My sister brought over 2 bunnies on Thanksgiving. Her son said he would take them from a neighbor that was moving- without asking grandma who is allergic to anything with fur. So they figured since I had rabbits- I would take them. I told her only if they were large rabbits- I will just put them in with the lops in the pen. She said- oh yes- they are big! I keep my french lops outside and used to keep rex rabbits as well years ago with no issues, but these guys are tiny compared to them. I am having serious doubts that they will be able to take the freezing cold temperatures out here. These guys are mini rex (or some cross with rex fur)- I doubt they weigh more than 2-3 lbs. I am not going to put them in my rabbit pen and don't have an indoor area for them. If I leave them in a wire cage outside with a make shift roof on it- will they survive? or should I just give them away? They are pretty cute- but really what do I need with a bunch of mini rexes that can't be used for food? Oh- I say a bunch because the doe is supposedly pregnant. sigh.
