Some information about us. Updated 4/27/2015
We are a small rabbitry located in Summerville, SC. Jersey Woolies are our only breed. Our woolies are housed in our home. I do this for several reasons. One is the breed of rabbit we have. We would hate for them to overheat in the SC sun.
Two is that we want the bunnies to be familiar with the sights and sounds of being in your home at a young age. Common household sounds such as TV, or a vacuum cleaner can be very stressful to a rabbit that is not used to hearing it.
Last but not least, is that we want to people who adopt our bunnies to look at them as house pets. NOT as a pet that can be put in the yard and forgotten.
Jersey Woolies are easy to care for. They need to be brushed out about once a week. I use a pin brush so I don't pull density of coat. Rabbits require room to move around and exercise. A correctly sized rabbit cage should allow them to hop at least 2 times to get from one side to another. Rabbits also like to stand on their back feet to look around. Please allow head room for this. They also enjoy jumping onto things.
Their accessories should include toys and a litter box. All of my rabbits have litter boxes. This makes clean up very easy. The rabbits that are in huge wire cages all have a cat sized litter box in the corner. Under the wire I use puppy wee-wee pads. I fill the front half of the litter box with hay on top of their litter. Litter boxes should be filled with unscented paper pellets, or pine pellets. You can not use a clay, or clumping cat litter. This can make them very sick. Dust is not good for rabbits. It can cause an upper respiratory infection. Rabbit safe toys can be found at your local pet store. Also you can be creative. Cardboard boxes are lots of fun. Rabbits can chew on them, hide in them, or jump on them. Toilet paper rolls with hay stuffed in them make great toss toys. You can also just give them a block of untreated wood to chew on. Pinecones also make great toys. My bunnies love to toss around toys, or eat their hide huts. : ) A happy bunny is a good bunny.
Rabbits require a quality pellet food along with fresh green hay. Rabbits only need a small amount of pellet food. The hay is most important, it's where they get their fiber. I try to switch up my hay once in a wile to give them more variety in their diet. I use mostly timothy hay, but sometimes include orchard grass, or some different type. You don't want to use alfalfa unless your rabbit is under 6 months of age. I like Oxbow food the best for pets. I use the Oxbow timothy hay and my rabbits love it. I give my bunnies a small amount of spring mix at least once a week for proper nutrition. Some of my rabbits prefer crocks to drink out of, others like a quality glass water bottle. I chose glass because they can easily go into the dishwasher to be sanitized.
Each of my bunnies will come with a pedigree, or birth certificate (pet). I will let you know if the bunny you purchase looks like a show bunny, or if he, or she would make a better pet. If for any reason you are unable to keep one of my bunnies, they can be returned to me.
