IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!

In regards to RHDv2 being on the East Coast, I have decided that IF/WHEN RHDv2 comes within 200 miles of my barn and is confirmed, I will be on full lock down to protect my herd. That means no rabbits going in or out. I really hope it doesn't come to this. I will be installing more biosecurity now as well.

As many know, I run a very small breeding program. The health and wellbeing of my herd is my main priority. I really hope it does not continue to reside on the east coast.

PSA:

STOP. 👏BUYING. 👏 TWO. 👏WEEK. 👏OLD. 👏RABBITS. 👏

I have received more messages this past two weeks than I have in years of people complaining that their rabbits have passed away. When asking to describe what happened and how old the rabbits were, they were anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks old. This is TOO Young! It is ILLEGAL in NY to sell anything under 8 weeks of age! Do better! Stop supporting crap pet breeders who only want your money and don't care about the well being or health of the animals! If you see someone advertising newborn kits to 6 week olds, who are ready to send them home, RUN! This is just asking for problems. Find a reputable breeder! A rabbit should never leave a breeders care before they hit 8 weeks old!

Some of you may have seen the updated "For Sale" page on our website. Many have asked, "why are you no longer offering pets?" In order to avoid repeating myself over and over again, it's time I posted on here. First I want to note that those of you that have gotten pets from me, most of you have been AMAZING and I personally want to thank you for being amazing owners to rabbits produced here that did not make the cut for breeding or show programs. Without you guys, offering pets would not have lasted this long! This message is in no way, shape or form, directed at you guys, I will forever be thankful, truly and will always stand behind that if you have questions or need help, do not hesitate to ask. Sadly, I have decided to cancel offering pets due to the bad experiences I have seen since last year. I rarely offer pets but it seems like when I do lately, it has been biting me in the butt. I have seen rabbits come back extremely malnourished, neglected, dying and even those who THINK they can breed them, throw my name out there and get the prices I do out of my breeding and show stock. I am 100% aware that I cannot control what happens to a rabbit outside of my care however, when I have people blowing up my email and phone demanding I give them a pedigree on a rabbit that you produced out of pets or the lack of care, that is where I draw the line! In the last two years, I have only had maybe six good encounters and enough is enough. I have decided that there is a better option for my program at this time to ensure that "pets" no longer ever end up in another situation as previously stated. Thank you again to those who have made it a wonderful experience.

I will be having a herd reduction around March. With that being said, I will be making a list and only sending it privately. This list will include proven bucks and does, juniors, registered rabbits, etc. At this time, I will only be listing Netherland Dwarfs. I will be letting go some of my excellent mom's this year after they wean either their current litters or next litters.

We are receiving a lot of member request for our group. I just want to remind people that if you fail to answer the questions and read the rules, you will be automatically denied. All of the questions must be answered.

Often we hear or see people upset that responsible breeders won't guarantee rabbits, especially to those who are seeking certain colors, genders and type. Let me break it down for you so you can have a glimpse on what we deal with...

Most people think that we just throw two rabbits together and in 30 days, tada! Babies. Nope, this is not that simple. You know that saying, “breeding like rabbits”? Well, whoever created that saying obviously didn't breed to a specific standard. Breeding for a quality animal that also falls within the breed standard is difficult and some breeds make it even more difficult than what one can imagine. Trust me, if you think you are getting frustrated with us not guaranteeing you an animal, try breeding for a show program for yourself, talk about truly frustrating. I am going to attempt to break this down as simply as I can with each subject having its owns bullet. Are you ready? Here we go!

*Rabbits can have false pregnancies and miss! Yes, that's right! A doe doesn't always produce even with a fall off and yes, sometimes a buck isn't always successful either! Some breeders can palpate (check and see if they feel any signs of babies inside the doe) which is often done 2 weeks after breeding. If not, guess what that means? We eagerly wait 30 days and get absolutely nothing so time wasted and a complete let down. Trust me, we don't need people reminding us how badly this sucks.

*Does can kindle early or too late resulting in dead kits. Yep, you read that right. Even if our does do kindle, no guarantee for healthy and alive babies.

*Does can kindle genetic mutations. Yep, might as well say a dead kit with this. Genetic mutations often die on their own or breeders have to terminally cull them for the sake of not making them suffer. Frustrating right?!

*Does can have stuck kits! What does this mean? That the breeder gets to spend awhile trying to assist their doe in trying to pass this baby and usually results in any kit afterwards to be dead. Worse part is that the mother can pass from these complications. Nothing is a guarantee. If you fail to remove the stuck kit, this often results in an infection and a dead mother.

*Not every doe is cut out to be a mother. Some does will even die during labor or complications. If this happens, a breeder better hope that they have another doe nursing on hand that can take care of the freshly kindled babies. If not, we prepare to hand feed.

*Does can eat their young. Despite a lot of false information, this is not caused from a breeder checking or handling the kits. Often does will eat those who have an underlying issue that is health related or can even reject them. This means that often the case, does will eat and leave pieces behind for you to clean up after them. Fun right!? Yeah, no.

*Eagerly waiting for kits to mature so you can start the process of going through them. You wake up to 8 week olds and find your favorite of the litter is dead. Welcome to faders. Faders are often weak kits that can survive but are often removed from breeding programs as we want strong immune systems and healthy animals in our breeding programs.

*Finally! Juniors have made it through the fading time line (I often find them to be 8 to 10 weeks old) and your now favorite gets to go through the process of deciding if they stay or go. Upon inspection, you might find white toenails, malocclusion, white spots, etc. Congrats, your once hopeful junior is now a pet. Did I mention how frustrating?

Mentioned above is just some things that us breeders go through. We do not just throw two rabbits together. We often are studying our animals almost daily and carefully selecting which two rabbits should help out one another's faults, are compatible and have good bloodlines, but even that is never a guarantee. You can breed together two Grand Champion animals and still get crap quality. We carefully select who is bred to who for the best possible outcome. Breeding definitely isn't for the faint of heart. Breeders face a lot of frustrations, blood, sweat and tears, this isn't even including dealing with impatient buyer's. We will never sell you our best as those animals are required to help our next generation of animals.

Basically, I ask that all of those interested in purchasing or even breeding yourself, take note of what I have written. I ask that buyer's understand that responsible breeders put forth a lot of effort into our programs. We willing accept the challenges we are going to face in this hobby because we appreciate and accept our passion more. We don't do this for money, we do this because it is something we love.

We've been receiving a lot of inquiries regarding "Christmas Bunnies". This is a reminder to please read our Sales Policy prior to contacting us. Our Sales Policy clearly states we do not sell rabbits as "gifts/presents". If purchasing a rabbit, we ask that the inquirer do their research prior to committing. When we offer animals, we want them to go to either forever homes or breeding programs. We never want to see our animals thrown from home to home. Remember, pets are a commitment, if you are unwilling to commit, please reconsider adding an animal to your home.

About Us

My parents were farmers so it comes to no surprise when I say that some of us kids quickly got bit by the show bug and started showing animals in 4-H. My sister was the first to start showing; she showed sheep and rabbits. I remember going out to her rabbit barn and watching her with her French Lops, Oreo being the one I remember the most because she was an absolute terror. I remember going to Ashley's 4-H meetings and watching her leader talk to everyone and discuss projects. That woman, she was an absolute angel. She was absolutely amazing with the kids, kind, generous and full of knowledge regarding every animal and detail you needed to know. I remember when she talked, she had this charm about her that you couldn't help but adore and was completely mesmerized by her. She was absolutely fascinating. I remember begging my parents to allow me to join her group but sadly I wasn't old enough. I remember going to the 4-H grounds and watching my sister show and helped prepare. I remember the smell, the excitement, being anxious and the fair food.

After we moved to New York, our parents had us join the local 4-H. I'm sad to say it was nothing like what we were use to at all. It was all a competition to kids, it was all money and politics. My sister quickly lost interests completely in the animals and soon moved onto her new found interests. I lost complete interests in the 4-H program as well. The way people treated us, the way parents and kids alike sneered and made jokes about us because of our accents and where we came from. It was too much and all the fun out of it was lost; I missed Ms Gail more than anything then.

In 2001, I was sitting outside my grandfather's farm house; we heard several rabbits screaming down below the house at the trailer across the street, a fox had entered the pens and began killing the rabbits. Next thing I know, I seen this black booted Mini Lop come hopping up the driveway. My dad rushed over to the rabbit, checked for injuries and gave the buck to me. His name was Lucky and he was the restart to my rabbit addiction. Six months later, I added Spot, a broken black Netherland Dwarf, far from show quality. Next thing I know, I'm up to 200 holes and a full fledged breeding rabbitry; that was the start to Brittany's Funny Bunny Farm. I was already showing horses in 4-H during that time and decided to give the rabbits a whirl along with a couple cavies. The rabbitry quickly again expanded and started concentrating on show rabbits. By 2003, I had 400 holes that were occupied by mostly show rabbits, all pedigreed, including in the following breeds: American Chinchillas, American Fuzzy Lops, Californians, Dutch, Flemish Giants, Florida Whites, French Lops, Giant Chinchillas, Harlequins, Havanas, Holland Lops, Jersey Woolies, Lionheads, Mini Lops, Mini Rex, Netherland Dwarfs, New Zealands, Polish, Rex, and Tans. I also had over 40 holes of Pedigreed American Cavies.

In 2008, I joined the American Rabbit Breeders Association. For the first couple of years, I tried showing all my breeds and upgrading the quality of my herds; I quickly learned that I just had too many to concentrate on so one by one, I ended up selling out of several breeds. In 2011, I sold the last of my Tans, Californians, Lionheads and New Zealands to move my concentration to just the Holland Lops and Netherland Dwarfs. Now with just forcing my concentration on two breeds, I slowly began the climb up. I earned several legs, wins and even placed on a national level in my district. Sadly, once 2015 hit, I was forced to sell my entire herd of Netherland Dwarfs and Holland Lops and what was then my thought of the end completely of my rabbit hobby.
