About

Bethany Chatham_Bunnies (800x800)I am based in Memphis, TN, very near to the University of Memphis. I have been breeding bunnies for over 15 years. I am currently only breeding Mini Rex, Holland Lops and English Spots but have also dabbled in other breeds over the years; during which time I have bred a variety of breeds from New Zealand to Holland Lops to Lionheads and more. All of the bunnies I breed are of the highest pet quality (Only my English Spot lines are pedigreed). I breed for both unique and beautiful coloration and also for a gentle and calm disposition. Although, some of the bunnies may be show quality, I do not personally show and will not make any assessments how they will do in show.

I start all of my bunnies on litter training and handle them daily. They are socialized around kids and other animals so that when my bunnies go out for adoption they are sweet, social, and completely ready for their new, loving home. For information about how to contact me and what you need before welcoming a bunny into your home, please check out the “Adopting a bunny” tab.

ATTENTION: Starting in August, after our current litters are sold, we will become a closed rabbitry. What this means for you guys is that we will no longer be allowing people to meet the bunnies before pickup. All of the bunnies will be super sweet so there are no worries of anyone getting a bunny they don’t click with. This ensures that the bunnies (and parents) stay safe and healthy. We will still be allowing people to come visit our foster rabbits in person.

*Rabbitry registered with the ARBA.

Update: Coming this year! I will be breeding and will have available Continental Giant babies! If you haven’t seen these yet, you really should look them up they are an incredible breed of rabbit.

Coming early 2019- I will be teaming up with Lunar Rabbitry to bring Mini Plush Lops to Memphis. Another truly amazing rabbit breed, these small, precious and hypoallergenic rabbits are the cutest things you will ever see.

  1. For some extra details in daily care you can visit the suggested reference sites on the Adoption policy page. Basically, rabbits need daily feeding, watering, and attention and need their litter changed every few days. They are relatively easy to care for. The bunnies I have are very sweet and interactive. If I am to describe their intelligence, I would have to say, certainly not as smart as a cat or dog, but a step above a guinea pig. Let me know if you have more questions. At this point I potentially have homes lined up for 1 or 2 of the rabbits which will leave me with just one until the next litter in October.

  2. As much as I would love for you to have rats, I would definitely have to say that a garage is not a good place. Not only is a garage going to be too hot but it also doesn’t have enough light and rats need to be around people not isolated.

  3. How are you, Bethany!! Sounds like your business is coming right along! Would you please remind me of the name of the mixed color pattern bunny? I can’t remember that word for the life of me!!

    Thanks, Bethany! I trust all is well with you!

  5. Hey Bethany, I am thinking of getting my son a bunny for Christmas. I want to take him somewhere to play them and make sure it is something he wants because he loves animals. The problem i am having is, there aren’t really any rescues or anything near here that i have found. I happened to run across you and was hoping you would be able to help or point me in the right direction! Lets just say the one i found that i fell in love with is all the way in Rochester, NY! haha Anything would help at this point!
    Thank you in advance!

  6. I am interested in a bunny for our family. I love the look of the Holland lops. I would be open to hearing your opinion on the most calm and friendly breed to have around kids though. Helpful hints on what we need before bringing a bunny home would be great too! Thanks!

    • Holland lops tend to be very calm and Mini rex are also very sweet. Would ya’ll be looking to keep a bunny inside or out? I actually have two precious foster girls right now. Both are fixed and one is a small fuzzy lop (needs weekly brushing and an occasional hair cut) who lives indoors and is wonderfully potty trained and the other is a larger breed lady who is about 4 years old and really sweet. She is calm and good natured but needs to live in an outdoor hutch because she tends to “mark her territory” when housed permanently indoors. I won’t have any babies available until Summer but there are quite a few fosters that come in that need homes and they tend to be already past their hormonal “teenage” age.
