The Rabbitry

We will add more content on this page as time and work allow! Stay tuned!

Silver Fox is one of the first rabbit breeds to be developed in America as a multi-purpose rabbit for meat and fur. They are a large breed with senior does ranging from 10-12 lbs. and senior bucks around 9-11 lbs. They have an excellent meat-to-bone ratio and can have an impressive dress out weight of 65%. They are wonderful mothers (and foster moms) and usually have large litters with a good milk supply. They’re sweet-natured, gentle rabbits and are a good, docile breed for families with children. They are the only breed that has the characteristic trait of “stick up fur.” When stroked from tail to head their fur stands straight up and will only lay back down when stroked from head to tail. As their name suggests, their fur greatly resembles the silver fox of the Arctic. If we could encourage folks to start with just one animal for a homesteading project or hobby, we always say rabbits…even over chickens! We absolutely love raising these wonderful, hard-working animals! 

This picture on the left is showing a few of the colors Silver Fox can be. Starting from the top and going clockwise there are lilac, chocolate, and blue kits.
