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 dwarfs.  

Based in Glasgow, 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 and blue 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.
