a kid and new kits

A congratulations is in order! My French angora doe, Bean Blossom, just gave birth to a healthy litter of kits! We have anywhere from 7-9 little bunnies sleeping in a pile of angora wool and straw. The rabbits will be pedigreed, tattooed, and ready for spinner and hobby farm homes within the next 6 weeks. If you're interested in an Angora fiber rabbit (or apartment sheep, as I call them) from Cold Antler, let me know. Goat kids and kits... what a week.

Congratulations! Can't wait to see pictures. Bunnies are so cute anyway, and Bean Blossom is exceptionally beautiful in my opinion. New babies are always nice to have around.

Congratulations! I wish I could get one, but my parents' two untrained muts would tear it up. *sigh* maybe once my son and I finally get out own place.

Congratulations! I'd love to raise rabbits, but now is not a good time. Once I move, I'm hoping to start my own little menagerie!

i wish i lived anywhere near you; i would definitely adopt a couple angoras! our new rabbit housing is in the final stages of completion, at which point one of the big plans is the acquisition of angora rabbits for wool (we presently raise Californians & New Zealands for meat).

Jenna, Congratulations on the new arrivals! I am new to your blog and have been reading past blogs to catch up. I bought your book and told two of my friends about it and both of them are buying it, too. Hope you plan to publish again, because I love your blog and your book! Mimi

Would love one, but don't think my husband would understand my need to drive from OK to VT for a bunny! Congrats and enjoy ALL of your babies!

Jenna,
How often do you brush your bunnies? Is that something you do every day?
