Hi, I'm new to the group. I came across this forum while doing one of my weekly searches online for any info about the mini series release date.

I've been fostering/adopting rabbits for about the past 15 years and have volunteered with several rescue groups. I currently have 3 very spoiled free-range house bunnies, Phoebe (a Giant Chinchilla), Pipkin (an English Spot, although my Pipkin is a doe) and Bigwig (a Flemish Giant.)

So needless to say, Im a big WD fan. Especially the books and the movie soundtrack.  My favorite format is the audiobook, the narrator did an awesome job and really brought the story to life with his different character voices.

Here in the United States, any WD info is scarce and I'm so excited about the upcoming BBC/Netflix adaption.

Thanks. House rabbits are great pets. They are funny when I put the DVD of WD on. When they hear their names being spoken in the movie their ears perk up and they look around trying to figure out who's talking to them. Especially the part where The Threrah calls back Bigwig to "chew his ears off" for letting in Hazel and Fiver.

Welcome to the warren, Rabscuttle! :)
The audiobook is indeed also one of my most preferred mediums, next to the series. The narrator has such a nice voice I could listen to for hours, when I hear the book every now and then again. x3

Feel warmly welcomed in our cozy, little warren! :bigwig3

Welcome, it's a wonderful site. I'm really excited for the miniseries too been looking for more info every day. House rabbits, that's really cool wish I could do that with my mini rexes, are they all spayed/neutered to be able to use their litter so well?

Yes, spaying and neutring is key in order to litter train a rabbit.  If you do that, and put their hay rack directly over their litterbox, it is quite easy to litter train them. Rabbits have a natural urge to silflay and pass hraka at the same time, so if you do those two things, they pretty much litter train themselves.

Ive never had Rexes yet, but they are beautiful rabbits. How long have you had them?

My mini Rex rabbits are both sisters, Mickey and Clover(WD hutch rabbit) are both 2 years old. They are good at urinating in their litter but still leaves hraka all over their pen  :vervain-facepalm how old are yours and how large are they I know some of those bunnies are quite large breeds.

Bigwig was between 14 and 15 pounds last time he was at the vet. He may have gotten a little bigger since. Last time he was there, the nurses were taking turns going back and taking bets on how much he weighed before putting him on the scale. Pipkin is about 6 pounds. I estimate they are both between a year and two years old. Phoebe is 10 pounds and a few years older.  Bigwig and Pipkin are a bonded pair. Phoebe lives in my bedroom because she and Pipkin hate each other and will fight.
