    I have had a couple litters before, but none of them have had fur like this.
    All three lionheads have a strip of white fur down their backs.

    They are 6 days old.
    When will they start to grow more fur on the rest of their bodies?
    Most kits grow fur the color of they will have when their older, already I notice that their colors keep changing.


    Not the best pic, camera ran out of battery.
    See how it only has fur growing on the back and not on the sides.

    From what I understand of lionheads, this is what you see when the lionhead has a double dose of the mane gene. I believe that they grow the hair in more slowly at first, but when the hair grows in, it will be a lot of it.

    This is a must read for lionhead breeders: http://www.circuslionsrabbitry.com/lionheadrabbitmanes.htm
