Angora Rabbits For Sale
The summer is here and the spring bunnies have all found new homes. Now is the time I reorganize the breeding adults I keep.
I have made it a rule that only the few select that I need for the following year can winter here. This process has served me well over time, but occasionally the choices are very hard. This is one of those summers.
I need to let two move out, and they are all so spectacular, that this will hurt. If you have been waiting for an excellent adult doe or buck to use for breeding and fiber production, I can assure you that the choices this year are phenomenal.
First, those of you who know me, know that I rarely breed or keep white rabbits. I just like the natural colors better. That said, Merrill
has been the best keep-him choice I ever made. He is sweet tempered and has made many good babies here, while providing one of the best harvests a buck has had. (I am keeping one of his black sons) He is 1 year old, 70% German. You see him above with a 2 month coat. I routinely harvest a 5" staple at 4 months from him, and close to 12 ounces. I clip everyone to the skin on July 1 so they can weather the heat, so his coat will be a little short this time.
Melody is a wonderful doe.
Here she is with a 2 month coat, after just weaning her last litter. She, too, will be clipped to the skin in 2 weeks for the summer. She is kind, a good mother, and a great fiber producer. She is 1 year old and 53% German. Her black coat is on the fine side for a German cross, but nontheless easy care and non matting. I am also keeping one of her daughters.
Alas, I cannot ship them. I am located in Hudson, NY. If you would like more info on either of these rabbits, please e-mail me from the link at the top of this page.
