Himalayan Rabbit: Care, Breeding, Information, Prices

Updated on March 1, 2011

Information on Himalayan Rabbits

Himalayan rabbits are a kind gentle rabbit that can get a little large, but I think I like the large rabbits better than the smaller ones. They are easier to litter box train and keep an eye on. If you are looking to own a rabbit for the first time then I would recommend that you get one of these guys. They are known as Chinese, Russian, Egyptian, and the Black Nose. What's great about these rabbits is that they are born white and get their spots as they get older, They also get about 3-4 pounds which makes them the perfect size even for young children.

Breeding Himalayan Rabbits

Want to breed Himalayan Rabbits then here is some great information for you.  Something to keep in mind is that Himalayan Rabbits should be bred at 4-6 months of age and should have their first litter before 10 months old if your gonna breed them.  The reason is the pelvic bones fuse.  This making it impossible or near impossible to naturally give birth. 

Litter size is 2-6 rabbits

Gestation is 28-32 days usually giving birth on the 30th day.

Feeding Himalayan Rabbits

Your Himalayan Rabbits should be given fresh fruit and Vegetables as well as an unlimited supply of food, hay and water.  Also for pregnant females you should feed them alfalala hay.  But for all others use timothy hay for great health.

      Kayla rabbits can be a handful to keep. I think if your mom says to just have the two cats it's probably a good idea.
