So...my husband and I have been trying to start up a meat rabbitry since February. We were so excited to breed them when they came of age the first of September. Our buck is a honey color Palomino, very sweet and personable. We have tried to breed him to 5 different does, and nobody likes him! He is always ready to do his job, but none of these girls, 4 of them proven breeders, want anything to do with him. The first 2 girls were satins. One perished in the heat, the other just quit eating and drinking one day and a few days later she died. The other three are a New Zealand red, a New Zealand white, and a satin/california cross. All of them have had 2 litters, the white has had 3. I just got these three yesterday and tried to breed them today. Are you supposed to wait longer for them to adjust before breeding? What factors could be keeping them from wanting to breed? I just thought it would be easy, since they're rabbits, and you know what they say...I would appreciate any input! Oh also these three girls were bred with the same old buck and I did not purchase him. Are they just used to him and don't want my buck?
