Mable's January Litter (all have found homes)
The Giant Angora Rabbit is the 2nd rarest rabbit breed in the USA. These are large wool producing rabbits that can provide 10+ ounces of ultra luscious angora wool four times per year! While some Angora varieties shed their coats and can be plucked, Giant Angoras are sheered, much like sheep. (There is some mis-information out there regarding cruelty in harvesting wool from Angora rabbits but let me assure you nothing of the sorts happens on this farm).
We currently have 4 resident rabbits on the farm. Our oldest rabbit, Hazel, is a Chestnut Agouti doe. She is our top producer and also our most adventurous bunny as it's common for her to escape her enclosure and be found free roaming within the barn. Next we have Mable, her wool is a beautiful blonde/red color when sheered. Her color is categorized as a "tortoiseshell", due to her dark points on her nose,ears, and feet. Arguably our star of the rabbitry is our chocolate buck Hershey. His head and feet are a gorgeous chocolate brown but his body is a much lighter, almost white color. Through breeding we are trying to create more chocolate giant angoras like Hershey but with a deeper chocolate body color. Last but certainly not least is Honey. She is a chocolate agouti but to the naked eye she looks more like a fawn colored bunny.
We are members of the American Rabbit Breeders Association.
Planned Breedings (If interested in a giant angora of your own please reach out to us via our "contact" page to be placed on the waiting list) *Hershey & Mable were bred in mid December and Mable gave birth to 7 babies on January 15th 2020. She had 5 black and 2 white babies (side note, this pairing also created all black and white babies last breeding). We ended up with 5 males and 2 females this litter.
*Hershey & Honey were bred in mid March resulting in a litter of 9 babies in mid April. Unfortunately the birth did not go as planned and Honey would not take care of the babies. Eight of the nine passed away and we bottle raised one male chocolate agouti baby to maturity.
*Hershey & Honey were re-bred in April as it's common for first time mothers to have trouble with their first litter, but then do fine with a 2nd litter if re-bred quickly. She gave birth to 8 healthy babies on May 22nd and has been a fantastic mother. The babies include 2 REW, 3 chocolate, and 3 chocolate agouti.
