Breeding in the 21st century
The greatest number of breeding farms can be found in the western part of France, and our rabbits keep being bred in a traditional way.
They are kept, right from the age of 2 months old, in individual hutches.
Their hutch is littered with straw to ensure warmth and comfort.
Their food is made of a mixture of barley, oats and lucerne hay. They have clean water at their disposal. They can drink up to one litre a day.
The hair of our rabbits is meticulously hand plucked every 14-15 weeks when the natural moulting time has come. Each plucking gives about 12 balls of wool.
Our rabbits can live from 6 to 8 years and have the rare privilege of being able to die of old age.
