2012 Survey for American Blue & White rabbit is now open!

From Sept 1 to Sept 30 2012 we will accept your rabbit counts.

You do not have to be a member of any club to participate in the survey. USA and Canada is invited to send rabbit counts.

We are conducting a census of American Breed rabbits. American breed rabbits are one of the rarest breeds recognized by ARBA (American Rabbit Breeders Association).

They are rated as "THREATENED" by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, meaning a possibility of extinction.

We will conduct the census by email. If you know someone who does not get email notices, you can tell them about this count and email it in for them.

PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR COUNTS ON YAHOO GROUPS, SEND YOUR COUNTS BY PRIVATE EMAIL TO FRANCO RIOS AT francorios2000@ yahoo. com <- remove space for email

Please tell us how many WEANED American breed rabbits you have as of today.

How many Blues and how many Whites?

Different from previous counts, we are asking for counts of males and females by breed as suggested by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.

Please count rabbits that are no longer nursing from mom. A doe with a litter under her is counted as 1 female rabbit, don't count the litter.

So count the adult rabbits and any weaned juniors.

Send your count only once this year. The count is intended to be a snapshot of the population for the year.

Please tell us your count of rabbits: American Blue: Male / Female

American White: Male / Female

State/Province:

Please indicate Breeders of American Rabbits Natl Specialty Club (BARnsc) member yes/no?:

(Club membership not required for survey participation)

The final survey report will NOT include any body's name, only a state or province. This is not connected with any government program and information collected will not be sent to any such agencies.

Looking forward to your rabbit count! Please send your count by email to: francorios2000@ yahoo. com <- remove space for email
