Online Groups & Forums

If you're interested in chatting to keen rabbit enthusiasts, simply join any of the following groups. Such forums provide a great opportunity to discuss rabbit problems and share experiences with like minded people. You can receive help by asking numerous questions, though preferably one at a time! It is also a good idea to search the group's 'archives' (type in key words) to find whatever subjects were previously discussed. So too, you will enjoy looking at everyone's photo albums or include your favourite ones.

My website was mentioned in the April 2009 edition of Better Homes and Gardens magazine. I sent them a copy of my book 'The Wonderful World of Pet Rabbits' to help the researchers design an ideal rabbit hutch. I also put the them onto rabbit fanciers in NSW (so they'd have some lovely rabbits hopping around) for the TV show. Consequently, in the Better Homes and Gardens programme our bunnies were fortunate to receive some fabulous promotion, which is all for the good of the fancy.

For those who missed the TV segment
here's a link to the video (scroll down to find the heading: 'Keeping rabbits and build a bunny hutch' then click on the 'Watch the Video' – there's an ad beforehand, so just wait until it's over
