POPPYFIELD STUD

NETHERLAND DWARF RABBITS

rare colours bred by Jacki Clark

 

Poppyfield Stud has bred Netherland Dwarf rabbits since 1996 and specialises in rare 

coloured dwarf rabbits.  Based in Glasgow and, the rabbits are exhibited  regularly in 

Scottish regional shows and National Dwarf shows in England though I've always preferred 

to spend time in the shed looking after and observing the stock.  They are line bred to 

produce sealpoints, beige and lilac tortoiseshell with the ocassional orange, using the 

non-extension colour gene needed to create these colours.  

 

Sealpoint colour needs a recessive gene, usually c (rew) to give the correct show 

colouring.  I'm selectively breeding to replace rew c with himalayan (ch) which will 

improve the colouring on the body, points and tail underside in the sealpoints.

 

I'm also creating orange mantle pattern netherland  dwarfs, now starting to work with 

the F4 generation.
