    Hello, I have for free a gray and white female mini-lop rabbit; she is approx. 6 or 7 years old; she is not nice but with attention I think she could become tame; here is a photo of her:

    Also for free, I have a Golden Lace Wyandotte Roo'; large and handsome - personality matches looks; approx 7 mos. old; raised from baby from MM Hatchery; here is two photos of him:

    I prefer pick up only as I don't think they can be shipped. But if anyone has ever shipped live animals before and the person interested wants to pay the shipping charges please contact me.

    I know I can't control what happens to them once they go home with someone else but I prefer they both live out their lives as pets and never see a stew pot...

    Thank you!

    Warm regards,
    TJ

    I'm interested in the GLW roo- where in MIssouri are you located? Feel free to PM if you like.
    Thanks!

    Are you sure that is a GLW roo? I don't see any lacing on him at all. ?? Maybe doesn't show up in the pic. Or could he be mixed?? Looks more like a Rhode Island Red, or something, except for the comb.

    Hello JudyMcKinn, I'm pretty sure that he is a GLW. I've researched the web and according to the MM Catalog and my order - he's a GLW... I surely don't want to get rid of him but I just don't see any other way around it. And there's no way my DH will build me a little house and pen just for 'Lambeau' and a few girls... (*sigh*)

    Blessings,
    TJ

    I just looked at Feathersite, and apparently the GLW roo's don't have much of the lacing. Sorry, need to look before (not after) I question. LOL Where are you in MO?

    The lacing in the roos usually shows up on the breast. If you look closely you can see it [​IMG]

    ...You know, I just love this roo' and I really don't want to get rid of him... Can I keep my other roo'(a golden Polish-you can see him in the bkgrd. of the 2nd photo) and a hen in a rabbit hutch (a large one) and let BIG GLW have the house, hens & pen?

    ...Just a thought. As you can tell, I'm grasping at straws here... lol [​IMG]

    ...Thank you!

    I don't see why not! I used to cage my chickens when I was still living at home b/c of limited space. You will just need to watch for foot problems, though they aren't as much of an issue in light breeds like polish compared to a breed like, say, dark cornish, but they do occur. Also, if they have never been caged on wire, they will more than likely freak out a bit at first. Move them into their new home at night so you don't cause them as much stress. It may take a few days for them to settle down, but you should be able to do this! Good luck.
