That is really interesting about the yarn. It sounds like a full time rabbit business. I have seen a woman at our Farmer's Market spinning I think alpaca wool and selling scarves and blankets and other things. I have watched videos about using rabbit pellets for worm food and having worm compost for the garden. My 2 rabbits are side by side in the hutch and the hutch is big for them because they are not the big Flemish Giants. I am not going to put them in the pen. Bobm is right about the diva females. The oldest one was an amazing rabbit and ruled everything. When their owner left them and the new renters came with dogs, they turned the dogs in the pen and most of the rabbits went down in the tunnel they had, but she was out in the yard. She saw the dogs and they chased her and she made a big wide circle and ran towards the fence and jumped through the wire and that is when we decided to build the hutch. They caught the dogs and the other rabbits gout out of the pen and into my garden.

I'm interested in getting an angora rabbit. Exactly how much is the wool worth? Is vacation a trip to Tahiti or a trip to a log cabin nearby?

I used to be a dog groomer, and I'd absolutely love to have something long haired to brush out. I just haven't gotten one out of fear my dogs would startle it and give it a heart attack or something.
