thoroughly clean and disinfect the habitat and everything in the habitat; sterilizing the enclosure, bedding, food and water bowls, hides, toys, etc.

    Treatment is pretty simple. Ear mites are a parasite known as Psoroptes cuniculi, which is actually a member of the arachnid family. You can use an over-counter remedy such as Rabbit RX or a cat ear mite treatment or you can use oils such as mineral oil, baby oil, or even vegetable oil.

    When using oil, you must treat the bunnies ears for at least 4 weeks because this parasite has a 28 day life cycle. Place 2-3 drops in both ears and massage the base of the ears gently. You can use a cotton ball to to coat the inside of the ear. Do a treatment every other day for the first 10 days, and then again on the 14th, 21st and 28the days.
