Satin Rabbits

The Perfect Breed for Backyard Production

We raise show-calibre Satin rabbits in black, blue, broken, chocolate, and otter. We have been raising these jewel-like rabbits for over 18 years and find them to be the perfect fit for backyard show and meat production. Satins have calm personalities, good mothering instincts, hardiness, and a beautiful and unique sheen to their fur. Unlike most of the other commercially-typed breeds, they come in a vibrant array of varieties and your nestboxes can be a rainbow of colour! Show-calibre Satins bred to the American Rabbit Breeders Association’s Standard of Perfection have medium bone and excellent feed conversion efficiency, carcass quality, and meat-to-bone ratio. With all of these qualities and a luxurious coat of fur unlike any other commercial breed, we can’t think of a better breed of rabbit to raise on our homestead.

Peek Into The Rabbitry

What’s Happening In The Rabbitry?

In the spring of 2018, southwestern British Columbia experienced a number of outbreaks of Rabbit Hemorrhagic Virus variant 2 (RHDV2). As a result, we were unable to compete in shows for most of 2018. The virus also caused us to scale back our herd and shut down our breeding program. We were able to bring things back succesfully for the 2019 show season and are very happy to have had excellent results including multiple legs, an honourable mention, a Reserve In Show, and excellent results with our entry at the 96th ARBA Convention in Reno, Nevada.
