Thank you for putting excellent information out there.
I have had pet rabbits for years and just decided to raise some meat rabbits. I bought three Silver Marten does and one buck. The does are all sisters and have been raised together - never separated. I picked this breed because I am interested in pelts and do not want huge rabbits.
Anyhow, there is very little info on colony breeding out there so was very happy to come across your page !!!
