The Latest News About Our Journey

We welcome anyone to pick up at our home if they are able to drive to St. Louis.

At Country Bumpkin Bunnies we are a firm believer in always being open and transparent (total "over-sharer" right here!). English Angora Rabbits is my personal passion and I strive to raise my rabbits to be the friendliest bunnies that create fond, fun memories with their forever family. I truly believe that life is about the journey and I want to savor every second of it!

It's been a while since we have written in our blog. A lot has went on here at CBB. We have a new website design, thanks to Mr. Tim Weber of goweblive.com! We are very happy with the outcome :)

We have had some loss and lots of new bunnies. We lost a couple of our nice does due to bad feed. As a result, we did a hard, fast switch back to our old feed. We wanted to try Blue Seal Show Hutch Deluxe 17 and for a few months it seemed to be working out great.  Then all of a sudden, rabbits went off feed and two died. We are now back to our trusty Nutrena Country Feeds and they seem just fine on that. It is 16% so we give treats now and then to make up for the 2% protein with BOSS (black oil sunflower seeds). Our wool production is actually over an inch of growth a month.

We have had a few other issues with some of our brood does. We lost one we think hemorrhaged and aborted her litter and another lost a litter recently. Its never easy raising animals and its never a sure thing to have healthy new littles in the nest box. Crazy things can be drug into the rabbitry and cause upsets like bad weeds in the farmers hay, as well as parasites. We treat for everything but it is not always best to medicate for no reason. Rabbits are very hearty or they are very good at hiding their illness. We take it one day at a time and do the best to intervene and nurse them back to health.

We have several litters due right now and we are updating the Bunnies for Sale page as well as the Nursery with new kits. Keep a close eye on whats to come! We will try to update more often now that we are learning the new website a little better.

Meet Our Bunny Bumpkins Team

Hi! I'm the heart behind every bunny you see on this website. I fell in love with these fluffy babies and had to have them. I socialize them and spend time with them every chance I get. Occasionally I feed and clean but I'm usually caught slacking on that part of the job and excelling at snuggling them 100% of the time.

I am the chief groomer, cleaner and feeder. I TRY to leave the snuggling to the kids although these sweet fur balls have become a quick obsession of mine. I find myself giving bunny kisses often. I take the blame for the excessive number of bunnies we own lol.

I'm the errand boy. Anything they need, I go get it. I pick up about 600 lbs of feed and a couple bales of hay every two weeks!  I'm also caught trying to train the baby bunnies to come to me right out of the nest box as soon as their eyes open (every litter). I can't resist these cute little bunnies.

I am the brains behind the genetics and planned litters. I take most of the pictures and videos and handle all the finances of the biz. My kids are infatuated with every single bunny and enjoy getting to hold the bunnies when allowed. Sometimes they even get to help water the bunnies.

at country bumpkin bunnies we adore our bunnies

'Rabbits have a subtle repertoire of body language to communicate so they don't draw attention to themselves. They use these signals to bond with their hutch mates, and the humans in their lives to say 'I love you'.
- Rosie Bescoby, animal behaviourist
