What does DOA mean? I've heard it a LOT and I have no clue what it means.

Thanks,

I always wondered what a Zil was...

FG - Flemmish Giant
BVNZ - Broken Variety New Zealand (I saw this somewhere...not sure if it's correct)
SCF - Sex Change Fairy
MB - Mental Bunny

I just noticed TODAY that HT's rabbit forum is no longer for profit only. While that is what I'm breeding for, I never felt comfortable with the 'stringent' policies, so I stopped posting. I was so happy to find the relaxed nature here. Huh, slow on the uptake I guess. :whistle:

:lol: you MUST have been ignoring the forum. It went ballistic for a few days. Then calmed down, and is now under Chuck's watchful eye, with a more inclusive feeling. Questions, general talk, pictures, stories, advice; all things rabbity. :D

I'm still a bit puzzled by the term broken. As I understand it a broken is any deviation from a recognized show pattern. Am I corect?

As I understand it, it is a white rabbit with patches and spots of another colour... black, blue, chestnut, red etc. The rabbit that you thought might be a checker-patterned Dutch would be an example. Maybe someone else can explain it better.

"Broken" is any rabbit with both colored and white patches--The color is broken up by white. English Spot, Checkered Giant, the rabbit in your avatar...generally they are to have between 10-60% color, and are showable in many breeds. Some breeds do not recognize them, for intance Thriantas, Havanas, Cinnamons, Chinchillas, are all breeds where broken is not an accepted color. Lops, NZ, Mini Rex are all breeds that allow both broken and solid rabbits to be shown.

Maggie and I have too much time on our hands today! she beat me again! I'm home sick, can you tell? :)

did anyone answer this?

I don't think that we do.

and yes, a self is a rabbit with a solid colour. It gets tricky when you have a solid coloured rabbit that has a white nail, or has scattered white hairs...or a white spot on the tummy that it was born with. then yeah,.. they are solid...but if you get a broken when breeding to a self...then they really are broken. :) and yeah, I know...go figure.

Actually "self" is a term that means the hair shaft is one solid color from end to tip, and is a consistant color over the rabbits whole body. Agouti is what it is called when the hair shaft is banded along its length, and gives a coat color like a wild rabbit has. A rabbit that is one solid color with no white patches is just called a solid, or more often by just the name of the color--"Do you want the broken black or the black?" or "Do you want the broken black or the solid?" either way.

Ladysown's pic just happens to be a chocolate self--meaning the chocolate color is all over the bunny, with no variation. There are chocolate tans, chocolate agoutis, chocolate otters, lots of varations of chocolate. Yummy! ;)

I hope that isn't too much explaination...

Thank goodness I don't do shows although I like going to them. It all sounds very complicated.
