My oldest son who is 5, will be starting 4-H this year and has chosen to show rabbits! We have the opportunity to get a Rabbit (maybe 2) locally from a breeder. The bucks are GTS New Zealand and the does are Chestnut New Zealand. And they have a litter coming around Valentine's Day. What are the characteristics of this breed? Which sex is more mellow? Should you get 2 to keep eachother company? Not looking to make more Rabbits, so I would get 2 of the same sex. Which brings me back to the whole part of having 2. Necessary?
Hope my questions make sense! Thanks for your time!
