Rabbit raisers are a very
good bunch, most of the time. We've heard of
no problems with any rabbitries we've listed, but just the same, we ask that
the buyer beware.
We have not visited the rabbitries
listed. Do your research, keep your eyes open, and get yourself healthy
Ask if the breeder has had problems with buck teeth.
Look in the rabbit's mouth - the top rabbit teeth
should overlap the bottom teeth.
Ask if any genetic problems lurk in the herd. Buying
meat rabbits? Ask about yellow fat. Certain breeds and lines within breeds
have have their own various genetic problems - ask.
Listen inside the rabbitry - If you hear *any* sneezing or see
*any* white snot, you may wish to leave without rabbits. Snotty mats on
forearms means a sick rabbit - don't buy. A damp nose (except on very hot
days) might (but doesn't always) mean trouble - be cautious.
Turn the rabbit (or bunny) over to ensure the bottom is
clean (no diarrhea).
(Remnants of a mild bunny diarrhea between 4 - 9 weeks old that has
passed is not a problem.)
Buy at your own risk, and let us know of any problems.
