    Would you recommend finding pet rabbits on craigslist or buying them from rabbit breeders? How do you find rabbit breeders? It seems like its a lot of 4-H kids showing their rabbits at county fairs, not breeders. [​IMG]

    Well I want to get a calm, docile and child family breed of rabbit. Maybe a mini lop or rex. What would you suggest? I am new to rabbits and I've never had one.

    I'm not sure where your located, but Pam with www.redneckrabbits.net ships her bunnies. She has very nice bunnies. Several different breeds to choose from. I am getting 3 Lionhead bunnies from her.

    I have found rabbit breeders by googling rabbit breeders and state. Also go to the ARBA site.

    I think Holland Lops are the sweetest bunnies myself. I raise Hollands, Holland/Mini lop cross, and Lionheads and by far, my Hollands are the sweetest natured.

    Here is my website if you want to take a look: http://willowacrelionheads.weebly.com


    WHere are you located at?

    Quote:I have Hollands also and they are awesome. I just got some Polish last August and they have sweet temperments as well.
    I find my mini rex to be pretty moody though. Maybe its just mine.
