Lop x Lop = ??No Lop??

Is lop-earedness (if there is such a word) a recessive gene?  I have 5 almost
year old bunnies that show no signs of their ears flopping.  Both parents were
mini-lops and their ears were down at about 6 months of age.  All of the babies
ears are fully erect, not even a little flopped.  Very weird.

Can be recessive, some just take longer.

My understanding is that lop ears are a "defect"...  they are not meant to
lop, but bunnies with lopped ears were bred and re-bred to create the lop
bunnies we now have...  so I would think that lop ears are recessive, and
lops are entirely capable of having up-eared bunnies.  But I have also seen
baby lops, and their ears stand up stright until they get long enough to
actually lop...

that...)

*snorfle*  toooo funny...

I have yet to find a rabbit marriage where the doe doesn't pick on the
buck like crazy.  Where's the sweet girls?

Enjoy the non-lop kits.  Uppy-eared rabbits are very handsome as well.
