    Re: Rainbow is rejecting rabbits.

    I have yet to get sonny to eat rabbits and as of the last feeding heís refusing rats also. Iíve been wondering if heís in breeding mode.

    So I have read different theories on it. Some say the males are driven to get to the females. Some say the females are driven to get with the males. Truth is most likely a combination of both. The males get the testosterone boost and the females putting off pheromones. Either way the drive to continue the blood line is an ornate designed of every species on the planet.

    Not that I am planning on breeding, the question is, "At what point is nature stronger than our desire to keep them from it?" and "The ethics of breeding VS not breeding?". Boy am I asking some real though questions today. I will start a new thread for this discussion.

    Re: Rainbow is rejecting rabbits.

    Not sure how you feed her but when I had my golden child she started rejecting rabbits but would take as many rats as offered. That lasted about 4 months, I still offered her a rabbit every feeding. My wife joking suggested that maybe she didn't want it head first and to offer it backwards, sure enough she nailed it instantly. She would only take rabbits that way from then on. Might be worth trying to switch things up.

    My male is currently only showing interest in rats, and for whatever reason he will not strike unless he can go for the tail. I have no idea why this started but itís quite annoying. Especially since Iíve been trying to get him on rabbits, sometimes he seems really interested but wonít strike, so I stick a rat in and heíll only go for it if I offer it butt first.
