I will try to post every day for the next 30 days, on this wordpress site and my website.


Lighting in a Rabbitry plays a great part in Breeding

light for rabbitsI believe that the lighting provided in a rabbitry is important for the breeding habitat of the new zealand white rabbbit. More light is very important in the winter, if you don’t have a lot of windows in your rabbitry, it is important to leave on the lights to give the rabbits, enough time in the light. This will help with breeding.

Brought Some used carrying cages

I brought some used carrying cages for rabbit shows, that I hope to go to next summer.  I brought used because I thought they would be cheaper.  They were $20.00 each.  They seem to be in good shape, I have some young show New Zealand rabbits for sale at this time, for anyone who want to visit our rabbitry, click here  Some pedigrees available for this stock.

Nestboxes for 3 does

I have given nestboxes for 3 mommies, I gave them their nestboxes early, they were carrying hay in their mouth, but I read that it is ok to wait, and give them their nest on the 27 day. I just felt since they wanted to build I would let them have their way. I will keep you posted when they kindle.

Summer Rabbits VS Winter Rabbits

Have you noticed how rabbits raised in warmer weather have longer ears, shorter coats etc. And winter rabbits have shorter ears and thicker coats.  Here is a photo of my summer rabbit (raised in my basement at 70 degrees) and my winter rabbit raised outside in a Vermont winter.
