The Haps At The Barn

I haven't posted here much for awhile, I know . . . I'm a slacker :).

The bunnies are all doing great. This week the weather has finally cooled down and the buns have been able to enjoy cool nights and slightly warm days in the open air, without any air conditioner. That's been nice! The buns seem to enjoy it too!

Brianna's, Sara's & Nicole's babies all have their eyes open. They are getting to the very fun age! Starting to get out of the box and all.

The colors in their litters are:

Brianna's - 1 chocolate sable chinchilla, 2 chocolate chinchillas, 3 black chinchillas
Sara's - 1 dark sable, 1 pointed white, and either 1 sable or dark smoke pearl . . . having a hard time figuring that baby out!
Nicole's - 2 broken chinchillas and 1 solid chinchilla.

The pointed white in Sara's litter was a shocker! But, it was quite a fun surprise. Since Kyle is out of a sable and a pointed white, he had a 50/50 chance of either being c(chl)c or c(chl)c(h) (carrying pointed white). And he carries pointed white. Which means, he can only throw pointed whites and never any red-eyed-whites, which is very nice, as far as I'm concerned.

James, the new bun from California, is doing great. He's settled in well and he fits in here perfectly!

Kadence's babies are just weaned. And the other 3 litters will be weaned by the end of next week hopefully. I have several babies sold or on hold and just a few left available.

Jake will be going to Jennifer & Nick at Townsend's Red River Rabbitry in a couple months, hopefully. Thanks guys :)! I'm sure you'll enjoy him  . . . I know I'll probably miss him.

Cori is still available. She is a VERY nice doe, who throws gorgeous babies and is always an *excellent* mother!

Well, I think that's about it for now. I'll work on pictures of the 3 youngest litters sooner than later, Lord willing.

Kaylee's babies & for sale buns!

Kaylee's litter is 6 weeks old now and their pictures are up on the website. You can see them by clicking here :).

I am keeping two babies (a buck & a doe) out of the litter. The whole litter is very promising. Jake throws some awesome babies! Can't wait to see how his babies develop.

Also have a few bunnies available:

Hoppin’s Jake – Broken Black Pointed White Sr. Buck. (carries dilute, so can throw blue pointed whites and smoke pearls). Very nice buck and throws amazing babies! Only selling him because I’m keeping babies to replace him. Pics can be seen at  $45

Hoppin’s Cori – Black Pointed White Sr. Doe (carries dilute, so can throw blue pointed whites and smoke pearls). Very nice doe. Throws gorgeous babies, with very dark point color and super plush fur. Only keeping her because I have babies to replace her. Will be ready to go in about 2 weeks when her litter is weaned. Pics can be seen at Can be bred to buck of choice before she leaves. $75


Lilac doe, chinchilla buck and maybe a few others available out of my 7 week old litter. Will be ready to go by this coming weekend (21st/22nd) – Let me know if a baby interests you! $35-$40 each.

Pointed white bucks and does and one white doe available out of my 6 week old litter. They will be ready to go in 2 weeks. Very nicely typed babies! I would keep almost all of them if I could ;) – $35-$50 each.

Also, have two more litters that are 6 weeks old. Don’t have current pictures of them yet though. There’s 2 pointed white bucks, 1 sable steel doe, 2 chestnut agouti does, 1 chestnut agouti buck, 1 chinchilla doe and 1 chinchilla buck.

Transport available to convention. Also possible transport available from OK, through MO and into IL. The beginning of September I have transport available from OK to KS, MO, and NE.

New litters, New bunnies, lots of change :)

Well, the babies, juniors and bunnies all changed a lot when I was on vacation in California for the last week and a half. The babies all got a lot bigger. The juniors are all well into their head molts now. Scotch's head looks 10x better than before I left. I know his line is slightly slow maturing, so I'm excited to see his head starting to "pop." 

The does who are due this weekend all got their nestboxes earlier in the week. And two of the does kindled this morning actually :). Britney & Nicole.

Britney had 5 babies (1 DOA) and Nicole had 7 babies. Britney's babies are 2 days early, which is what she did last time. Nicole is just a day early, which is no biggie. Pictures of their litters can be seen on the litter page.

I haven't looked at all the colors yet, but I know there are both brokens and solids. Scotch is the sire to both of these littes, so it'll be fun to see what colors we get :).

New, updated pictures are up of Kadence's litter now and they can be seen here. Her babies are almost 7 weeks old, so they will be ready to go in about a week.

Kaylee's, Molly's & Cori's litters are 5 weeks old, so they will be ready in 2-3 weeks.

Also, while I was out in California, I picked up a pretty dark smoke pearl buck. He's from lines I work with, so that is a huge plus. He'll be a great addition to the pointed whites, as we work on getting dilute pointed whites. He's such a sweet and pretty boy, with a monster head ;)!

The buns are just barely surviving the intense, crazy hot weather we've been having the last couple weeks. I'm very thankful to have an air conditioned barn, but it doesn't keep it near as cool as I'd like it to be. It does keep it 15-20 degrees cooler, but when it's 104 outside with a heat index neat 115, it can get a bit warm in the barn. I'll be very glad when we're back down into the 90 degree temperatures.
