NZW and Rex breeders in nth Scotland?
« on: November 27, 2017, 01:57:46 pm »
Does anyone know some breeders to use for NZW and Rex breeds (for meat) here in the Morayshire area?

I am keen to get all my research done and kit bought ready for starting next year. Thanks in advance

I know of someone near Cornhill in Aberdeenshire if that is any good.
Our holding has Anglo Nubian and British Toggenburg goats, Gotland sheep, Franconian Geese, Blue Swedish ducks, a whole load of mongrel hens and two semi-feral children.

Thanks for the quick reply. That's not that far from me. I can get there no problem.

Will be next year I'm buying as I want to get all the hutches and equipment in place first.

On a side note. I read the californian is a better meat rabbit than the NZW. Would this be a good breed to cross with a Rex?

I'm not sure if she comes on here very often it is @JulieWall . Try a PM to her. If you have no joy I'll contact her.
