We currently breed four breeds of rabbits.
(which Gail has the first Certificate of Development wit the
ARBA to make into a recognized breed.
(the smallest Lop eared breed and the breed Sarrah love
the most. Though Abby shows them also)
(another new breed that Sarrah is working on perfecting)
(a very ancient breed we have just begun to work with)
you will find all our rabbits on our breed
The current rabbitry
The area is 23 feet by 20 feet.
Has 2 windows and two doors (with screens).
The space is totally insulated with a concrete floor.
the walls have plastic up but will need to
have washable board added this
looking out the rear door, into the shed area,
where Jeremy kept his Mini Rex.
have banks of cages on both sides of the
floor is all concrete but will need a good layer
of sealer in the spring
rabbitry is cooled and heated by a
portable heatpump. It was very heavy and
very large when it arrived, and was a big
job to get in place but the bunnies
ran on a room air conditioner
and 6 fans till it arrived.
stopped house construction this late spring to
concentrate on the rabbitry
before the heat came.
The roof was a total mess.
entire roof was replaced over the rabbitry part
of the back of the house.
huge mess as the roof came down
wall that would become the door to the rabbitry.
The door to the mudroom of
the house is right off
to the left.
insulation to the wall and ceiling.
Electric wiring for the bank of 10 florescent
was before. . . . .
foul mess was cleaned up when we first moved in to
provide a temporary space to house the rabbits. The roof leaked
and the floor was covered in dog or
space was expanded by knocking out walls until
we have an open area that is
23 feet by 20 feet.
It took over 3 gallons
of bleach to clean the floors down to the
concrete so Gail would allow her rabbits to live in here.

It was where Armstrongs kept their show Hollands.
It was small and dark with only one small window.
wall to the left was knocked out adding the small
to the total space. The partial wall
on the other side of the "hall"
was removed as well
to create one big space.
