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 meat production/ good growth rate and excellent conformation. I participate in ARBA shows to help me improve my eye to better hone 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 improving 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.
Breeding stock is priced based on quality, starting at $35. 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!
Birdsong Farm Does
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 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 Maude Lebowski is one of my favorite rabbits, despite being 10 months old and having given me ZERO babies (again, thank you for your lack of sperm, Mr. Hat). She lacks depth but reminds me so much of her mother, Marionberry who was my all time favorite doe and the most excellent rabbit mother. Maude is out of a friend’s blue buck “The Dude” DOB 3/11/2017 *throws blue kits
Birdsong’s Cypress is one of my blue stepping stone rabbits. Her first litter of blues with CFR Moon will be ready mid February. Cypress has good balance but is not as deep or as wide as I would like for keeping her long term. Here’s to blue babies! DOB 3/11/2017 The Dude x CFR Juniper *throws blue kits
SCF Black Olive (SPA): 11# 4 oz. DOB 11-9-15 CFR Spotty Scotty x CFR Persimmons. A nice BIG boned doe out of Scotty and CFR Persimmons. Big doe, gorgeous chubby head. Olive has 1 leg for BOV. She is a good mother with a nice personality and passes on nice rumps and those big, chubby cheeks. *Photo taken when she was a little/young intermediate doe. She really filled out!
Birdsong’s Boysenberry (SM1A): 9# 12 oz. Nice broken black doe out of Marionberry and Scotty. Boysenberry is a step on my way to better depth with Marionberry’s width. She’s a smaller doe but has fairly good type. Legs of Grand Champion: 1. Awards: BOV, Best Opp Variety, BOB (Best of Breed) at Canby 5/21/16 Her daughter “Blossum” also took Best of Breed at Canby in 2017. SOLD
Not shown: I have several really lovely young does ready to step in and replace some of their mothers, i just haven’t gotten their glamour shot yet:
Birdsong’s Lobelia. 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. Unfortunately, she didn’t get the memo that you’re supposed to ‘feed’ your kits after kindling, so lost her full litter of 8 despite a glorious nest.
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. Unfortunately shows trumped breeding so i don’t have a litter out of her yet. Looking forward to the first babies soon!
Birdsong’s HO1A DOB 6/22/17 Mr. Hat x Olive. “Hola” is here for a litter of blue babies then on her way to a new barn. She got nice comments on the table: big and wide like her mama but could use a bit better balance. She missed her first litter but will be rebred soon.
Birdsong’s HP DOB 7/27/17 Mr. Hat x CFR Persimmons. This little does has a lot of promise and she may replace her sister Olive once she’s proven. Very nice type and balance.
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.
