The ol' rabbit from tophat would do the trick, but I hate to admit this but, I'd hate to be the rabbit that comes out from that prop, I'd rather do it the hard way ala t**le stealing. But it is still up to you though. Tora's props are wonderful, Tora's props contributed a lot to the innovation of magic. Goodluck M&M!

You'll have so many great options. I have great success with a rabbit wringer, a production box, and a circus wagon. Make sure you get Netherland Dwarfs, or Hotots, otherwise your baby rabbits will grow too big for your props.

Remember also, that if you use a rabbit in a magic show you are suppose to get a license to do so by the USDA.

There are posts on this topic about how to do this. It's fairly easy to do.

I have a Goffin Cockatoo, That's the smaller one, and He is about 17 years old. I do not know what they sell for now, but I think we paid $750. I'm not really sure because that was a long time ago.
He is really, really friendly to me, but will try to bite most others.

MandM... if you are in the states, you may want to check into licensing for your rabbit, they are trying to crack down on that. If your shows are Private functions then you may get away with it, but if public, you may want to consider licensing. It is not that hard to deal with if you do proper caging and health care, then it is a walk in the park. but if you are not careful in handling your animal family then it could be an issue. Just another thing to consider when thinking of dealing with rabbits. wish you the best of luck.

Oh ya!!! keeping on Topic, If you do animal manipulation, Fancy word for producing animals without a prop such as a box etc. then we suggest the Richard Hughes Livestock production Bag, A great way to produce a rabbit from silks. made for different sizes of animals.

No one wants the goverment involved in something else they can mess up. Once they get involved there is no getting rid of them.

You do want you have to do but contacting the USDA on this is like offering to pay more taxes to me.

Sorry Chris, you know I like you but I would be less than honest if I said anything else.

Amen brother... amen. but the best bet for m&m is to use the livestock production bag, this would give him many different ways to produce the cute little critter, from a hat,Basket. etc. with this bag, you would only be limited by your imagination! And don't let USDA scaRE you M&M If you do large public venues then maybe,, but small and private venues, I bet you would do ok without licensing. Good to see you chime in Richard. Working on our project over the next few weeks, should have video for you soon.

Hey Guys! Thanks for your advice! I appreciate it! My brother and I were thinking about doing a rabbit routine! Starting off by one production, doing the wringer. Making it appear somewhere else. Producing another one and making them both disappear! -Bobby

If you have little or no experience with keeping rabbits I strongly suggest getting a book on rabbits. Learning how to care for them properly is the most important step in owning rabbits.

Your local extension service or a 4-H club can help you find information on caring for rabbits.

Also if you can find show rabbit breeders (we had one in our area), they sometimes have rabbits that are not suitable for show because they do not fit the conformation requirements for the particular breed. For instance, netherland dwarfs must have certain length of ears. There is nothing wrong with them but if the ears are not in fitting with the breed you can get a good price on them. Sometimes you can even work out a "rent a rabbit" deal with the breeders.

Yes, that is best but if they are not show rabbits you can get a better price sometimes.

If you get the dwarfs, then you must get Richards Supreme Livestock production The smaller version( for Fruits) This would be perfect.. I have had mine for months now, and it is very versitle. It allows me to produce my critters ANYWHERE I can dream up.

http://www.hughesmagic.com he should have a video of himself producing oranges from the load, but this same prop could very easily produce your dwarfs. Richard hughes (hugmagic) here on Café, makes these by hand, and has done a special addition for my loads of 10 pounds or better, works well for my Big Rabbit. just pm hugmagic or go to hes web site at thelink I posted. this is a great prop.

Dwarfs are great. I have never had a dwarf try to bite anyone. Other breads that I have had tried to bite. An important point: don't put the rabbits together even if the are the same sex. They will still hump each other. That does not look good at a kids show.

A great end of the show rabbit vanish is the Fastest Trick. It is a livestock vanish that looks like a Chinese table. You vanish the rabbit and walk off stage. The audience thinks it is in the table. You return and collapse the table and leave the stage for a final time.

I perform this at the end of my dove act. I change 4 doves to the rabbit and then vanish the rabbit. I know the Fastest trick is sold wholesale by D. Robbins. I should be available through most magic shops. Good Luck
