    I think so Wayne. We have a breeder forum on rabbitsonline.net and sometimes there is a heated discussion about meat rabbits but we generally all co-exist. I don't do meat rabbits anymore, but I breed and show which requires a lot of culling.

    I also have a pair of mini rex, and a dutch doe, but I don't have pics of them yet. Don't know why, just never got around to it! I love the rexes, they are so soft and sweet! Oh, btw, the pics are of 2 does (black? chocolate?) and a buck (spotted)

    All three of them? These aren't minis though, but they aren't much bigger. That's really neat!

    I was just going by the pictures they look like rex. How old are they? If they are still young may be they are standard rex. Is their fur real soft like rex?

    I believe all three are grown. I bought the first chocolate one at an auction in July, and she is not much bigger than she was then. The other two were given to me by a friend, and they had already been used for breeding (she used them for meat rabbits) so I would say they are grown as well.
    Their fur is really soft, not so much the buck, but the two does are. But the fur on the other two mini rex's I have is much tighter, I guess, it looks more compact. But I know those two are babies. I'll have to get pics of my other ones. But the mini rex's I have are smaller than the other bunnies. None of them are very big, but the ones that I know are mini rex are smaller than any of them. If you know how big a dutch rabbit is, that's how big all the bigger ones are, and the mini's are probably 1/4 smaller. How big do standard rex's get?

    May be satins their fur is so shiny that is why I am thinking satin. There is a mini satin now too.

    I would think on this forum you would not get an flack from anyone about having meat rabbits.
