—PREFACE—
This book is published for the benefit of the members of our association and we hope you appreciate it and our efforts will not be in vain.
A book of this kind like our leading journals and newspapers cannot be made to suit all individuals for some prefer the “Sporting Page” others the “Society News” etc., but in publishing this book our object is to please the big majority of our members and believe we are successfully doing so.
We believe each member is entitled to a Look of this kind with his membership and while some information will not he of much interest to the Old Breeder we must bear in mind that we have many new members who will be benefitted by the simple instructions on breeding, care etc., and thus may be the means of starting them on the road to success.
We thank all who have given their support in the
publishing of this book as your good work is appreciated.
Very truly yours
The Officers

What We Are Doing for the Breeders
A Central Bureau of Information for the Breeders: We maintain a bureau of Information for the benefits of all interested in our industry and in this manner get many interested and started into the Breeding of Rabbits, Cavies, etc. These beginners must purchase stock and in this manner the present Breeders who have stock to sell are benefitted.
A Registration System: We maintain a Registration System whereby you can have your Rabbits registered and a correct record kept of each animal indefinitely. We also have a staff of competent Registrars scattered throughout the country to handle this important work for the Breeders.
A Staff of Expert Judges: We also maintain a staff of expert Judges of Rabbits and Cavies to judge shows so the Breeder will know his stock is judged according to our Standard of Perfection when he sends his stock where one of these Licensed Judges are officiating.
We Revise and Make Standards: We revise and make new Standards from time to time covering all breeds of Rabbits and Cavies to guide the breeders in producing thoroughbred stock and a copy is furnished Free to Each member.
Markets for Meat Rabbits: We locate markets for meat Rabbits all over the U. S. and Canada and advise many new beginners daily where they can dispose of their meat rabbits.
Markets for Cavies: We have advised many the past year where they could dispose of their Cavies and while we advise all who can to build up a local market of their own in order to secure better prices but some are unable to do this and we are glad to help out when ever possible to do so.
Market for Rabbit Skins: We have a Special Representative, Mr. Kenneth P. Button. 65 Highland Parkway, Rochester, N. Y., who will maintain a receiving station in New York City, and will accept all rabbit skins forwarded to him and secure for you the best prices obtainable for same. Write him direct.
This Up to Date Rabbit Book and Standard Free: This book is furnished you free and I believe you will admit it is well worth the membership fee. We believe in giving our members full value for their money.

MINUTES OF ANNUAL CONVENTION HELD AT COLORADA SPRINGS NOVEMBER 30th-DECEMBER 5th, 1925
The 1925 convention of the American Rabbit & Cavy Breeders association and affiliated specialty clubs held at Colorado Springs November 20 to December 5 was one of the best conventions ever held by the association in the way of constructive work being performed. One of the greatest pieces of business was the organization of a central receiving station for the raw pelts. This station will be in charge of Kenneth P. Button, Rochester, N. Y. Mr. Button is a hard worker and he expects to make this receiving station a success. To do this, however, he must have the whole-hearted support and cooperation of every breeder.
Another important piece of legislation was that of the New Zealand Federation when they discontinued their registration system and wholeheartedly endorsed the registration system of the American.
This is the first convention on record where we have had the national judges together. The judging at this convention was done by John C. Fehr, Indianapolis, Ind.; H. K. Carter, Tacoma, Wash.; Lewis Salisbury, Pasadena, Calif.; Oscar F. Schuktz, Norwalk, Conn.; Carl M. Frey, Pueblo, Colo.; Reed Storms, Welborn, Kan.; Marion Stoner, Wichita, Kan.; and Lewis S. J. Griffin, Colorado Springs, Colo.
Another point of great importance was that there were sixteen states represented by delegates as follows: Missouri 6, Iowa 1, Illinois 6, Pennsylvania 1, Washington 2, Indiana 1, California 3, Ohio 3, Connecticut 1, New York 1, Texas 1, Utah 2, Kansas 2, District of Columbia 1, Wisconsin 1, Colorado 101.
Mr. D. Monroe Green with the Biological Survey attended all the sessions and gave some helpful talks on what his department was contemplating in the way of survey and experiments on the Government experimental farm at Saratoga Springs, N. Y. We have been after government recognition for several years. The government is now taking an active interest in our industry and it is up to every one of us to help them out in their surveys and experimental work. If you should be asked to help in any of this work do so gladly as you will be helping yourself as well as the industry at large. Mr. Green left Colorado Springs in company with Secretary Weygandt for a tour of the Pacific coast investigating conditions out there and to get all the ideas he can that will be helpful in successfully carrying on their work at the experimental farm.
The Colorado Springs breeders have always had the reputation of doing things right and this year was no exception. The show room was ideal and while a little crowded for room everything went off successfully. All awards were paid before the show was over, which made quite a hit with the breeders.
Tuesday night was the big banquet served at the First Baptist church. The banquet was a wonderful stimulus for the business sessions that followed and started the week out right. The banquet was a real treat and the menu above anything ever served at any banquet before. Lewis S. J. Griffin acted as toastmaster of the interesting program that was provided.
The Colorado Springs breeders have the thanks of every breeder in attendance for the wonderful time shown them and we trust we may have the pleasure of returning to Colorado Springs some time in the future with the convention show.

First Session of Convention, American Rabbit & Cavy Breeders Association Inc., Held at Municipal Auditorium, Colorado Springs, Colo.,
2 p. m., December 1, 1925.
President De Lancey stated this was not to be a formal meeting of the convention, but was called in order to do some preliminary work necessary before the regular work of the convention was done.
The chair appointed the following members to act as resolution committee: Mr. Blair of Iowa, chairman; Mr. Foltz of Ohio, Mr. Griffin of Colorado, Mr. Salisbury of California, and Mr. K. P. Button of New York.
The chair then appointed the following members to act as a committee to count the ballots for election of officers: Messers. H. Ellis of Texas, chairman, O. Schultze of Connecticut, and M. Stoner of Kansas
Report of Committees
Committee on Standards. President De Lancey advised the present committee would stand and asked that its members, and all the judges present get together and report at the last meeting of the convention.
Mr. Monroe Green representative of the Bureau of Biological Survey. U. S. government, Washington, D. C. was then presented to the con vention by President DeLancey.
Mr. Green gave a very interesting and educational talk to the convention members. Among other things Mr. Green suggested that a pool for rabbit furs be created, so that better prices might be obtained for rabbit furs. Mr. Green stated better prices could be obtained for the fur if offered to the furriers in large quantities, say in lots of 25,000 or more at one time. He was of the opinion that the furs should be shipped to one central point, when they should be sorted and graded and offered to the furriers when a sufficient number had been collected. Mr Green also laid stress on the fact that many of the American rabbit furs are not properly dried and not properly packed when shipped. Care should be taken to have them thoroughly dry before shipping.
Mr. Hannah of California gave some enlightening ideas on how furs should be treated.
The skins should be stretched with the fur inside. The leg pockets should be turned inside out so that they could dry thoroughly. The skins should then be allowed to dry thoroughly but not in the sunlight. When thoroughly dried and fat removed, they should be packed in sawdust when they are ready for shipping.
Several prominent members from various sections of the country then spoke of rabbit conditions in their sections of the country.
Mr. Blair, chairman of the Board of Directors advised that he had received many letters from members asking that a fur board be created to take care of many matters connected with the fur end of the industry. He confessed he did not know at this time just what should be done in connection with this matter. He stated that he was of the opinion some means could be advised to take care of the matter and thought with the help and cooperation of the breeders all over the country, a matter of pooling rabbit fur could be put over big.
Various members told the convention how they managed the fur end of their business. Many of them stated they had pelts tanned and had furriers make them up into coats and jackets, and in this manner managed to realize $3.00 per pelt. Others stated they tanned the pelts
8
and sold the to individuals who themselves made them up or had the garments prepared by furriers.
There being no further business at the time, the meeting adjourned.
Second Session, 2 p. m. Wednesday, December 2.
President De Lancey officially opened the Sixth Annual Convention of the A. R. & C. B. Association, Inc.
President De Lancey asked that a minute of silence be observed in memory and respect for the late Judge Bathel of Belleville, Ill., Judge Albert Sherwood of Nyack, N. Y., and other breeders and fanciers who had died during the previous year.
We were also reminded, when transacting business at this convention, of our duty to the breeders of the entire country, and were asked to give all matters our serious attention so that only such business that would be for the greatest benefit of all our members would be transacted.
Reading of Minutes
Inasmuch as the minutes of our previous convention were published in the rabbit journals and made known to all our members the reading of same was dispensed with.

Annual Report of the American Rabbit & Cavy Breeders’ Association given at the Convention at Colorado Springs, Colorado.
December 2, 1925, by A. Weygandt, Sec’y.
This Year of 1925 a Surprise
In making my third annual report to this association, I am pleased to announce that the past year has been a record-breaker, and our association and the industry have prospered and more advancement made than any previous year since I have had charge of the office.
Changing of Name
The first important event in our association for the year of 1925 was changing the name of the association and the name was changed from the National Breeders and Fanciers Association to the American Rabbit & Cavy Breeders Association, (Inc.) and charter taken out under the laws of the state of Illinois, under the new name January 20, 1925.
Specialty Clubs Take Out Charters
The next important work was the granting of charters to the specialty clubs, The Federation of Flemish, The Chinchilla, The Checkered Giants, and New Zealand clubs having taken out charters during the first quarter, and the Havana club which organized during the past summer applied for and was granted a charter in September. All of the above clubs, I am pleased to say, are holding their annual meetings here this week and we should all attend every one of these meetings we possibly can.
9
Fight on Express Rates
The next important item in our year’s work was the effort to get reduced rates on meat rabbits, and while this has not been settled definitely, we have not given up the fight and expect to get the required amount by January 1. I have to date $265.00 for this purpose and it is up to the breeders to put this over. I fully believe we can win the fight if we can raise the required amount; otherwise I would not have solicited the donations.
Recognition by the Government
The next important matter that will go down in history of rabbitdom is recognition by the Government of our industry and the work they started through the Biological Survey and through experiments to assist the rabbit and cavy breeders of the country to make our industry more successful. We are pleased to have Mr. Green of the survey with us and he will explain the work outlined in detail at one of the meetings before the close of the convention.
Locating Markets, Etc.
Our work in assisting beginners and correspondence connected with same has more than doubled the past year and this means more coming into our association and embarking in the industry which naturally creates more of a demand for breeding stock and the present breeders are reaping the benefits.
We have continued also to locate markets for meat rabbits and Cavies for laboratory purposes and this is a great help to the beginner, especially as all the old breeders usually have markets of their own.
We have also been able to advise all inquiring, where they could dispose of their rabbit skins, but I am sorry to say prices being paid are not what they should be.
Creating a Fur Board
Mr. Blair has been working during the year to create a Fur Board in order to help the breeders on this question, and I hope a successful plan will be worked out at this convention as something should be done if possible to get the breeders better prices for their skins.
However, I am looking for better markets and whenever you have skins for sale write me and I will gladly give you the best market I have located.
The Old Debt Paid
We have paid the old printing bill contracted by our former secretary and received receipt in full from the Review Press at Crawfordsville, Ind., and thereby relieving our association of all obligations and free of debt, and this is something we all appreciate, as it shows we are on a solid basis financially, which, any association must be in order to accomplish results.
Our Membership
Our membership has nearly doubled the past year and we now have 1821 members in good standing and I trust by the end of 1926 it will be again doubled, and there is no reason why it cannot.
Our New Guide Book
I received permission from the board of directors last spring to start work on the new Guide Book, as I saw our supply of old books would be exhausted by fall.
10
I have ads, the membership list and most of the body ready for the printer but on account of new resolutions and changes in the standards it was necessary to hold the book up until after the convention. The book will be put out as soon as possible, and a copy mailed to all members in good standing, and I think you will appreciate it. Our supply of old books is exhausted.
Your Good Work Appreciated
In conclusion I wish to thank you all for your support and good work you have done for the association in various ways throughout the year. From the humblest member to the highest officer, it is your good work that has placed our association on the solid footing it is today.
The Journals Doing Good Work
The journals as usual have done their good work the past year and all should be supported by the breeders and while on the subject I am afraid many of our members do not even subscribe for a journal. If they do they fail to read them, for I receive many inquiries from secretaries of local associations asking questions about various matters connected with the American that have been published in my news items that very month.
Every rabbit and cavy breeder should subscribe for one or more of the journals and read every number and in this way you will be greatly benefitted and keep up to date on all important matters. By all means read the association news items as these are not written every month just to fill up space, but to keep you posted on the workings of the association.
1925 has been a banner year; let us make 1926 still better.

Motion made by J. C. Fehr, seconded by W. B. Garland this resolution be accepted. Carried.
Resolution No. 8. Whereas, there is at the present time several systems of registration for rabbits and Cavies in existence, some being operated by specialty clubs and still others by individuals of questionable reputation and, Whereas, wre believe that this is confusing, especially to beginners in the industry and believe also that it lessens the value of registration, now be it therefore. Resolved: That this association be recorded as favoring one system of registration which is to be maintained by the American Rabbit & Cavy Breeders Association, Inc., and urge that the necessary steps be taken to consolidate all systems as above stated Submitted by the Colorado Rabbit Meat & Fur Association L. N. Wells, Secretary.
12
Motion made by R. R. Sullivan, seconded by O. Schultze, this resolution be adopted. Carried.
Resolution No. 9 Whereas, there is at the present time no import duty on rabbit hides shipped into the U. S. in great volume from foreign countries, and, Whereas, we feel that this works a hardship on all American rabbit breeders, therefore be it Resolved, that this association go on record as favoring an import duty on rabbit hides and urge that the A. R. & C. B. Association, Inc., all specialty clubs and local associations keep this question before their members in order that when the schedule of important tariff is up for adjustment by Congress, sufficient pressure may be brought to bear to have protection on rabbit hides established. Submitted by Colorado Meat & Fur Association, L. N. Wells, Secretary.
After much discussion it was decided to take no action on this resolution.
Resolution No. 10. Whereas, the rabbit industry is fast pushing to the front due to the efforts of the officers and members of the A. R. & C.
B. Association, Inc., and whereas, one of the features which draws the attention of many thousands of persons yearly is the shows and exhibitions throughout the country, and realizing that a large part of the success of each and every such fair or exhibition depends on the judge of that individual show, and that his actions reflect on the industry as a whole, causing either wide interest or manifest disgust on the part of the audience as well as the breeders, therefore, be it Resolved by the Spokane Rabbit & Cavy Breeders Association, a chartered local of the A. R. & C. B. Association Inc., that in such cases as where a local club shall have good and sufficient reason and cause, supported by poroper affidavits stating the facts in the case, and where three or more such local clubs shall have similar complaints affecting the same judge and shall submit such affidavits to the Secretary of the A. R. & C. B. Association, Inc., that the judge concerned shall have his license revoked forever, and that the fact be given the widest publicity without undue expense, and PROVIDED FURTHER, that the three chartered locals above mentioned shall be from three distinct and separate cities, towns and villages and that the by-laws be amended accordingly. Signed, A. E. Warsinski, President, Mrs. R. S. Ulrich, Secretary, Spokane Breeders Association.
Chairman of the Board Blair, advised that the present by-laws covered cases of this kind. He stated that the case this resolution is evidently aimed at had come to his attention two years ago but that up to the present time, no signed and sworn affidavits had been furnished. He stated that when same would be furnished the proper action would be taken as it would have been, had the proper affidavits been made two years ago.
As no motion was made for adoption of this resloution, same was killed.
Resolution No. 11. Whereas, the Spokane Rabbit Breeder's Asocia-tion. being a chartered local of the A. R. & C. B. Association, Inc., is very vitally interested in seeing the rabbit industry boosted nationally and is doing what work it can as an interested local toward this end, and W’hereas, we individually and singly have encountered cases where stock purchased from cities had been falsely and deliberately misrepresented for sale purposes, such animals having been unfit for even meat purposes, and Whereas, the owners of these rabbits were and are members of other rabbit clubs and are also, as far as we are able to determine at this time members of the A. R. & C. B. Association, Inc., Therefore, we the duly elected Officers of the Spokane Rabbit Breeder’s Association, do suggest and recommend and most earnestly urge that appropriate steps be taken by the officers of the said parent Associa-
13
tion to expose such members, to bar them from membership in said parent Association or in any local rabbit club chartered by the said parent Association. W. E. Warsinske, President, Mrs. R. S. Ulrich. Secretary, Spokane Rabbit Breeder’s Association.
As this is covered by our present by-laws, no action was taken on same.
Resolution No. 12. After discussion this was referred back to the Resolution Committee.
Resolution No. 13. Resolved: That the judgeship requirements, applicant must secure the indorsement of local association, signed by President and Secretary, to the fact that they positively know applicant to be qualified to judge all breeds of rabbits. If no local association vouchers for him, ten American Association member’s signatures must be secured vouching for applicant’s qualifications. Besides requirements No. 1, applicant must furnish names of last five shows he has judged, also names of Secretaries of said five shows, this information to be furnished, A. R. & C. B. Association, Secretary, K. H. Carter.
No motion was made upon this motion so same was automatically defeated.
Resolution No. 14. Referred back to Resolution Committee to be brought up later.
Resolution No. 15. Resolved: That a judge shall not look in the ears of a rabbit until after he has placed the rabbit and that the show steward should loo kfor ear canker when the rabbit is cooped into the show. Submitted by Chas. Weirwick.
As no action was taken upon this matter in the form of a motion, same was automatically killed.
Resolution No. 16. Resolved: That the A. R. & C. B. Association, Inc., make it an order that no entries be accepted after dates closed for entries. This is an order to give the show secretary a chance to get his show lined up as it should be. Submitted by Chas. Weirwick.
Motion made by Chas. Garland, seconded by J. C. Fehr that same be adopted. Motion was defeated.
Resolution No. 17. Resolved: That all standards as adopted at this Convention shall remain in force for three years without change. Submitted by H. C. Foltz.

Instructions to Registrars
Many requests are received wanting to know the requirements or qualifications of one to be granted a Registrar’s licenses and whether or not registrars are wanted.
Registrars are wanted at all times but to qualify for this work one should be familiar with the Standard requirements of all breeds and all disqualifications for no animal that is disqualified can be given a Registration certificate. The following rules should be followed closely by Registrars as we wish to keep the Registration system on a sound basis so that when an animal is given a certificate it presents the true value of the individual it covers.
1— A uniform rate of One Dollar ($1.00) per head will be charged
on all rabbits, and fifty cents ($ .50) per head on all cavies registered.
2— Tattoo number as shown on Registration blank in right ear show-
ing the letter “A” or “B” after all numbers regardless of class, as this is only used to denote the series of registrations.
3— There are no classes provided for in Registrations of rabbits or
cavies.
4— No rabbit not up to required weight should be given a certificate
but can be later on when up to required weight, provided they are otherwise qualified for registration.
5— All cavies to be registered at a charge of Fifty cents ($.50) each.
6— The registration application books containing Ten (10) dupli-
cate applications are sold to Registrar at Five Dollars ($5.00) each, for rabbits, and Two Dollars and Fifty Cents ($2.50) each for Cavies.
7— The Registrars should keep these duplicates so in case original
application is lost in mailing, he can furnish record for duplicate.
8— Animals whose sires and dams were not registered can be regis-
tered providing registrar finds them free from all disqualifications and possess quality sufficient to make them worthy of being regis-tered.
9— Never register an animal if disqualified in any section regardless
of quality in others.
10— Write out your applications plainly as a certificate is worthies*
unless correct and if names are not written distinctly, the party writing up the certificate cannot always “guess” correctly.
11— Mail applications in as soon as made out and do not hold in your
possession as this prevents me from keeping my records up to date.
12— Transfer of Ownership. Should an animal be sold that has been
registered the seller should mail Registration Certificate to buyer and request application for Transfer of Ownership blank to. the National office and fill out and mail in with fee of 25 cents. Cer-tificate of Transfer will then be issued and mailed to purchaser.
13— Rabbitry Registrations. Application should be mailed to Nation-
al Association giving name, owner, varieties, breed, etc., enclosing the regular fee of One Dollar ($1.00) and certificates for this purpose will be issued. One private trade mark to be included in such Registration but no more. Only members of the association allowed to register the names of their Rabbitry and same automatically expires at expiration of membership.
14— Registrars are requested to examine each animal carefully before
making out application for registration papers and see that no
30
disqualified animal is given a certificate; also that no animal under weight should be given a registration, but either can be registered Junior be given this registration, but either can be transferred later providing they come up to the requirements. In registering an animal first go over specimen carefully and look for disqualifications, then if free from any animal can be registered, USING GOOD JUDGMENT at all times.

The National Registration System
By A. WEYGANDT, Secretary
The Registration System as adopted by the American Rabbit and Cavy Breeders Association, Inc., is one of the oldest in existance today devoted to the Registration of Rabbits.
Records of all registrations since the system was inaugurated are well preserved and carefully filed so that they can be referred to within a few minutes notice.
This means much to the careful breeders who may want information regarding a certain animal registered through this Association.
All that is required is to furnish the tattoo number in animal’s ear and papers covering can be easily located.
Kennel Clubs and others have started registering rabbits from time to time and breeders writing in to this Association for records of these registrations are disappointed as we have no record of them and know nothing as to where they originated.
We, therefore, request that all breeders having stock to register will see that they are registered in The American Rabbit and Cavy Breeders Association, then later on should the animal be sold and papers become lost, the owner knows a copy of certificate showing breeding is located safely in the Association’s files and by writing to the Secretary a copy can be furnished at once. For this reason we request our members and others to register their stock with the American Rabbit and Cavy Breeders Association, Inc so as to have the records of all registered animal kept in one office permanently, and not scattered all over the country with Kennel Clubs and other Associations.
Another object in having your animals registered with the American Rabbit and Cavy Association, Inc. As soon as possible we hope to have our Registration System on such a sound basis and established so thoroughly among the breeders throughout the country that no animal can be registered unless its parents are registered with the National Association, and this will be a great step toward a perfect registration system, and no doubt this would be the ruling now, we wish to give all a chance to have their breeding stock registered before putting this into effect.
Of course, this system could not be put in effect unless all the animals were registered in the American Rabbit and Cavy Breders As-sociation, Inc., as the papers of the parent of every animal registered 7 would have to be located in our files, and examined before certificate was issued. So please bear this in mind and have your rabbits registered with , the American Rabbit and Cavy Breeders Association, Inc.
Many new members write in asking what steps should be taken to have animals registered, cost, etc.
An animal to be registered must be examined by one of our Licensed Registrars (see list of Registrars) and passed as to quality for no disqualified animal can be registered.
The application for registration contains a number. This number is then tattooed in the animal’s right ear and remains there per-manently.
The application is then filled out and mailed to the Secretary of the American Rabbit and Cavy Breeders Association, Inc, who issues a certificate of registration in duplicate containing the same number tattooed in the animal’s ear.
The original certificate is then mailed to the owner and the duplicate is filed in the American Rabbit and Cavy Breeders Association, Inc., Stud Book, and kept for future reference.
Should the holder of this certificate sell the animal he should write in to the Secretary of the American Rabbit and Cavy Breeders’ Associa-
32
tion, Inc., for an application for transfer of ownership. After receiving this application, fill out and mail to the Secretary with the usual fee of 25 cents, and certificate of transfer will be mailed to the party to whom animal was sold and records made accordingly, showing the transaction made in the Association Stud Book.
It is well worth One Dollar, the price of registration, to have your stock examined by licensed registrar to see that same is free from disqualifications, and to learn it is eligible to be registered. And besides you have a permanent mark of identification in the animal’s ear recorded in the American Rabbit and Cavy Breeders Association, Inc., office, which in case of theft, etc., is very valuable.
Heretofore classes denoting quality have been given registrations and certificates issued accordingly but effective Jan. 1, 1926, all classes are dropped and a Standard Certificate issued to cover all registered animals. But Registrars are cautioned to see that no disqualified animal is registered by them.

BREEDS OF RABBITS
By A. Weygandt
About the first question of importance that confronts the beginner when thinking of starting in the rabbit business is—“What Breed Shall I Select?” This is rather a perplexing question to many and is worthy of much thought and while one should consider the object for which he will breed rabbits, he should also remember that there is a possibility of success in any and all breeds if managed properly. I demonstrated this to my own satisfaction several years ago when I began breeding rabbits and know this to be a fact.
Usually the beginners first question is—What Breed is the Best, and Most Profitable?”
Being possessed of rather an inquisitive disposition and seeking a breed to experiment on, I visited several shows and my question was not what is the best breed, but the most unprofitable and poorest breed of rabbit in existance. From what I could learn from the various breeders the "Angora” was the breed I was looking for and they could not be sold or given away. (This was before angora wool became so valuable).
This was just what I wanted and purchased three does and a buck supposed to be fair specimens of the breed. But later on found they were far from being a Standard Bred Angora, and here is where I began to
“Get Busy."
One year went by and not much improvement, two and three and I began to find a decided improvement over my original stock and sales also were being made at a reasonable price and after five years I possessed stock that was a credit to the breed and a good demand for all produced.
So from the above experience, and the experience of others, I suggest that the beginner choose the breed which most appeals to him and he will make a success with it. Of course there are certain exceptions to this rule, but nine out of ten, in doing this will make no mistake.
Occasionally you will hear a breeder remark—this or that breed is “No Good,” but we have many cases of where one will drop a breed condemning it as unprofitable, while another will breed the same variety for years and find them a success in every particular and profitable. So our contention is that there is GOOD in ALL BREEDS and one must remember that the breed is not always at fault but success in rabbit raising not only depends on the BREED but the BREEDER, HOUSING and CARE of the rabbits.
A short description with illustrations of various breeds follows. See Standards for fuller description.
THE ANGORA
One of our most beautiful rabbits and until recent years considered a purely Fancy Variety, but now one of our leading commercial varieties account of the great value of the wool which it produces.
The Angora on this account should be classed as a “Wool Rabbit” and not a fur rabbit as referred to by some writers.
The rabbit originated in the early 50s in Persia, in the same district where the Angora goat made its appearance and was later imported
38

Angora Doe
to France and England and the United States. They are bred in white, blue, black or "smoke” and fawns.
The Angora is not only a beautiful exhibition rabbit, but a useful and profitable rabbit to raise on account of the valuable wool produced.
AMERICAN SILVER GIANT
This is a new breed having just been admitted to our Standard at our last Convention held at Colorado Springs, Nov. 30, Dec. 5, 1925.
(Courtesy W. R. Garland) American Silver Giant
39
The Silver Giant was originated by that veteran Rabbit Breeder, Mr, W. B. Garland of N. Canton, Ohio, and promises to be one of the leading commercial breeds as they produce a beautiful fur of good quality and their size is sufficient to make them a good producer of meat at an early age. At present they are bred in Grays and Blues, but in time the other two colors will probably be perfected as I understand the originator has them well on the way to perfection at this writing.
THE AMERICAN BLUE
Strictly an American production the American Blue might be termed the “Plymouth Rock” of the rabbit family.
The American Blue with its medium size and quick development along with its fur producing qualities makes it a good general purpose breed and also a profitable one.
(Courtesy Lewis H. Salisbury) American Blue Buck
They were first exhibited by Mr. Lewis H. Salisbury of Pasadena, Calif., about 1917, and have been bred quite extensively in the United States for several years past.
They are good breeders and the does make excellent mothers and this with their beautiful blue color make them an ideal meat and fur rabbit.
THE BELGIAN HARE
Generally speaking the name Belgian Hare is more generally known to the public than the name of any other rabbit and often applied to all breeds of domestic rabbits by many people who are not familiar with our domestic breeds.
This is due to it being an old variety and also the great publicity it received due to extensive advertising during the Belgian Hare boom several years ago.
The Belgian is a useful variety and also one of our leading exhibition rabbits. The Belgian Breeders being more liberal and giving us two types to breed from.
One the “Racy" fine boned exhibition type and the other the “Heavy Weight" or commercial type.
40
(Courtesy Fur and Feather) Belgian Hare Buck
The exhibition type has its many admirers and the Heavy Weight type are valuable for commercial purposes.
THE AMERICAN CHECKERED GIANT
One of our most beautiful and useful varieties of rabbits having originated in Germany many years ago and while not as extensively bred as
Black Checkered Giant Buck
41
(Courtesy W. B. Garland)
same varieties it possesses the qualities to make it one of our leading com-mercial varieties as well as a beautiful exhibition rabbit.
While classed as a GIANT it is not as large as the FLEMISH GIANT, but large enough to be attractive and to produce youngsters at a remarkable weight at an early age.
Its beautiful color markings contrasting with its large white body make it very attractive and an exhibit at any show always attracts attention.
It also produces a beautiful fur and same can be used in its natural colors which makes it profitable as a fur rabbit. It is bred in the following colors, Black, Blue, Tortoise and Gray.
BLUE IMPERIAL
A self blue rabbit of the darker blue color and while not of large size, it is considered a good fur rabbit and the skin can be used in the natural color.
Blue Imperial Buck
The Imperials are about the size of the English but more of a Belgian type.
They are hardy and the does make good mothers and have a gentle disposition.
BEVERENS
The Beverens are not only one of the leading Fur Rabbits, but large enough to make a good meat rabbit also placing them on a sound commercial basis.
Blue Beveren Buck

Imported White Beveren Doe
They are bred in Blues and Whites and their skins can be used in the natural state which is an important matter when selecting a fur rabbit.
The Blues also possess a beautiful shade of color that makes them very attractive and their skins with this color and their good quality of fur are quite valuable.
The Whites also possess the same quality of fur and their color make them equally attractive and valuable.
THE CHINCHILLA RABBIT
At the present time this rabbit is enjoying much publicity and the demand for breeding stock far exceeds the supply. Like many other breeds its origin seems to be clouded to a certain extent, but it appears
(Courtesy John C. Fehr)
Chinchilla Buck
to have originated in Serbia in the year 1917, then introduced into France and England and later many specimens have been imported to the United States and Canada.
One cause of its popularity is that it produces fur that is a good imitation of the real chinchilla fur, which is very scarce and valued very highly.
43
The original Chinchilla rabbit is rather small weighing from 5 to 7 lbs., but the breeders are perfecting a larger type. The Heavyweight

Chinchillas weigh 9 to 10 lbs. in order to make them more profitable as a meat rabbit.
Whether or not this can be done and yet retain the valuable fur

qualities of the smaller animal yet remains to be seen. The color of the Chinchilla Rabbit should be as near the original Chinchilla animal as possible.
CHAMPAIGN DE ARGENT
Another of our fur breeds and also profitable as a meat rabbit account of size, mature specimens weighing from 7 to 9 pounds.
This variety also known as the “French Silver” originated in France over fifty years ago, and one of the oldest breeds and it is to be regretted that more of them are not bred in the United States as they are a

beautiful, as well as a useful animal for commercial purposes and are hardy and a good breeder. The skins can also be used and make beautiful furs in their natural state which is of a great advantage to any breed.
In color they are of a silver or to resemble an old silver coin and not the dark shade as some prefer to breed for.
DUTCH
One of our oldest breeds of domestic rabbits and for several years considered one of the leading fancy rabbits in England where competition at the leading shows was keen and individual specimens of exceptional quality sold at high prices.
Today there are not many of them bred in the United States but they are hardy and productive and the does make the best of mothers and might justly be called the “Jersey” of the rabbit family for they are producers of milk and make excellent nurse does.

Dark Grey Dutch Buck
Dutch are not large and are bred in Black, Gray, Yellow and Tor-toise.

THE ENGLISH RABBIT
One of the oldest breeds of rabbits and considered one of the most interesting to breed from a Fanciers standpoint as there is a fascination connected with the breeding of the English that is hard to overcome when one gets to breeding them.
To get the correct markings is no easy task and one can feel he has accomplished something when he produces a prize winner. The English skins make beautiful furs in natural colors as they are bred in Black Blue, Gray and Tortoise.

THE FLEMISH GIANT
The Flemish Giant as the name indicates is the largest breed of rabbit in existence and originated in the early Sixties and were bred from
(Courtesy Lewis S. J. Griffin) Gray Flemish Buck—Good Type
the Old Patigonian Rabbit originating in Flanders, a district in the Southern part of Belgium many years ago.
The first Flemish as bred in Flanders was a big loose built, big bellied rabbit with heavy slouching ears and differed very much from the present day Flemish, which is squarely and firmly built and a beautiful specimen to look upon.
47

The Old Patigonian Rabbit
Just where the Old Patigonian Rabbit received its name no one seems to know as it did not originate in Patigonia as many are led to believe. They were bred for market purposes for many years in the Flanders district and specimens can yet be found in this district, but generally show an improvement over the old type.
Dark Steel Flemish Doe—Good Type
The Dark Steel Grays and Blacks as a rule are not bred to produce their color but one can expect youngsters of all three colors in one litter.
48
Black Flemish Buck
The colors, of course, are a matter of choice and the Flemish furnish several for the breeder to select from.
White Flemish Doe—Good Type
They are a good meat and fur rabbit and also make a good exhibition rabbit and are bred in Steel, Sandy, and Light Gray, also Black, Whites, Blues and Silver Blacks or Silver Tips.
49
However, a few breeders have made good progress in building up a strain that will breed true to color and this is a step in the right direction.
Silver Tip Flemish Buck (Courtesy H. K. Carter)
The Silver Tip is not bred extensively in the U. S. but are a beautiful color if bred properly and produce a valuable pelt for fur.
This along with their meat production make them a good commercial rabbit. Most of the Silver Tip Flemish Breeders are found on the Northwest coast in Oregon and Washington.
Blue Flemish Doe—Good Type
50
The Blue and White Flemish breed true to color and make good commercial rabbits.
They are not quite as large as the Sandy Grays but large enough to produce youngsters for meat purposes at an early age and also make an attractive exhibition rabbit.
HAVANAS
One of the most beautiful fur breeds and a very useful rabbit for their skins require no dying but can be used in the natural state as the rich Chocolate color is very attractive and there is a good demand for these skins at all times.
Havana Buck
The standard weight of the Havana was increased at our last Convention which is a step farther to make the breed a great commercial rabbit.
Havanas are bred in one color only but require skill in breeding to produce stock ideal in color, but it is well worth the breeders effort when he finds himself successful.
HIMALYANS
This attractive little rabbit is said to have originated in the Himalyan mountains hence its name, and is also called the Russian Rabbit at times.
Many are found in China and at present the Himalyan is bred in nearly all European countries and a few in the U. S. It’s white body with
Himalayan Buck and Doe
51
dense Black markings make it very attractive and its fur is valuable. Weight about 5 lbs.
LILACS
Lilacs are one of our fur breeds and while not large are of a very attractive color and originated in England where they have been bred
Lilac Buck
since 1922. They are about the size of English and are of a pinky dove color.
Their coat is not a “fly back” coat but lies close to the body.
THE NEW ZEALAND RED
This breed can justly be called an American Rabbit and while its origin like most others is rather “clouded” there is no doubt but the
A Good New Zealand Red Doe
American Breeders made the rabbit what is today regardless of where the first specimens came from.
The New Zealands are bred in Reds and Whites and are a medium weight rabbit and a good commercial variety being a good meat producer and furnishing a pelt that is also valuable.
52
They are of an Orange Buff color and make a beautiful exhibition rabbit and their furs make up well in the natural color.
The White New Zealand is coming to the front as a Fur Rabbit and like their Red Cousins make a good meat rabbit.

POLISH
This is the "Bantam” of the rabbit family and a very attractive little rabbit with its short ears and short chubby body covered with its pure white coat of fur it always attracts the attention in the show room.
Polish Buck
There is very few of them bred in the United States at present but they should receive the breeder’s attention for they produce a fur of fine texture and good quality.
53
ARGENT CREAM
Another of the promising Fur Breeds but only a few in this country and Canada. The English Breeders in some sections are quite enthusias-tic over them claiming much for them as a fur breed.

Argent Creme Buck
LOPS
For many years the Lop was considered one of the leading fancy rabbits of England and several years ago quite a number were bred in
English Lop Buck
the United States but today the number of good Lops is limited.
One cannot help but admire a good animal, and they always attract attention wherever exhibited. They are bred in both solid and broken colors.
54
THE TANS
This wonderful little animal, though not as extensively bred in this country as in former years is a very valuable fur rabbit and there is a great demand for their skins in the natural colors.
The body or ground color being Black or Blue with tan markings makes them a very attractive rabbit and therefore are one of our leading breeds for exhibition purposes.
Black and Tan Buck
THE JAPANESE
Their fine bone and also fine meat make them suitable for a meat rabbit, where ones requirements are for a small family.
Though called the Japanese there is no definite proof that this rabbit originated in Japan.
In conversation with a native last Fall he stated he never saw one in Japan.
Japanese Ruck
But regardless of where they originated they are a good fur and meat rabbit and its color gives it a striking appearance. The color is black and yellow running in stripes around the body, the brighter the colors the better.
55
SITKA
This rabbit which is about the size of the Beveren promises to be one of the leading fur and meat rabbits and has been called by some a blac Beveren, but it is a distinct breed from the Beveren and its jet
Sitka Buck
(Courtesy Fur and Feather)
black Beveren, but it is a distinct breed from the Beveren and its jet large enough to make it a valuable meat producer.
They are bred in black only and the genuine Sitkas possess fur of one and one-half inches in length which easily distinguishes them from other black rabbits.
SILVERS
These beautiful little rabbits are one of the oldest breeds and are very attractive and a great fur rabbit producing furs that can be used in natural colors and very valuable.
Silver Gray Buck (Light Shade)
They are bred in Grays, Fawns and Browns. The grays come in dark medium and light colors and while the light grays are greatly admired, breeders should hold to the medium shade.
56
(Courtesy Fur and Feather)
Silver Fawn Doe
The Fawns are a beautiful and useful fur rabbit and the color should be a deep bright Orange shade extending as far down toward the skin as possible and color should be even all over the animal. Do not use an animal for breeding with a reddish or gray tinge for this is what the breeders must avoid in breeding for color.
BREEDING AND CARE OF RABBITS
By “EXPERIENCE”
(Courtesy W. G. Claypool)
Rabbit raising is one of the most wonderful opportunities for honest, live wire men, women, boys and girls to engage in. It is clean, profitable and permanent. The sales possibilities are great and unlimited. You don’t have to look for prospects, they are around you all the time. But you must start right—show that you mean business and do things to install public confidence. Please remember this.
No matter in what channel you desire to express your activities
57
you must recognize there are ESSENTIAL TO SUCCESS—they are known as FUNDAMENTALS which must be considered and acted upon at all times. Bear this also in mind as that will ensure a RIGHT BEGINNING which is of great importance.
What are these fundamentals or the corner stones of success?
1. YOU AND YOUR RESOLUTION TO MAKE GOOD.
2. GETTING THE RIGHT KIND OF STOCK TO START WITH.
3. YOUR LOVE FOR ANIMALS AND A DESIRE TO LOOK AFTER THEIR COMFORT AND CARE.
4. APPLYING PROPER BUSINESS METHODS—TO ADVERTISE—TO SELL STOCK AT MODERATE PRICES—AND TO ALWAYS TELL THE TRUTH.
To treat your customer as you would expect him to treat you
You may sum up these cardinal principles in the terms of HONESTY AND A SINCERE DESIRE FOR WORK plus determination to SUCCESS. If you do this YOU ARE BOUND TO SUCCEED. This is practical advice as it comes from ACTUAL EXPERIENCE.
It takes but a few dollars and a little space in your back yard Or lot, or on the farm, plus common sense to start this enterprise. If yon are not privileged to already have access to a barn or other small out-building, it will take but a few common boards, boxes and nails to construct a place suitable to house your rabbits, and, from time time, as the business grows you can build additions to your rabbitry and make whatever improvenemts you deem necessary. All this will come to you by reason of your growing experience. Do not make a mistake by trying to raise rabbits in small soap or apple boxes; cramped space will spell failure.
On account of the fact that a rabbit will eat anything a cow or sheep will eat, and that it is a small animal and is easily fed and cared for, you can see that it takes but a few minutes morning and evening to feed and water the stock, and say half an hour or so once or twice a week to do the cleaning. Your experience will prove that it is very easy and offers a great source of pleasure. This can be done in town or in the country since the rabbit is an animal very readily acclimatized to hot or cold climates.
Boys, and girls, as well as men and women, in all parts of the country are doing well in the raising of rabbits. This is just as much your opportunity as theirs. No matter what your occupation is, this offers you a profitable sideline. People in all walks of life are raising rabbits; doctors, lawyers, school teachers, ministers and other pro-fessional men and women, as well as farmers, poultrymen, mechanics, laborers, etc. IT IS EVERYBODY’S OPPORTUNITY—This means it is yours! Practically everybody loves some sort of animal; rabbits are usually loved, and that’s why people take to them so freely, and always find ready markets for the offspring. Women in particular make a success of the business; many of them do it because they raise the rabbit for its fur, and then make fur garments for themselves as well as to sell to their neighbors and friends.
Selecting the Stock
Having made up your mind in a definite way to raise rabbits, your next move is in the selection of stock. This is the second of the basic fundamentals. Our advice is GET THE BEST. It is far better to invest in one or two of the best specimens than a dozen common rabbits known as “scrubs.” It costs no more to raise the good ones. You will find it much more profitable to produce and sell stock raised from a few of the best kind, than you would if you were raising plenty of the common ones. PEOPLE ALWAYS WANT THE BEST their money can buy and that is where you will ALWAYS FIND A READY MARKET. In purchasing your stock, you will act wisely if you get them
58
from established breeders who sell registered stock, or those eligible to register. These breeders are always willing to help the novice with profitable advice, which means a whole lot to a new beginner. If possible, buy registered animals, as that kind of rabbit stands for quality and “quality always counts” in valuation, then your sales will be profitable in every instance because if your guarantee of “quality” backed up by registration certificates. If you are not sufficiently acquainted with the rabbit world to know who is raising registered stock and is reliable, an inquiry addressed to the Secretary of the American Rabbit & Cavy Breeders Association will bring the necessary information to you. It is also well to bear in mind to buy rabbits from a breeder in good standing with one or more of the rabbit associations because in the case of dissatisfaction or an unfair dealing, it is much easier to remedy through an association’s secretary acting as intermediary than between the parties themselves when it looks like as if they cannot come to an agreement, or that one party has taken advantage of the other. Misunderstandings are cleared up that way, and it creates a better feeling between all interested parties and protects the welfare of the industry as well.
Let us agree that you have the best stock to start in with. Now we will proceed further.
You Must Have a Love for Rabbits
In other words, taking care of the stock must be a source of pleasure to you and not tiresome and boresome. If it does not afford joy and satisfaction, there is something wrong with YOU; for having the right kind of stock at the start there cannot be anything wrong with them. Then the fault is on YOUR side and it is time for you to ask yourself the question “Do I love rabbits?” Decide whether you do or do not. If you do, then it is all right—Go ahead! you’ll soon get to like it. But if you don’t love rabbits, then the sooner you get out of the business the better it will be for you and for the industry. Bear this in mind, as it is a lesson you should well learn. There is JUST ONE WAY in which to do a thing if you want to SUCCEED and that is THE RIGHT WAY. Carelessness and indifference are allied with failure. Take care you don’t ally yourself with these weaknesses.
A world of experience in the raising of rabbits could here be related showing many ups and downs. For your guidance, we will but mention one or two instances, thus you may profit by them and avoid such errors and failure. Hired help can not always be depended upon. Some of them are careless and indifferent, and we will tell you how these fellows place their jobs in jeopardy.
Cause of Failure. This is where a man is hired; he works like a machine He gos from hutch ti hutch and places the same quantity of feed and water in every hutch without the slightest consideration as to how many rabbits there are in each compartment. This man simply thinks of “feeding” and “watering” and he doesn’t stop to consider that two, three, four or more rabbits in a hutch should have more feed and water than where there is one rabbit only. Again, he treats a doe with a litter the same. All he knows and all he wants to know is that he is through with feeding and watering the stock and the quicker it is done, the better he is satisfied. He doesn’t love animals; he thinks to himself a rabbit is a rabbit, and that’s all he cares about. He fails to understand that a rabbit can get hungry and thirsty; he doesn’t think that a doe with a litter of youngsters needs extra care; he doesn’t think that a mother doe must have plenty of bedding, additional feed. etc. Oh no! that sort of attendant has his mind on quitting time and “pay day," and that day can never come soon enough for him. He thinks of the money, and never thinks of what service he has rendered for his pay and whether he earned it or not. That fellow would like to have
59
365 pay days every year and “everything else can go to the dogs,” it were. Can you imagine a fellow like that? We can—we not only imagine it, but we know there are such men. A good many of them wonder why they do not succeed. It takes but a little bit of common sense to know why, it is because they ignore the fundamentals of suc-cess and are always “laying down on their job.” These are the kind of fellows that rabbit industry can do without; they do more harm than good to the general well-being of the business. They are better “out" than “in.” Moral—Take heed of what this lesson teaches. It needs no further comment.
PROPER BREEDING
No doe should be bred until she is 8 months old, and no buck should be used for service till he is of the same age. This is the belief and practice generally in rabbitdom, though there are a few breeders here and there who believe that a doe can be bred at a younger age. That may be so, but if you want healthy and the best of stock, the best policy to pursue is the 8-months-old, so far as the breeding age of the rabbits is concerned. Few rabbits mature under 8 months of age. The smaller breeds can be bred at 4 to 6 months of age
After service, the doe is due to litter in thirty days. At the time she should have plenty of feed and water before her, also provide for her a nice warm box with plenty of hay or other nesting material. See that she is properly attended in this respect. Should the litter consist of more than six, it is advisable to give the surplus above six to nurse doe if you have so provided; if not, then it will pay you to see what kind of a litter there is, and cull out the weaklings and destroy them. If your doe has six youngsters to care for, that is plenty, as you can then expect her to raise them nicely and in healthy and growing condition. Don’t think you are losing money in getting rid of surplus. ‘You are not; it is much better to raise five or six good youngsters than to raise more than that of weaklings which will never amount to any-thing, and perhaps give you a lot of trouble. Moral—Raise few, the you raise the best.
A CLEAN HOUSE
You always like to see a dean home, don’t you? We all do. Well your rabbits also need a “clean home,” and as they are unable to do it themselves, that is YOUR JOB and it should be done at least once week, all the better if you can do it two or three times, It only takes a few minutes to do this each time; will not only be beneficial to the health of your stock, but will give you credit as well for attending such an important matter in the welfare of your business.
THE FUTURE OF THE INDUSTRY
When one considers the tremendous importance of the rabbit relation to the commercial life of our nation, especially by way of food and for fur, THERE IS A BIG FUTURE FOR THE RABBIT. As you grow in the business you will learn more and more in this connection of the time, which should spur you on to greater ambition so as to help develope one of the BIGGEST COMMERCIAL ENTERPRISES IN THE FUTURE OF AMERICA. We refer to the RABBIT INDUSTRY. Space forbids us to go into the “why” and the “wherefore” of it at this time However, as we have said, every day you are in the business will give you a broader vision as to the potentialities of the enterprise. Stick it—in time, you’ll find it a bigger thing than you ever dreamed of.

PUBLICITY GENERALITIES
In seeking and working for success your mind should be centered on the industry; then you will be working for the interest of others as well as for your own—which makes it better for everybody. You should contribute an article once in a while to your local newspaper and other publications. Publicity in that connection will bear a whole lot of weight for the future success of the industry, and indirectly you benefit as well by reason of giving such publicity. This is an advertising age, and every well-written article telling of actual experiences with rabbits will do much to influence other people to raise rabbits.
Be fair, spuare, open and above board at all times; be true to yourself. The policy of success is one of right doing. You will find that the industry will offer its drawbacks, but that is not due to any wilful misconduct or such like on the part of some breeders, but rather due to ignorance or lack of knowledge as to the proper thing to do. If you

do all you can to help others as well as look after your own interests you will be surprised at the wonderful progressive influence it bears, and being general in its application will mean a great deal for the welfare of the rabbit industry in general.

To the novice we repeat GET THE BEST THAT MONEY CAN BUY. Insist that you know the age, weight and quality of the stock you are buying. If you are not familiar with the standard requirements for proper specimens, all you have to do is to write to the Secertary of the American Rabbit & Cavy Breeders Association, who will supply you with necessary information as to Standards, etc., of each of the various breeds. A RIGHT START IS HALF WAY TO SUCCESS.
In all of your business dealings whether buying or selling, be true. Mis-statements lead to misunderstanding and sometimes lots of trouble All of this can be avoided by being true to yourself and true to the other fellow. Don’t forget to use the advertising columns of publications when you want to buy or sell stock. Publicity in that connection is worth lots to your business success. By advertising your name is known in all parts of the country, whereas, if you confine your business and your sales locally, you may not get so far ahead, so always figure to add some publicity to your business as occasion may require in branching out. Of course, you must not neglect to advertise in your own locals. Very often a breeder can establish a mighty fine business in his town and make the enterprise just as large as he wants to. THAT IS UP TO YOU. If at first you do not find ready sales in your city or town, or other place where you are located, don’t conclude hastily that people don’t want rabbits. The fact is, they need education up to the fact as to the UTILITY OF THE RABBIT. Your business is to do that educating. Before you started raising rabbits, others had to educate you to the possibilities of the business. Now it’s your turn to EDUCATE OTHER PEOPLE and thereby create your own markets, locally or otherwise. Tell the folk all about rabbits—what nice eating they make and what nice fur garments the skins can be used for. If you feel, like it, arrange to have space in one of the local stores, display some meat rabbits, offer some rabbit sandwitches; also display furs. In this way, you will surely create lots of local sentiment in favor of the rabbit, and you will be surprised how many sales you can make. It will keep you busy for quite a long while to raise the stock to take care of the demand. This is no idle fancy; this is REAL EXPERIENCE; THEY ARE FACTS, and we are telling them to you so that YOU CAN PROFIT THEREBY.
In selecting breeding stock, the beginner as well as the experienced breeder should consider the previous record of the rabbit to be bought. If the doe has a bad record, such as giving birth to only two or three young, or if she has failed or refused to breed as she should, she would be a poor doe to select to breed from. Some does may have several young and fail to raise them for some cause or other. They may form the habit of eating them when born, or may be careless and sit on them and kill them. It is not a question of how many young the doe may have, but how many she raises that counts. It is absolutely necessary to secure breeding stock that has a good previous record, in order to have any success in the rabbit industry.
Selecting the breeding stock for a rabbitry is a very interesting part of the business. One should know the different points of a rabbit according to the standard for the breed selected. If the beginner is not familiar with these different points, he should secure a grade card from some good authority and study the different points until he has learned them well and can recognize these different points, or qualifications when he sees them. He should be able to recognize the disqualifications as well. If the beginner does not think he is qualified to judge a rabbit, it is advisable for him to take someone with him that is qualified. There are many commercial breeders that are perfectly reliable and trustworthy, and will help the beginner to select just what he wants. Then there are others who will take advantage of the beginner’s inex-
62
perience and endeavor to sell him poor stock, the noes he doesn’t want to keep himself. There are probably as many dishonest and unscrupulous men in the rabbit industry as in any other line of business. Therefore it is advisable to investigate the refutation of the breeders before purchasing.
In selecting the breeding stock, always remember that “like begets like.” If one wants large bone ,then select the largest-boned rabbit available. If you want short, chunky bodies, then select one of that type. The different breeds have their different points of standard. So in selecting the breeding one should select for as near the standard as possible. The perfect rabbit has never been attained. In judging rabbits, 100 points is considered the ideal, the same as in larger animals. The grade card previously referred to will show you the number of points allowed for each qualification. These 'qualifications are only necessary in rabbits for show purposes, or fancy stock. In selecting for utility purposes, one needs to select only for the purpose desired, i. e., if you want meat rabbits, select for quick vigorous growth. One may want certain markings in the fur and this can sometimes be attained by line breeding. It is advisable for the beginner to start with only one breed and stick to it until he has learned how to raise that breed successfully.
A rabbit breeder should be familiar with the terms used in the rabbit industry. A pure bred rabbit is one that has been bred for at least eight generations in a definite line, and with a well kept record of its ancestors. Thorough-bred is sometimes used In live stock of all kinds, such as cattle sheep, hogs etc, but it really means a running horse, that is, a race horse, while standard bred means a race horse of trotting stock. Therefore neither of these words would be proper in speaking of rabbits. Pure bred is the better word. Cross breeding means the mating of two different breeds. This is often resorted to where the breder has some certain object in view, and sometimes results in very desirable characteristics. But the beginner is not advised to resort to cross breeding if he is after any definite results. Corsss bred rabbits are not eligible to registry.
In inbreeding, closely related individuals are mated. Such as father to daughter or mother to son. It is inadvisable to mate sister with brother as the offspring is liable to be weak, besides any defects are likely to be increased. Inbreeding is line breeding in the extreme.
“Line breeding is the mating of closely related lines of descent.” The object of line breeding is to establish a certain strain, better than their ancestors, if possible. This is the method used in improving all lines of animals, live stock, poultry etc. Individuals are mated to atain certain points or characteristics, with the object of obtaining a better strain of that particular breed. The points desired are to be selected for, and the undesirable points are to be bred out. Always select strong, healthy stock for line breeding, as weak stock, whic hi snever desirable, will manifest itself in line breeding, or inbreeding much more rapidly than in stock that are not related.
It is advisable for one starting in the rabbit industry to visit shows and all the different rabbitries he can. He will learn many things in regard to breeding, selecting for different points and the care and feeding of rabbits.
In breeding rabbits, it is necessary to know when the doe is ready for service. This can generally be known by the doe stamping the floor, jumping about the hutch in a restless manner and the sexual organs become swollen and reddish in color.
The larger breeds should not be bred under 7 to 8 months of age, 8 is better. It is not advisable to breed young does the first few times they come in. As some will take the buch at a very early age, sometimes as early as four or five months. Better wait until they have attained their maturity if you expect the best results from them. The
63
smaller breeds can be safely bred at from 6 to7 months of age. The buck should not be used until he is 6 or 7 months old. In breeding rabbits two young the offspring are likely to be weaklings. Besides in breeding does too young you are likely to have trouble in getting them to conceive. The young buck should not be used more than two or three times the first month. Then not oftener than once a week for a month or so. After this he should never be used oftener than three times a week. Always take the doe to the buck’s hutch. Never take the buck to the doe’s hutch. She is more likely to fight in her own hutch than in others. When taking the doe to the buck's hutch, place her on the floor and watch her closely. If she runs about and tries to get away from the buck or hugs the floor remove her at once and try her again the next day and the next if necessary. Some bucks are mean to fight the doe if they are not ready for service and some does will fight the buck. For this reason it is necessary to watch them both to prevent injury. The per-iodic interval for breeding is from three to five days. If the doe is in heat, service will take place immediately, the buck will fall over on his side or back. The doe should be removed at once. One service is suffici-ent. Rabbits should not be bred during the hot summer months. Very hot weather affects rabbits especially when bred. Never have more than six young to the doe. She has only eight teats and can not nurse but eight. If she has more than this number some of them will have to go without their dinner, consequently will not be strong and vigorous as they should. They will also fail to grow as rapidly as they should at this time. If they are stunted for lack of nourishment at first, they will never attain the size and strength that they would if given a good start in life at first. Four young are better than six for most does. Some does, like cows, give more milk than others. For this reason some does will nurse eight young and bring them through in good shape while others will do better with four.
The period of gestation is 30 or 31 days. The doe should not be allowed to get too fat and shuld be kept quiet after breeding. Do not allow anything near her hutch that will frighten her. Children romp-ing and playing should never be allowed near the hutch. Dogs especially, should never be allowed near a rabbit hutch. The rabbit is a very timid animal and dogs are their natural enemy. Even though the dog be a pet, the rabbit doesn’t know it and is naturally afraid of them. If you have a doe that has more than six, and one that kindles about the same time that has less than six you can use her as a foster mother If one is raising pedigreed rabbits, he will have to keep track of the little ones so distributed. Some times it pays to kill all the young from In handling the young for any reason, one should always rub his hands In handling the young for any reason, oe should always rub his hands on the fur of the mother or the foster mother, as the case may be, to get her scent, before touching the young. The young begin to nibble the feed with their mother at about one month of age and may be placed in the weaning pen at 7 to 8 weeks of age. It is not advisable to wean the rabbits too soon after breeding the doe. Wait six or seven days before taking them from her. If taken away too soon, it tends to upset her at this time, which should be avoided.
A well kept record should be kept of every breeding rabbit and those you intend to sell as breeding stock. One can secure pedigree blanks from any rabbit publishing house for this purpose. A hutch record should be kept on every doe’s hutch. These record cards have columns for, the buck served, date served, date tested, date kindled number of young, date weaned and remarks, as well as the hutch number, ear number, name size, dam, date born, and breed of the doe It is necessary to keep these Hutch Record Cards on every hutch ant mark them properly at the proper time if you expect to make a success of the rabbit industry.

FEEDING RABBITS
By A. Wygandt Green Food
There is so much said and written on the subject of Feeding Rabbits it often is very confusing to the beginner as the more he reads on the subject, the more confusing statements he will see and all from seemingly well experienced breeders.
One will suggest green food another states he would feed green food under no conditions, etc.
When we find conflicting statements like the above the beginner should just go “fifty fifty’ and feed a little green food, but feed sparingly. Do not throw enough green food in the hutch to do for three or four days and think your rabbits will thrive on this system of feeding for they will not.
A little green food or roots two or three times a week is very beneficial to either breeding stock or growing youngsters, but should be given in quantities that they can clean up in 15 or 20 minutes and it should be fresh and not frosted or frozen. Dandelions are fine in early spring and summer and the Giant variety can be grown and cultivated and a large amount of feed can be produced on a small plot of ground.
Giant Chickory is another valuable green food which can be cultivated and can be grown from the seed and is a Brennial plant and hardy.
From early fall on through the winter carrots both tops and roots are a valuable food and those two can be grown by the breeder. Sow in rows very thick and after tops get up eight or ten inches high commence to pull and feed, thinning your rows until a suitable number of plants are left to produce good sized carrots for winter feeding. Cauliflower leaves are also good, but cabbage leaves a very offensive smell in the hutches.
Hay and Grain
Hay and oats if obtainable should be your main feed for breeders and youngsters after three or four months of age and if oats cannot be secured barley is the next best grain food and can be fed either whole or crushed, but prefer the crushed for growing youngsters.
The great mistake most beginners make in feeding grain is that they feed too heavily getting their breeding does too fat resulting in a disappointment in expected litters. Many producing no youngsters
65
and those that do only a few in a litter and not possessing the strength and vigor they should, resulting in a large percentage of losses and the beginner naturally gets discouraged blaming the rabbits, when in fact the cause is his, “over kindness” in his feeding.
No definite rule can be laid down as to the amount of grain to feed, as individuals of the same breed differ so much in their requirements.
When you place grain in your feed crocks and it is not all consumed at the next feeding time, pass this crock up until the next time. If grain is untouched you had better stop and examine the animal carefully for the chances are “something is wrong.”
I prefer feeding breeding and matured stock once a day preferably in the evening as the rabbit is a nocturnal animal and is more active during the night and will enjoy its feed at this time and naturally the results will be better than if fed during the day as this is when rabbits enjoy their rest.
Breeding does and youngsters require more feed and should be fed night and morning. Hay can be kept before them all the time.
A balanced ration consists of five main compounds, Protein, Carbol-hydrates, Fat, Mineral Salts and the important Vitamlnes. The carbol-hydrates contain the carbon and hydrogen and hydrogen is one of the two parts of water. Two parts Hydrogen and one part oxygen mixed together is what you have in water.
This is the reason you should give your rabbits plenty of pure fresh water. The oxygen in the water is used by the body and helps to maintain the necessary heat. The proteins are the muscle builders. The fats help to make tissue and keep the machinery oiled. The mineral matter also goes to all parts of th body being carried by the blood to the nerves, muscles and bones, etc.
There are three kinds of vitamines. One is dissolvable in water, one in oil, and the other is dissolvable in either water or oil or both. They are necessary to assimulate the food eaten and to eliminate the waste matter thrown off.
If the organs of the body are in a healthy condition they will get rid of all poisonous waste and they will be in a healthy condition if the animal is fed and cared for properly. So the way to keep your stock healthy is to feed good wholesome grain and hay and give plenty of fresh pure water.
Oats comes nearer than any other grain in furnishing a perfect diet for rabbits according to the analysis, but rabbits like a change as well as ourselves.
Following is the analysis of good oats:
Protein or Flesh Formers_______________________15.1%
Fat or Oil..................................... 5.9%
Heat formers......................... _...46.9%
Bone formers................................. 1.9%
Husk or fibre----------------_-----------------20.4%
Water _______________________________________ 9.8%
As I stated before if you cannot secure oats, barley will make a good substitute but if both can be had it is well to feed alternately, thus giving a change.
66
Analysis of Barley:
Protein or Flesh former..—----------------10.9%
Fat and Oil....—........................... 1.9%
Heat former.............................. 60.2%
Bone former............................ 19%
Husk and Fibre ___________________________14.2%
Water __________________________________ 10.9%
In regard to hay the main object in securing hay for your stock is to see that it is sweet and free from must or mold and keep this in mind rather than the kind you use. Good sweet green alfalfa or clover is to be chosen if same can be secured but I would prefer plain timothy if good rather than musty alfalfa or clover.
Feeding Breeding Does
As I stated before, keep your breeding does in a good healthy condition but do not get them over fat. About a week before time to kindle give them a "milk sop’’ once a day if available, (break a little bread in a dish and pour a little sweet milk over it) then after the youngsters are born keep this up along with the other feed and when the youngsters commence to leave the nest set a crock of rolled oats in the hutch for their little stomaches are not capable of digesting hard grains yet and if allowed to eat solid foods too early Indigestion will result and your trouble begins.
If you cannot furnish your doe milk sops commence about a week before time to kindle and give a little green food each day or carrots so as to have the milk ready for the youngstrs when they arrive.
Now that the doe has her litter feed her twice daily and keep oatmeal before the youngsters at all times and at weaning time continue to feed the youngsters twice daily giving either rolled oats or crushed barley or better both alternately along with good alfalfa and roots or green food if available, also whole oats can be given at this time as a change occassionally.
Mashes

Mashes are fed by many rabbit breeders who care to take the time and trouble to mix them up and should not be made the same at all times as there is several different methods of making a mash.
Brand and Barley meal, Brand and Middlings, Brand and Clover meal and house scraps and ground oats may be included for a variety. Clean household scraps included in the mash are relished by the stock and gives them a change, potato peelings etc.
67
Following is a good mash formula.
Two quarts ground alfalfa place in bucket and cover with boiling water, (not too much water) Let set for three or four hours. Then stir in to a (crumbly mass) the following:
1 hand full Beet Pulp
2 hands full Wheat Bran
3 hands full Rolled oats or (ground oats)
1 hand full Oil Meal.
If too dry add a little more water but aim to feed in a dry crumbly mass just so it will stick together (not wet).
Here is another successful mash:
Ground corn..........................—........251bs
Ground oats .............-...............-....251bs.
Ground Barley ...........—...........-........151bs.
Bran ............ ....... —................—201bs.
Shorts .......................................151bs.
Horse alfalfa .. .. - . ---- -------------151bs.
Oil meal ............ ........................31bs.
If stock is not accustomed to mashes it is necessary to feed sparingly at the start or looseness of the bowels will result.
In conclusion I wish to say that if your stock is healthy and in good condition do not worry about changing your feed. Let good enough alone. One section of the country may have a certain grain or hay in quantity and about all there is available for the breeder to secure for his stock. If your stock thrives on this by all means do not go to the expense and trouble of having food shipped in from outside points.
THE PROPER HOUSING OF RABBITS
By Edw. H. Stahl and James Bunt
There are many things that enter into the success of any and every kind of enterprise—no matter what it is—and, when it comes to rabbits it has precisely the same bearing.
Unquestionably one of the foremost thoughts entering the mind of the prospective rabbit breeder—as well as most every rabbit breeder of the present, is the matter of good stock. That appears to be a most salient consideration—and, rightly so. However, that’s but one only of the success essentials.
What’s another important one you may ask? RIGHT HOUSING of course. Yes, it’s mighty important—and just as necessary as it is for a human being to live out of the slums and an unhealthy neighborhood, into some worth-while healthy quarter, WHERE THERE IS PLENTY OF ROOM and AN OPEN AVENUE OF FRESH AIR and of that MASTERPIECE OF SANITATION—namely, SUNSHINE. Good stock with every chance of MAKING THE BEST accompanied by the above mentioned FEATURES OF IMPORTANCE will give the rabbit breeder every opportunity of MAKING GOOD.
Well! You may say it’s all very well to talk about it—but TELL us waht you mean by THE PROPER HOUSING OF RABBITS.
That’s what we’ll start in doing—right now, because it is the chief aim of this article to not only give you our opinion, but to tell you of our experiences after years of actual daily contact with rabbits.
68
NEXT TO GOOD STOCK COMES PROPER HOUSING
Do you get that? If not, read that headline over again. We want to convert you one that proposition—then we’ll know that you’ll read the following with eagerness and with a desire to learn what is meant by PROPER HOUSING, so that you may benefit therefrom. At least, we hope so.
For years, the question of GOOD STOCK has been the prime consideration of animal breeders—but, let us assure you that the ONE GREAT THING to go HAND IN HAND with GOOD STOCK is PROPER HOUSING. Pardon us using that term so often, but— it is done for the sole purpose of DRIVING THAT IMPORTANT THOUGHT INTO YOUR
MIND so that it will remain there and cause you to actuate your muscular powers into building PROPER HOUSES if your stock are not already in effective health-giving-kind of hutches. Get that? We hope so.
There are some breeders who commence with GOOD STOCK but use POOR HOUSING—while there are others who have GOOD HOUSING but start in with POOR STOCK. No matter which way it is in either of these connections—BOTH ARE WRONG—and there’s but ONE WAY and ONE WAY ONLY to start raising rabbits and to CONTINUE in the business—that is, START WITH GOOD STOCK and HAVE GOOD HOUSING—then YOU’VE STARTED RIGHT on the ROAD TO SUCCESS in the RABBIT BUSINESS.
In a letter recently received at our office from one of the oldest and authoritative rabbit judges in the United States— he says:
“There are people who do not hesitate to pay $25.00 each for their breeding stock—who, on the other hand do not think to spend enough to house the stock as it should be housed.”
Get the point? It’s just as unwise to invest in good stock and have poor housing accomodation for your rabbits, as it is to start in with poor stock and to house them in good hutches. GOOD STOCK AND GOOD HOUSING MUST GO HAND IN HAND TO MAKE HEADWAY IN THE BUSINESS. Spend good money for good stock and spend good money for good hutches, then you’re wise.
The comments made by the said judge are true. We know of a good many cases where we have seen good stock housed in small makeshift hutches—dry goods boxes, as it were—too small to afford proper exercising for the stock. Under such poor housing conditions, there's but one result—that is, the running down of stock in health in a very short time—stunted stock so far as growth is concerned—runty—diseased—lopped eared, crippled rabbits. Some breeders, housing their rabbits under these undesirable conditions wonder why they fail to make a success in the business—wonder why their stock doesn’t “make good”. Why wonder, when the fault is the faulty housing? It couldn’s be otherwise. IMPROPER HOUSING IS THE CHIEF CAUSE OF THESE FAILURES—and, we regret to say so, nevertheless it’s a fact, that there are TOO MANY rabbit breeders today who come under the above category—shame to say it—but FACTS ARE FACTS, and we must speak of them as we find them, what say you? The truth shouldn’t hurt anybody, should it? POOR HOUSING is one of the chief reasons why there are so many failures in the rabbit business. If these breeders housed their rabbits in proper quarters, they would HIT THE TRAIL OF SUCCESS and positively succeed. Read on! because we are going to tell you what we mean by PROPER HOUSING OF RABBITS—then you can measure your own rabbitry about such ESSENTIAL requirements—and, if yours do not correspond therewith—or, approximately so, that may be the real reason why some of you are failing to produce the stock that should make you money. If you have stock of pro-
69
per breeding-—if you give the rabbits the proper care and attention-then, if you fail, more than likely the hutches are wrongly constructed —or, there’s something wrong with them, somehow, somewhere.
READ THE FOLLOWIN—THEN YOU MAY BE ABLE TO DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT THE HOUSING ACCOMMODATION OF YOUR RABBITS IS EFFICIENT FOR BEST RESULTS
Take particular note of the measurements—as they play an important part in this consideration.
SIZE OF HUTCHES
In making these suggestions we wish to state, the more room you can give your rabbits—the better.
For the smaller breeds such as the Havanas—Chinchillas—Dutch Himalayan—and such like, the SMALLEST HUTCH should be 2 1/2 feet deep—3 1/2 feet long—and, 18 inches high; for New Zealand Reds— American Blues—White Beverens and other breeds of MEDIUM size, the hutch should be not under 2 1/2 feet deep—4 feet long—and 20 inches high; for Flemish Giants and other large breeds the hutch should be not less than 3 feet deep—5 feet long and 24 inches high.
The above dimensions offord the smallest measurements for hutch construction—but, it would be far better if you made them two feet longer (according to breed) it would have its advantages, which will be explained in the next section.
Hutches constructed as per above sizes afford ample room for breeding does—and for bucks. However, for does with young and which are kept with the mother till the youngsters are 8 weeks old or older, we would suggest larger size hutches than above described, so as to give the young plenty of scope for exercise—as, we must remember, that given the facility for growing while in their youth period—as it were, the youngsters will grow mighty fast; give insufficient space, they will get stunted right at the start, and fail to make even an average specimen. Bear these things in mind.
THE ADVANTAGES OF ROOMY HUTCHES
There’s no question about it—that, the bigger the hutches the better it will be for the rabbits. What we mean is this. Rabbits kept in hutches as above described will do all right still, experience has taught us, that even larger quarters will enable the rabbits to do all the better. In other words. YOU GET BEST RESULTS FROM LARGE ACCOMODATING HUTCHES.
There are times when breeders observe that their rabbits lose their appetite,—the stock won’t eat, or fail to eat the quantity of food that is necessary to their well-being. You begin to wonder why. You think of everything else but forget about “cramped housing quarters’’. In nine case out of ten, a rabbit that falls down on eating ability is due to the fact of acute indigestion, due to inefficient housing— failure of the necessary room for proper exercise so as to allow of the food to properly assimilate and digest in the rabbit. In order to get best results from any ond every food (whether with man or beast) there must (at least) be a certain amount of NECESSARY physical exercise to help the food to properly function in the body. If you find your stock “out of condition” at times failing to eat the grain or hay, or other tempting feed, remember it is quite likely to be due to “improper housing”. Look into it for it’s worth an investigation, to say the least, as it may solve your problem.
70
Most of our breeding hutches are 30 x 48 inches and 20 inches high. On the average, rabbits do well in such quarters—still, constipation occurs at times with the stock in these hutches—but, when the rabbits are weaned they are out into hutches 3 feet by 6 feet, and 24 inches high. Here is where they make rapid growth. In fact, after weaning they grow very fast because they have AMPLE ROOM for exercise—they LENGTHEN OUT and PUT ON WEIGHT quite RAPIDLY and RETAIN HEALTH AND VIGOR—and THRIVE—therefore making the BEST OF RABBITS. Why? Simply because we HOUSE THEM PROPERLY, especially AFTER THEY ARE WEANED. Get the point? If you are not succeeding in bringing up your young rabbits to efficinecy—THERE’S A REASON—maybe, faulty hutches—INVESTIGATE!
VARIOUS TYPES OF HUTCHES
There are many different kinds and types of hutches ’tis true, perhaps we don’t see two alike, when it comes to visiting different rab-biteries—that is, the physical appearance, as it were—After all, when it comes to dimensions, we find so many so nearly alike in size. Hence, it is hard to describe one hutch that will meet all requirements in all sections of the country, and in all climates. All one can do, is to afford information as to dimensions of “rooming space”—then with
regard to contending against the factors of weather elements, the breeder will have to look into that part of it for himself.
In recent years we have noted that more hutches have been built in tiers of two and three high—usually, facing south with the three other sides closed. This has become very popular with breeders especially by those who have raised rabbits for years. Taking all in all—and with our years of experience, we do believe that the tier system of hutching rabbits is one of the best—if not the best, and will meet with the requirements in all sections of the country—also in Canada. Of course, roofs—shade—and such other factors against direct sun rays— rains—storms, etc, have to have local solution by the breeder himself. However, he’ll soon solve that part of the housing once he gets settled down on the matter of dimensions of each hutch, the tier proposition, and other such important factors covered in this writing.
The reason for facing hutches to the south is because it admits of the best kind of ventilation—which is HEALTH GIVING at all times of the year. In the summer, the sun is a most wonderful disinfectant. This does not mean that your hutches should be so located that the hot sun’s rays should shine directly in them—not so—but the effect of the rays, as the air that strikes and enters the hutches should be the air that passes “through” the sun’s rays, thereby modified temperature—pure warm air, yet not too hot—simply a wave of fresh— breezy—health-giving atmosphere. Of course, this refers to hutches that are on the outside—as this condition cannot obtain where hutched are kept inside of a building. Therefore, we recommend, that as far as possible (consistent with the usual weather elements of the locality) that you build your rabbit hutches on the outside—facing south— per-ferably two or three tiers high—shaded from the direct rays of the sun.
THE TIER SYSTEM OF HUTCHES MEANS THAT MANY RABBITS CAN BE RAISED AND HOUSED IN A LIMITED SPACE
Yes—the tier system of rabbit housing affords the breeder with small space to make it possible for him to raise lots of rabbits. Having the hutches two or three high, enables him to raise three rabbits to the other’s one, who as a single tier and the same amount of ground used for the hutches. Therefore, bear this tier system in mind, and you’ll then raise more rabbits than you otherwise would (in a limited
71
space ) you have but one tier of hutches only. Build three high where you can.
THE BUILDING OF HUTCHES
There are a few features that should not be overlooked in the building of hutches. For instance, presuming you are interested in the hutch described, there are some things that might enter into it which would make it uncomfortable for stock at certain times of the year. This is what we mean—consider the top row of hutches—those right under the roof. When it is really hot, rabbits cannot exist under those conditions in the said top tier of hutches—BUT—this is overcome and you can keep the rabbits in the top hutch all year round—IF you will build your roof about 8 to 12 inches above the top (roof) of the top tier of hutches. That is, there should be an air space of about 8 to 12 inches between the top tier of hutches and the roof. Get the point? The air coming in this space VENTILATES AND COOLS the top tier of hutches and you are safe in keeping your rabbits there throughout the year— BUT, if you fail to make this air space between the top of the highest tier and the roof, you will have to take the rabbits out of the top tier of hutches, otherwise your stock will die. While you are building your hutches bear this IMPORTANT FEATURE in mind and build the air-space. It won’t take you any longer—will cost no more and it will permit you to keep your stock safely in the top hutches throughout the year without any fear of stock dying during hot weather. YOU MUST CONSIDER PROPER VENTILATION OF HUTCHES IF YOU WANT TO SUCCEED IN THE RABBIT BUSINESS. Don’t overlook that point.
SELF CLEANING HUTCHES
There are quite a number of types of self-cleaning hutches in use —many of them seem to give entire satisfaction. These hutches are built in a number of different ways. We will try to explain some of them.
First: There is one kind where the floors are built sloping towards the front—a fall of about one inch to the foot will carry off the refuse that collects in the hutches. Then there is the style that slopes toward the back for 24 inches—then a screen netting is used (1/2 inch mesh) which is right at the back about the length of the hutch and 8 to 12 inches in width. Underneath there is galvanized metal sloping—thus, the refuse falling between the netting—falls on the slope, and from the slope falls out on the ground at the back of the hutch. Of course, this means that there is an opening at the back to allow of the waste to fall off on the ground. Some people are inclined to believe that this causes a draft to go up through the netting into the hutch. Our experience has found this not to be so—but, after all, it is always safe to play “safety first’’ whenever and wherever possible, so for those who “fear” this draft entering the hutch from underneath the netting, we suggest that you close up the back opening by a piece of board—same size as the opening—hinged to the hutch, which would be swung open at the time you want to clean out the refuse which has fallen through the netting on to the galvanized metal. In summer this back opening can be kept open by hooking the traphatch or door—then, in winter, release the hook and the door will close up the opening where the refuse comes through.
NON SELF-CLEANING HUTCHES
Where rabbits are raised in this kind of hutch we believe it is advisable to clean the floors at least twice a week. If you can get sawdust from a nearby planing mill or other place—do so, spread it on the floor of the hutch—it will absorbe the moisture and make the clean-
72
ing all the easier. Hutch floors of this kind should be cleaned at least twice a week. Dirty hutch floors means accumulation of filth—a nesting place for germs—consequently infected animals with ear canker—footrot—sore hock, and so many of the other diseases found in some rabbitries. A WELL BRUSHED OUT—WELL SCRAPED— WELL CLEANED—WELL VENTILATED and WELL DISINFECTED HUTCH will keep your STOCK HEALTHY three hundred and sisty-five days in the year—plus one extra day, every fourth year. Some use the slat Bottom for self cleaning hutches which does very nicely. Slats are 1 1/2 inches wide and set 3/8 to½ inch apart leaving there openings for the droppings to fall through.
NEST BOXES
Each hutch should have a nest box. This should be not less than 10 inches wide—12 inches high— and 16 inches long— for all breeds of rabbits, except the giants. Those who are raising the latter breed should use nest boxes of about 14 inches wide— 14 inches high—by about 20 inches long. In building, it is well to arrange them so that you can very easily get to the young from the door of the hutch. A very satisfactory nest box is one with a hole in one side—8 inches square for a passage for the does. The lid should be made portable, so that it can be raised and you can then look into the box (from the top) and see how many young there are, and do this at any time you wish, without even handling the young at all, unless you want to.
OUTDOOR VS. INDOOR RABBITRIES
While it is true that rabbits can be raised successfully on the inside of buildings as well as in outside rabbitries, we believe that the outdoor raised rabbits on the whole make the best specimens, and are getting more into favor all the time. There is no question in our mind that the outdoor raised specimens are the most hardy—have a better coat—are much healthier—and remain so under all conditions. This same finding is also arrived at by many other breeders of experience who have raised rabbits on the inside and on the outside. Again, outdoor raised stock is all the better for sale purposes, as most people who start raising rabbits keep the stock on the outside, and, if they have outdoor raised stock to start in with, and keep the rabbits that way, they are in for success—whereas, if they buy rabbits that are raised on the inside, and keep the stock on the outside, there is every likeli-hood of the stock dying, thus a disappointed breeder who quits the rabbit business for good. However, we do not say that rabbits should not be raised indoors—but, if they are be sure to see that the stock has plenty of ventilation—that there are open windows and doors—and lots of fresh air—with the chance of sunshine able to peep in to greet the rabbits once in a while. They’ll appreciate it, sure enough as you will see them back in the rays of the little sunshine they are able to get that way. However, do not make the mistake of raising rabbits in an artificially heated building. If you do, you make hot-house stock out of them, and they will not survive in any other atmospheric condition. Taking all in all we are strong believers and advocates in the outdoor raised rabbits. This animal is a natural outdoor animal, anyway —and nature has endowed the rabbit with one of the best comforts there is to give warmth—that is fur. hence this hardy animal can stand all sorts of cold weather, and do well under such conditions. Of course, in extremely cold weather, you could place a nest-box in the hutch with some bedding (prairie-hay or some such stuff) so that the rabbit can get away from the extreme cold once in a while, and perhaps take its “forty wink's” when it feels like resting.
THE YARD SYSTEM OF RAISING RABBITS
There are a few breeders who raise rabbits by turning them loose
73
on the ground—which is commonly known as “Pastured Rabbits” or the “Yard System”. We do not think this is a successful method at all, and do not advise that stock be raised that way unless one is raising them for meat only. This is perhaps well in dry climates, but it is impractical and well nigh impossible to make a success of this system of rabbit raising where the country is damp, as your stock is bound to have colds—snuffles—pneumonia, and hosts of other trouble. Of course, it can be done and carried out successfully in dry climates— and those who are so located and wish to raise rabbits in quantity for meat purposes can do so, and stand a chance for success. However, even if you do adopt this system, we would suggest that you use slatted floors, so as to keep the rabbits from off the ground—these kind of floors also allow of waste to fall through on to the ground, thus keeping the rabbits free from becoming dirty and invested with filth and dirt which would germinate disease. To sum it up, we don’t advocate the Yard System unless you are truly converted to it, and are so established and located and really know how to take care of the stock under such difficult raising conditions.
Yard System
BUILT IN FEEDERS ARE LABOR AND FEED SAVERS
When building hutches, consider the point of having built in feed racks. A good one can be made by using two 10 inch boards between hutches cut a round hole in it near the top of each hutch, and on the inside provide a pocket made out of one inch mesh poultry wire. In this way, you can feed your stock hay or alfalfa from the outside— feeding two hutches at the same time, and it’s a feed saver too.
PROTECTING YOUR STOCK—GUARD FENCES IT HAS A TWO FOLD PURPOSE
Never raise rabbits unless you have them protected against dogs, who seem to be the natural enemies of rabbits. Many breeders have had the sad exprience of dogs visiting their rabbitries and losing valuable stock thereby. It is well to construct your hutches so that they are protected against dogs—and, as an extra precaution build a guard fence around the buildings that house your stock. This is an added expense,
74
of course, but it may mean the salvation of your rabbits— because dogs will ferret out rabbits, and unless you have your stock proof against dog invasion, you may regret it some day. “Prevention is better than cure” even if it means a little added expense.
Furthermore, a fence is quite useful and practical in the case of a rabbit getting out of the hutches, which will happen once in a while, but one forgetting to put over the fastener on the door, or for some other
cause. Thus, if your rabbit should get out while you are away, there is no fear of it being lost, as it is within the confines of the fence, and naturally, you will be able to catch it, whereas, if you don’t have a fence, you stand the chance of losing rabbits that accidently get out while you are absent from the rabbitry. Get the point? And again, a fence—while it may not be burglar proof, is at least a little less at-

tractive for thieves to enter your rabbitry, what say you? Did you ever consider these things that MIGHT happen in your rabbitry? They have with others, and maybe with you, unless you guard against such preventive losses.
IN CONCLUSION
Remember— good stock deserves good hutches. One is just as important as the other. If you have both, there is no reason in the world why you should not MAKE A SUCCESS OF THE RABBIT BUSINESS.

TIER HUTCHES
The above shows the Tier idea in hutches construction, many old time breeders are using these hutches, they should be roofed and the roof should cover the hutch as well as four feet in front of it, post should be set with wire protection against dogs.

DISEASES OF RABBITS
While none of us hope to have anything of the kind infest our rabbitry, at times these unwelcome visitors will appear and while by proper care and feeding we can keep them to a minimum, nevertheless, we should be prepared to handle them should they make their appearance.
First—Your hutches should be dry and comfortable, allowing plenty of room for each specimen and keeping same clean and sanitary at all times. By comfortable, I do not infer that they should be supplied with heat, but free from draughts, cold, damp winds, etc.
Good roomy hutches are very essential to the health of your stock and much better results and more profit will be derived from less stock in roomy comfortable quarters, than by trying to keep more than your space should permit by over-crowding.
Feed also plays an important part in keeping your stock healthy, and often over-feeding will bring as disasterous results as over-crowding.
Feed pure wholesome food and about what will be consumed in a reasonable length of time, and if food is found in the feed crocks at feeding time skip this individual until the next time. Following are the diseases most common among rabbits.
EAR CANKER
Ear canker is caused by one of the mange mites. It is infectious and fatal when neglected. Rabbits having ear mange, or “canker,’ shake their heads, flap their ears, and try to scratch inside their ears with their hind feet. Inspection shows the ear to be more or less covered by a scab This trouble can be corrected by softening the scab with soap and water and then applying a mixture of 20 parts olive oil and 1 part carbolic acid or cresol. Several treatments are necessary to effect a cure.
A Healthy Pair
INTESTINAL TROUBLES
Disorders of the digestive organs come from feeding young rabbits too freely on wet and juicy greens, or from too radically changing their diet. Intestinal troubles may usually be corrected by a change of feed. For constipation, rabbits should have more greens and bran mash, and, if possible, more exercise. Castor oil may be administered if necessary. In a case of diarrhoea, green feed should be entirely replaced by dry
81
hay and rolled oats or barley meal. Dandelion leaves are recommended as a remedy for a disease of the kidneys evidenced by reddish-colored urine.
MANGE
Mange is due to minute parasites which burrow into the skin, causing loss of hair and the formation of a scab. Treatment consists of cutting the hair around the scab, softening the scab with warm water and soap, and applying an ointment made by mixing 1 part sulphur with 3 parts pure lard. This ointment should be applied two or three times daily until a cure is effected. After handling a mangy animal, it is advisable to rub the hands with the ointment to prevent their becoming infected.
SLOBBERS
When rabbits eat too much green stuff they often have indigestion, accompanied by an excessive flow of saliva running down over the chin and throat. A cure can be effected by rubbing fine salt or alum over the wet parts or by bathing them with a solution of boracic acid after they have been washed and wiped, and withholding all food for 12 hours. Milk, grain mash, and rolled oats are suitable for animals re covering from an attack of slobbers. Rabbits fed judiciously are not likely to have this diesase.
CONSTIPATION
The cause is too well known to need any explanation. The remedy: Change method of feeding, give a little natural greens, and cut down on the amount of oats and dry feeds usually given, feed a good mash in which there is plenty of bran and a little salt. Give at evening one teaspoonful of castor oil, and if one dose is not sufficient repeat the next evening, although as a rule the first dose is sufficient. This I personally consider a better remedy than the use of Buckthorn.
SNUFFLES
Snuffles is a very contagious germ disease resembling catarrh, which in the acute form is quickly fatal, and in the chronic form, though less maligant, seems to be well-nigh incurable. The noticeable symptoms are weakness, sneezing, and running at the nose. The nasal secretions are at first watery, then thick. At the first indications of this disease, steps should be taken to segregate the sick from the healthy animals. If it is necessary that one keeper care for both the sick and the healthy, he should change his clothes and disinfect his hands before attending the latter.
It is better to kill rabbits having snuffles and to burn or deeply bury the carcasses than to risk their spreading the disease through a rabbitry. It should be remembered, however, that the early symptoms of the disease are much like those of a common cold, and while rabbits having these symptoms should be isolated immediately, extreme meas-ures should not be taken while there is any doubt as to the identity of the disease.
Affected animals should always be placed in dry, well-lighted, and well-ventilated hutches, yet where they will be protected from sudden changes of temperature. They should be fed with care; dusty hay should especially be avoided. Every possible precaution should be taken to keep the hutch clean and the feed and water dishes sterlized. If the malady turns out to be only a cold the animals that have been affected may be returned to their regular quarters when fully recovered. Hutches and buildings occupied by rabbits having snuffles must be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.
82
SORE EYES
Young rabbits are sometimes affected with sore eyes, a disease due entirely to unsanitary conditions, and not found in clean, well-ventilated hutches. When adverse conditions are removed, it can be cured by using a solution made by dissolving 1 teaspoon of boracic acid in one gill of boiling water, applied cold. Young rabbits should be inspected daily, and the boracic acid solution applied with a small swab of sterlized cotton at the first appearance of pus in their eyes.
sore; hocks
Sore hocks may be cured by treatment with a 1 per cent solution of cresol, comphorated oil. or iodoform, and by keeping the affected animals in clean dry earth, saw dust or straw, until the sores are healed. This treatment is suitable for other sores and also for wounds. The hind feet of rabbits kept on hard floors should be examined once a week. If they become bare, the soles should be greased daily with carbolated
oil. petrolatum, or mutton tallow to prevent sores.
VENT DISEASE
An infectious disease of the external genital organs, known as vent disease, may be recognized by a swelling of the affected parts and a discharge of mucus. Rabbits having the disease should be isolated in clean, dry hutches and treated until cured by bathing with a 2 per cent solution of copper sulphate or by applying zinc ointment or mercurial ointment.
PARALYSIS
Incurable, better kill the animal and relieve it of its suffering.
DIARRHOEA
Found mostly in youngsters and caused by numerous things mainly feeding too much greens, change in weather and also poor milk supply from the motherig doe. Remedy: Cut out all greens; do not give bran in mash, and place animal in good, dry, clean coop. I usually give animals one half teaspoon castor oil to clean out their systems before giving further treatmnet. Feed animals entirely on dry food, giving plenty of stale bread and if mash is used add to same a little flowers of sulphur and cream of tartar.
RABBIT MEAT-COOKING AND CANNING
By J. Hathaway Scharff
Meats which form one of the principal parts of our meals and furnish our body with proper nourishment to build us up and keep our strength along with other foods. Man is an animal and animals must eat; and although it is written of him, “Thou shalt not live by bread alone". There are several meats to use and the meats are being used up very fast too, and they are becoming less in supply on the markets as the population and advancement of civilization is becoming more in numbers than the supply can be raised or bred to stock up a substan-cial reserve supply. Poultry has become a large part of the meat supply. Why? Because the poultry breeders and dealers have organized and co-operated among themselves and have educated the public as to the usefulness and pleasure and profit that there is in chickens and have also kept up the supply strong enough to easily supply the demands as are made on them for their products.
83
Therefore, rabbits can and will become more used in the American homes and markets eventually as fast as the American breeders will organize and give out publicity and back it up with good clean rabbit meat at a fair profit to the breeder and consumer. Publicity and fair play
Dressed Rabbit
will play a large part in this work, each and every one of the rabbit breeders can do their share and thereby gain in the success that is bound to come to this wonderful little animal for food.
Seventy-five per cent of the average men and women of today have a misconception of the value of rabbits as to meat.
There are several successful breeders and Associations that are real valuable to the rabbit industry and are affiliated with the parent Association, The American Rabbit and Cavy Breeders Association, which is doing such wonderful work in bringing out the Government and Public realization that the rabbit is coming into its own. Let us all keep up the good work and success will be ours.
Many tasty and useful dishes can be made up from the rabbit.
Recipes made up for the preparation and cooking of rabbit meat are made up for the average family and are usually subject to change or corrections to suit your own taste as individual taste differs all over. But the recipes will give a foundation from which to work by. So being usually made up for the average small family and can be easily multiplied to suit the number of persons to be served, etc. All rabbits are about the same as far as the grain of the meat or the taste is concerned at a given age. Young rabbits from two to four months of age of course are better and more tender for frying, etc., than older ones. But older ones that are cooked properly and not too fast are very tasty. The older ones are very well suitable for salads and sandwiches, etc. An old rabbit roasted is fine, too.
Boost the rabbit for meat as much as possible, the Fur and Fancy ones will take care of themselves. Take a couple of good rabbit magazines and join your local Association as well as the American Rabbit and Cavy Breeders Association and you will do your share in giving the rabbit Publicity for this and further generations.

Selection, Killing and Preparation of Rabbit for Food
Selection: If to be used for food, a rabbit should be selected that is healthy and plump. For fry or broil a young one from six weeks to three months is the best age (any breed).
For Stew, Fricassee or Roast from four months up. The older it is the more it will need to be cooked.
If to be sold for meat, it is neat and more business like to take a piece of cheese cloth to wrap around the carcass, most large rabbitries do this, it costs about a cent or so per rabbit, but is well worth the investment, as it will make a good impression on the customer.
Whom to Sell To: There are several means and ways that rabbits can be marketed and sold. First usually the home trade is considered as that is the most profitable per pound. Then the Butcher’s by contract, Hotels, Restaurants, Industrial Cafeterias, Steamships, College and Camp Kitchens, etc.
If you only have a few rabbits you can build up a very profitable business with the home or family trade, if you have a large amount of meat stock on hand most of the year you can sell by contract to the larger consumers as spoken of above. You will have to do the work of getting up trade and holding it as it is like every other business, it will not grow by itself, but if you do try and build up a nice meat trade in any of the above ways you will be well repaid for the time you put into this business.
RECIPES AND WAYS OF COOKING RABBITS FOR FOOD
Herewith are a few ways and uses that can me made up with the meat of the useful animal called ’’Rabbit”. These recipes are for the average family, taste and customs vary all over, but they can be used as a foundation from which to work on.
Rabbit Sandwich: One of the best ways to prepare the meat for sandwiches, is to blanch a good sized rabbit. That is put in cold water until it comes to a boil. Pour off water. Cover over again with cold water with the following.
One six to ten or more pound rabbit (dressed) in six or eight pieces, salt and peper to taste, cup carrots
½ cup onion
½ cup celery
1 tomato or ½ cup tomato puree.
Let simmer on stove slowly until meat is ready to fall from the bone (If young rabbit is used be careful not to cook too long. Skim off the impurities as fast as they raise, when cooked as the above drain off stock, let meat stand until cool enough to handle, remove all meat from the bones in large pieces as possible, except hind legs which can be sliced with a knife, other parts can be diced with a knife.
Have the lettuce cleaned and in cold or iced water to make it crisp then butter bread and place a piece of lettuce on bread with some rabbit meat then another layer of lettuce then top piece of bread, mayonaise dressing can be added if desired. Season all sandwiches with salt and pepper also.
Same as above can be made adding Mayonaise with chopped celery, onion and permento or tomato sliced, wrap them up in waxed paper if they are made up ahead of time to be eaten as that keeps them fresh and tasty.
85
Rabbit Club Sandwich: Toast three pieces of bread nice and brown On first piece of toast place, lettuce leaves, sliced tomato, onion, sliced thin, little spoon of mayonaise dressing, place second piece of toast on another lettuce leaf sliced and chopped rabbit meat seasoned, two small slices of fried cooked bacon put a little more mayonaise dressing it desired, then the third piece of toast. Put a couple of tooth picks in the toast to help hold them together and put an olive on top of each tooth pick if desired, cut from one corner to other making the sandwich into two triangle pieces.
Plain Rabbit Salad: Three cups of cold diced rabbit meat.
One cup chopped celery.
One half cup chopped onion.
One half cup chopped green peppers.
Two tablespoons chopped parsley.
Two cups vinegar.
One cup salad or olive oil.
One tablespoon mustard.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Mix the above in a large bowl, serve on a plate or platter with plenty of lettuce leaves, mayonaise dressing can be served with it.
Potted Rabbit: Cut up in small pieces a large rabbit of six or eight pounds (dressed weight) put into a small bake pan with a little fat and the following:
One cup sliced carrots.
One cup onions sliced.
Two tomatoes sliced or a small can of tomatoes.
One teaspoon pickling spice, salt and pepper to taste.
Let this brown well in oven then add water enough to barely cover, stir around well, let bake until tender. Just before removing from oven, mix one cupful of flour with three cups of cold water strain this into pan and let cook about ten minutes stiring often. Remove from oven and serve with mashed potatoes if desired.
Rabbit Omlette. Plain: This is for a family of four to six. If smaller omelette is desired use less of each in proportion.
Heat a couple of ounces of butter in a frying pan, a French omelette pan is best that has round edges.
Mix the following:
Twelve eggs.
Two ounces bread crumbs (White bread).
Two cups diced rabbit meat.
One-fourth cup chopped onion.
Tablespoon chopped parsley.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Mix all the above, rapidly cook on stove, turning at intervals, place in oven for two minutes and remove to serve on plate.
French fried potatoes are nice with above.
Rabbit Soup: 1 cup concentrated rabbit broth
3 cups milk
4 tablespoons flour 1 teaspoon salt Few grains pepper
1 tablespoon onion juice
Add the milk to a broth made from rabbit bones (see rabbit pie
86

recipe) and season with onion juice, salt, pepper, and parsley or celery leaves if desired. When it is almost boiling, stir in carefully the flour which has been moistened with part of the cold milk or with water. Stir until the soup is of a creamy consistency and serve at once.
Fried Rabbit: Dress rabbit, cut in pieces, dredge with flour, salt
and pepper. Heat 4 tablespoons of fat in a frying pan, drop in the
rabbit, and fry slowly for 30 to 45 minutes, depending upon age of animal. Serve with a cream gravy, using the fat in which the rabbit was fried.
Fricassee of Rabbit; Skin, draw and wash rabbit and cut in into pieces. Dredge with flour, salt and pepper. Brown in 4 tablespoons of fat. Change from frying pan to stewpan, cover with boiling water and cook slowlv until tender. Remove meat from broth. Thicken broth
with 1 tablespoon of flour to 1 cup of broth. Boil vigorously for a
minute or two, then add dumplings; cover closely and allow to steam 15 to 20 minutes. Pour dumplings and gravy on hot serving platter.
Dumplings: 2 cups flour 4 teaspoons baking powder ½ teaspoon salt 1 cup milk
1 egg
2 tablespoons fat
Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in fat. Beat egg well and add milk. Combine the two mixtures. Drop by spoonfuls into slowly boiling gravy. Cover closely and allow to steam 15 to 20 minutes.
Spiced Rabbit: 1 rabbit 6 slices bacon
1 medium-sized onion
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper 1 tablespoon cloves Brown Sauce—
1 tablespoon sugar ½ cup water l tablespoon flour
Skin draw, and wash rabbit and cut it into pieces. Put it into stewpan with bacon cut into small pieces, onion cut fine, salt, pepper, and whole cloves in a bag. Cover with boiling water and cook slowly until tender.
Carmelize the sugar and add water thickened with flour well blended with 2 tablespoons of water. Pour this brown sauce over the spiced rabbit and allow the whole to simmer 2 hours.
Casserole Rabbit: 8 slices bacon
1 large rabbit cut into pieces
2 medium-sized potatoes 2 small onions
2 cups hot water 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Fry the bacon until 1ight brown and remove it from the fat. Use this bacon fat to brown the rabbit, which has been dipped in flour. Arrange in a casserole the pieces of rabbit, the strips of bacon, and slice onions and potatoes, and dredge lightly with flour. Pour water over all. Cover and Cook slowly 2 hours.
87
Bake Rabbit: 1 rabbit
3 cups cream or thin white sauce
6 slices bacon Flour for dredging
Skin, clean and wash the rabbit, and split it into two pieces, cut-ting along backbone. Rub with salt and a little pepper, place in a roasting pan, and dredge with flour. Lay strips of bacon across the rabbit. Pour over and around it 3 cups of the white sauce or 3 cups of cream. Bake 1½ hours, basting frequently. Serve hot with the cream gravy. The liver may be boiled until tender, chopped, and added to the gravy before serving.
Rabbit in Tomato Sauce: 2 tablespoons lard or butter
3 tablespoons flour
1½ cups tomato pulp and juice
1 large onion (chopped fine)
2 teaspoons salt
teaspoon pepper
3 cups water
1 large rabbit
Skin, cl an, and wash the rabbit and cut it into pieces at the joints. Dip in flour and brown in a little fat.
Put the lard or butter in a deep skillet or a roasting pan, and stir in the flour. Add the chopped onion and the tomato juice with the seasonings and the boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. When this is boiling put in the browned rabbit. Cover and let simmer on top of the stove or in the oven for one hour. The tomato sauce cooks down and gives a very good flavor to the rabbit.
CANNED RABBIT MEAT
In canning of rabbit meat it is advisable not to try it unless you are more or less familiar with the canning of fruits and vegetables, as this process requires more or less experience.
Recipe No. 1.
Take a nice plump rabbit of any age. Kill in usual manner, 1et it hang up to cool off for a while then wash in clean cool water. Cut into quarter sections or more depending on size of rabbit. The meat should be placed in cheese cloth and boil until the meat can be removed from the bones easily; remove from boiling liquid and remove meat from bones.
Pack closely into glass jars; fill jars with pot liquid, after it has has been concentrated one half; add a level teaspoon of salt per quart of meat, for seasoning; put rubbers and caps on jars into position, not tight. Sterilize for the length of time given below for the par
ticular type of outfit used:
Water bath, homemade or commercial................3 hours
Water seal, 214 degrees ..........................3 hours
Steam canner, 5 pounds pressure ..................1 hour
Steam canner, 10 to 15 pounds pressure.............1 hour
Remove jars: tighten covers; invert to cool, and test joints, wrap jars with paper to prevent bleaching.
Recipe No. 2.
Kill, clean and cut up, as above recipe; scald in boiling water and dip at once into cold water. Pack immediately into glass jars; fill
88
with boiling water; add level teaspoon of salt per quart, put rubbers and caps of jars into position, not tight. Sterilize for the length of time given below for the particular type of outfit used:
Water bath, homemade or commercial --------------3 hours
Water seal, 214 degrees..........................3 hours
Steam canner, 5 pounds pressure ........_........2 hours
Steam canner, 10 to 15 pounds pressure...........1 hour
Remove jars; tighten covers; invert to cool, and test joints. Wrap jars with paper to prevent bleaching.
Young Rabbit Meat—Fried.
After cleaning and preparing the rabbit for frying, season and fry as though preparing for serving directly on the table.
Cook until the meat is about three-fourths done. If a wholesome fat rabbit is used it will be a fine dish. When done about three-fourths, drop this hot, fried rabbit into a hot glass jar large enough to hold same without crowding. Pour liquid from pan or griddle into the jar over the rabbit. Place rubbers and cap of jars into postion, not tight. Sterilize for length of time given below for the particular type of out-
fit used:
Water bath, homemade or commercial 90 Minutes
Water seal, 214 degrees...................60 Minutes
Steam canner, 5 pounds pressure ......... 40 Minutes
Steam canner, 10 to 15 pounds pressure......30 Minutes
Tighten jars to test joints.
Should you be unsuccessful at first time, try again as it seems more complicated than it is. after you once do it you will want to can all your surplus rabbit meat as you need it.
SKINNING AND DRESSING RABBITS
By Harry G. Herrlein
It has been my desire for some time to state a few words to my fellow breeders on the matter of taking pelts and dressing the carcass for market. As the pioneer in establishing the largest Rabbit farm in the world I find it interesting to quote from my personal experience in handling over three thousand head of pedigreed stock at one time, housed in individual hutches.
In summing up an animal’s qualifications, the condition of the fur is an important factor. Let us assume that we are selecting an animal for market. Prime fur, sound health, perfect color and standard in size and weight constitutes the features to be given first consideration.
PRIMENESS—By running the finger lightly and slowly over the hair toward the head, the density of the fur at the base is seen. The hair at the base should be thick, running uniform over the entire pelt. A rubbed or empty spot on the pelt immediately lowers its value unless the rubbed spot appears near the edge. In that case it can easily be cut away.
MOULTING—This can easily be determined by the slight difference in color at various stages. As a rule the moult begins at the head and nape, gradually following over the back to the tail. The moult is easily followed as the new hair will have a tendency to show up brighter and at the junction of the new and old hair there is usually a break in the ticking resembling a line over the body.
89

COLOR—In the Chinchilla the body or base fur is slate blue, graduating into pale gray, pearl gray, white and finally tipped with silver black. The color effect in general should resemble as near as possible the real Chinchilla Lanigeria. A light, rusty or off-colored pelt is usually graded as a cull or throw-out. In the Havana a dark chocolate brown will be given preference in grading over the rusty-yellow-brown. The base fur of the Havana should show silver gray with a tint of brown, graduating into blue brown. In all solid colors, such as Blue Beveren, Blue Flemish, American Blue, Lilac, Gouda, Sitka, and all varieties of White, the color condition should be uniform without a break to indicate a moult spot.
PHYSICAL CONDITION—In safe guarding the future possibilities of the individual breeder and the industry itself, it is only fair that an animal with the slightest indication of unsound health should be passed up in selecting stock for market. A beginner will be more likely to pay no attention to a slight cold or a mild case of ear canker. This is dangerous business for all concerned.
Let us now assume that Mr. Bunny has come up to the foregoing Qualifications and some portion of the building is screened off against flies, and equipped with such minor facilities as a pair of heavy, headless nails sharpened to a point and driven into the wall about eight inches apart and about five and a half feet from the floor, fresh running water at hand, a small chopping block, pelt stretchers, a solution of one part alum, one part borax, one part sal-amoniac, two parts table salt thoroughly dissolved in water, and last a good sharp pelting knife.
KILLING—The most effective method for killing, is to take a firm hold of the hind legs with your left hand so that the head hangs down and the animals back is toward your right. Either with a blunt stick or the edge of your right hand, strike a hard blow behind the ears, breaking the neck if possible.
SKINNING—Hang the animal, back to the wall, on the two nails, by piercing the skin between the tendons and leg bone above the juncture of the hock and hind legs. Your knife can be none too sharp and pointed. The first incision should be made beginning as near to the foo das possible and cut downward and along the center of each leg. Both incisions of the legs should meet about one inch under the tail. It is assumed that the incisions are not deeper than the skin. Both hind legs of the skin are now free from the body except at the feet. Cut the leg bone as near to the foot as possible leaving the claws on the pelt. Both legs are now free. At the tail cut the pelt free from the body, leaving the tail on the pelt. Holding the skin of both legs and back in the left hand and cutting away the body tissues with your right, the pelt is drawn from the body in glove form, until the ears and front paws are reached. Cut the frontlegs as near to the foot as possible, leaving the claws on the pelt. The head is not removed until the pelt is completely drawn. Ears should be left on the pelt. You now have a pelt with all characteristics, only eyes, nose and mouth holes showing. It is put to one side until the dressing of the carcass is completed.
DRESSING—One incision, from tail to breast should suffice, exercising care against opening the intestines. Beginning at the tail, remove all loose particles except heart and liver. These should remain intact, removing the gall with care. The carcass is now placed on the block and with a small cleaver or sharp knife remove the head. Place the carcass back on a hook suspended from one hind leg and allow to bleed for about one half hour. In the meantime prepare your plain cold water for washing carcass. After the carcass has bled, wash it thoroughly and rinse several times. It should then be dried with a
91
clean cloth. In preparing for market, the carcass wrapped in waxed paper gives an attractive and appetizing appearance. In wrapping, place carcass on a table, back down, hind legs toward you on a piece of butcher twine about twelve inches long. The hind legs are forced in to the body and toward the neck, with precaution against tearing the flesh at the rump. Front legs straightened alongside the breast. The twine is brought around the shoulders and to the breast where all four legs are securely tied. For packing in quantity this method will be found most suitable.
STRETCHING AND DRYING—A wood pelt stretcher made of most any scrap material should measure about two feet long, or a stretcher made from No. 9 wire graduating from one end for a distance of eighteen inches and the balance of the six inches to a point. The wide end to measure nine inches. Furriers prefer the pelts stretched the long way, glove fashion. After the pelt is drawn taut over the board, hide side out, fasten the legs and tail with small nails or tacks to the board. It is now ready for the salt bath. With a stiff brush apply the foregoing solution thoroughly, covering only the surface of the hide. Care should be taken against allowing the solution to run beneath the hide through the end. It is not injurious to the fur but will take longer to dry properly. When hanging the pelt to dry, the head end of the pelt should be at the top, and select a cool dry place free from flies. After about the third day, it is well to lay the pelt while still on the stretcher, in the sun for several hours guarding against “blow-flies.” When satisfied that the pelt is thoroughly dry, remove from stretcher and beat it thoroughly with a thin stick or bamboo rod. This is done to remove all possible traces of “blow-fly” eggs. Using a stiff straw brush the pelt should be brushed thoroughly. It is now ready for storage or shipping to market. If stored on the breeders premises, precaution should be taken to select an air-tight box, lined with tar-paper. Each pelt is wrapped in newspaper and camphor flakes sprinkled in box between pelts.

RABBIT SKINS
DRESSING AND TANNING
Rabbit skins should always be saved, as they have a value, depending on their condition, and are regularly in demand. A skin may be prepared for market with less trouble than is required to bury it. It has only to be drawn, flesh side out, over a piece of thin board or No. 9 gauge galvanized wire, shaped to give it a uniform tension, and hung in a shady, well ventilated place, as under an open shed, until it becomes bone dry. Artificial heat should not be used to dry skins if it is possible to dry them otherwise before there is danger of their becoming sour or mouldy.
Usually after hanging a week or ten days skins may be removed from the stretchers.
Unless one is killing a great many rabbits, it is usually preferable to sell the dry skins to a local fur buyer, who will bale and ship for several producers. When there are a large number of skins they may be piled between upright scantlings as stove wood is piled and kept thus until enough have accumulated to make a bale. They should then be baled under lever or screw pressure, securely bound and covered with burlap before being shipped.
If rabbit skins are intended for home use and not for sale, they may be tanned by anyone. However, amateur tanners are seldom able to secure as good results as can professional fur dressers, for the pliability of a pelt depends largely upon the amount of labor put upon it, and the furrier does his labor by the aid of modern machinery.
For home tanning, skins should be taken off “open” instead of “cased”; or, if cased skins are to be tanned they may be split down the median line of the belly. The skin should be scraped on the flesh side to remove all adhering bits of flesh. Many amateur tanners are accustomed to use alum to fix the hair, but this is not recommended, as alum hardens the skin and adds to the labor required to make it pliable.
A good tanning liquor is composed of one quart of salt and one-half ounce of sulphuric acid to each gallon of water. As the acid corrodes metal, this liquid should be kept in a glass or a wooden container. Rabbit skins will be tanned in this mixture in from 3 to 4 days, but they may be kept in it for any length of time without injury.
When removed from the tanning liquor skins should be washed several times in soapy water, wrung as dry as possible, thoroughly rubbed on the flesh side with a cake of hard soap, folded in the middle lengthwise over a line, hair side out, and left to dry. When both outer surfaces are barely dry and the interior is still moist, the skins should be laid over a smooth, rounded board or plank and scraped on the flesh side with the edge of a worn flat file or other blunt-edged tool. In this way an inner layer of tissue is removed and the skins become nearly white in color. They should then be stretched, rubbed and twisted until quite dry. If parts of the skin are still hard or stiff it should be returned to the tanning solution and the process repeated until the entire skin is soft. Fresh butter or other animal fat worked into skins while they are warm and then worked out again in dry hardwood sawdust, or extracted by a hasty bath in gasoline, increases their softness Home-dressed skins should be matched for color before being made up into garments.

THE CAVY INDUSTRY
By FRED T. WITT, Cavy Judge.
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE CAVY
The Cavy, commonly known as “Guinea Pigs,’’ are not really pigs at all; their proper name is Cavy. They weigh two pounds or more when grown. They are born with their eyes open and fully furred and take food the same day. Cavies are very interesting and at the same time, profitable. Cavies are so interesting and fascinating that they appeal to anyone who sees them, and become more interesting when one learns of their usefulness and the profit that can be made raising them.

Cream Cavy HOUSING
Proper housing for cavies is very essential in order to be successful. The main thing is to have it free from drafts, dogs, rats, and cats. Nothing will kill a cavy quicker than draft from which it cannot get away. Drafts develop colds, and colds into pneumonia, and then your cavy is gone. Therefore, provide good housing, free from drafts, and plenty of sunshine. Clean hutches once a week. Disinfect hutches after cleaning once a week; use plenty of shavings or straw for bedding.
95
Cavies are clean and there is no odor connected with them. Cavies do best where temparature is even and does not fall below 40 degrees above zero, but will do best if above.
FEEDING
If Cavies are properly fed, you will have no trouble raising them successfully. Proper attention should be paid to the feeding. Be regular, not any old time you happen to think of them. They are just like us humans when meal time comes—they are waiting. Give your Cavies a virety of feed as they like a change as well as we do. During the summer feed them dandelions, lawn-clippings, clover, celery, alfalfa, Swiss-chard, and most any kind of grass or weeds, but avoid poisonous weeds. In addition to green food, they should have clean oats fed either whole or rolled. In winter feed hay, such as lafalfa, timothy, clover or Prairie hay and oats. Carrots, mangolds, beets, cabbage or sprouted oats is good green feed. They should have salt. They can do without water if plenty of roots are fed but should have water if fed on dry ration but do best with green food. A bran mash

of two parts bran and one part rolled oats, a little oil meal and salt to taste, just wet enough to mix so it will crumble. Alfalfa is the best hay as it builds bone and supplies lime which is necessary for health.
BREEDING
Careful atention should be paid to breeding. Do not breed cavies in poor condition. If in poor condition, inferior stock is the result. So make your start with a few or as many tested breeders of the best quality as you can afford, old enough to produce strength, size, and vigor whether the long, silky-haired Peruvian, the Rosetted curled Abyssinian, or sleek, smooth-coated English, Do not breed females under six months old and don’t use males under five months old. Cavies carry their young from sixty to seventy days; they produce from one to six young at a time; three is a good average.
When more females are in one hutch, one will help nurse the other’s young, but it is better to have each female separated if anyone has room; better cavies is the result. One male and five females make a good pen. When females show signs of being with young, separate from male. Leave female with young four or five weeks, then separate, placing females and males by themselves as they become sexually mature when six to seven weeks old. After weaning the young, give
96
the female a week's rest and then place them again with males. By so doing you can get four litters a year from each female without injuring her and your females will be good for four or five years or longer.

COMMERCIAL USE OF CAVIES Cavies are useful for medical and research work as well as for food, fur and fancy. Most laboratories use them from eight to twelve ounces in weight; others want them of larger size. The Cavy is known as the Human Life Saver because it gives its own life to let others live. Cavies are used in the testing and standardizing of serums and antitoxins; in the Wasserman test, in the preparation of Black leg, Tenan-tus, diptheria, yellow fever, and other serums, guinea pigs are needed. The Cavy, like all the other animals has its place in the show world. Every Live Stock Show has an exhibit of Cavies. They are on display from c oast to coast at the shows. A visit to one of these shows will convince one of the popularity of the Cavy and the demand that exists for fancy, well-bred Cavies.

DISEASES OF CAVIES
Cavies are really not subject to many diseases. Their susceptibility to ailment is closely related to quality, quantity and kind of food eaten. Feeding Cavies at irregular times and in improper amounts are generally the sources of the common causes of inflammation affecting the stomach digestive tract, from which losses among the animals may occur. Too sudden changes in temparature in localities where the freezing point varies considerably and aslo having insufficient and improper vent-lation are common causes of pneumonia. Direct drafts will also cause this disease. If you will take due precautions as to feeding, cleanliness of surroundings, pure water, abundant room and reasonable even temperature and proper ventilation, you will prevent almost any of the
97
diseases Cavies are subject to. Some authorities state that Cavies are practically immune from disease; however, this is not correct. In caring for your cavies they should not be subject to wet hutches or dampness, which is generally the common cause of fatalities among them.
The following diseases as listed with their symptoms and treatments, will be of great service in caring for the ailments of the cavies if followed carefully.
Colds and Pneumonia—Symptoms: Cavy breathes fast, sides work in and out, hair stands up, animal is in dumpish condition and sits in the corner of the hutch, eats but little. You can generally detect a cavy well developed with this disease by mucus rails obstructing the breathing of the animal, which causes a slight roaring.
Causes: Caused from drafts, sudden change in temperature, overfeeding of green food and keeping them in wet hutches. Sometimes contracted by Cavies being placed in a crowded express car and express piled on top of the boxes they are shipped in, causing the Cavies to sweat and become overheated. In this condition they are placed in cold express office where there is considerable draft. Cavies will contract an acute cold in six hours, which generally kills them inside of twelve hours. However, if they pass over the acute condition, which is up to twelve hours, then they pass into the chronic stage, and they will prolong a considerable time either showing improvement or death.
Treatment: Separate sick cavies from the healthy stock. Give one teaspoonful of castor oil at night after feeding. Begin next morning with Cavy Cold Cure placing in Cavies mouth with dropper morning and night until cured. Cut down on green food one-half.
Tortocolis—Symptoms: The animal holds head to one side and goes around in a circle.
Causes: Caused by drafts and catching cold, which affects the muscles of the neck, causing the muscles affected most to give the neck a curved appearance. Some animals recover from this although their neck is turned, they make very good breeders.
Treatment: Massage the neck of the animal with any good liniment and give Cavy Cold Cure as directions state morning and night. This generally relieves them and often cures.
Watery Eyes—Symptoms: Watery discharge from the eyes and sometimes from the nostrils, caused by a cold and sometimes the ammonia given off from unclean hutches. If caused from colds follow the same treatment as for colds and pneumonia.
Paralysis—Symptoms: Hind quarters drag, weak back, lower extremities of the cavy immovable. Caused from feeding too much alfalfa or over feeding them with green food; also damp hutches.
Treatment: Give cavy 18 drops of Cavy Cold Cure twice a day. Rub the limbs and loin with some good liniment. Feed carefully for a few days and they will generally recover.
This article will be continued next month. We are always glad to favor our brother cavy breeders in answering their questions if they will be so kind as to inclose four cents in stamps to cover all costs.
Lice—Sumptoms: Animal becomes thin, do not seem to eat, scratch themelves considerably, hair sometimes stands up and the cavy has sort of dull appearance. Always look your cavy over about once or twice a month for nits and lice, for these pests hinder the growth and breeding of the stock and keep them in a poor condition.
Treatment: If the weather Is warm, it is well that you dip them, and you can generally get an animal dip that is prepared especially
98
for this, as per directions from the manufacturer. You can dip the entire animal in the fluid and place him in the sun where it is warm so that he will dry rapidly, or near a stove if you wish. Dipping cavies really is the sure method of destroying lice. However, if the weather is to cold for dipping, then use a good lice powder and dust same into the hair of the cavy and about the hutch. Do not be afraid of using too much.
BREEDING CAVIES
By E. D. Corron, Colorado Springs, Colo.
Before commencing to get together your breeding stock, the beginner should carefully study the show reports in our fancier papers to see who are the successful breeders on the show bench and have stock for sale.
Having done this, the next thing to do is to decide which variety he wants to take up. In deciding on the variety, space, time and cash at disposal must be considered. The room required for 20 English will only accommodate 8 Peruvians. The time required to look after Peruvians is much greater than that needed to care for a stud of English.
In selecting stock a great point is the perfect healthfulness of each one selected. The future success of a caviary depends in a great measure on the condition of the original stock. It is impossible to breed exhibition stock from unhealthy parents. All that you do is to propagate disease and eventually death. A good test as to health and vigor is the condition of the eye and coat. A cavy in good health is sleek and glossy in coat, while the eyes are bold, bright and glistening. A healthy cavy is active and fast in its movements. An unhealthy cavy is dull in eye, open in coat and is slow and dull in its movements.
Having selected your cavies, they should be placed in nice, comfortable hutches, free from droughts and dampness, with about two inches of sawdust to absorb the moisture; thus the risks of colds, paralysis, rheumatism, etc., are considered reduced. One boar and three or four sows may be run together.
In selecting sows for breeding you should always give the preference to young sows as it is an acknowledged fact among many of our leading scientific naturalists, that the best results in breeding are obtained from young dams. In using young sows, care must be taken to have a boar at least 15 months old or over. This is most important. I am strictly opposed to the use of stock before the age of 7 months at the youngest.
If used earlier, the young are not so strong or so finely developed as when bred from matured specimens. Sulky disposed sows should not be chosen. The best mothers are found among those bright, happy individuals who know their masters step, listen for the sound of his voice, love the stroke of his hand and always greet his coming with joy and gladness being expressed by their coming to the front of the cage and trying to converse with you in their own language, doing their best to thank you for your attention and care bestowed upon them. Young cavies intended for breeding should be allowed plenty of room for exercise, so that when required for breeding their bodies are well developed and their constitution strong and healthy in every respect. Sows go with young 65 to 70 days. Some a little before and some a little later. Sows that are coming with young should be well fed. Personally, I like to feed soft food during this period; warm mashes composed of one part crushed oats, one part short, two parts good bran; should be fed every evening. In the morning good, sound, clean oats with a dish of water or milk should be given them.
Toward the close of the pregnacy period, a feed of warm bread and
99
milk should be given every morning. Plenty of green food or roots should be given during the whole period. Carrots are much better than beets at this time; they are sweeter and more conducive to a good milk flow. Breeding sows should never be without liquid or green food in their pens. About a week before you expect young the pens should be cleaned out thoroughly and well bedded with sawdust and bay. The young should run with their mother until five weeks old, and during the whole time they should have bread and milk, night and morning. At this time hay and green food should not be forgotten. A sufficient supply of both should be given twice a day. When the young are taken from their mother the sexes should be separated; it is not safe to leave them together after that age. If they are well developed (and they should be) they are very likely to get with young, and if that takes place all your labor to ever raise a good, strong show specimen has been in vain. The individuals that look like developing into winners should be kept separate from ordinary stock and fed on a more luxurious diet, size being a big factor on the show bench.
The young should be pushed as fast as possible from the day o' their birth until the date at which they make their “debut” on the show bench. They should be fed liberally upon bread and milk mashes, good sound oats, hay, carrots and green food. What you put into them at this age will be returned to you when you put them into the breeding pen.
It sometimes happens that a sow does not nurse her young well. This condition may arise from several causes. Should this occur the young should be transferred to another sow that has recently had young. In moving the young to the foster mother, you should see that she is a quiet lovable mother, and not liable to harm the little ones committed to her care.
Cavies, as a rule, are very good in this way; they have no objection to a stranger or two among their own babies. If a foster mother is not available, the young must be kept well supplied with new milk, thickened with fine oatmeal.
Although some fanciers run one boar with four or five sows all the time, I think it is not advisable to do so. When the sows are seen to be with young the boar should be removed. As to whether it is best to let the sows remain together is a much debated point. If the sows are littered together, it might be advantageous to do so, if they are peaceable bunch. But it sometimes happens that they are not; even some of the best are at this time inclined to be snappy and irritable. When this is the case, trouble naturally follows and in the scramble some of the young are apt to be injured. To avoid this, it is advisable to remove the sows to separate pens a week or so before the young are expected. It is a great advantage however, to have several sows lit-ered about the same time, for this reason; if one mother goes wrong in any way, her young may be divided among the others; or if one has a large litter and another a small litter,the mothering duties may be divided, to the benefit of all concerned. There has been much argument as to when is the best time to mate sows. One thing is certain. They will move rapidly, respond to the advantage of the boar a day or two after they have had their young than at any other time. This however, seems cruel and unnatural, to say nothing of the exhausting effect it must have on the sow’s condition and loss in size and stamina in her pregancy.. Personally I do not believe in such a practice of breeding. It is not right that while she is suckling one litter she should be called upon to carry another. Both the born and unborn must naturally suffer, to say nothing of the strain upon the mother.
If, however, she is well fed for four or five weeks after the young are taken from her, she will generally respond to the advances of the boar in a few days from the time of being introudced to him and breed strong, healthy young.
100
Three litters a year is the most I take from one sow, and oftimes only two. What you don’t get in numbers you get in quality.
One good one is much better than a dozen poor ones. In all your breeding operations, remember that the great essentials to success are cleanliness, purity of food, regularity in feeding, roomy and well-ventilated pens and the selection of strong, healthy stock. It is useless expecting to become a successful breeder unless these points are well observed. Neglect them and failure is sure to overtake you. Observe them and if you do not succeed you will at least have the satisfaction of knowing that failure has not come from any fault of your own.
This knowledge will spur you on to greater effects, and success is bound to sooner or later put you on the list with the best breeders.
ESTABLISHING A STRAIN
To the true fancier, breeding is the most enjoyable and interesting branch of his hobby. The thoughtful breeder will spend months, working out in his mind the different matings of his caviary. He pairs his stock as experience and knowledge prompts him. Sometimes the results are what he expects, at other times what he does not want. But it is not in vain as you are obtaining valuable information as you go along, and you will get there if you give it your best thought. In purchasing stock it is well to remember that the best is the cheapest. If you have $40. or $50. to put into cavies, buy a trio rather than a large number. Young fanciers too often make the mistake of purchasing quantity rather than quality. It is not absolutely necessary that the stock Cavies should be show cavies. It is a fact that most of our greatest winners are not bred from exhibition specimens, but from their close relatives, from this it does not follow that tip-top specimens are not good breeders, the reason that exhibition specimens do not, as a rule prove the best breeders is on account of the long journeys and banging about which they get in connection with their show life takes a great deal of their strength and enfeebles their nervous system. No such drawbacks effects their faulty brothers and sisters who are left at home to bloom unseen and build up their constitution and transmit it to their young. The individual that goes here and there purchasing his stock will never make a successful breeder, as every new cross he makes only puts him back instead of helping him to reach the goal of perfection. A great many beginners go their own way and select their own stock instead of seeking the advice of the fancier that knows. However, there are some who like to select their own cavies from the pure love of the thing. To them a few words of advice may not be out of place. There is a great deal in the judicious mating of a pair of cavies, far more than meets the eye. In mating we want not only to pair two animals together, but they want to be so mated that the good and bad points of each, will blend into one, if not perfect, almost, whole. It is not simply putting a male and female together. Mating animals of any kind successfully is the outcome of long years of actual experience. Our most successful breeders mate their stock to produce results which experience has taught them they may expect. They breed for results and generally get them. They weigh up carefully all the little differences in shape, size, coat, color, etc., and then pair them so as to get as many good points, and as few bad ones as possible. They do not always get what they want, owing to nature “butting in” and causing them to throw back to some ill-formed ancestor. Although the power of reversion is so strong, it must not be forgotten that like produces like, especially when a certain line of breeding is followed from year to year. This is how the careful breeders get satisfactory results. It sometimes happens that you will find poor looking animals matched together producing first class specimens. Why is this? Knowledge and experience taught him and he put it to work. The sire generally speaking, will influence color and
101
coat, while the dam will control constitution, size and shape of body, these rules however, are open to many exceptions, due to special prepotency on the part of one or the other, or when there is much difference in the ages. Some Cavies mark their young with personal features that seem fixed in the blood so strongly as to overcome all opposing forces. Sometimes they will breed qualities that lie latent, and are not visible in the immediate parent. Properties which you have to go back three or four generations to find. In mating it is not wise to put together two, possessing the same faults, there are times when it is not needful to stick rigidly to this, but as a general principle it is a good one to work on. The question of relative age is another factor that often puts to naught, a carefully thought out mating. Given two cavies of apparently equal strength and vigor, the younger will usually have more than his or her half the say as to what will appear in the young. At times the result seems simply ruled by the law of average, and a vigorous yearling throws stock that show no points in common with a mate three or four times as old. Stranger still, some aged Cavies duplicate excellent qualities, even if paired to younger ones of less merit. Most successful matings consist in systematically setting weak points against strong ones and trying to produce the best properties of the parents upon one or more of the young. All around quality is what is desired in the high class exhibition specimen. This can best be obtained by building up a little at a time, here a little, there a little. It is impossible to get all the properties at once. And he who expects to do so will meet with disappointment. The true breeder seeks to improve his stock year by year in some particular point, by each breeding, and he goes on in this way each season until he at last possesses Cavies that can hold their own with the best of the fancy. If, in his first year, the young beginners has managed to breed a few nice youngsters, he should, if possible ask the advice of an older fancier as to their mating for the second year. If this cannot be and the parents have not been closely related, he should breed some of the young back to their sire and dam. This line, or in-breeding, some argue, is unnatural. They say it weakens the constitution, breeds disease and is the forerunner of all ills. I do not believe it. Its use is correct and proper, but its abuse does mean ruination and in quick order. It must not be carried too far, but carried out on careful lines, with patience and care it is the sure road to the breeding of winners that you will not be ashamed of. Some breeders are so constituted that they must carry every thing to excess. In their hands in-breeding will result in everything but what they are after. If the old original dam is of correct shape, color and coat, he should pair her to the one particular son most like her father. And the old sire should be mated with the daughter which is most like the mother. Such mating as this is simply rolling all the good points of your original stock together. It sometimes happens that a breeder puts together two animals which excel in some particular point, yet not one of their young are as high in quality as he expected. This often proves a stumbling-block to the novice as he has imagined that two Cavies extra good in some points would breed marvels in that respect. He finds it is not so, and in his disappointment discards both old and young, and starts afresh. He throws away valuable animals. The old breeder does not act thus, he knows that the point he is after are in the young, altho it has not come out at the first mating. His plan is the opposite. He pairs the sire to one of his daughters, and the dam to one of her sons, the others to brother and sister, and the next year doubtless puts him a long way up the ladder he is climbing. This is one of the points where experience often keeps a breeder from making a false step. Of course this close breeding must not be continued or disaster swift and sure will overtake you. Before I leave this question of establishing a strain I must strongly urge upon the breeder the necessity of keeping his best sows. Some think more of their boars than they do of the sows. In my judgment this is a big mistake. Over and over again you will
102
find breeders spending big money on high class boars and mating them with inferior sows. I fully believe that good dams have far more to do with the success of a strain, than good sires. Type comes from the mother and the fancier who is continually introducing strange dams into his caviary will never have a type of his own. We want cavies of a fixed type, no matter what variety we are breeding. Individual excellence and ancestry are the two most important considerations in breeding them. Individual merit alone cannot be relied upon always, for from animals of nearly perfect standard requirements we often get many poor specimens. A chance good cavy with poor breeding behind him, is one which should never be used, on the other hand a moderate-looking cavy whose lineage is good, will in most cases, prove a valuable breeder. You should keep a careful record of the breeding of your stock, and then you know the relationship of any pair you wish to put together. Let me say again never part with your best sows. And keep a faithful record of your breeding. If you act on these lines you will in a few years establish a strain that will bring you not only fame but a great deal of pleasure.

Being a breeder of Cavies for the past twenty-one years I think I have used most every kind and type of hutches, ranging from a store box with wire netting nailed on the front, to large pen in the yard enclosed with wire netting. I have also used pens in the basement, but
103
the picture above shows an interior view of one room of my cavy house which I believe to be the most convenient of any that I have ever seen.
This building, which I designed and built a few years ago, is of the following dimensions. Length, 64 ft., width, 10 ft., height in front, 12 ft. and height at back, 10 ft. The roof slants to the north and has a 2 ft slope. On the front and both ends I used drop siding, while on the back I used shiplap and covered it with rubberoid roofing with all seams sealed tight. The roof, which extends 1 ft. over on each side, is also made of shiplap covered with rubberoid roofing. The entire floor is of concrete, however, in a cold climate I would suggest that the floor be made of good flooring lumber with the exception of the feed room, which should be of concrete.
The interior of this building consists of two 27 ft. rooms, one at each end of the building, leaving a 10 ft. room in the center for a feed room. A large door in the end of each room and one in the front of the feed room allows good ventilation from any direction.
ft. above the floor is a loft floor of good flooring lunmber. This makes a loft 4½ ft. high for hay and several tons can be stored there. This loft breaks the force of the hot sun in the summer and helps to keep it warmer in the winter. The loft floor opens down into the feed room, making it very handy to get hay down, while the hay may be stored in at a door at either end of the loft.
Now the picture above shows the interior of one of the two 27 ft. breeding rooms. The hutches are at the back and are 3 ft. deep, giving 7 ft. aisle in front where I use a two wheel cart that carries a bale of hay and a small feed box. The front of each of these rooms has four large windows 2½ by 3½ ft. These windows provide plenty of sun light and fresh air.
The hutches are 3 ft. square and 18 inches high. There are four rows of hutches nine in each row, making thirty-six hutches in the room. The floor of the bottom row of hutches is 14 inches above the floor of the room, making it easy to reach any part of the hutch without getting down on the floor. To reach the top row of hutches I use a small set of steps which may be moved along on the floor to any hutch you wish. The hutch floors are all made of good flooring lumber fit tight. The doors are full size 3 ft. long and 18 inches high, made of a 1 by 4 on the bottom and 1 by 2 on the top and ends. The doors are covered with 1 inch mesh wire netting and swing by hinges on the end and fastened with a small hook at the other end.
The partitions between the hutches are another feature of this building. They are made just the same as the doors, a 1 by 4 at the bottom and a 1 by 2 at the top and ends, and are covered with 1 inch mesh wire netting for summer, while in winter I insert a heavy piece of cardboard in the frame against the wire netting making it a solid partition. These partitions are fastened in place by a cleat at the back and a button at the front edge, and may be removed at any time by turning the button at the front edge and slipping the partition out.
By these removable partitions any sized hutch may be made in a few minutes, or they may all be removed and have one long hutch 3 ft. wide by 27 ft. long with nine door in the front.
For the top row r made nine extra partitions and by putting two strips of quarter round 1 inch apart on the floor from the front edge to the back of the hutch I can slip in these extra partitions making eighteen hutches 1½ by 3 ft. deep in the row. In these I place my extra males while not in breeding pens.
This room will easily accomodate 250 matured Cavies.

Ranching Fur-Bearing Animals
BY HARRY J. LaDUE Editor—American Fox and Fur Farmer
Valuable fur-bearing animals are decreasing rapidly in the wild, due to excessive trapping, destruction of forests, drainage of marshes and lowlands and increasing cultivation of the soil. Fur garments have always been in demand by mankind, and so long as Dame Fashion so decrees, and as long as people living in cold or temperate climates need proection from the cold, that demand will probably exist.
The rapid increase in population, the growing use of the automobile and the habit of living outdoors have not only made furs a necessity but have contributed to their scarcity. At the present time, the demand exceeds the supply, and the world is being combed in a vain endeavor to maintain the supply. There seems to be but one solution of the problem. That is the domestication and rearing of fur-bearing animals in captivity.
Fur ranching has attracted men from a wide field. Trappers, furriers, farmers, professional and business men, women and, in fact, persons from every walk of life have ventured into this new and fascinating outdoor pursuit. Since the world war, the industry has progressed with leaps and bounds in Canada and the United States. A deep interest has also developed in foreign countries and fur ranches stocked with North American fur animals are now in operation in England, Scotland, Norway, Sweden, Russia, Germany, Switzerland, France, Japan. Austria and Czheko Slovakia.
The most popular fur naimal amongst the breeders is the silver fox. Other animals have not been neglected however, and many ranches devoted to the rearing of mink, muskrat, beaver, marten, fisher, raccoon and skunk are in operation Beaver are being ranched in a semi-wild state in ponds and streams surrouded with retaining fences. Marten and fisher have presented a problem but there are a few breeders who have been highly successful propagating them in captivity.
This interesting North American fur-bearer has won world-wild fame in the last decade. It possesses a fairly tough hide and a soft, silky underfur that lends itself admirably to the new art of fur dressing and dyeing, It is probably the most widely used fur in the world and millions of dollars are invested in dyeing, dressing and tailoring plants devoted exclusively to the pelt product of the muskrat. With this increased popularity and demand has come a very noticeable reduction of the muskrat in the wild. This fact together with the utility of the muskrat pelt offers a splendid opportunity to the fur rancher.

Trappers are yearly reducing the available supply of wild fur-bearing animals.
Muskrat
105


A muskrat fence should have an over-hang on the the inside of five inches and on the outside of seven inches.

Muskrat farming is really a mis-nomer. It would be impracticable to raise this fur-bearer in close confinement as they require considerable range, a large quantity and variety of water plants, marshy and lake environment and must be raised in large numbers to insure profitable returns. Successful muskrat farming therefore, consists of guarding and caring for the animals in their natural environment, the preserva-tion of a breeding nucleus and the pelting of the surplus.
Profitable returns from muskrat farming depend principally upon the area of marshy, shallow lakes available for the use of the prospec-tive fur farmer.
Absolute control of your stock can be obtained by erecting a three or four foot small mesh wire around the marsh. This fence should be set in a plow furrow and several rods back from the shore, so as to give the animals the ready access to the roots and plant life surrounding tb marsh. Muskrats dig innumerable burrows into lake and marsh bant and in the nests at the end of these burrow's the young are usually born.
If a large number of muskrats are reared in a small marsh the natural food supply will have to be augmented by coarse vegetables. The important natural root plants should be studied and replaced when-ever possible. Cattails, sweet flag, lilies, rushes and other aqua plants can be easily ransplanted into your marsh, provided a little stud is given to their seeding and germinating habits.
It should be the aim of the muskrat farmer to gradually reduce the low grade animals in a marsh and to replace them with healthy, large. dark specimens. The most valuable pelts in North America come from Atlantic coast salt water marshes along the shores of New Jersey, Mary-land, Virginia and North Carolina, The muskrats from this region ar small but possess a pelage, almost black in color, that command to prices in the fur marts. Next in value may be listed the muskrats from Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan. This muskrat is larger and posses ses a rich dark brown pelage.
Raccoon
The material for the popular coon skin coats can be reared in small patch of woodland through which a brook runs or on the border of a marsh or lake. Motoring and outdoor enthusiasts have found the pelt of this animal peculiarly adapted to their requirements.
The northern raccoon is by far the most valuable, possessing, as rule, a rich, mahogany-colored pelt hat usually brings top prices in t fur market. There is a black color phase of the ordinary raccoon that has been highly developed by a few breeders and sold as black raccoon.
Raccoons breed once a year and the young average from three
106
six. They are omnivorous by nature and can be fed a variety of food. Fresh meat, frogs, fish, fruits, cornmeal and eggs are eaten with avidity. As a rule they are economical feeders and may be especially considered so when the fact is taken into consideraion that they hibernate for long periods during the winter months. Their diet just prior to the advent of cold weather should provide the necessary elements to carry them through the winter.
Skunk
One fur-bearer whose pelt has gained favor in late years is the skunk. High prices together with ignorance on the part of the public will undoubtedly operate to seriously reduce the wild supply in the future. The average farmer looks on the skunk as a pestiferous species of vermin responsible for bad odors and raided chicken coops. As a matter of fact the skunk is an important economic asset to the farm. His principle food consists of injurious insects, such as crickets, grasshoppers, beetles, grubs, worms, bugs of all varieties, frogs and wild vegetation. A goodly percentage of poultry depredations if run to earth can be traced to the weasel, mink and fox.
The skunk easily adapts itself to domestication, given proper quarters and food, and it develops into a most interesting animal in captivity, losing much of its objectionable characteristics. Some breeders remove the scent sac from young skunks while others claim that if the animals are handled gently this is entirely unnecessary.
There is no reason why domesticated skunks cannot be raised in such a manner as to produce the finest grade pelts. In order to accomplish this the breeder must 1ay out his pens with care and forethought. They must include well drained lands with both sunny and open places as well as underbrush and timber and the water supply must be pure and fresh. In fact, if a pond is included in the runs so much the better. The insect life and the frogs, snails, etc., found around marsh borders form an important and highly necessary part of the skunk’s diet.
Insects are featured so strongly on the animal’s bill of fare in the wild that there is no doubt that the lack of them is largely responsible for the lusterless pelts produced on some fur farms. An eastern breeder has adopted the ingenius scheme of stringing several strong electric lights a few inches above the ground throughout his pens The lights are turned on for a period every night during the summer and attract a myriad of insects, great number of which perish underneath the light, thus supplying an ample quantity of natural skunk food.
Skunks breed usually in March and April, and the young, numbering from six to twelve in a litter, are born in May or June. They mature rapidly and have prime fur in December.
Mink
The mink has been successfully reared in captivity. The pelage of the mink is dense and when prepared by the furrier soft and beautiful in color. This fur is somewhat subject to the whims of fashion, still as evidenced by average prices quoted, it manages to hold its own. Mink pelts are especially adapted for use in making up small neckpieces so poplar amongst the motoring public. They are also made up into beautiful capes and wraps
Water is a prime necessity on a mink ranch; therefore land through which a small brook flows or a site along a lake or pond will prove the most suitable. The pens should be well shaded by trees and shrubs, as protection from a blistering sun is necessary in order to produce dark, lustrous fur.
107
Mink revel in fresh-fallen snow.
Mink thrive on a diet of bread and milk, fresh meat, fish and frogs. Milk should be a prominent feature of the diet of females with young. In addition to cheap fresh meats and fish some breeders have fed English sparrows and tame or wild rabbits. The fur farmer raising natural meat eaters can economize on meat rations by raising rabbits for that purpose.
Modern Type Minkery. Outside runs and nest boxes under cover.
Mink raise one litter of young a year, consisting of five young on the average. The parents require careful handling during the breeding and rearing season. The male shows cannibalistic; tendencies toward his offspring and must be separated from his family. Likewise the females must be separated from each other lest they kill their respec-tive young.
Silver, Blue and Cross Fox
The fox is being reared in all its color phases. The most valuable is the silver fox, that rare, aristocrat of the fox family that has been so highly developed through the selective breeding of the descendants of wild foxes captured by the early pioneers in the fox ranching industry.
The pioneers were faced with seemingly insurmountable obstacles. In the first place they were dealing with a wild, furtive and somewhat savage animal. In the second place they were faced with the genetic problems surrounding the retention of the rare silver phase. It took
108

long, tedious years but the concentrating of many brilliant minds soon solved the major problems.
That the industry survived this period together with a wild-cat era, during which live foxes sold for fabulous sums, furnishes good proof of its stability. Since the world war progress has been made at an astonishing rate. The care and housing of foxes has been practically standardized. The breeders have been stimulated through keen competition in the pelt markets and at live fox shows to constantly improve the silver fox pelt and are now on the road to perfection in this art.
There are but two accredited and recognized fox herds in the world today. The Canadian Government has provided a Canadian National Record for foxes, under the Canadian National Live Stock Records. Every silver fox offered for sale by members of the Canadian National Silver Fox Breeders’ Association is inspected and passed by officials of the Canadian Department of Agriculture and must pass this inspection to be eligible for registration.
During the formative period in the United States two breeders’ associations sprung up. Each maintained a sparate herd book. In 1924 these two associations amalgamated and formed the American National Fox Breeders’ Association. This association is recognized by the Canadian Government and as far as possible by the U. S. Department of Agriculture. It is a mutual, non-profit sharing association, owned, controlled and operated by its members and was organized to establish and maintain a herd book of registration for the protection of fox breeders in recording and determining the breeding, blood-lines and pedigrees of the fox. This association has enjoyed a phenomenal growth and most of the fox breeders in the United States today are members and breed and sell only pedigreed, registered breeding stock.
The blue fox is a color phase of the Arctic or white fox and in this particular occupies the same relative position as the silver fox does to the red. Isolation on Alaskan coastal islands together with artificial selection by natives and white fur ranchers is largely responsible for the development of a distinct blue fox type.
So rapid has been the development of interest in this valuable little fur-bearer that practically every island off the Alaskan cost can now boast of a fox ranch. On most of these islands the animals are permitted to roam at large and their breeding and the rearing of young takes place under natural conditions.
109
Within the last few years, however, many ranchers have experimented with and succeeded in propagating blue foxes in individual pens. As a result the blue is now reared in most of the Pacific Northwest states and numerous ranches devoted to this phase are scattered throughout the northern tier of states.

The blue fox is noted for its prolificness, litters from five to eleven. This fox is quite docile, hardy and once acclimated an extremely profitable fur animal to rear in close confinement.

The cross fox is a beautiful animal and is easily produced by crossing the silver phase with the ordinary red. Many ranchers are raising cross faxes for their pelts and the product finds a ready and profitable market. There is also considerable demand for breeding stock. Only silver and blue foxes are registered in the herd books of the American National Fox Breeders’ Association.

CHINCHILLA ANIMAL (LANGERI)
Another small fur bearing animal of much value has been added
to our list and we are pleased to produce herewith a likness of two of
these little animals so that our members can have an idea of how they look for there has been very few photos published of them to date.
The original Chinchilla (Langeri) animal is nearly extinct and valued so highly in its native country, South America that the Govern-ment has forbid the exporting of them and it is almost impossible to secure any of their skins.
Mr. P. McKnab who has charge of the dressmaking department
of Marshall and Fields Great Store at Chicago, advises the writer
that there has been a standing order on file with a prominent New York Furrier for over two years for a coat made from Chinchilla skins at the price of $50,000.00 but as yet there has not been enough of these skins secured to make the garment.
These little animals can be domesticated and some are being bred in captivity in England but I know of only one breeder in the U. S. and this party is located in Los Angeles. California and at present time has about 100 head, all healthy and breeding and I rather envied this gentleman of his little herd when I saw them for he certainly has a “Gold Mine” in his chinchillas. I admire him though for he spent considerable time and money in getting his start having spent two years in South America and with the help of natives succeeded in getting his start and getting them to the U. S. and acclimated after losing some of the original stock. I presume in a few years chinchilla farms will be as numerous as our rabbit and fox farms.
The length of this little animal is about 9 inches and tail about 5 inches, its proportions close set and limbs rather short. It lives in burrows in its native country and feeds on roots and nuts of various kinds and is very gentle.
DESCRIPTION

RAT FARMING
Philadelphia’s Wister Institute, part of the University of Pennsylvania, specializes in breeding white rats, cousin of the gray rat, not ordinary sewer rats, that carried plague.
The rats live and breed in a special rat establishment costing $60,000 and are shipped to scientific bodies all over the world, including Japan, that scientists may work on “standardized rats,” and compare results satisfactorily.
The rats live, die and submit to disease infection, knowing as little as human beings about the why or wherefore. Little do they dream that their tissues, structure, growth and digestive processes happen to resemble those of men, and that they breed, live, die only to save a higher race from death. Even so, they know as much as we do about primal causes and final purposes.
Many do not realize the good these animals do for the human race and I am pleased to give my method of care and feeding.
I find sugar cases make ideal breeding cages for Rats, and I make them on the same design as the rabbit hutch. I make the front to take out in one piece, the bottom board being 4 in. to 5 in. deep, and to this is hinged a framework 2 x ½ in., which is covered with perforated tin or zinc, which I consider is warmer than wire netting. When complete, the whole can be taken out for cleaning, also at feeding time the bottom board keeps the youngsters from falling out of the box. I fix a shelf 4 inches wide across the box at the back, about 4 inches from top. This I find gives the stock exercise, also they like to lie on it when resting.
I also put in a few ventilation holes, inches in diameter, covered with zinc, they being at the back, near the top. These give the air a free circulation. I do not favor nest boxes, for the reason that if there is a scarcity of ventilation the Rats’ breath condenses, with the result the bedding becomes wet, and this causes rough ears and tails; for this reason also, I do not give any bedding unless the doe is ready to kindle. I give plenty of clean dry sawdust and clean out twice a week. Where there is bedding given I find the Rats carry all their soft food into this and it becomes wet, the result being rough ears and tail. Another cause of rough ears is the want of cooling food for the blood, the blood
112
being overheated. Give plenty of green food, dandeloins, carrots, turnips, broccoli leaves, new grass, any of which are readily eaten up and the Rats seem to enjoy them. When such are not available, a little flowers of sulphur mixed in the soft food is very beneficial.
I feed my Rats exactly the same as my Mice, viz., best whole white oats and wheat equal parts for corn, stale bread soaked in cold water, then squeeze out most of the water and dry off with a little Poultry Meal, making it crumbly moist and not too sticky, or it soon becomes sour, and injurious if eaten. There is nothing like handling the stock. I handle the babies as soon as they run about, and they soon get to know that I do not intend to do them any harm. This gains their confidence, with the result that they look for it each feeding time and never get wild or shy. Where many make the mistake, is that they put them in a box and then throw in the food and bang the door to lest they should escape. The result is that a few days the Rats, instead of looking for you and hearing your cherry voice at feeding time, dash about and try to get as far away as possible; thus the budding novice gets fed up and clears out, the fault being all his own, through mismanagement.
Visitors who see my stock invariably say: “Oh! how beautifully clean and tame they are, I thought they were like the wild rats.” The chief point to watch is cleanliness, free from damp and draught, and not kept in too exposed a position. If the Rats should develop a slight cold, which is noticed by the peculiar whistling and wheezing, especially in damp, foggy weather, a few drops of eucalyptus oil and spirits of camphor, mixed and put in the corners of the box, will soon effect a cure. Should the rough ears and tails turn up, make an ointment from a bit of leaf fat (pork) without salt, rendered down and dried off with a little flowers of sulphur. A few dressings will effect a cure, and if they eat any of it, it will do them no harm. I find rats very immune from disease, and the death rate is not one per cent.
One very good feature is you can keep any number of adult bucks together as they will agree, and you can add to or reduce the number any time, and they do not fight. This also applies to the does, whereas with adult buck Mice it is murder to put strange adults together. A Rat can be trained by a child to become a most interesting and intelligent pet, to my personal knowledge.
MICE FARMING
Raising Mice for the fancy as well as commercial purposes can be made a paying proposition and there is a great demand for them for experimental work in laboratories at present, and considering space required are profitable.
Another advantage over other animals is that Mice can be kept almost anywhere, so long as they are free from draught, which is their worst enemy. If you have an outhouse of any description, so much the better; if not, they can be kept in the cellar, the attic, a spare bedroom, or even in the coal-place. When the prospective breeder has settled where he or she is going to keep the stock, he must decide as to the kind of breeding cage he is going to use. I favour a box 18 ins. long, 9 ins. deep, and 9 ins. wide, with a partition 6 ins. from one end to provide a nest box, and two holes cut in the lid, as per sketch, for ventilation, and covered with gauze.
It is not even essential to go to such an expense as this, for a common dry soap box with lid, a hole cut in each end and covered with
113

gauze, and partitioned for nest box, will do just as well, although it does not look so workmanlike.
The care of your stock is very simple, but they must receive regular attention. Clean the cages and give fresh hay at least once every week, twice if possible. Feed regularly, as the Mice get to know when they should be fed, and regular feeding goes a long way towards keeping them in condition. It does not really matter whether you feed twice or once daily, but if you feed twice give them good sound oats and a little canary or millet seed at morning, and at night a little soaked bread, squeezed almost dry. If you are out at business all day, you may feed them at night only, giving them all their food at one time, but which ever way you start, continue in the same way.
Don’t keep too many Mice in one cage, as this not only causes a disagreeable smell, but soon puts the Mice out of condition. An adult buck a d two does are quite sufficient for a cage of the size mentioned above. When the does show signs of pregnancy take the buck away, and see that the does have an extra bit of soft food when you feed them. About five or six days after the youngsters arrive, they may be examined, and their number reduced to four or five i order that they may obtain proper nourishment from the mother, otherwise they will be weaklings when they mature and of very little use for breeding. Don’t in-breed too much, as this tends to reduce the size and quality of the stock.

NOTE—The color of the markings should be a rich, velvety black. The more dense the color the better. The markings should be on the nose ears, feet and tail. The nose marking should be large and well rounded. It should come well up to the face, between the eyes, and be clean cut and distinct all around. It should be dense all over. Many fail on the sides of the nose marking, the color being weak on the edges. The ears should be entirely black and well covered with fur. They should be short and neat, tapering to the tips. They should be set fairly close together, and not carried apart. The fore feet should be black right to the top of the legs and they should be cut clean there. The higher the markings comes up the leg the better. The same remarks apply to the hind feet. The tail should also be black. The eye required is a pink one, as bright and bold as possible, with no smut or dirty color of hair around the eye.
In shape, the Himalayan should be snaky. A short, cobby rabbit is not desirable. At the same time, a big specimen is not the thing to aim for. While it must be snaky, it should also be small and neat. The long, snaky bodied rabbit shows its markings off to much greater advantage than does a short, cobby one. The coat is white except on the markings, and it must be pure in color and free from stains of any description.

New Zealands
Standard as adopted by The American Federation of New Zealand
Breeders
The foundation of a breed is its type, and the basis of type con siders both size and shape as being its components.
THE IDEAL FOR NEW ZEALAND RED TYPE
The ideal of the New Zealand type has been that of a specimen presenting a type that is a medium between that of the Flemish Giants on the one side and the Rufus Red Belgian on the other side.
In this conception the extreme raciness of the Rufus Red as well as its fineness of bone are undesirable and to be eliminated. On the other side the extreme massiveness and length of the Flemish Giant is undesirable and to be eliminated.
In general appearance the ideal type New Zealand should present a rather close coupled, compact frame that is well filled and free from over fatness.
The application of this conception for the specimen as a whole and for its parts, by use of the various measurements laid down in this text and shown in the drawings published in connection herewith.
GENERAL TYPE LENGTH
Ideal total length of rabbit from end of nose to base of tail to be 19½ inches for does and 18½ inches for bucks; said line to be determined by caliper measurement.
COLOR
The Ideal New Zealand Red Color is here set forth and described as being a rich reddish buff, as deep in tone as possible, but not so deep as to lose the buff element and become a deep mahogany red.
As a fine analogy in animal life, to be used as a basis of comparison, the sorrel red horse is offered as nature’s nearest likeness.
In its general appearance this color scheme should be free from stray white hairs, light or dark ticking, frosty or smudgy effects, and
167
as near the same shade over all surfaces as possible, due allowance be-ing made for a much lighter shade of color on the belly, over the posterior surface of the thighs, on the flanks and for all surfaces where the skin is made free to permit motion of joints.
CONDITION
The coat should be even, smooth and glossy; the flesh should be firm and solid; the health the best possible.
Particular Considerations
HEAD
Type—Head to be medium full from top to bottom with well filled face and jaws, presenting a slight curvature between the eyes and nose, but not so marked as to resemble a fish hook appearance.

Suggestions for Applying the Standard
DESIGNED FOR THE USE OF AMATEURES, STUDENT JUDGES AND REGISTRARS—CUTTING FOR DEFECTS
No specimen should be cut less than one-half a point in any section In which a defect is found; they may be cut to the full number of points provided for in the section in relation to either type or color.
Seniors that are over or under the standard type measurements should be cut according to the diviation, this rule to apply to the specimen as a whole and to each of its sections.
Ear lacing shall cut in proportion to its extent and distinctness.
Light or dark ticking shall be cut severely whenever found.
Stray white hairs on other than belly and inside of legs or on hind feet shall be severely cut in proportion to their extent.
171
Shadow spots on the front feet or other parts where solid color has so far been perfected shall be cut according to their extent.
Hutch stains should be cut in proportion to the effect they have on the specimen and its general looks.
Poor condition of coat shall be cut according to the season of the cut in proportion to its severity, with due allowance being made for moulting specimens and nursing does, in which case they deserve a reasonable benefit of the doubt.
Decision of Contests
Rule One—Where two specimens are competing, one of which has poor type and good color, while the other has good type and poor color the one having the best type shall win.
Rule Two—In contests between specimens that are equal in type; the one having the best color shall win.

NOTE
The ideal color in a Gray. (White and Black). The white is always referred to as the silvering. The black being termed the color. At the tip of the fur the color should be a rich blue black, with plenty of life and lustre in it.
The under color (when the fur is blown aside), should be of a blue shade and extend as far towards the roots of the fur as possible. Be sure not to get or encourage an under color or pale, smoky shade, or a fur which is almost white next to the skin. There should be no brown or rusty tinge on the feet or body.
Fawns—Should be of a deep, bright orange shade, extending as far down towards the skin as possible. The color should extend over the body, head, ears, feet and tail. There should be no suspicion of brickiness about the color of a Silver Fawn, neither should it have a gray tinge.
Browns—There are really four colors instead of two. The essential color is the deep, bright chestnut and should extend as far down towards the skin as possible. The bottom color should be a slaty blue, deep and bright, and should not show anywhere except in the bottom half of the fur. Next comes the silvering or white hairs, which should be evenly distributed among the colored ones. Then comes the ticking which should be even all over the rabbit. On the surface of the fur, brown, white and black must be in evidence and should be in equal proportion.
Silver Blue Rabbit
Color—The Silver Blue Rabbit should be a deep rich blue color evenly silvered throughout similar to the Silver Gray.
Under Color—Deep blue down to skin.

“MEAT FOR YOUR TABLE”
In one of Judge Fehr's books, he writes that “we” who are at the disadvantage of severe winters and extreme hot summers should not be envious but rather glad that we can get new breeding stock from our neighbors in California, since
California’s Ideal Climate enables one to raise and
produce better rabbits.
If you could see our general stock of
HIMALAYANS HAVANAS FRENCH SILVERS AMERICAN BLUES WHITE BEVERENS and
FLEMISH GIANTS you would immediately confirm his statement.

Our foundation stock is from the best Chinchillas blood in England. Bred and selected for us by Mr. T. J. Ambrose, and are descendants from such noted champions as Sir Mervyn, Sir Nigel, Boston Surprise, My Diar’e and Westwood, Sir William, Dams-Beauty of Leicestershire daughter of Pauline, Lady Victoria Percy’s noted winning dam, Annette, My Fancy, and Silver Fleece.
These does are headed by the best stud buck we can get and his breeder, Mr. Ambrose, claims he is one of the best Chinchillas bred in 1925—Sire, Sir Mervyn. Dam, The Countess.

Chinchillas and White Beverens
WE HAVE SOME FOR SALE
IMPORTED AND DOMESTIC STOCK
CHINCHILLAS
Chinchilla Rabbits Have Taken America by Storm. Only a few years old—still, at most of the shows we find more Chinchillas than of any other breed. As to quality of our Chinchillas, we unhesitatingly say that the show room tells. IT PROVES THAT WE HAVE THE STOCK as our winnings surpass those of any other breeder on the American continent.
That Famous “Sta Chin Champ
We Bred and Raised That Remarkable Rabbit in our own rabbitries. “Sta Chin Champ,” the best buck ever exhibited in America -a buck that has to his credit 13 winnings under five of America's leading judges a buck that, so far. has been in a class by himself not only in the show room, but as an outstanding individual specimen.
Our Customers—They Win, Too
We Have Other Big Winnings, Too. We do not exhibit at small shows without competition- we show and we win at the largest shows. In fact, it is seldom that a Chinchilla shown by us fails to place.
Everywhere Our Customers Win
with stock purchased from us or with stock raised from the stock they bought of us. Whether we show or whether our customers show prizes are won just the same. That’s because of QUALITY STOCK—FIRST AND ALWAYS.
We have on hand at all times stock that is fit to show that will always give a good account of themselves.
WHITE BEVERENS
This Is Comparatively a New Rabbit so far as America is concerned. We were the first to import them into this country. It is a white rabbit with pale blue eyes—the fur is wonderful soft texture, and the hair is about two inches long, very dense and thick, and particularly attractive, as an outstanding feature of this new breed.
Shown at the Colorado Show
We Exhibited Some of Our Best Specimens at the recent Colorado Springs Convention, and they caused quite a sensation. Judges from all over the country were very much impressed by the appearance of these rabbits, and pronounced them a wonderful addition to fur rabbits, and a splendid future for them.
They weight from 7 to 8 pounds which makes them an ideal breed. There are but few really good specimens in America at this time. We believe we have the best, and are importing some every month, and can supply some of this stock (in a limited way ) to those who are interested.
Write Us for Further Details
This is the Age of Fur Rabbits— They are the foundation of a permanent rabbit industry. The leading meat rabbit breeders claim they can get something for the fur, they can then make a bigger profit on the meat. Better investigate about this White-Beveren rabbit right now if you wish to make some money supplying breeding stock to take care of future demands.
