This can be handy when working with a rabbit who would rather that you didn't.
I recently had an anonymous comment made on my blog stating that I sold sick mangey rabbits to them, rabbits with cut up feet and diarrhoea.
I thought I'd take a moment to comment on that.
1. I have a health care package in place for rabbits that I sell that "I" own/breed. I don't offer health care packages on rescues as I can't tell you much about them beyond, they passed my temperament test and appear to be healthy.
2. I DO NOT knowingly sell sick rabbits. and if I do, you would know that your rabbit is sick if you pay attention to it and let me know within 24 hours. Then bring the rabbit back and I'll replace it for you.
3. I've not ever had mange in my rabbits, so I can't see how I could sell a rabbit with a disease that I've never had in my rabbitry.
4. Cut up feet? I don't understand that one. I do occasionally get rats through that nibble on toes. But I tell folks should that be the case BEFORE they buy the rabbit , and the rabbits end up healing just fine, they just don't have toe nails on that one paw. In any case, that rabbit wouldn't leave the rabbitry until the injury was healed up.
5. I have not ever sold a rabbit with diarrhoea. Diarrhoea kills rabbits quickly so I simply wouldn't do that. NOW.. if you buy a rabbit from me and don't follow my feed recommendations and the rabbit proceeds to get ill from feed changes that is NOT my decision or responsibility.
6. I make recommendations to everyone who purchases a rabbit from me. I give out a care sheet as well. If people choose not to follow those recommendations, that a decision that they choose to make. Ergo negating my responsibility.
I thought this was neat to watch, perhaps you will to. :)
I sold a young girl (friend of the family a while back for a steep discount). Part of her discount was coming over and helping me put things away for the winter.
Today was the day for tidying up and putting things away.
Her brother helped really well too. In return he got some grain mix for his mice. :)
Her younger siblings helped by taking corn off the cob for me. We added that to the grain mix for the bunnies as well.
What all did we do?
1. made grain mix for the winter
2. picked and put away the garbage
3. swept out the shed.
4. raked the brown tent.
5. put all the wire away for the winter. We'll rebuild rabbit cages in the spring.
6. got the tent ready for the hay to go in next week.
After they left we took the time to get warm and then we put and tossed out garbage that was floating around the yard and put away items that needed putting away.
It was a good and hard days work.

I have been breeding rabbits for a quite a few years. I thoroughly enjoy them as animals and think they make great pets. I also like to take some of them to rabbit shows to see how they measure up to the standards.
