we have babies!


9 days old and so cute!

This week I am pleased to announce: we have French Angora babies!  I feel like I can talk about them now because they were 2 weeks old on Thursday.  (It makes me nervous to talk about kits too early since they are sometimes very fragile.)  Our French Angoras (Wooly Wilma and Reese) both gave birth 2 weeks ago.  Wilma has 5 kits and Reese has 3.  We have a variety of colors including: black, fawn, orange, blue, and tort.  I can't wait to harvest wool from these bunnies, as they are a rainbow of colors!  As of right now I don't know what I am keeping, but I think I have fallen in love with each one of them!  I will try to add weekly pictures of these babies, because the only things that grow as fast as baby chicks are rabbits.  They change so quickly and boy howdy are they cute!


  1. We had baby rabbits last fall and we fell in love also. They are so fun to watch!

  2. Thank goodness they are angoras! I at least know my limits on those and will not be tempted to keep all of them. Out of 8 babies I got 5 different colors which I am so excited about! My mind keeps flashing to all colors of yarn. :)

  3. They're adorable. We used to raise rabbits when I was a kid. Glad they're doing well. :)
