Support responsible breeders

Breeding for the bigger picture.

We believe in preserving and improving our breeds to ensure the future of the rabbit fancy. We are active exhibitors and constantly learning through regular seminars during the show season.

Higher Standards

We do not overbreed our does or wean kits early (we aim to wean at 8-9 weeks). Our minimum kit collection age is 10 weeks - no exceptions. This is for the best long term health outcomes for our rabbits. We demonstrate basic health and teeth alignment checks on collection.

Ongoing Support

All rabbits sold include ongoing support, including basic health guarantees as required by WARCI. We love to keep in touch and receive updates from our families.

Our Stock

Founded with two mini lops from Rainbird Stud in 2019, we have carefully grown to add lines from respected show rabbitries Australia-wide. All of our lines are selected for health, temperament and type. We work primarily within the agouti pattern, including butterfly (mini lop) and broken (mini rex) patterns.

FAQ

###

Q: Do you sell pairs?

A: Generally no, unless the owner is prepared for separate housing from the moment they are taken home and desexing costs for both rabbits (approx $500 for two). Sibling bonds are fake bonds that typically break shortly after going home, at which point rabbits can become vicious and a danger to each other.

Q: Is a mini lop or dwarf lop smaller?

Bred to standard, mini lops are the smallest lop breed and should weigh under 1.6kg as adults (around 1.1kg when going home) vs. the larger dwarf lop which is over 2kg as an adult. Often backyard-bred lops grow significantly over correct weight. Our lops are bred from true dwarf parents so generally stay within the weight specified by the mini lop standard.

Q: How do the mini lop and mini rex breeds differ?

Mini lops have ears that droop and a standard coat, which is low maintenance. We find them very placid and easygoing for children. The mini rex are slightly larger, have erect ears and a velvet-like plush coat which is very low maintenance. The rex are highly intelligent and interactive, but can be a bolder rabbit, better suited to an older child or adult.

Q: What do I need before bringing a rabbit home?

A secure hutch (both indoor and outdoor rabbits), a water bottle/bowl, food bowl, oaten/meadow hay, pellets, and a litter tray with paper litter (if wanting to litter train). A playpen is a good idea for secure outdoor play or indoor bonding sessions. A bag of changeover food and some hay will be provided to you to ease the transition to new food.

If housing outdoors please locate the hutch in a shady area out of prevailing winds - outdoor hutches MUST be flyscreened prior to your rabbit going home, due to the high risk of RHD and Myxo spread by mosquitoes/flies.

Q: Are bucks or does better as pets?

Bucks and does have distinctly different personalities, and while each individual can differ, we find in general bucks are very cuddly and human oriented. Does can be more standoff-ish and tend to go through significant hormonal changes at 4-6 months at which point they often require desexing to remain a friendly, relaxed pet. Some bucks develop habits such as spraying once hormones kick in at 3-4 months, which is usually resolved by desexing. If you wish to litter train you will have the most luck with desexing your pet.
