We are pleased to be raising the #1 rare breed in the U.S.! Glad to be doing our part to keep Blanc de Hotot going!

Every three years a “rare breed” list is released. We’ve been raising three of the 15 rare breeds until now… And with the release of this list we now have two! Cinnamon and Silver Fox are making a come back!

What is the Rare Breeds List?
Here is the short version
#1 is most rare, #16 is less rare

    Rare breeds are fun! We raise American Chinchillas and they’ve made quite a comeback in our area. For the past couple of years we’ve consistently had 25 or more on the tables!

      That’s awesome! I’m looking forward to a similar response to Blanc de Hotot around here – we already seen many more silver fox and Cinnamons!

        We have a few Silver Fox and Cinnamons here, but I NEVER seen any Blanc de Hotots. Every so often I’ll see Dwarf Hotots.
