American blue X NZ cross?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby TatorFarmer » Thu Oct 06, 2016 12:32 pm


Is anyone out there crossing these two breeds?

If so, are you happy with the results, do you get a meatier rabbit?

I had a friend who made some nice hybrid meat mutts with that cross.
Body type (meatyness) was all over the place, but they grew well. It didn't really carry into the next gen though, and I think it was best as terminal cross.
