Batton's Rabbitry adds some fresh bloodlines to our rabbitry

We recently got to add a couple of new bucks to our herd bringing in some promising characteristics and hopefully adding to our show team and future breeding program.  Meet our newest boys.

Meet one of our junior bucks Duke Frederick.  He joined us from Batton Rabbitry and is already showing well.  Born on December 1, 2018 we showed him as a junior the weekend we picked him up from Tate Batton at the Stillwater, OK show.  His picture really doesn't do him justice as he is growing and developing into a nice looking buck.  A big thank you goes out to Tate for helping us add another amazing guy to our show team and future breeding program.

Meet Sir Rowland de Bois born January 2, 2019 He also comes to us from Tate as one of our future foundation herd bucks as we venture into breeding white New Zealands.  He has a prety mellow personality and while he doesn't care so much about being picked up and taken out of his hutch he enjoys the attention once you have him in your arms or on the grooming table.  Still a pre-junior when we came home from the show in Stillwater, OK; we have been watching him grow and are looking forward to getting him on the show table in May.

New Mini Rex join the rabbitry

I have to admit that I love spring time.  Because living where I am on 5 acres I get the opportunity to plant trees, and prepare and plant a vegetable garden.  But I think the best part for me this spring has been watching all the baby animals being born and grow.

We have a new litter of mini rex that has recently joined our rabbitry.  Our broken black doe Clarilla and our harlequin buck Makyis had a beautiful litter of five baby kits.  Born on April 9, 2019 we are pleased to say that they are all eating well and growing well.  We also learned that Clarilla carrying dilute and we look to have a broken blue in this litter.

My daughter Clarissa and I are looking forward to seeing how they grow and develop over the coming months.  As we also have two other litters currently in the nest box, we are really hoping that we will have some good looking show rabbits when they get bigger.  Only time will tell who is going to have the qualities we are looking for in our show rabbits.
