I raised NZ rabbits when I was a kid. The worst thing is if the mother got upset and ate the young! Some years ago, I tried raising Angoras. They were just a PITA! Intolerant of heat, special diet.

I've actually got the goats fairly contained now. If they get out of hand, the electric box get's plugged in MUWHAHAHAHA
LD- Angoras? man, you must've had a breif period of insanity. I saw some lady at a show once, brushed those things for hours before the show. Then one of her kids put them down in a tub full of shavings. I thought she would lose her mind, out came the brush again.
We had one holland that ate her young, ended up saving 1 baby and surrogated it with another doe, She got busted later on. I have 1 NZ doe right now, she is a she-devil. About ready to make hasenpfeffer out of her, won't tolerate that stuff. She attacks us as soon as cage opens.
My son likes big rabbits, Flemish NZ, had a short stint with Checkered's. Daughter has Netherlands and holland's
