Beveren Rabbits

 

From the Livestock Conservancy, "Today’s Beveren is recognized in three color varieties: solid blue, solid black, and a blue-eyed white. The fur has a gentle rollback and the coat should be dense and glossy. Fur length is rather long at 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inches. This large breed has a pronounced mandolin shape with mature bucks at 8 to 11 pounds and does at 9 to 12 pounds. They are certainly a multi-purpose rabbit used for meat and fur. Litters are large, the young grow fairly fast, and the does are typically docile and make good mothers. The Beveren is a hardy breed that is easily reared in all wire hutches."

We currently breed the blue-eyed white and have been very impressed with the lovely personality of these cuties. Stay tuned for dress weights, litter info!

Silver Fox Rabbits

From the Livestock Conservancy, "The Silver Fox is a beautiful rabbit, which stands apart from other breeds. It was the first large breed produced that on occasion can dress out up to 65% of its live weight with exceptional individuals. Does have large litters, produce plenty of milk, are excellent mothers, and make wonderful foster mothers. Silver Fox are known for their docile and gentle nature. The young are born either solid black or blue and begin to show silvering of their fur at about 4 weeks. The silvering process takes 4 months to complete. The fur is one of the most attractive and unusual features of the breed. It is extremely dense and 1 1/2 to 2 inches in length. When the fur is stroked from tail to head, it will stand straight up until stroked in the opposite direction. This trait is found in no other breed and greatly resembles the pelt of the silver fox of the Artic."

We currently breed black and blue Silver Fox, but we are on the lookout for a lilac one to add more color to our meat flock. They are not pedigreed, but are from our original line of Silver Fox and have been bred for meat production since.
