    Today we got up at 1:30 a.m. and went to the Waverly, IA small animal swap. It was the first time that we have went to that one and I am sure glad that we did. We live North of Madison, WI so it was a nice 4 1/2 hour car ride [​IMG] Anyways, to make a long story short we ended up finding some beautiful Blue Laced Red Wyondottes and we were able to get my daughters each a bunny for 4H:

    Here's the BLRW, i'm not a good photographer and these were taken after a 4 1/2 hour car ride. The hens are just about ready to lay and the rooster is from an April Hatch

    Here are the Rabbits, I don't remember what they were called, creme something, and I guess that the person who was breeding them was #2 in the nation for them. She helped my daughter pick out the best Buck and Doe she had

    Gorgeous birds and pretty bunnies!

    Just keep in mind with the BLRW's, if you are breeding and hatching, since they are both splash, eventually you will loose all the blue color if you don't reintroduce blue or black into them.

    Thanks, I honestly didn't know that. Honestly don't know much about color genetics, but I'll make sure to look into it [​IMG]

    Rabbits look and sound like Creme D'Argents. I think that is how you spell it.
