    Yay!!! I have been wanting these for SO long... supposedly they are really good quality show rabbits and the lady that had them just had too many and wanted to re-home some of them. They are tattooed inside their ears, does anyone know what that means? I just wanted to share because I love them and they are so beautiful and nice!

    This is the Doe... Sweetpea.

    I love your first buck's big buck head. I want to squeeze him!

    The tattoos are one of the ways a breeder IDs their rabbits. You can tell your three apart, sure, but imagine walking into a barn of 100 Californians! They also must be tattooed in the left ear in order to be shown. If they have a tattoo in the right ear, it means they;ve been registered, too.

    I believe they all have tattoos in the left ear.


    They are SO sweet! When I picked them up the lady was like they aren't "pet" rabbits, they aren't the kind you'll want to pick up and carry around, they will kick and scratch... But so far they have been just the nicest little (big) things! Other than a kick here or there they are REALLy sweet! I am so happy with them!
