    After thinking about it for awhile, I decided the other day to sell the 2 mean does.
    I dont have the time to keep 2 does around that I didnt know if I could breed or not.
    Since I sell alot of my rabbits to FFA kids, I didnt want to take the chance of breeding mean rabbits and the babies being mean too.
    I sold them to another rabbit breeder. I told him that the black one can be a bit mean, and he said thats fine, that he already has a doe that you have to use welding gloves to handle.
    I hated selling them, but I didnt want to keep them around,I didnt want to take the chance of someone getting bit.

    I think you made a good choice. I had a really mean doe once, and I did have 1 litter out of her because she was and arba champion, but then she went to a new home.

    Yeah, I think you made a smart choice too. Mind I ask what breed of rabbits they were?
