New Zealand White Rabbit

About This Project

Despite their name, New Zealand Whites were developed in America and are the favourite breed for meat and pelts.

The doe is fertile all year long with a gestation period of around a month. The kits are born hairless, blind and deaf, but within 3 weeks will be weaned. Litter size averages seven, but can range from one to twenty-one.

Their prolific breeding means that a trio (one buck, two does) will produce over 200 lbs of meat each year.
