Kaninchen Farm

Working to live a more sustainable lifestyle.

Welcome

Welcome to Kaninchen Farm. We are a small hobby farm in Kalamazoo, MI. We currently raise Silver Fox rabbits with a small number of French Angoras. Have a look around and feel free to use the About Us & Contact Us page to send us an email with any questions or comments you may have.
You can also keep up with the latest news on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/KaninchenFarm/
Please be sure to read our new sales policy as well. You can find it below.
January 2017 Update:
So far we've got 1 new litter from our black lines. Later this month we'll be breeding our chocolate and blue lines. While we may not breed for lilac, there's certainly a possibility of getting them.  We've also added in out of state lines, so we have fresh bloodlines to add to your stock, and of course, we can do unrelated trios.

Soon there will be more photos of the different colors, silvering, and stages of fur. 

You can view our breeders on our Silver Fox page. 

We will be selling fertile Muscovy hatching eggs and Muscovy ducklings this summer. Check out our Muscovy page for more information.

Don't forget to get a copy of our basic rabbit care sheet over in the Files section.



Highly Pathogenic Bird Flu (H5N2)

To date, our flock shows no signs of bird flu. Due to rising costs of eggs, egg rationing, and concern about a future egg/chicken shortage, we encourage all people who are able to keep a small backyard flock of their own. In war time, the government recommended 2 hens per person to keep a family supplied in eggs. We think this is a great starter number of hens. Financially, our hens have paid back the cost of their coop, run, and feed with their eggs. Please consider getting some laying hens of your own and contact us if you would like more information on raising them. 


MDARD has stopped the movement of all birds, so there will not be any birds available at swap meets, fairs, auctions, etc. The only movement of birds allowed is through private sales.

We do not sell pets. If you want a pet rabbit, please look elsewhere.
We do not ship rabbits, but may be able to let you know of any upcoming rabbit transports available.
We do not stud out our bucks for biosecurity reasons.
We do not accept checks or cards. Cash or Paypal only.
Rabbitry visits are not allowed for the safety of my rabbits and my family. Sales will take place at public locations in Kalamazoo, MI.

By purchasing a rabbit from us, you are agreeing to our sales policy and terms.

Deposit
We require a 50% non-refundable deposit on rabbits made by cash, money order, or paypal. The remaining 50% is due upon acceptance of the rabbit.

Health
All rabbits will be guaranteed healthy at the time of sale. This means that all rabbits will have passed all of their recent health checks along with their check given the day of sale. If a problem does develop, especially within the first 7 days, call or email us immediately, and not after the rabbit has died. Even if it is a couple of months down the line, call us and we will be happy to share our experience with you.

Pick Up
Cage space is limited so all rabbits must be picked up within 2 weeks of deposit unless other arrangements have been made (pick up via upcoming show, etc). If you do not pick up your rabbit after 2 weeks, the rabbit will be listed for sale again.

Transports
We occasionally do rabbit transports. If that is the case, we charge a $10 rabbit transport fee per head.

Pedigree
All rabbits sold by Kaninchen Farm will come with a 3-generation pedigree. Rabbits also come with a starter bag of our current rabbit feed for transition. Please see our Files & Links page to download a copy of our rabbit care basics sheet.
