    i have just been given 5 rabbits and there are 1 full breed lionhead and 2 rabbits which i believe have got a quarter lionhead in them the 1 is a broken magpie in colour and the other is a broken blue . thats just the bucks lol
    .
    there are then 2 does who 1 of which is a smoothed skinned black and white colour and the other is another lionhead in a sandy brown and whit i will post pictures when i have sorted out the garden and i will hopefully be getting a wire meshed shed to put the hutches in as we have fox problems around my area we have a dog but he wouldnt hurt a fly do u have any advice?

    ps i am intrested in starting to breed them as i have the time and effort to look after them what should i do?:confused:

    This is an old thread from lest year, the guy that started it was a nasty piece of work, i rescued and rehomed 5 badly treated buns from him one of which died :( you'll see the stickie at the top of the rabbit forum. He is now banned.

    Id ask you to seriously ask yourself why you want to breed, there are loads of buns sat in rescues, if you want to research their bloodlines and want to improve the breed then fair enough but you have to find the right homes for them too. I have nothing against responsible breeders but i dont like breeding for the sake of and i would never do it just because i'd feel too guilty knowing how many are sat in rescues already desperate for homes. How big is the shed if you are housing all those buns in hutches in it? How big are the hutches they are in?

    wow sounds like you'll have some real beauties, I'd love to help with these fantastic buns but I haven't got my own house to keep them. good luck finding your imports and I hope they have a safe journey. Keep us updated

    You don't WANT to know them!!

    Horrible nasty man he was.

    I was partially involved in helping the buns get away from him.

    Ive told you this is an old thread and that we rescued some buns off him, he should not be allowed to keep ANY animal. The welfare of animals should come first before anything else, thats what makes a good breeder.
