Our Rabbitry

Feeding: My rabbits are free-fed on Heinold Family Formula 17%. For years we had fed Pfau with great success but due to a change in the mill Fall 2014, we began noticing some problems and switched feeds immediately. So far we like what we see from the Heinold Feeds! My rabbits also get a handful of hay and half a cup of my grain mix each day to keep them in top condition. It is important to keep some sort of roughage in a rabbit's diet as it helps to keep their digestive track regulated. I am a huge fan of Oxy-Gen products and currently use several of their products in our herd. Each rabbit also gets some sort of fruit or veggie (usually a piece of banana, carrot or apple slice) but in moderation, a few times a week. Too much can cause diarrhea and an upset tummy. I like to put a chew block in with each rabbit as it helps to keep teeth in good shape. My husband and I love our rabbits dearly and we work hard to provide them with the proper care they deserve.

Housing: My rabbits are housed in my 12 X 16 barn which is insulated with heating
 and cooling. I have a series of 3-4 hole condos (30" X 30") in which they are housed. I have about 40 cages at the moment. Because english lops are a large breed, it is very important that they have an EZ mat to sit on to give their feet a break, as larger breeds are prone to sore hocks. Cage pans are cleaned thoroughly twice a week (3 times a week in the summer months). For bedding in the cage pans, I really like Dry Den pellets. They are very absorbent, so a little goes a long way. They also reduce odor by quite a bit. Sanitation and cleanliness are our top priorities here! New rabbits are put in a different area away from my other rabbits for a week, I feel it is important to quarantine newbies just in case. 

Our Standards: At Pease & Carrots Rabbitry, we do not breed for fancy colors or record holding ear lengths. Granted, it is fun to have a variety of different colors but I will only allow a "colored" english lop into our herd if our standards are met as I am not willing to sacrifice body type. I breed for OVERALL BALANCE, healthy immune systems and easy-going temperaments. I prefer any rabbit in my herd to have at least 24" ears (again, it's about balance). I have a small rabbitry and have to be very selective. I like english lops with big bone and capacity to them. I didn't like the "race horse" look when I raised sheep, and the same applies to my rabbits. Breed character of course is very important. No visible crowns, nice shape and texture to the ears, correct structure, excellent depth and full hindquarters with that mandolin body type. Personality also plays a big factor in my selection process. My english lops just have to have that typical "happy-go-lucky" attitude about them. Their clownish personalities are one of the many reasons I love this breed so much. They are a pleasure to raise and
 spend time with.
