We raise pedigreed New Zealand rabbits in black, blue and broken. My goals are to breed healthy, show quality rabbits with calm temperaments, great mothering skills and an emphasis on both meat production/ good growth rate and excellent conformation. I participate in ARBA shows to help me hone my eye to better improve my stock so that I only contribute the very best genetics to other breeders. I have invested time and money on bringing in quality animals from the best local breeders and am happy to be a part of developing this great breed! We offer live animals for sale as breeding stock with complete pedigree. I only sell my best animals as breeding stock, so availability is limited and seasonal. I do not sell discounted ‘grade’ animals. Not every animal makes the cut to be sold as breeding stock, so we are also happy to offer delicious meat for sale to feed our community. Find meat prices here.
Breeding stock is priced based on quality, starting at $35. Most show quality animals start at $50. Discounts for 4-h youth available. Jump to the bottom of the page to view current animals for sale or email me to get on my waiting list *I update this page often, but not as quickly as rabbits reproduce! Some gorgeous blues coming up soon: stay tuned for a blog post with sale animals.
Birdsong Farm Does
SCF 99 “Amanita” DOB 5/25/17 Manuel’s BX10P x SCF Miracle. 1 leg including BOSV I just love this doe. She is so sweet and snuggly, easy going, GORGEOUS type. She passes on her perfect peak and hindquarters to her kits: yay!
Birdsong’s Fig. Out of Birdsong’s Kiwi and Esterline’s Sixty-Nine.
Really nice and supple doe. Good balance with a great rump and wonderful width. Did well on the table. *photo at 4 months
Birdsong’s Truffle. Out of Sleepy Creek Amanita x Mills 2
Truffle is one of the nicest does i’ve bred: killer type, topline and hindquarters and sweet personality. She took Amanita’s excellent type and made it just a bit better. Showed in the top 3 in her class in all four shows she participated in. Earned 1 leg: Best of Variety, McMinnville 2018 (missed out on a second leg because of a cranky bite to a crankier judge) *photo at 4 months
Birdsong’s Lobelia. “HP1D” DOB 4/12/17 Peony x Mr. Hat. Lobelia is a gorgeous little doe. Nice depth, hindquarters and balance and could just use a bit more width and overall size. Lobelia has 1 leg and 3 BOV wins.
There has been a lot of shifting of the buck cages lately. I have ‘borrowed’ several nice bucks to produce lovely litters and have brought in a few not as nice bucks to make some other litters…. it’s a process. 😉 My one best guy, Bramble has a lifetime spot in my barn though i don’t breed him every cycle. Currently in the barn is Mr. Hat (blue) and CFR Blue Moon (broken blue). I’ve gotten some nice does out of Mr. Hat but he hasn’t been producing many kits lately (foiling my plans!). Moon has a lot of color faults but a gorgeous, big boned body so careful selection of his projeny will be required. I’ve also gottten the opportunity to stud out to Bowen’s Sig and several very nice blue rabbits from Sleepy Creek Farm and will have (hopefully) my new keeper blue buck as well as some striking broken blacks soon!
Birdsong’s Bramble DOB 11/20/14 CFR Lilly x CFR Ruger Legs of Grand Champion: 3, including Best of Breed, Best Opposite of Breed and Best of Variety. 11.75 pounds. Bramble had great growth rate, dense coat and solid conformation with a gorgeous, huge head. Bramble is my best bud who loves pats and adds width and bone to his offspring.
Birdsong’s Black Currant. Out of Birdsong’s Dewberry x Seawind’s BM1.
NOT SHOWN: The best buck in my barn! Pscilocybun is out of Amanita and Bramble and is a big rock of a bunny. Gorgeous coat and a big bucky face. I just love this rabbit! Has one white toenail so was never shown 🙁
Birdsong’s Kiwi “HP2” DOB 7/27/17 Mr. Hat x CFR Persimmons. This little does has a lot of promise and is a good mother. Photographed while EXTREMELY pregnant so not much of a pose. 1 leg: BOV Canby Spring 2018 sold
Birdsong’s HO1A DOB 6/22/17 Mr. Hat x Olive. “Hola” is a HUGE rabbit that did pretty well on the table as an intermediate. I need to get her on the scale as she is GIANT. She was supposed to give me one litter then more on, but now i am not so sure…. *throws blue.
Birdsong’s Dewberry 1 is a lovely broken black doe who carries blue. DOB 1/21/2017 SCF Ashes to Ashes x Boysenberry. She threw some nicely shaped kits out of Mr. Hat this summer and showed good mothering instincts. Unfortunately she missed her next two breedings (thanks to Mr. Hat’s seemingly missing sperm count) so I haven’t gotten as many blue babies from her as i’d like! *throws blue kits
Birdsong’s Cypress DOB 3/11/2017 The Dude x CFR Juniper SOLD
SCF Black Olive (SPA): 11# 4 oz. DOB 11-9-15 CFR Spotty Scotty x CFR Persimmons. SOLD
Birdsong’s Tayberry. Out of Birdsong’s Dewberry x Seawind’s BM1. This doe did well on the table but couldn’t compete with Truffle. A bit early to rise but not pinched and has a good hindquarter. Nice depth on this doe and excellent broken pattern. * photo at 4 months
Birdsong’s Peony out of CFR Spotty Scotty and Birdsong’s Poppy. DOB 5/23/2016 10# 2oz. I am LOVING this doe – great balance of depth and width. She has 1 leg (best of Variety) and is a great mother. She was ready to breed, so no more shows (or legs) for her, sadly. Peony has thrown some gorgeous kits, including Birdsong’s Lobelia who has 3 Best of Variety awards under her belt and 1 leg.
Birdsong’s Comet “MC” is out of CFR Blue Moon and Birdsong’s Cypress. 1 leg: Best of Variety, Best Opposite Breed in Canby, May 2018.
