    Default Albino buns!

    I just saw an advert along the lines of "Baby rabbits for sale, 8 weeks old. 10 each. Albino ones free."
    So if anyone has an albino bun, can I please see some photos of him/her? I want to see what's so "wrong" with albino rabbits...........

    Personally, I think there is NOTHING wrong with albino rabbits, I'm just using the advert I saw as an excuse to look at some beatiful buns!

    some people think albino (REW) are not the nicest looking buns. I used to until I had one come to me to be bonded. She was the sweetest buns. Shortly after I got belle, but she is a (BEW), so not technically a albino.

    they are often one of the last of the litter to go, hence their free pricetag

    I love albino buns. I think with the majority of animals, albinos are seen as unattractive

    I don't have any albino buns, I have a gorgeous Himalayan piggie though with pinky-red eyes if you want a pic of her

    It could also be that REW's eyesight is quite often bad too.

    I would LOVE to see a pic of her!
    I have an albino rat called Daisy, and she's gorgeous, she's got the most lovely personality, but everyone who meets her prefers her sister Bella because shes brown and cream with dark eyes Daisy's eyesight isn't as good as Bella's, but I don't see why that should affect people's opinion Either way, I albinos just as much as any other!

    Sophie isn't Albino, but half of her litter were. She still has to scan like a albino. Belle's eyesight is iffy too,she scans and doesn't notice things until they are quite close, but its her hearing that I worry with her. She does seem quite deaf, and I can approach her whilst sleeping, and she is completely none responsive.
