    IMG_1810.JPG IMG_1811.JPG IMG_1812.JPG I've recently come into four nice rabbits. One Angora and three Lionheads. I Now, I want to breed for wool, but I don't know if I can breed my Lion to my Angora. The Angora is female, but she's older. Not sure how old though. I also have a female I know has been bred before since I have her son. Should I just breed the lion heads together? Or can I cross them? I also have no idea what to do with breeding, since I am not too experienced in the raising of rabbits. The woman I got them from in an experienced breeder, but she won't help me out since she's moved out of state. I have two brushes for them, though I am not sure if they are right for them. I'd appreciate any tips!

    If you're not going to sell the offspring you can cross them specially if you will eat your mistakes. I don't know what the quality of the wool you'll get.
