About Silver Fox Rabbits



rnrnSilver Fox rabbits appeared around the 1920s in GreatrnBritain as a sport in a Standard Chinchilla litter. Breeding two sportsrntogether produced a litter identical to their parents. This is how it allrnstarted. Sports also appeared in litters in France and North America (where itrnis called the Silver Martin) at about the same time.

rnrnAt a commercial level, the Silver Fox is bred purely for thernfur market (rather than as a meat-producer), with all the value being placed onrnthe pelts with their glossy, dense, silky coat.

rnrnThe striking feature of this breed, with its cobby body andrnbroad head, is the silver tipped guard hairs on the chest, flanks, feet andrnrump. The higher the ticking continues up the sides the more beautiful thisrnfeature is considered. This is not a breed that you can pass by quickly and notrnbe taken in by its crisp, clean, black and white unique pattern.

rnrnBeing a medium sized rabbit, fanciers can house a Silver Foxrnin a partly wired run off the ground, giving easy access to adults andrnchildren. Wooden floors may be preferred in cooler climates. Care of this breedrnrequires some grooming during molt as the thick coat is replaced by a new one.rnFuture inconsistencies in weather patterns could increase the number of molts,rnthough they usually molt only once a year.

rnrnAn adult buck weighs around 2.48 kilograms; an adult doernaround 3.17 kilograms.
