Wanted to ask...

Does it make a better difference with rabbits on which of the parents are more friendly?

If you want the kits to be more human sociable is it better to have the buck more friendly, or the doe more friendly out of the two?

I think how much you handle them when young makes an even bigger difference than either parent.

But if I had to choose, I'd try to have the very friendly parent be the doe, because the bunnies grow up with her and learn things from her. Each parent contributes half of the genetics, but the buck is not involved in raising the bunnies.
