    Hi, I am Julia from the UK, I am happy to have found Rabbit Talk.

    I breed Argentes in Wiltshire, black (Champagnes) and Hubert's (Agouti). I just had a litter a week ago. I like your polytunnel idea :)

    Calling all color gurus for STS, American Chinchilla, Silver, Silver Fox, Sable, Sable Chinchilla, and anyone familiar with both Es & si genes.

    I think all breeds are posed like this in Europe even if they are commercial breeds. In the beginning it was confusing as I am doing this for meat mainly, and am not really planning to show.( But I do want to breed good stock) In UK rabbits are pets and fewer people have meat rabbits. It is much...

    In Europe, as far as I know, the Great Silvers ( example; "Stor Sølv", Norwegian, I have translated direct) are breeding the different base colour under the same breed name "Great Silver" with additional mentioning of what is beneath the silvering(As far as I understand) In Norway the Agouti...

    Update on my Steel/Silvers. This is how my first generation crosses with a European Great Silver look at nearly 8 weeks. This may be of interest in this tread. I will not breed further on the steels but wil breed the Self and Agouti back to their dad to breed towards the standards of Great Silvers

    Animal For Sale Red New Zealand/Californian doe UK

    This is my 9 month old red doe and her first litter, 7 1/2 week old. She is an excellent mom and have given me 5 does and one buck. She has amazing instincts and has been doing really well with her kits. I am taking the kits away now as she is getting a bit thin. I probably will not rebreed as I...

    Leave the thread as it may help others. I breed silvers but had to deal with steel and is getting it out of my lines. It was hard finding information in the beginning.

    I am at the moment breeding in the Si3 in my herd. To get good result I need to NOT keep Steel genetic. It messes things up, but it is interesting to see how this genetics combination express. I got another 4 Steel baby's from what I thought was a black self. (She is Ese) Gorgeous kits, but I...

    I have bred Si3 gene to Es. The Steel /Es will show pretty soon on a baby rabbit but the Si3gene do not express until later in development. The silvering from the Si3 starts out in patches and spread as the animal grow. The pictures attached show Si3( from one parent) expressed on a self black...

    Best Method To Dispatch

    Hi there @RabbitDad Let me chime in from the other side, the experience of loosing your life. I have nearly died twice. First as a child. I was under water and my lungs full of water. It was full peace. I remember seeing big fish swimming around me but I know now there was no such fish in that...
