We have a selection of pedigreed SF blacks and chocolates right now. 3-4 months old, mostly does. We breed towards SOP and the betterment of the breed and show regularly to stay on track. If you want to talk about them or anything else bunny 😁, please feel free to pm us. One of our Brood does, just so we don't get lost.

We finally have some chocolates at Little Critters ❤️. Thank you Kaitlin Konnick for sharing your beautiful chocolate buck, Kenai (bred by Meara Collins)

6 kits from our white, Little Critters Jaru X Collins Kenai.

Looks like our white doe is genetically black under that white coat of hers, which is what I was hoping for ❤️

04/22/2023

I absolutely love this breed of rabbit. When they are so friendly that they beg for attention and turn into your hand for more pets 🥰❤️. This guy is beyond friendly.

Hard day of work on the Homestead today. All the rabbit cages cleaned as well as water crocks. All the rabbitry floors cleaned and shoveled as needed. All our buns got much need love, grooming, nail trimmings, and wellness checks. Caught up on all the pedigrees for the grow outs and tattoos (16 of them, whew) on all but the two youngest that aren't quite big enough yet. All in all a very productive last couple days. Now to rest and recover before work starts back up.

I posted a couple months ago about heavy silvering coming in on these kits. Here is the end result. Just wow. While their fur may be over silvered for the breed, but it is so dense and full that I love it!

LC's Jaru had her babies. She only had two whites. I was really hoping for some chocolates from her. However, I am exceedingly happy that her and her massive kit both survived the birthing. She had one normal sized, and one very large kit. The large one has bruising on its snout, skull cap, and hindquarters telling me this was a traumatic delivery for both of them. Thankful they survived. We will try again for chocolates soon 😊

They are just over 24 hours in these pics...look at the size of that one...smaller one is standard.

03/08/2023

LC's Jaru is due in 7 days 😊. She is getting her nest in order today and doing an excellent job for her first time. We don't know if she is black or blue underneath that white coat, but we do know she carries chocolate and she is bred to a lilac. She has the chance to have our farms first chocolate babies 🥰. I will post again next week and let everyone know how it goes!

This girl is going to have some serious silvering. She is just starting to show her silver, and the areas it is showing is already extremely heavy. Even where it has started on her ears is already very heavy. The final picture with my hand in the fur is an example of her Dame's fur, so she definitely gets it honestly. 😅. As long as it comes in nice and even I will be happy with it.

We have had some rough luck this breeding season. One of our Does had a litter of 6 and had complications causing her and her litter to die. Another had a litter of 5 and the cat pulled the babies through the wire, killing them. The Mom went off feed and we nearly lost her also, but she pulled through. We have had 4 litters that amounted to no kits at all. And 1 litter that had 5 kits born to a new mom, and 3 died in the first day due to mom's negligence (Other two are doing well). So I am happy to say we are finally getting some kits here.

LC's Xhinna X LC's Tazith had 3 blacks

LC's Werth X GC LC's R***r had 5 blacks and a white.

Pictured here is Werth's litter. This is our last litter from R***r before he moved to his new home in Florida. I'm really excited about them, as Werth was showing well as a Jr, and R***r has had a great showing career. He is our home grown that has been winning fur class over and over. Werth is his offspring, and also has amazing fur. Fingers crossed that this line breeding attempt has some positive results for us.

And thank you to those that have been there as my shoulder to cry on through these last few months. I appreciate each of you for your support, advice, and encouraging words.

We have some pictures featured this year 😊. Don't forget to help support GSFRB with a calendar purchase.

He has been spoken for!

I have made the huge decision to open the door for discussions about this amazing buck. He is about 1.5 years old. He has 5 legs and he places on top in fur consistently. Most recently at the GSFRB Specialty show where he placed 1st/26. He is pretty much the rabbit that won us our National Club award of 1st in fur for the 21-22 season. He is a proven breeder (quite enthusiastic about it, lol).

Please PM us if you are interested in talking about him. I would love to see his fur spread to a region that needs the help to better the breed!

Had fun at the Philadelphia Mississippi show last Saturday. Great time visiting with other breeders and had some excellent judges for our breed.

LC's Darkness got his second leg, placing 1st in jrs for show C and getting 1st place in fur. He has also got to be the most cuddly bunny ever. (Pictured below)

LC's Brekke is the huge 10 1/2 lb doe (just under 6 month) that took 1st in intermediate does for shows B And C.

LC's Werth won two more legs in shows B and C. She now has 3 legs and is growing into a beautiful girl. She just needs to earn a leg as an intermediate or senior and we will be able to get her Granded.

All three of these summer litter bunnies will be joining our breeding herd this breeding season, and I am excited to see what the next generation produces.

Congrats to Linda Townsend for taking all the titles. 3 BOBs for her absolutely gorgeous Sr buck Tale of Tails Yanish and 3 BOSs shared by her Sr does, showing her rabbitries consistency in throwing quality buns.

Had a great time at the West Georgia fall show in Carrollton last weekend. Super happy with how well our buns did! I don't know the exact number of Silver Fox there, but had to be close to 50, I will edit when I get my show reports with exact numbers.

GC LC's R***r did an amazing job on the tables. He picked up a BOB and BOS giving him his 4th and 5th legs. He also won 1st place in fur which I am ecstatic about.

LC's Darkness had his debut and picked up a 1st place leg in Jr bucks. He placed 2nd in fur behind his sire R***r.

LC's Werth earned a leg with her BOS title win. Another offspring of R***r's that is showing quality.

And this MASSIVE Jr doe that was shown as an intermediate won 1st in her class for show C. She hit 10lbs at 5 months and has an awesome b***y. She will have a very short show career as I fully expect her to surpass the maximum senior weight of 12 lbs before she is done.

Last but not least, I had a great time with all my friends! I am so happy I got to see and visit with those that could make it. You people make this hobby great with your companionship and support. I missed those of you that couldn't be there. Hope to see you at another show soon!

Also special shout out to all those that helped organizing and putting the show together. It is so much work and all done by volunteers to get setup, keep it going, and cleaning up after (not to mention all the paperwork.) Y'all are great. Big thank you to all the judges as well. You are appreciated for sure!

(Special congrats to one of our youth's Zoey. Keep it up girl!!)

Just enjoying the antics of these guys. They aren't scared at all. They almost ran into me multiple times just getting this video. Joe has had them land on him a couple times now. My goodness can they eat. We have 6 feeders and have to refill them weekly now because we have so many hummingbirds.

New arrivals yesterday. Mama's and kits are doing great. Summer litters can be risky in the South, but I have and will continue to work on heat tolerance without losing their luxurious fur traits in the process. So far so good.

LC's Xhinna X GC LC's R***r had 7 healthy kits, 5 black and two blues

LC's Lin X Still Waters Greyson had 5 healthy kits, 3 black, 1 blue, and a white. Now we know Greyson carries white as well. Hoping the white shows excellent type as it grows out.

Carrollton show was great. We had a lot of fun. Silver Fox had the 2nd most entries at 58 rabbits! Seen a lot of good friends and enjoyed the close knit community that the GSFRB club has. So thankful for this amazing group to enjoy my hobby with. Sadly, we did not bring home any title wins this time, but we had a lot of great remarks from the judges and are happy with our up and coming breeders that were shown.

Major congratulations to Zoey!! Her first show and her Jr doe too BOV for blues. I am so happy and excited for her. The look on her face said it all ❤ (a youths first time showing under her rabbitry 🥰)

Congratulations to Linda Townsend for winning RIS! She had some beautiful rabbits on the tables, one of them has joined our herd as well. A great win for her, and a great win for the whole Silver Fox breed.

(Nell had an excellent time playing with the other kids and helping with tabling buns with me. She did a great job!)

RR Brienne, our newest addition (thank you Renaissance Rabbitry ) is a major over achiever. She had 12 babies! We did lose two of them (one was stillborn or died before we got up there), but she still has 10 wiggles that she is taking good care of.

We have a beautiful nest built in our chicken feed building. I can't tell what kind of bird because she is just too fast for me. Some nice eggs though, maybe we will get to see the babies grow up 🥰

LC's Black Betty. Pedigreed Black Silver Fox doe. Dob 5/14/21. 9lbs. She carries white and has a 50% chance at carrying blue. Ashville, Alabama If you want to talk about her, please pm us.

Still pics will be posted in comments.
If anyone is looking for a pet bunny, this sweet little guy is seeking a home. He is a purebred silver fox, born in June. A pedigree will not be provided, although he is from fully pedigreed parents.

If you are seeking breeders or show stock, I have an intermediate doe available. She did pretty well at the last show (4th and 5th out of 10 and 12, if I remember correctly.) She did well in fur - she inherited her mama's beautiful coat. She is also super friendly. She will come with a pedigree and is free of DQs. Her sire and dam are both from Little Critters Homestead and she has grand champions in her lines. 💓
What a great experience we had... The animals are well taken care of ... Very clean and Joe is extremely knowledgeable and helped with all my questions... I highly recommend if you need healthy well taken care of chicken's.... You can't go wrong going there... 🐔🐓🐐🐇
