Many of us came over here from another site called Homesteading Today (homesteadingtoday.com)

It is a more comprehensive site covering all aspects of homesteading life.

What is a Charlie? I've seen some rabbits for sale advertised as Charlie-grade, sounds like it's not great.

a charlie is a broken rabbit with less than 10% of color on them these rabbits are mostly white and have maybe half of a mustache and their ears and sometimes a very thin stripe on their back. They can be good for a breeding program because when bred with a solid rabbit they will produce 100% brokens but no charlies, they cannot be shown though and they still make good pets. A lot of people like the look of a rabbit with charlie markings.

To expand on that, a true Charlie comes from a broken to broken breeding. You can get a "false charlie" from a solid to broken breeding, but they carry one solid and one broken gene, so if bred to a solid rabbit or another broken from a solid to broken breeding, you will (statistically) get both solid and broken kits in the litter.

Tho I've never heard it called a junior junior, there is a pre-junior in showing.
These are animals generally less than 3 months old.

VM
Vienna marked rabbit. A ribbit that is the offspring of a blue eyed white rabbit who carries the Vienna (blue eyed white) gene. Has abnormal white spotting such as being solid black except for a star on the forehead.

VC
Vienna carrier. A rabbit who looks like a solid show able rabbit but who carries the Vienna gene and can throw VM babies (or BEW babies if bred to another rabbit with the Vienna gene)

Throw = give birth to

Thanks for posting! Some people *cough me cough* didnt understand some of the terms. I kept reading about culling but no one actually said what it is.

I know this is an old thread but I just had to add.

Cull= Eliminate, either through sales or butchering of an animal from your herd.

definitions in housing--colony, hutch, hole

Post Number:#44  Unread postby Rainey » Wed Oct 22, 2014 10:31 am


I've been trying to read up on the housing options and realized that i don't understand what is meant by a hutch, a colony, or a hole. Colony I understand to mean having a group together but am I right that it can be inside or outside--does it always include ways for the buns to burrow or tunnel or dig? We have wire cages in what I call "the rabbit shed" but is hutch another word for the building in which cages are hung or placed? Or is a hutch a cage made of some combination of wood and wire? And holes don't seem to be in the ground but in a hutch or cage? Feel like I'd get more out of reading the posts on housing if I didn't feel so confused about the terms. Thanks for having this thread to help out those of us who aren't yet up to speed.

How I've always interpret it...

Hutch: A cage made of wood and wire.
Colony: Rabbits living in a communal group. Sometimes this can yes, include means for a rabbit to burrow and tunnel but mostly it means rabbits living together in a shared space. Sometimes this just means a just penned in area.
Hole: People refer to how many "holes" a carrier has...or how many "holes" in the barn...This simply means spaces for a rabbit. A 3-hole show carrier has three separate spaces for three rabbits. A 50 hole barn means you have room for 50 rabbits.
