    How cool is that, Gypsy! :yes:

    It's nice to see that Rabbits are finally making the list.

    I know that the San Diego Zoo is trying desperately to save the Pygmyrabbit, at least that's what I think the rabbit is that they're tryingto save. Hopefully they have some success. I hateto see any animals go extinct - particularly lagamorphs!

    Gypsy, don't you have some Chins? Are you breeding them?

    Why are these particular breeds endangered? Chronic health issues?

    I was just looking at the AmericanBeverens. They are a beautiful breed and larger than Ithought - 8-12 pounds. The blue color is gorgeous.Apparantly, theyhave very plush fur.

    Look at these cute babies:

    I'd love to see one in person. I'll have to check the shows in my area.

    Wow, they are gorgeous, Laura. :inlove:

    I didn't realize you were going to breed Flemish too,Gypsy. I thought you had just gotten them for pets.:)

    I'll be happy to free up some cage space for you. I'll take Chaz, Miss Lilly, and Sky Rider - Thank you Very Much!

    Yes -- same breed :) We used to raise Beverens years ago(primarily blues). They are beautiful animals. Iknew a breeder who had imported some from the UK.

    Of the other rare breeds, I also have a Silver, Belgian Hare and an American. Previously had a Silver Fox.

    I think the reason people no longer raise themis small breeds are all the rage with fanciers these days.Some of thebreeds that are very large like flemish and beverens gain weight slowerthan new zealands and proccesors want white fur.bluebird

    I'd have to look at her papers, but she is stilla junior. They are not a really large rabbit - 6- 9 1/2lbs. (larger than English Spots -- smaller than CheckeredGiants)
