Our New Rabbits!

Hey neighbors!

We have a new hobby!  We are now raising Netherland Dwarf rabbits.  My older two used to raise and show rabbits years ago.  Now my younger two daughters and I are trying to raise some.  I don't know if they will show at all, that is something we will decide later.



We purchased an aluminum shed to house our rabbits so they will be warm during the winter and we will have a fan to help keep them cool in the summer.  We have both hanging and stacking cages.  Dwarf rabbits take less room which is one reason why we chose them.  We have had a difficult time finding purebred dwarfs and have had to travel two hours or more to find them.



We have been working on the shed the past week and finally finished it.  Today we finally got everyone moved in and settled into place.  We will be putting name tags on each cage in the next couple of days.


Today we also named them.  We decided to stick with food names.  We have three bucks, named Marmalade, Marshmallow, and Coconut.  The does are: Nutty Bar, Brownie, Little Smokie, Oreo, Jalapeno, Vanilla, Brown Sugar and PB for Peanut Butter.  I will try to keep you all updated on how this hobby proceeds.



I have included a few pictures.  Enjoy!

I was wondering how you were going to come up with names, until I seen you decided to stick to food names.. good idea, you won't run out of names their. I think it is a nice hobby! They sure are cute.

Used to raise rabbits as a kid and showed them. Loved that, great memories. We also had an indoor bunny, which I'm sure these could be. Really would like another one.
