Rare Breed Rabbit Groups
Updated 06-28-11

There are rabbit breeds that are special. Developed for color,
size, or special qualities. Now they are largely ignored by the
commercial market and most breeders.

Some of them you cannot even bring to a rabbit show because their
breed category does not exist. Some were in the show and lost
their place, or they never made it to being recognized for the
rabbit shows.

These are part of the Rare Breed rabbits. They are small in number,
but each have their own special quality to them. And their numbers
could be very small indeed, maybe less than 500 rabbits in the U.S.
for some breeds.

Many of the these rabbit breeds were developed as meat and fur
rabbits, with wonderful potential for show. And there are
some yahoo discussion groups devoted to these rabbits.

Check into these groups, post a message introducing
yourself and join in the discussion.
