SATIN rabbit breed basic information

Adult Size :  Bucks 8.5-10.5 lbs (3.9 - 4.8 kg),  Does 9 to 11 lbs (4.1 - 5.0 kg) DESCRIPTION : The Satin resulted from a genetic mutation found first in a litter of Havanas. Satin fur appears more brilliant in color compared to normal furred rabbits because the hair shaft has a smaller diameter and the hair is also more transparent. They are a commercial type rabbit, with one of the best meat to bone ratios. Information Source:   Publication #1250 Version 12/08  4-H Rabbit Manual
