I know a small time breeder that has a herd (I think thats what you call a group of rabbits?) of Netherland dwarf and holland lop But anyway ,back to topic. I have told her that I would like to start raising rabbits for shows.I have read many books and all have seemed to say to breed only pedigreed rabbit,never rabbits that are mixed bred or without "papers"-this is how I`ll refer the pedigree or/and the registered rabbts. I wanted to find out what I need to get when I actually buy my breeding stock to produce rabbits that will have "papers" instead of selling babies that will not have "papers". I am so confused! Please explain this and if you register and/or pedigree on your rabbits please explain the significance of these. Here`s a plain question to make my question a little easier to understand; What is the purpose for a pedigree and what is the purpose for a registered rabbit? I want to find out the real meaning in the "world of show biz" for rabbits.
