This is a rare breed from SW France (Aquitaine region). They come in black and blue otter colours, and are a hardy type with a strong constitution and a gentle disposition: feisty but sweet.
I breed primarily the black otter, as this is the original type. They are said to reach 4.25kg; my adults are all between 3.6 and 3.9 kg. I feed them on garden greens, grass, and hay, plus a small amount of high-quality pellets.
The kits that are for sale (ready to go now) were vaccinated with Eravac at 30 days, so they won't need vaccinating again against RHDV2 till Sept 2021.
I've included two pictures of one of the young ones currently for sale, and one picture of an adult so you can see what they're like when they're older.
Happy to send more photos to anyone interested.

The advertiser should only release the rabbits when they are 8 weeks old or older. They should be responsible enough to know that separating the rabbit from the mother earlier results in medical and behavioural issues.
