I am looking to buy a baby Rex-- not mini but a standard, regular sized Rex. I live in San Rafael, California, which is near San Francisco. Can anyone help me out?

I have two female mini rex about 6 months old. I'm concerned because one of them has a roll around her lower neck, I felt it and it feels soft no knots or anything just very concerned. Thank you, Mary

    It's perfectly normal does get them it's called a dewlap
  • Flower - 2016-01-12
    It is a dewlap; if you plan to show your rabbits, depending on breed standards, a dewlap may cause disqualification... I do not know if Britiannas are supposed to have dewlaps or not.

My family raises rabbits. We have 20 rabbits, 3 of which are expecting. My sister is into breeding Holland Lops and I LOVE the mini rex. As of right now i only have one, a black otter sr. buck, but am looking for a companion for him. i had a chocolate jr. doe but she passed unexpectedly. I absolutely love the feeling of their coat and the size of them. I also have a blue eyed white Netherland Dwarf. We raise Holland Lops and Havana's. We are also starting to get into the Himalayan. As you can see we are very into our rabbits. Our website is will be updated with in the next week.

    Green foods are important, and the rule-of-thumb is to feed one packed cup of greens for each 2 pounds of weight per day, and more is fine. There's more info about their diet under the feeding section on our Pet Rabbit Care page, which describes green in more detail and has a list of suggested green foods as well. Enjoy!

    I have had rabbits for seven years and own 24 but I never stop learning and getting advice along the way. The longer you have them the more you know.

    What would you prefer better a netherland dwarf or a mini rex ?
  • LUVURBUNS - 2011-07-16

    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).

    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.

    How long do rabbits live for
  • Anonymous - 2011-11-21
    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"?
