    I'm looking for Californian, NZ whites or standard Satin rabbits. I'm willing to drive a ways. Does anyone raise them, or know of anyone?

    are you looking for purebreds?
    must they be whites?

    we have NZ blacks and Checkered/Cal , Checkered/NZB pretty regularly.
    no pure NZW or Cals though

    We have New Zealand Whites and Californians. Lots of litters right now, from 3 to 6 weeks old. We are on the Olympic Peninsula...

    I have emailed her, but no reply yet. have you been to her place to look at them? I'm having a little luck around here, but not a whole lot. I've visited a few rabbit barns now, and it's amazing how some people raise them.
    Thanks for posting the link tho!

    No sorry I havent been down there. I grew up on a farm with 300 or so butcher rabbits at a time. Times have changed though and my mother went out of business in the early 70's. I havent been to any current growers to see how their places look, but as morals have gone down in the U.S. I am sure so have compasion for the animals, unfortunatly.
    Oh forgot... I noticed she says in spring she can get rabbits from a supplier when she is out. <--- thought I would let you know.

    I was wrong, they don't NEED to be whites. If anyone has any that isn't pure white, let me know!

    I am also looking for Californians and New Zealands.
    I am looking for up to 10 does of each from litters where the mom produces 8 or more in a litter. If anyone has any for sale 6 to 16 weeks old please let me know. I am willing to travel to pick them up, must be very healthy and I'm willing to travel anywhere in Washington or Oregon.
    Thank you.
