I’ve noticed a few searches from people trying to find information on how to breed bunnies in second life, so here’s what you need to know!
What do I need for my Ozimals bunny to breed?
You need a male and a female bunny, aged 4 or older. They must be eating level 2 food or above, and not in cooldown (which they go into after having a baby, or after being switched from level 1 to level 2 or above food).
Then, they have to have the right stats: they must be at 100% love, have 75% happiness or above, and 25% or higher energy. They must also be within range of each other.
If your virtual bunnies fulfill these requirements and aren’t producing a nest, it helps to bond them (under the interaction menu). You don’t need to own both rabbits, you can bond yours to a friend’s, so long as they accept the bond request. They must also be awake, on the ground (not held), and there must be at least 1 other prim on the parcel. And they must have at least 1 generation left.
You can get certain boosters from the Ozimals store to help your bunnies get these stats – the Happy Stump increases happiness for bunnies in its range, and the red bunneh drink increases energy. There are others, but these are the ones I find most helpful.

What about Ozimals bunnies pricing?
How much you can sell your nests or babies for depends on many factors – the market varies from day to day, and a bunny that’s worth 8000L one week can be worth 2500L the next.
In general, the more recessive the trait, the more desirable the bunny. A pure white Holland lop with lop ears and gem eyes can still get you 8k. Chinchilla, lynx, castor, opal, fawn, and black otters are also desirable, particularly if they’re radiant or silky, or have other uncommon features. Classic lops are currently going for around 1000 – 1600L.
At the other end of the market, a plain classic nest goes for between 150L and 300L, and you can find classic adults with 7 or 8 breeding generations left for about 200L.
Another factor influencing the market is fur retirements. Ozimals have just retired the Black Havana and Chocolate Mini Rex furs, meaning they will no longer be available in bunnies bought direct from Ozimals. This means they can only be bought from a breeder, making prices go up.
By the time you read this, these prices may be totally inaccurate. Really the only way to judge how to price your nests and rabbits is to have a look around the markets, and at group notices, and see what other people are asking. I recommend the Bunny Ranchers and Bunny Advertising Network groups – you can look through past notices to see what’s available right now. Also, the official Ozimals community forums. And these are also where you want to go to post your ads, so people know what you’ve got for sale.
