Breeding rules

A black-fire male can begin to mate as early as six months of age, while the rabbit acquires this ability after 5 months after birth. To determine the onset of puberty, it is enough to pay attention to the behavior of the female: her aggressiveness rises sharply, she begins to bite, drag hay, tear down fluff from her chest. If there is no time to observe the behavior, you can put the rabbit in the male’s cage - she will begin to chase the rabbit and take up a mating position.

As soon as a black-red baby is born, the female begins to pay all attention to him, licking and covering her down in the nest. A newly-made mother has the opportunity to qualitatively feed animals in the amount of 7 individuals, her milk is formed after the birth of offspring.

Mostly affectionate and handmade black-fire crawl becomes not only an object for enriching the owner, but also an excellent decorative pet that adorns any household.

When choosing a cage, preference should be given to options with a solid floor, so as not to injure the limbs of animals.

During the period of feeding offspring, the female needs to be fed 3-4 times more, giving preference to herbs, oats, clover. In the winter, it is better to switch to the use of legumes, potatoes, silage and root crops. Concentrates also increase by almost 90%.
