New Angora Rabbit

bun1Welcome to Jade, the newest Phoenix Farm angora rabbit.  Jade is almost two years old and is a pretty sable or black and gray color.  She came from Palermo, Maine.

Jade may be pregnant, an accidental mating with an angora/Rex cross buck, but she seems overdue to me.  She may be having a false pregnancy, very common among rabbits.  Or, her mating date may be later than supposed.  She spends a lot of time on her nest, getting ready for babies.

Jade replaces Mica, my sable doe, who passed away in March at age seven.  A very good old age for a rabbit.  In the background of the top photo is Gem, a fawn colored doe and Jade’s new pal.
