New Zealand Rabbit Colors
Photo: 3 NZ Bucks-Big Daddy (Black), Johnny (White), Snavely Buck (Red) The New Zealand breed rabbit was created in USA. Red was the original color recognized. The White and Black varieties became recognized later. The White dominates as a color of choice for meat processors while the Black provides a dense, deep color fur. The Red also provides a deep color fur and I would consider it a "Heritage" variety of a USA rabbit breed. Photo is from the rabbitgeek files. Have a good day!
New Zealand red rabbits is a rabbit breed, which despite the name, is American in origin. New Zealand rabbits are available in three ARBA-recognized colors: white, red, and black, broken. blues are not yet showable. Its weight is 10-12 pounds. They can produce up to fifteen kits at a time. The normal amount is 7-8 kits. They make wonderful pets.
American Livestock Breeds Conservancy: Silver Rabbit
*THREATENED* The Silver rabbit is one of the most ancient breeds of domestic rabbit. Silver is a hardy breed that is a seasonal breeder (Spring and Fall). Litter size is around 3 to 6, and they can be considered only fair mothers. Silvers are active but non-aggressive rabbits, and are easily kept in all wire cages. They may, however, be better suited to being bred in free-range systems (colonies or warrens), as they were kept some two centuries ago.
