We have a new addition to the backyard homestead…well she is currently residing in the family room. Welcome our new doe, Gracie. She is a 4 month old American Blue rabbit. Since I started researching rabbits I have wanted an American Blue. They are a heritage breed that was developed in Pasadena, California by Lewis H. Salisbury in 1917. They have been on on ARBA critical list but are making a huge comeback, largely, in-part to backyard homesteaders.
We are searching for an AB buck (who will be George) for breeding. In the meantime we may do some cross breeding with our black New Zealand. But she needs a month or two more to grow-out.
You’ll be seeing more of this beauty…hopefully by then she’ll pose a bit for us.
