8/3 Mated DA Cloudy w/FR Clyde Rabbit

This is a case of line-breeding. Cloudy is Clyde's Dam, so the kits should be a lot like Cloudy, who has 3 GC legs & is Registered. I should send in her paperwork!

7/16 Mated FR Superior w/FR Clyde

For some reason, Clyde doesn't produce kits when mated with another American Chin. He's had several litters with the other Mixed breed rabbits! Here's hoping!

6/28, Mated 7DA Cloudy w/7PR Plastik

Cloudy has 3 GC legs! I'm hoping for some very nice bunnies!

7/29 Cloudy had 2 of Plastik's kits, but they both died. :'(

4/10, Mated DA Cloudy w/7PR Plastik

DA Cloudy is a Registered American Chin with 3 Grand Champion legs. I'm hoping for some very nice kits!

5/13 Cloudy had 3 of 7PR Plastik's kits, but they all died. :'(

3/23 FR Lola had 10 of 7PR Plastik's kits

When I first counted them, I only counted 8, but I counted them again & there were 10! There are a few white ones in this litter.
The white ones were fostered to Shyenne.

6/18/10 The buck was sold to Alex & named Mohawk. The 5 left are all does.

    These are the 5 does
  • FR Flooring (F2L2) was sold to Ken in Rochester
  • FR Carpet (F2L3) was sold at the State Fair.
  • FR Hardwood (F2L4) was traded for another American Chin doe from Valerie in Washington State. They both travelec to Convention & were traded there.
  • FR Tile (F2L5) was sold at King's Auction & the proceeds donated to help them rebuild after the fire.
  • FR Laminate (F2L6) was sold to Leland in Syracuse.

2/22 Mated DA Cloudy w/FR Clyde

DA Cloudy is Registered. FR Clyde is one of her descendants. I expect these to be like Cloudy

1/22/10 FR Superior had 6 of 7PR Plastik's kits, 1 died

On 1/22/10, FR Superior had 6 of 7PR Plastik's kits, 1 died. There are 3 chins & 2 white ones. The one that died was half eaten. (Yuck!)
When one of the mixed breed rabbits had a large litter of kits the next day, I traded the chins from both litter, so they wouldn't get mixed up, & added a few of the brokens, so now they each have 7!

3/25/10 The 2 whites were sold to Laura? from Spruce Lake, NY. One was a buck & one a doe.

6/18/10 F03 was sold to Alex, he named her Rome! I named F01 Caput Mundi, & F02 Eternal City.

8/10/10 FR Caput Mundi had kits! She had gotten out of her cage, & evidently got together with one of the broken bucks that was loose!

8/17/10 FR Eternal City won Best in Show at the Herkimer County Fair Youth show. She was shown by my daughter, who helps me by feeding & caring for them.

The end of August, FR Eternal City won Best of Breed in the New York State Fair Show.

4/4/11 Both FR Eternal City & FR Caput Mundi were mated with American Chin bucks & sold to Deborah in Ilion.

Carol Franklin; Rusty Roof Rabbitry

Mostly I raise rabbits for meat, although some are sold for pets and breeding stock. The pedigreed rabbits that I raise are American Chinchillas, MiniRex and New Zealands. I've recently acquired a pair of New Zealand Reds! My family works with me to take care of the rabbits, although the children are getting older & moving out.

Although the address we give for the rabbitry is our home address, the rabbits are housed in a barn in Jordanville, Town of Stark, NY. We are members of ARBA.
