    Hi! I'll join in with you lol. I have rabbits for meat, breeding, and pets. We dont do shows. My kids have had Lionheads for awhile, just for pets and they would breed them once in a while to sell the babies for a little pocket money. I decided not too long ago that since Im the one paying for the feed and doing most of the actual care that I might as well get some that we can use as well lol. So we currently have: 1 Lionhead Doe that has 5 four week old babies, 1 Lionhead Buck, two Californian Does, Two New Zealand white does, two New Zealand black does, 1 New Zealand red doe, a broken black new zealand buck, and a siamese satin buck. Oh and I am sitting for my friends buck at the moment that i have no idea what breed he is but hes gorgeous :). Two of my does are bred and will be kindling soon. These are all my breeders so i have yet to actually process any lol. But we have a large family (7 kids) so everything we do has to be large scale lol.
