Californian History

The Californian was developed in the early 1920s by George West in Southern California by crossing the offspring of Himalayan x Chinchilla with New Zealand Whites. The purpose of this breed was to be big and meaty with good quality fur.

The breed did not become popular for at least 15 years after its development and now the Californian rabbit is the second most popular meat-producing breed in the world (after the New Zealand rabbit).

The fur quality has also made it a popular breed as a pet and for showing.

Californian Behaviour

Californians have a calm and friendly temperament which has seen them rise in popularity as a pet.

Californian Varieties

Californians are completely white apart from their ears, nose, feet, and tail, which are black, blue, chocolate, or lilac.
