I took a trip to Canton the other day and purchased a rabbit that I am so fond of! Thanks for going with me Tu! Good to have rabbit friends. This rabbit is not only a show stopper, having a gorgeous silver coat, he is soooo sweet. We have raised many rabbits and have discovered that genetics plays a huge part in their temperament. I have one Champagne D Argent that is so frightened of us. I can barely get her out of the cage to let her exercise a bit. You would never guess that she was bottle fed as a baby! You would think she would love human contact, right? Wrong! Nature vs Nurture this would make a really cool science experiment for one of my kids to do because I don’t have time!
Back to this sweet rabbit; What should we name him? I am thinking maybe Buddy, but I am open to suggestions. While the other rabbits cower in the back of the cage he comes up to visit. He likes a little scratch behind the ear a wee rub on the forehead. Such a sweetie! Help me name him. Leave your suggestions in the comments.
I have a doe that we raised ourselves that we need help naming too. She is not as affectionate, but has a beautiful silver coat. She needs to grow into her ears a bit , but she is a teenager so there is hope. These two are destined to be a couple! I have suggestions of Lily, Nickel and Dolly. Help me name her.
These two rabbits will be one of my breeding pairs in the years to come. Meaning I can get attached to them. I will hope to sell their offspring to homesteaders, 4H members or Future Farmers of America.
Just so happens I have some rabbits for sale! Champagne D Argent breed is an old fashion meat rabbit named for the province in France where they first originated. They are pretty rare here in the States but growing in popularity. The babies start off black all over but turn a beautiful silver color as they grow. For this reason the pelts are prized along with the meat they provide. I have 3 bucks for sale; shoot me an email if you are interested. I can only sell to the Dallas area and I only sell live rabbits. I have to confess I don’t really want to eat their off spring unless I have to. I have though, eaten rabbit that is. If you are interested see how we learned to kill and process meat rabbits here. It was certainly an eye opener for all of us, teaching us to appreciate the meat we eat.
