I do give discounts when you purchase multiple rabbits. The more rabbits you buy, the more discount I will give I will also give discounts to fellow 4-Hers!
Yes, I show as much as I possibly can over the year. I usually attend 5-6 shows yearly. I also show pigs and horses throught the year!
I sometimes do bring rabbits to shows to sell, usually young ones that show promise in their future. Though mostly I will only bring rabbits to sell if an arangment has already been made. I will glady "drop off" rabbits at a show I am going to if you are interested.
I occasionally let other breeders use certain bucks for a breeding fee such as: A money fee, pick of the litter, etc. Please contact me for more information. ** I require that the doe be brought to my rabbitry to be bred.**
Yes, I breed during summer, spring, fall, and winter. Today's technology allows me to do this. (Fans in the summer, heat lamps in the winter)
I am continuously selling rabbits throught the year, so I don't always have a specific number of rabbits. I do, however, keep my herd to under 20 rabbits in the barn. This method allows me to breed for quality, rather than quantity.
I understand how many people feel about breeding rabbits for meat, but rabbit meat is one of the healthiest meats avaliable. In fact, rabbit meat has a lower at content than almost all other meat animals. It also has a lower cholesterol and calorie content!
1. My rabbits are handled from birth, which makes them have very promising personalities. I spend a lot of time petting and playing with my bunnies every single day to make them child-friendly.
2. I take pictures of my rabbits-though it is time consuming, many customers enjoy watching kits growing up until the day when they can come pick them up!
3. All our rabbits sold (excluding pets) come with 3 generation pedigrees. I do not write pedigrees for pets, as these are rabbits that don't meet my show standards, though still amazingly sweet rabbits. (I care for my rabbits that are sold as pets just as much as my rabbits that are sold as show quality) Instead, I came up with a birth certificate, so you still get to take home a 'paper' with your new bunny.
4. When you purchase a rabbit from me, I am always open if you have any questions or concerns about your rabbits.
5. I wait until kits are 7 to 8 weeks old before I wean them off their mothers-this gives them plenty of time to develop as they need their mothers milk. Do not buy kits that are under 8 weeks of age! If you buy a rabbit that is less than 8 weeks old, it may be more likely to develop sicknesses and diseases.
6. All of our bunnies are groomed regulary. I give each and every bunny lots of attention!
7. When you purchase a rabbit, you also go home with a bag of food, some hay, a simple care sheet, a toy or treat, and either a pedigree or a birth certificate!
8. My rabbitry is kept clean, and all trays are dumped DAILY. Cages are disinfected on a regular basis.
9. My rabbits are kept separately in 24 by 24 inch cages, by the time they are 12 weeks old.
10. All of my rabbits have unlimited fresh water, and are given pellets and hay every day.
11. I am very picky about buying quality pedigreed rabbits, only the best come to my rabbitry to show and breed.
12. Many of my rabbits produce even better than themselves when paired wtih the right buck/doe.
