I picked up two breeding age rabbits from a local guy about 3 weeks ago, and my female just had an unplanned litter of pups 6 days ago.
I was told the rabbits are New Zealand Long Ears crossed with Belgians. My black and white doe's litter was 8 pups and they are ALL a different color and pattern.. white, black, black/white, blonde, gray, and one is white-ish pink.
My questions are - Is NZ "long ear" a real breed? What do the color of the pups mean? Are some of the colors more "desirable" than others? Why is the one (the blonde) noticeably larger already?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
