We sell a litter or two of angora rabbits every year.  This improves our bloodlines and our fiber production.  I like to sell rabbits to new rabbit owners that are looking at getting a fiber animal that will double as a pet.  I know people are going to want to hold their bunnies.  Whenever we have a litter of bunnies, the kids are on rabbit duty.  They are in charge of playing with them frequently so that they are used to being held and handled.  That way, when the rabbits are weaned and go to their new homes, they don’t have to be “tamed” or “calmed.”

Here is Cyprus working on his rabbit duty.  He had just had an upset with his sister, and you can see how comforting the bunny is to him.
