Lionhead Rabbit Info

March 5th, 2009

Welcome to our Lionhead Rabbit Information site. We hope to provide you with information and inspiration to make one of these lovely creatures a part of your family. If you’re tired of dogs barking and cats causing a ruckus, a nice quiet lionhead rabbit, called so because of the unique mane it grows that resembles the mane of a lion, may be just the pet you’re looking for.

Although there is much information available on the internet about rabbits and even about lionhead rabbits, we hope to gather the essential information you need all in one place.

lionhead rabbits are relatively new on the scene, not yet recognized by the ARBA (American Rabbit Breeders Association). They come in a veritable rainbow of colors and can exhibit no mane, a single mane or a double mane. Responsible breeders are working on breeding lionheads to produce a limited and very specific range of colors. In fact, recognition by the ARBA is being sought for just one color at this time.

lionhead rabbits are a small breed, weighing in at around 3 pounds or so. Since they are small, they require just a normal size rabbit cage and their food consumption is relatively small. Like most rabbits, lionheads can be raised on a diet of 16% protein rabbit pellets and a good quality timothy hay. Vegetable treats should be limited to once or twice a week and shouldn’t be fed to rabbits at all until they are at least 6 months old. If you just can’t resist giving them treats, buy a package of rabbit chews at your local pet store.

Lionhead rabbits, like all of the long hair breeds should be brushed regularly. You can do this weekly, or even less frequently but the more you do it, the more both you and your rabbit will enjoy it. Not only is it enjoyable for your rabbit and therapeutic for you, but it will diminish the possibility of digestive problems due to hairballs (wool block). Brushing should be done with a brush designed for rabbits or cats and please remember to be careful because a rabbit’s skin is sensitive. We have found that lionheads manes do not tend to mat very easily so they are much easier to care for than angora rabbits.

Lionhead rabbits can live for 6 to 10 years, so keep that in mind when you consider acquiring a pet. It will give you years of enjoyment and companionship.

Wanting to buy bunny from good breeder?

October 9th, 2013

Looking to purchase a health well cared for 4 week old mini rex or lionhead bunny from a breeder? Is a safe website to use? Where do you recommend purchasing a healthy bunny? I also here petsmart and other chain pet shops are the worse place to purchase a bunny? Is this true? and if so where did you get your bunny?

4 weeks is way too young for rabbits to be sold. Get one that is 8 weeks old if health is a priority of yours.

Don’t buy from websites like that, either. Very bad idea. What you want to find are the individual rabbitry websites. Many breeders set up a website that states where they’re located and what breeds they raise, plus contact information.

To find a breeder near you, google the breed your interested in, the city or county you live in, and the word "rabbitry." For example, if I’m looking for Mini Rexes in Santa Rosa, California, I’d google this: mini rex santa rosa rabbitry

Most of the time you can find rabbitry websites this way, especially for common breeds like Mini Rex, Holland Lops, Netherland Dwarfs, and Lionheads. If you’re looking for a rarer breed, you might have to do a bit of driving to meet a breeder.

Also, rabbitry websites don’t always appear on the top of the google list. Look for names like "Double Dutch Rabbitry" or "Farm Hill Hoppers." Rabbitries usually have names like this. If the words "pet" or "classifieds" are in the link title, then that’s not what you’re looking for. Responsible breeders breed rabbits to show them, not to supply to the pet market (you can certainly buy pet rabbits from them, though, which are usually just rabbits who don’t have the right coloring or for other reason aren’t up to snuff for showing).

Here’s an example of a rabbitry website that I found by googling "mini rex santa rosa rabbitry"

You can tell it’s a rabbitry website because they usually contain an About Us page, Our Mini Rex (or whatever breeds they have, which may be split into separate pages), some kind of for sale page, and a contact page. Of course there’s a lot of variety but that’s usually the layout of these websites made personally by the breeders.

Rarely is the for sale information on these websites ever current, so don’t be discouraged if they have no rabbits advertised for sale. Rabbit breeders tend to make these sites and then just forget about them lol but the contact information and breeds they raise is usually still valid. Just look over their sales policy and find a phone number to ask about their bunnies.

Another method of finding breeders is to attend a rabbit show. They’re free to go to if you’re not entered and you’ll get to see hundreds of rabbits and many breeders. Here’s the website where you can find out the dates of shows in your area:
Simply select your state and click search. It will bring up a list of shows in various cities ordered by date. You may be surprised that rabbit shows are rather frequent and there may in fact be one just minutes away from you! Rabbit people don’t advertise that these shows are going on to the general public (you probably won’t read about it anywhere or see signs). Only people in the rabbit world tend to know about them, so hey, if you’re into bunnies, don’t miss out!
Note: Most shows are located at fair grounds, but if you’re not sure where a show is being held, you can either look up the catalog or Email the show secretary to ask.

Everything I should know about a lion head rabbit?

September 11th, 2013

Tomarrow I’m getting a lion head rabbit and I feel totally Prepared but I was just wondering if anyone has some extra tips to help me out about my new fuzzy friend :) thanks

Congrats on getting a bunny..well…going to get a bunny… I too have a lion head bunny and one thing i can tell you about them that is a hassel. Hair. Their fluffy hair will be all over the place when its time for them to shed. For more fluffy bunnies you need to brush there fur everyday. First to stop loose hair from going everywhere, and second, to make sure they dont digest any when they go to clean themselves. Lion head bunnies are pretty much similar to other bunnies, they just have…a lion mane haha Good Luck!

how big would a new Zealand mix with a lion head rabbit get?

August 14th, 2013

I recently got two new bunnies. They are siblings so they came from the same litter but one is a lion head with a pure white coat and pink eyes. The other one looks 100% new Zealand and s slightly bigger than the lion head sibling. He also is pure white with pink eyes.

New Zealands are large rabbits. There is no predicting the size of any mixed breed rabbit. Sound like one took after the NZ and the other the Lion-Head.

Can you breed a jersey wolly rabbit to a lionhead rabbit?

August 14th, 2013

I am thinking about getting a Jersey wolly rabbit to breed with my lionhead male rabbit. I already have a female lionhead to breed with him but I also thought with the Jersey wollys hair and the lionheads hair they would make pretty babies.

why do you want to be a BYBers?

You clearly only care about the money you may make off the ill bred mongrel bunnies and dont care at all about the rabbits or the fact that people like you are the reason why there are hundreds of rabbits in shelters that are destroyed since there are no homes for them
