American chinchilla rabbits

Discussion in 'Other Pets & Livestock' started by herbandteas, Oct 29, 2008.

  1. I am starting out with American Chinchilla rabbits and wanted to know if any one else has some that they are raising. I plan on breeding my doe in early spring.

    I had a pair of standard chinchillas, they were okay but i loved my hollands a lot more [​IMG] What are you going to be raising them for meat or show or both? [​IMG]
  3. I am raising them for both. The doe I am getting is a really nice rabbit.

    We were originally going to do meat rabbits, but switched to chickens after I quit my job. The biggest problem for us was finding Chinchilla rabbits that weren't related and they were all too far away for it to be cost effective.

  5. I do agree with you there. I do have a couple breeders I can go to that does not have the same lines my doe does.
  6. I got her yesterday and she is a bit shy as she left her only home she has known. I have a picture of her on my blog and will post better ones later.
