Show Quality French Lop Rabbits With The Best Temperaments Possible.
Located 35min southeast of Dayton Oh
French lops are the gentle giants of the rabbit world, while many breeders just want bigger rabbits with pretty colors for cute pets, that can leave you with animals that have undesirable qualities.
I am continually working to make my rabbits better and sticking to the American Rabbit Breeders Assosion Standard Of Perfection as closely as possible.
The French Lop rabbits that stay here in the rabbitry as future parents are only chosen if they have good confirmation and no signs of undesirable traits such as sore hocks and bad teeth.
I get it: finding the right animal breeder can feel… like a coin toss.
(maybe you have been disappointed before)
That’s why I do things differently… I want you to feel educated about the breed and know exactly what you are getting into.
I don’t believe in telling you what you want to hear but in telling you what is best for the rabbit and your sanity.
In a world where people who are NOT in the trenches raising rabbits are telling you what you should do, it can leave you with a bad-mannered animal, a chewed-up home, and losing them sooner than you should.
What French Lops Need
French lops are a great breed but they do have a few special habits that you need to know…
Honestly, these are true for any rabbit.
Calm Environment – While french lops are calm and make a good pet for younger kids because of their size they still don’t like sudden moves or loud noises… Staying calm but confident when handling them is best.
Not Carried – French lops like to sit next to you on a solid surface rather than being carried around like a baby. They are afraid of being dropped and no matter how strong you are they aren’t going to like being held while standing.
Boundaries – Like any animal, rules and boundaries are a GOOD THING. Letting them free roam whenever they choose will leave you with an ill-mannered rabbit… In fact I highly discourage it.
Other French Lop Tips
Rabbits do not need a buddy: Rabbits are not dogs, they don’t live in packs or herds. (Even the European rabbits that live in colleys have their own space to go to) You want your rabbit to be friendly with you, not another rabbit. I can not tell you how many times I hear of people having their rabbits damaged because they fought and the rabbits were severely damaged.
Keep them off the ground: Allowing your French lop rabbit to run in the yard or even dig in the dirt will trigger wild behavior. Making them ill-mannered towards you causing them to not want to be picked up, kicking and thrashing if you catch them, and even biting.
French Lop Rabbit Pricing
All French lops come with a full pedigree and are showable unless otherwise stated.
French Lop Jr Bucks – (Male rabbits under 6 months old) – $150
French Lop Jr Does – (Female rabbits under 6 months old) – $150
More often than not all of the rabbits are sold before they are born or ready to leave due to the number of people on the waiting list. Occasionally there is an extra rabbit or two made available to the public but there are hundreds of people on our email list and over 2000 followers on different social platforms so they don’t last long.
How To Get On The Waiting List
To get on the list you simply pay your deposit ahead of time through Paypal or Venmo. Please reach out via email or direct message over social.
After the deposit is paid I will send you a link to fill out a form to tell me what you are looking for in a rabbit. Sex, color, unrelated breeding pair extra…
A $75 non-refundable deposit is required to get your name on the waiting list. If for any reason I CAN NOT get you a rabbit your deposit will be fully refunded.
Your $75 counts towards the total $150 for the rabbit. The remaining $75 is due at the time of pickup for your french lop rabbit.

Wanting a French lop for a pet?
I have heard of people having success with does after they are spayed but I do not have any experience with this.
In general, bucks make the best pets. If a doe is not fixed and does not have a litter about once a year. She can get a bit grumpy due to hormones.
What you get when you buy a french lop.
- Your french lop rabbit

fRENCH LOPS THAT WERE BORN This year so far!!
Did you know french lop rabbit’s ears don’t “fall” until they are 4-5 weeks old? They start “air-plaining” around 3 weeks of age and their ears continue to fall down as they age. They should be completely down by 6-8 weeks old.

Our French Lop Rabbits In Their new Homes

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.
Do you work with transportation?
- I do work with animal transport but they must come to my home to pick up the rabbit. I can not meet a transporter on a Sunday due to them possibly being delayed. We are in church Sunday morning and evening so it’s too difficult to get them to meet in such a short window of time.
Do you meet buyers?
- Sorry no, I do not meet buyers. You must pick up or arrange for transportation or pick up the rabbit yourself.
