About & FAQs


We are a family owned and operated small rabbitry in Northern Maryland the border with Pennsylvania – if you are coming to pick a rabbit up, it may be a long drive, but it’s very scenic!

We breed both pedigreed lionheads and holland lops and sometimes lionlops for pets.

As a mother and daughter team, we’ve developed a responsible breeding program, breeding a limited amount per year.

The mother half of the team takes care of funding of the facility as well as the website and photographing the  happenings….

half of the team works hard to make sure that all rabbits are healthy and happy.  She is also studying genetics and initially began the rabbitry for her senior capstone in the agricultural magnet school she attended.

 

 

 


We work to keep our rabbits socialized.  Newborns are handled daily from the first few days until they find their new homes.

About Colors

lionhead-rabbit-colors

We typically expect to see the following colors:

Blue-eyed white, black, black tort, blue, blue tort, sable point

Occasionally we will have:

Harlequin, magpie, chinchilla, siamese sable, blue fawn, fox, gold-tipped steel, red-eyed white

Several of our does carry the gene for marten, and we even had an otter to our surprise.

We expect to see chocolate and magpie show up in our holland lop line.

Please Note Regarding Show Colors:  We are very clear which lines contain the Vienna gene (the Vienna gene is what creates white markings and/or blue eyes in rabbits – similarly to the paint gene in horses – at this time, Vienna markings are not permitted in showing lionhead rabbits, unless they are blue eyed white – BEW).  We document the following in our pedigrees:

BEW – Blue-Eyed White  (BEWs result from breeding two VM or VCs together or breeding two BEWs)

VM – Vienna Marked – This is obvious white markings or blue eyes that can be observed

VC – Vienna Carrier – This means that in the pedigree, there are VM rabbits.  This indicates that the rabbit potentially carries the Vienna gene even if you cannot see it.  Future breeding could result in a Vienna-marked offspring.


Please feel free to ask any questions, and we will do our best to answer as quickly as possible.  You may also follow the Anomaly Rabbitry Facebook Page, for updated pictures.

We have enough animals in this world, why would you breed?  I know, I get it.  My daughter and I are quite the “rescuers” as well.  Not that we need to tell you our life stories, but how many people have spent $3,000 on an elderly rescued horse’s surgery just to make him comfortable in his last years?  Yeah, been there done that!   My daughter is the kitten foster mom of the century!  Check out her rescuing adventures here…  Erynn is one of the most giving and loving animal moms I have ever seen.  We have made sure that each and every one of her orphan kittens have wonderful homes, just like we do for our rabbits.  We are realistic and don’t make our rabbits simply live to breed.
