As Of 1-11-21 The Waiting List For Bucks Is Full For 2021
If you would like to get on waiting list that is totally fine just be know that it could be a while.
How The Process Works
- Communication must be done through Email Or Facebook messenger through the business page linked here – SEND A FACEBOOK MESSAGE. I do not give my phone number out.
- I will reply to your rabbit purchase inquiries or waiting list submissions within 48 hours. If you do not respond back within 72hrs it will be assumed that you changed your mind and are no longer interested in getting a rabbit.
- After a litter is born and I know the sex of the rabbits around 3 weeks old I will email you with the rabbits that I think will be a good match for the needs you requested through your waiting list submission.
- Once you choose the rabbit you would like, a $25 non-refundable deposit must be paid within 48hrs or the rabbit will be offered to someone else.
We are currently done breeding until spring of 2021
Wanting a rabbit for a pet?
In general, bucks make the best pets. Does need bred to keep their even temperament (no jokes now😂) I have had a few does that do fine and never get fussy if not bred but that would be 20% of the time.
Many of my does doe pretty well and at the worst are a little standoffish when they are needing bred. So if you are willing to let them have some chill time then a doe will be fine.
I have heard of people having success with does after they are spayed but I do not have any experience with this.
To Get On The Waiting List
Send a message to the Facebook page and I will send you the link to get on the list. Please Do Not get on the list unless you are serious about getting a rabbit.
Do you take rabbits to re-home?
It is my responsibility to care for the animals I own well. If you are looking to re-home a rabbit you got from us I will help connect you to someone who might be interested but I do not have the space to take back a rabbit you no longer want to care for.
Do you work with transportation?
I do work with an animal transport but they must come to my home to pick up the rabbit. As of fall of 2020 airlines are not shipping animals so I can not ship french lop rabbits through airlines.
Do you sell Proven Rabbits?
Very, VERY rarely. If I have taken the time to grow a rabbit to a full year I intend to keep it.
Do you meet buyers?
Sorry no I do not meet buyers. You must pick up or arrange for transportation from my home.
As of July 2020 Airlines are not shipping animals.
Please download the guide below if you would like more info on the steps to ship a rabbit. It gives an outline of what is involved as well as the possible cost of shipping. NOT including the flight ticket.

More Info About The French Lop Rabbit
So let’s start with the obvious. The size.
First, let me share the breed Standard of Perfection. The requirement for the breed is that it weighs more than 11lbs for bucks (male) and 11.5 lbs for a doe (female) with no max weight.
With that said you will see on average 12-13 pounds for the breed occasionally up to 14lbs. If you hear someone say their French Lop weighed more then that I would be skeptical and only believe it if you weighed them yourself.
Why French Lops Might Not Be Right For You
French lops are very forgiving when it comes to learning how to handle them and not acting out if they don’t like what you are doing.
However, they are big and need to feel secure when you are holding them. So you do need to have a strong grip and be big enough to hold handle them. They do make good pets for younger children but it would be best if a parent was there to help move them around.
Also, on the whole, the breed tends to prefer to sit on the ground and be petted. They don’t love for you to be standing and holding them because of their size. It’s just not comfortable for them.
Issues They Have
There is not much that I have to complain about with this breed except they do struggle with weepy eye. While a little is normal the breed can have it get pretty bad.
The eyelashes can rub on the eye and you might have to keep them trimmed and there are some cases where eyelids (mainly in bucks) can roll in towards the eye. Unfortunately, this does not tend to show up until they are about 10 months to a year old. There are some breeders that will keep a rabbit that had great body type but has really bad eye issues. Making it hard for those who want to cut that out of their herd.
That is the only issue that I would say is common in the breed.
French Lop Personality
They are a very lazy breed once they mature and that is about 12 months old or even 14 months depending on the lines they come from.
They are VERY laid back and I think because of the size not much scares them so they rarely get stressed out. I have been bitten MAYBE 3 times in my whole career raising French Lops and the times I can think of I had it coming.
