This is apologies to everyone who has been trying to reach me lately. I have been swamped with trying to multi-task between my hand-dyed yarn business, taking care of family members with health issues, taking care of the bunnies, growing a garden, trip out of town, filling online fiber orders, besides my regular job so please forgive me for not answering all your calls and emails! I am hoping to have a couple babies ready sometime around the beginning of November - not many. After that we are looking at December before we have anymore. (Remember if you're wanting to get a bunny - this is not Amazon Prime service! :-) This week I had three mommies give birth and I expect a couple more soon so those will be my Christmas babies. However, it's still too soon to say exactly how many and what colors will be available. So if you're hoping for a Christmas baby, check with me in November (probably around the second week) for more info. Texts and emails are easiest for me. Thank you so much! Stay well! -Rachel
Well, I hope everyone is surviving this crazy summer! I just wanted to give everyone a quick update since I'm getting a lot of requests! There are six litters currently growing and I'm hoping to start listing some of the babies this coming week. Sounds like we may get a little respite from the heat so that will make the photo sessions a little easier! The babies are about 6 weeks old now and they can go to their new homes at 10 weeks old. If you don't get one of the first babies, don't panic! I will be adding babies over the next several weeks so just keep in touch!
The rabbitry is full of cute babies right now! Enjoy!
These are Callie's babies! Can you count how many are in here? Their eyes have just opened so they have had a couple of excursions out of the nest box in the last couple days!
This is one of Maxine's babies hamming it up!
One of Ruby's sweet babies
Velvet's babies are growing! Cute little round faces! Their eyes have opened and they have been sampling mommy's hay in the evening!
Tater just had two babies and her friend, Callie had a whopping litter of nine. Tater loves feeding babies so she offered to take care of some of the extra babies for her. Tater is exceedingly proud of them and they all have nice chubby little tummies!
Lolly is fiercely protective of her fat little spuds! She most definitely didn't want me poking around taking pictures!
These are Lena's babies wondering if they should interrupt their nap and crawl out of bed to see if I've brought them any more oats! Yumm!
Many people have contacted me about getting a bunny and then been frustrated to find out that the babies were all sold before they got a chance to choose one.
I am now offering the opportunity for folks to be put on a wait list! You will place the $50 deposit and then once the babies are 5-6 weeks old, I will be taking the baby portraits so that you can take your pick. I will be contacting you in the order that you're on the list. You will then have 72 hours to make your choice!
In the event that none of the current babies are what you want, I will roll the deposit over to the next litter.
Depending on the demand, it is not necessary to be on the wait list but it would guarantee your place in line so you don't have to worry!
Keep an eye on my blog page for more cute baby pictures!
It's been a while since I posted new baby pictures but thought you'd enjoy seeing Callie's latest beautiful litter. These photos were taken about a day before the little ones decided they were big enough to explore the world outside the box. Now they are hopping all around and mommy bunny has her paws full keeping an eye on them all!
Many of my does were having a rest this fall so I don't have as many little ones as I sometimes do. These are Cookie's little dolls. They both look like boys. Adorable, fat, and amazing coats which I think they got from their daddy, Rosco. They've just discovered the top of the nest box!
My bunnies are probably all breathing a sigh of relief that finally we can have the windows open a bit to have a fresh supply of air after the long summer being closed up in the a/c. Even though we clean twice a day, it is always a struggle to keep it smelling fresh in there with all my cute bunnies dropping stuff 24/7!
Due to the weather its been a bit difficult to take the babies out for their portraits. Got a few done hastily yesterday but we had to dodge the rain! More pictures hopefully coming soon! Thanks for your patience.
I originally got the idea to raise rabbits for fertilizer for my garden! Obviously, one thing led to another and I am now the owner of a small rabbitry. I love my bunnies and enjoy spending time with them!
