I have just recently started the whole rabbit thing and I raise 3 different breed and checkereds is one of them. I think they are absolutely wonderful animals and yes some are testy but I have others that just love to give and get kisses. I am having some trouble though with a few of them getting sores on their feet. I have resting boards in their cages but that doesn't seem to help much and I was wondering if there was anything else I can do to stop the rest from getting the sores. Also is there anything I can do to help the one's with sores.
