What’s The Collective Noun For A Group Of Rabbits?

Seems there are quite a few collective nouns for rabbits. (I didn’t know that!)

Google tells me it can be: A bevy, a bury, a colony, a drove, a nest, a trace, a trip and a warren.

But a group of domestic rabbits is apparently called a herd and it would appear that’s just what we have here these days… a herd of rabbits at Oasis! – and every one of them is looking to be adopted into a new forever home.

If you’ve been considering adopting a gorgeous rabbit for a pet, one of these adorable bunnies from the Oasis Rabbit Herd may just be perfect for you:


Here’s one of the girls in the herd. Dixie was rescued from an abusive home by a kind lady and brought to Oasis. When she arrived she had sores on her feet and obviously wasn’t well cared for but now she’s doing just fine and looking for a forever home. Dixie has the most beautiful coat. Soft to the touch, almost like angora in texture, this sociable, energetic little gal is a hit in her present foster home. Less than a year old, Dixie gets along well with cats and loves to explore. We suspect that she will thrive in a busy household and would provide hours of enjoyment to everyone in her forever home.
