Two captive rabbits from one Fayette County facility recently tested positive for Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus 2 (RHDV2), one on Aug. 9 and one on Aug. 10. RHDV2 is a virus that causes Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease (RHD). Read more➡ https://bit.ly/3T9Z4ce.

Outbreaks of the virus have been reported in domestic and wild rabbits across the U.S. At this time, the Pennsylvania Game Commission is considering what actions it might take to protect the wild hare and rabbit populations, now that RHD was discovered in the state.

Last year, the Game Commission established an RHD Management Plan, which contains strategies the agency may consider to protect the state’s wild rabbits and hares. Click here to review the plan➡ https://www.pgc.pa.gov/Wildlife/WildlifeHealth/Pages/Rabbit-Hemorrhagic-Disease.aspx.

RHD FAQs
🔸Does the virus pose any risk to human health? No. However, the public should not handle or consume wildlife that appears sick, or has died, from an unknown cause. Pets should also avoid coming in contact or consuming wildlife carcasses.

🔸How can I help? Report any hare/rabbit mortality events [two or more dead rabbits/hares at the same location, with an unknown cause of death] to the Game Commission by calling 1-833-PGC-WILD or online at https://www.pgcapps.pa.gov/WHS.

🔸As a domestic rabbit owner, who can answer my RHD-related questions? Contact your veterinarian who can then contact the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture’s Bureau of Animal Health at 717-772-2852, option 1, 24/7.

🔸How is the disease spread? From animal-to-animal in several ways, including direct animal-to-animal contact; ingestion of contaminated food or water; inhalation and more.

🔸Do infected hares and rabbits immediately die following infection? They often do, but those that do not may present with poor appetites, weakness, and blood coming from their mouths or noses.

🔸Can RHD be treated? There is no specific treatment for RHD and it is often fatal, with die-offs of local populations reaching potentially 75-100%. The virus is resilient and may remain on a landscape for months.

More information about RHD can be found online: https://www.pgc.pa.gov/Wildlife/WildlifeHealth/Pages/Rabbit-Hemorrhagic-Disease.aspx.

Here is a couple pictures of the Mini Rex program. Some of the rabbits just didn't want to work with me today but I will be updating photos as the juniors mature. I still have to grab photos of two more Mini Rex.

All Mini Rex are pedigreed. We will be focusing primarily on Tricolor.

The United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) and New Jersey Department of Agriculture (NJDA) confirmed Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus Type 2 (RHDV2) in a 1-year-old spayed female rabbit in Cape May County. RHDV2 is highly contagious and can be fatal to domestic and wild rabbits but cannot be transmitted from animals to humans. RHDV2 is a foreign animal disease caused by several virus strains.

So... I did a thing over the weekend... Lol!

Everyone meet Lucy! One of my Rex does that have been added to the rabbitry! As some know, I've been on a manhunt for nice Rex for over a year now. I came across an amazing family over the weekend who just happened to have two Rex does they were looking to rehome. I am meeting them soon for Amber, my blue tort Rex doe. Now the search begins for a nice Pedigreed Rex buck!

Excuse the photo, it doesn't do her any justice!

**UPDATE: We are beginning to compile a list of veterinarians who are approved to administer the RHDV2 vaccine. This list is voluntary and therefore not comprehensive. https://www.tn.gov/agriculture/businesses/animals/animal-health/rabbit-hemorrhagic-disease-virus-2/rhdv2-approved-vets.html

Rabbit Disease Confirmed in Tennessee

NASHVILLE – The State Veterinarian confirmed today that Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus Type 2 (RHDV2) was detected in two domesticated rabbits in one East Tennessee location. There are no other rabbits on the premises and no other confirmed cases in other counties.

“This detection is an isolated incident with no known exposure to any other rabbits, domestic or wild,” State Veterinarian Dr. Samantha Beaty said. “RHDV2 is not transmissible to humans, but it is highly infectious and fatal to domestic rabbits. We want to remind rabbit owners that practicing good biosecurity is the best defense.”

BMR's Astrid is looking for a special pet home only. This doe unfortunately can NOT be used for breeding. She would however make someone a fantastic pet or show animal. Astrid is a year old, super friend and absolutely adorable. It breaks my heart that she cannot be used in a breeding program but after 4 failed tries, 3 with severe stuck kits, it is best that she relocate to a loving pet home.

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.

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.
