Last week, we went and got three new rabbits. All our other rabbits here are Californian, and we haven’t been overly impressed with them. They don’t thrive on grass and weeds nearly as well as our previous rabbits (of New Zealand stock), and they don’t breed as well during the heat.
So, we decided to try out a breed developed at Texas A&M. The rabbit is a mixture of different breeds, developed especially to be heat tolerant, among other things. They come out all different colors and are supposedly very hardy. The mix has now been recognized as a distinct breed, called TAMUK (Texas A&M University Kingsville). We’ll see how they do.
