Rabbits

Diem Rabbitry


Based in Seaside, Oregon we raise quality White, Black, Blue, and Broken New Zealand rabbits for meat and show. We select does and bucks for conformation according to the ARBA standard of perfection. We place further emphasis on animals that gain weight quickly and efficiently, does that raise large litters, and animals with gentle temperaments.

OUR DOES:

SCF Bella
Broken Black Sr. Doe – DOB 2/04/16

Bella is the matriarch of the barn. Big girl with a sweet temperament, great mothering skills, and excellent width to her hindquarters, carries blue.

Diem’s Rio
White Sr. Doe – DOB 7/21/16 – 1 leg

Huge doe, height and width in her hindquarters to spare, nice mellow temperament.

Birdsong’s Blossom
Broken Black Sr. Doe- DOB 11/9/16 – 1 leg

BOB Canby 2017! Lovely type and crazy for sunflower seeds.

Diem’s Buttercup
Black Jr. Doe- DOB 7/18/17

Nice little girl out of Blossom, holding onto her to see how she grows out.

Diem’s Bee
Black Jr. Doe- DOB 7/18/17

Promising junior doe out of Blossom, got first in her class in McMinnville.

OUR BUCKS:

Birdsong’s Santolina
Black Sr. Buck- DOB 1/20/17 –  1 leg

Santolina won BOV or BOSV at almost every show he went to. Nice strong shoulders and well balanced, he’s also a blue carrier and a snuggler.

Diem’s Wilson
Black Jr. Buck- DOB 6/21/17

Wilson is a nice, mild-mannered buck out of Rio. Hoping to get him to some shows this fall.

Bonnie’s BGP10 “Grinch”

We’re still working on posing correctly… Grinch, despite the name, is super sweet and curious. 

Diem’s Buffalo Treehopper

Promising up-and-comer out of Blossom. Got a first place in his class in McMinnville and nearly got BOV. More shows for him in the future!
