The Silver Fox Rabbit
The Silver Fox Rabbit is truly a multi-purposed breed whose genetic make-up has never been divulged. Today it is critically endangered with fewer than fifty annual North American registrations and there is a global population of less than 500.
The bucks can weight up to eleven pounds and does up to twelve pounds as adults. The does have large litters, produce plenty of milk and are excellent mothers. The young are born either solid black or blue and begin to show silvering of their fur at about four weeks. The silvering process takes about four months to complete. The fur is the animal's most attractive and unusual feature. It is extremely dense and 1 1/2 to 2 inches in length. When the fur is stroked from tail to head, it will stand straight up until stroked in the opposite direction. The Silver Fox rabbit has a deep loin that provides good meat proportions on the carcass. The taste of its meat is of high quality with a fine texture and taste.
