November 2021 -
We are finalizing our plans to have bunnies available this winter. At this point in time I expect bunnies to be ready to go to their forever homes in February 2022. Princess Floof and Prince Stormcloud are healthy and growing strong, and should be mature enough to try for their first litter on or around the end of this November. We want to ensure that our wool-y sweethearts are old enough to safely procreate! Gestation is about a month, and then the babes must stay with mom for six weeks. We would then keep the babies an additional two weeks to ensure that they have transitioned to solid food fully, are healthy and strong, and that they have appropriate dispositions to be introduced into homes that may have small children or other pets.
If you are interested in owning, but have never cared for an English Angora, I am more than happy to go through the basics of caring, feeding, and grooming them with you. I also am offering to buy any wool that is collected during regular grooming. I'm offering this for two reasons...
1.) I want to provide an incentive of sorts to encourage proper care.
2.) The more wool I can collect, the more I can have spun into a lovely lux yarn!
If you are still with me by this point, you may be wondering what the kits may look like. (Kits, or kittens, are what bunnies are called in the rabbitry world.) My best guess is that there will be some very pretty greys and silvery-whites for color. The chances of the kits being a solid color are close to impossible. Stormy is considered a 'solid' and Floof is considered a "Charlie" (which is a special type of "broken"). When these two pattern types are bred, it is almost given that the whole litter will be "broken". This just means that the color pattern will be broken up. An example of what the kits may look like is this:

With that being said, I have started a waiting list. Those who express an interest in acquiring one of our baby buns will get to choose on a first-come-first-served rotation.

English Angora Rabbitry
Raising and Breeding English Angora Rabbits since 2021.
English Angoras are wonderful.
These creatures do not require large living spaces. They are great with children and other pets. They are clean and quiet as well.
They also produce warm and silky wool that is great for hand spinners and DIY-ers.
