Cuddly bunnies for sale
We breed only high quality, purebred, friendly and affectionate French Lop and, in the past, very occasional French Lop x Continental Giant companion pets.
As we are very small-scale, non-commercial hobbyist pet owners/breeders producing only a few litters per year, we won't always have babies available for adoption but we do keep a waiting list of enquirers. So, if you're interested in welcoming one of our bunnies into your home or garden for a lifetime of love, fuss and cuddles, then please get in touch.
All of our babies are:
handled from birth
gregarious and fully-socialised as companion pets.
most will also be litter-trained to become perfect house-bunnies
used to lots of attention, handling, fuss, cuddles and pampering
We normally keep a few girls from each litter but all boys produced and any surplus girls will be available for adoption by loving pet homes
Our French Lops are companion pets and are available to to permanent and loving pet homes only.

Sorry - no babies available at present
It is currently too hot to consider breeding during this summer so we are planning litters for the autumn...
Our delightfully friendly and affectionate babies have the potential to be large (up to 6-6.5kg approx), chunky, attention-seeking companion pets who enjoy a lot of love, fuss, cuddles and nose-rubs. These are not the unsocialised and timid rabbits you see in pet shops but ultra-friendly, nosey, inquisitive and fully-socialised companion pets who have been handled from birth and reared with care and love and who will be a joy to share your lives with.
They will be litter-trained so they can live indoors as full-time free-range house bunnies and become fully-fledged members of the family, or they could happily live outdoors in a spacious hutch plus daily access to a large run or secure garden. Some ideas for suitable accommodation can be seen here.
If you would like to receive reservation details for future litters, just email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will forward reservation information by return.
About our babies...
Medical background and vaccinations: All babies will be treated with an anticoccidiostat either via ACS pellets or oral Baycox at 5 and 6 weeks to guard against coccidiosis (which can attack the liver and/or intestines) to give our babies the best possible start in life.
Care: We will provide full comprehensive care information, feeding details and ongoing support and advice for all bunnies adopted from us throughout their lives. We care deeply for our bunnies' ongoing welfare and are always here to provide support and answer any questions following their adoption.
Adoption fee: Our babies are priced at £75 each. We will also provide a voucher offering 30 days free insurance, on request. There is absolutely no 'profit' from the sale of kits and any income goes directly into their kitty as a small token contribution towards the buns' feeding and care costs. We do not breed for profit or income!
How to adopt: If you would like to adopt, please let us know your preferred choice of kits. We will require a completed Bunny Reservation Form for each kit or pair of kits reserved. This is required by Law for all live animal adoptions in the UK.
Breeding Policy: We breed only to maintain, improve and add new colours to our lines by retaining girls from litters. We usually offer most boys produced for adoption and we adopt carefully selected 'outside' bucks as studs to introduce new and complimentary gene pools and bloodlines.
If you would like to receive reservation information, just email email@example.com and we’ll forward details by return.

Or, if you are interested in adopting a cuddly pet bunny from a future litter, please complete the form below and we will keep you posted on any new arrivals (this is just an inquiry, not a reservation!).
Please note, we breed only to maintain our lines so will not always have babies available. We breed mostly between September-November and February-April and don't normally produce any litters during the hot summer months.
Adoption Fees*: Babies are priced individually when available + combined annual myxomatosis and VHD1 vaccination at cost. *This adoption fee is a contribution towards the upkeep of the bunnies and rearing youngsters. There is absolutely no profit made from the sale of our surplus babies.
Target Leaving Dates: Will be stated for each litter, subject to weaning. Should there be any delays or the babies progress at different rates, the alternative collection dates will be the following Friday or Saturday. All collection dates are subject to weaning, progress and achieving target weight. If there is any delay then we ask you to please confirm that the Friday or Saturday following the target leaving date given would also be convenient for you.
Collection: All babies must be collected personally from our home near Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire. We do not ‘ship’ bunnies either within the UK or overseas. However, if you are unable to travel, it may occasionally be possible to meet you on a weekday eg at a motorway service station within your area if you agree to reimburse our fuel costs in advance for the return trip (45p per mile).
How to Reserve: Please contact us if you are interested in adopting any of the surplus babies from one of our litters and we will forward reservation details. A £40 deposit (£41.65 if paid via PayPal) will secure your reservation. The balance is payable on collection day.
Deposits can be paid securely via Paypal using your credit or debit card and you do not need to have a PayPal account. Payment of your deposit will be deemed as acceptance of our Adoption Terms. When making your payment, please indicate which bunny you wish to reserve. A receipt will be sent immediately via PayPal and we will confirm your reservation directly with you.
