thank you thank you, im very excitied!!! im hoping to bond all 3 together...which really going to have to research, heifer and moose are already bonded!! i going to have all 3 spayed im thinking at the same time and taken in together, seperate carries, but this way they will all heal together....im thinking this is a good idea...any thoughts?

i have ALWAYS wanted a flemish giant croos but couldnt find one so i got heifer and moose instead and now that i have found almost exactly what i was looking for...i just couldnt say no!

She's so cute! What a funny mix tho... I see nothing of either breed in her. (And I wonder why a breeder would cross-breed anyways, very weird.) How big is she?

If I were you, I would go ahead and spay the two older ones as soon as they are old enough and get them done and healing. And then get the younger one spayed once she is old enough. The truth is, Heifer and Moose are tentatively bonded right now, but that bond can (and most likely will) break once puberty hits, unless you can intercept it and get them spayed in time. A female pair is notoriously difficult to bond. Three females... yikes. Your only course of action will be to spay ASAP and really work with them.

Heifer has passed away last nite. I left for work in the morning and she was happy binkying around, eating and nothing abnormal....came home fromwork and she was gone. I am very upset with this. She went to her vet today to see if they can tell me why she passed. Moose is very depressed about this.

MY question is, I am to be geting a new bunny on the 28th, next sunday, and i am not sure if i still should. the one in the pic is not the one i am getting for she is gone. I am getting a male and they will be apart until he is fixed and then her. any advice on this would be great!!! im worried about moose for they were full sisters and i dont want to loose her as well. as of right now, i am waiting to hear from the vet on what happened.

I'm very sorry that Heifer passed. Let us know when you hear back from the vet. You should let the breeder know as well what has happened. There may be something they can do on their end to prevent this from occurring again... most importantly, not separating mom and babies before 8 weeks old.

(((Binky free Heifer!)))

As far as getting another baby right now, if I were in your position, I would wait. At least wait until your first rabbit is fixed before bringing a second into the house, especially one of the opposite sex. You're just asking for trouble doing that. And now that there may be something wrong with Moose (if her and Heifer both had a problem) you wouldn't want to expose the new rabbit to this. If something comes back and it was traced back to the breeder, I would strongly recommend you not deal with this breeder again, but rather adopt an altered, vet-checked bunny thru a reputable rescue.

Oh I am so sorry to hear about Heifer. Sometimes there's just no warning, and they're just gone... Binky free little Heifer.

thank you for your binky free's. there was absolutly no warning at all for her passing. she was doing fine in the morning and when i came home she was gone. i have contacted the breeder and they have told me that no one has had a bunny from them pass away and she was the first.

news from the vet...they told me she had a heart murmur and that was all they could find wrong. no illness or anything along those lines...and this is what took her life. how do bunnies get heart murmurs?!?!

I suspect they are just born with heart murmers. Heart problems would take them sudden like that, without warning. I'm really sorry. This must be hard on you having lost Whiteout and now Heifer. (((Hugs)))

I suggest you hold off on getting another just yet. Concentrate on spending lots of time with Moose if she's grieving. It will strengthen your bond with her. Bringing an new rabbit into her space can be stressful - as is bonding sometimes. I think you would both benefit just being each others companion for now. Once she's older and fixed, you'll have more of an idea of her personality which should help in getting her a friend.

Again, I'm sorry for your loss. *Binky Free Heifer!*

Poor baby. Hopefully she went quickly. I'm guessing like with people, you can have a heart murmur and have problems your entire life... or have a murmur and live to be 95 years old with hardly a complication. Hopefully this will ease your mind that it wasn't preventable and there was nothing you could do except love her to bits, which you did :o)

Poor little one. Binky free sweet Heifer!

Try to spend extra cuddle time with Moose and give her lots of attention. Also keep an eye on her eating as she may slow down or stop if she is very sad. I used to have 2 bonded bunnies that were the best of friends and did everything together. One passed away and the other one was so sad without him. The saddest part was when he would look for him - oh it would break my heart. It took about a week or so and he wasn't so sad and started eating like normal. After a month or so I bonded him with my other rabbit and he was perfectly happy again. So just give her time and extra love and she will come around. She just misses her sister just like you.

Hugs to you - so sorry you lost this sweet little one.
In loving memory of my sweet, precious little buns - Bunny (Bunny-boo), Bugs (Bug-a-lugs), Flopsy (Flopsy-wopsy) and my little angel girl Boogity (Boogie-girl)

Good call Miranda! Over breeding just to produce a certain look can certainly lead to some health defects too. Some less responsible breeders may not be upfront about this. It's rather damaging to reputations of Breeders, especially those who are trying to keep strong, healthy lines of their breeds.

IT IS THE SAME BREEDER!

 

this is what her adds on kijiji say.

They are bred with a Flemish giant buck so they are larger than the most lionhead bunnies. They are really Beautiful. They would be a perfect house pet for your kids,brother,sister or even yourself. I am Asking $10 Each they are ready to Go. Would Also sell them to Pet Stores or Rabbit Breeders.
Serious Responses Required Please
 
 
 
 
We Have 6 Brown Meat Rabbits For Sale, We bought the mother from a meat rabbit breeder. The father of the meat rabbits is a Flemish Giant. The Babies are still called meat rabbit because the flemish giant rabbit is also a meat breed. They are now approximantly 11 weeks old, They are ready to go. I would sell them to Rabbit breeders, For meat and also for pets.
Serious Responses Required Please.
 
 
 
These Dwarf rabbits are now 4 weeks old and are ready to go in 2 weeks. The Mother is a Dwarf Rabbit and the Father is a Flemish Giant. They are going to be a little bit bigger than the normal Dwarf rabbit but they will look really beautiful when they get older. I would Sell them to pet Stores, rabbit breeders and for sure as Pets
 
 
 
We Have 5 Flemish Giant Rabbits For Sale. They are 13 weeks old and are ready to go. This is a large breed and is also used for meat, pets and breeding. They are mostly around 10 to 15 pounds. We are asking $15. We Would sell them to breeders, For Meat and for pets. We only have males left. The Females are all sold out.

this is off the home page from their website: (im editing out her e-mail adress)


Welcome

We Have A Rabbitry For Almost 1 Year. I have Lots of experience with rabbits. I did It when I was young and I always wanted to have another rabbitry. We Sell Different types of breeds like Flemish Giant, Holland Lop and some other breeds. We only have 2 Bucks So most of the largest breeds are bred with the Flemish Giant Bucks. And the smaller Breeds are mostly bred with a Holland lop buck. Almost all of my rabbits live in wooden cages, and we feed them corn and pellets also some vegeables. If you see something you would like to buy from the Snoeijers Rabbitry Please email me at *.*.*.* or If you have any question please also email me. Only Serious Response Required.!
 

i underlined where she specifies that they only have 2 bucks. im assuming 1 holland lop, 1  flemmie. and its sad because none of the babies that have been posted, are fathered by a lop, ALL are from a flemmi even the little dwarfs, its sad!
