Im posting this for a friend. Hes looking to work a rabbit into his show. Ive raised rabbits before so I know how to care for them but don't know the legalities of using them in a show. Can someone help him out. He was also wonder what people prefer when producing them and the prefered breed. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Rabbits are known to carry diseases, so you have to take them to a vet and get their shots, and a physical check up. The vet should know the laws in your ares, so find out from him/her and your local county SPCA and/or animal control.

Best effect, pull a rabbit from a hat, not seen very often.

Netherlands rabbits are best for magic, because they stay small in size.

Thanks Bill. Ill pass that information along. Ive raised rabbits for meat and didn't have to worry about a vet. That Ntherland is a cute little guy.

Abbott's Magic have some nice box effects that use a rabbit in their livestock section. Check them out on line at www.abbottmagic.com

It was a USDA regulation to have a licensee to perform with a rabbit in an act until last year where the rules were changed to allow magicians to own and use up to eight rabbits in an act without a registration

I have owned and used rabbits in my act for more then twelve years and have never had to administer an injection or have any rabbits contracted any disease in all the years I have used them.

When I first started using rabbits, I got the normal pink eyed rabbits to use, they do grow to an enormous size, and in time grow to large to fit into the tricks, it’s the reason I have had so many rabbits, not one rabbit had died since I have had rabbits, I just traded them in for baby rabbits

Now I own New Zealand Dwarf Rabbits, this breed stays small and are very cute

Purchase two rabbits, they seem to be happier when they have a friend to be with and it also gives you the opportunity to vanish one and have it reappear, be sure they are the same sex, or you will have lots of rabbits to contend with Smile Smile Smile Smile
