I am a young veterinarian raising American Chinchilla Rabbits, a heritage breed with Critical status from the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. The American Chinchilla is the rarest of the Chinchilla breeds. Its small population is largely due to the demise of the rabbit fur industry of the late 1940's. Despite the breed's fine meat producing qualities, producers of today prefer an all white rabbit for the meat market. The American Chinchilla is a large, hardy and gentle animal, with mature bucks weighing in at 9 to 11 pounds and does at 10 to 12 pounds. They produce large litters, have good mothering instincts, and fryers reach market weight quickly. At first glance the American Chinchilla is salt and peppered colored, but once the fur is blown into, four distinct bands of color will appear. I have a few litters each season, with tender fryers available fresh or frozen for local pick up. Breeding stock also available.
