The Doe is stressed hence the canabalism
The Doe should be retired from breeding and the Kits found Pet homes
I could say soooooooooooooooooo much more but I dont feel like being Infracted today
I agee with jackie here that it is the mum who has done the damage that should be retired from breeding as that is where the problem lies, not with the babies who's ears are missing.

firght i wasnt going to post this morning but i really feel i have to on this...
every and any rabbit with a deformity provided it can still live a good happy quality of life should be homed in a pet home (preferebly neutered first) no breeder should cull them jsut ensure they are not bred from in future
secondly in this instance it is the mother who is at fault and therefore the mother should be neutered retired fro mbreeding and allowed to live a happy pet life.
3rdly how can anyone condone culling an animal because it nacks up the breed?! surely yo uaccept mistakes happen and rehome as a pet but dont continue with that blood line?!
am outraged people do this. x
I had an earless bun due to overgrooming. Can't see why they should be culled! But I feel that the doe should not be bred from again as this trait could be passed on...
LURCHERS DESERVE BETTER - AND SO DO BUNNIES!
It's a no here as well.
We've had a few ear less bunnies come through here or on occasion 1 eared rabbits.
The first 1 was here for a while even though he always got people saying how sweet he was, but all the others have gone out very quickly.I do feel that the people taking them on do it to start of with because they feel sorry for them but then fall in love with them for there personality.

Bobtails recently had a group of bunnies in, who had parts of their ears missing, and they all were reserved very quickly. Nothing wrong with earless bunnies, they just look like big guinea pigs.
I dont think buns should be killed because they've had their ears nibbled... I know when my bun had an accidental litter about 6 years ago no, one of the babies had a ear that was ripped a bit because mummies nails caught it when they were very small.... and he was one of the first to be re homed..... the man called him shredder!! (suited him well actually because he used to rip up newspaper for amusement)
Its like Rimmi - he was bred for the intention of breeding (not by me) but when the lady recieved him, he wasnt perfect and he was going to be 'got rid of' (he has some slight white ticking... no good for showing.... and white bits on the tips of his ears) which is why I went and bought him off her. Hes such a lovely character of a bun....I cant imagine what they were going to do with him.
I would be proud to own a bun with no ears. I wouldnt go out just to find one but if I saw one needing a home and I had room then I would.
Uh.... got to go..... Rimmi is breaking into the food tub!
A definate no
otherwise this little girl wouldn't be here
