A group of bunnies is called a Fluffle,
And they have caused quite a kerfuffle
Rabbitat Rescue is always looking for barns that can house a Rabbitat. Rabbitats are mini-sanctuaries designed to be escape proof, visually appealing, gently interactive, sustainable and low maintenance. The barn at our farm seemed like the perfect place for an indoor space, but the outdoor space was more of a challenge with a lot of cleanup needed in the forest to build a covered shelter. It is easier to start with a colony of rabbits rather than introducing new bunnies along the way. So on a rainy day in April, we welcomed 8 beautiful rabbits to our farm sanctuary: Vanilla Bean, Misto, Java, Cuba, Starbucks, Mocha, Macchiato, and Jamaica. Never having rabbits before, we relied on our bunny volunteer Jane to teach us how to care for these fluff balls. They may be fluffy and cute, but they were not pets having come from a meat breeder.
Java is a silver/black Agouti. She likes to hang back and wait to see if there is an incentive to come out of hiding. She is one of the smaller bunnies which may be why she has been healthy from day one. And she always eats her greens.
