    I've heard mixed reviews on rabbit colonies in general, especially angora colonies. What do you guys think? I've talked to a couple people who keep their angoras in a community (bucks in cages though) and they seem to have no issues with fur staining, decrease in quality, etc. what are your experiences?

    i personally really like rabbit colonies...i'm not a fan of keep animals in cages. As for angora's, it is harder, but not impossible. to keep their fur nice, i clean the living quarters every morning. not a full clean out, just scoop out the worst parts. It's worked pretty well, and their fur is still pretty nice, though come harvest time i have to pick little bits of hay and stuff from it.
