Beauty Of Animal | Chinchilla  | The chinchilla rabbit was originally bred to be a meat rabbit that often weighs in at over 10 lbs.  They are good breeders and produce an average of between seven and ten babies per litter.  They are shorter and stockier than some of the other breeds and have a very nice rounded back that produces longer tenderloins.  Chinchilla rabbits do not require regular grooming.

The Giant Chinchilla Rabbit is one of the few rabbit breeds that was created in America. Before the English breed known as the Chinchilla Giaganta, which incidentally, corresponds to the so called "Heavy-Weight" or American Chinchilla and not to be our own being exibited in shows throughout the Middle West.  They caused and still are causing a sensation wherever they are shown.  The first Giant Chinchilla was born in Kansas City, Missouri, on Christmas Day in 1921.   Her very proud creator was Edward H. Stahl.   She was exhibited the following year and was called the Million Dollar Princess.  Now the breed is called the Million Dollar Rabbit.   Stahl perfected this breed by using over weight Chinchillas and White Flemish Giants,  just to name a couple of breeds used.  The Giant Chinchilla has been purebred for over 45 years.

The ideal Giant Chinchilla should weigh, when fully mature, 13-14 pounds for bucks. Does at maturity should weigh 14-15 pounds.  It is a proven fact that rabbits that weigh from 12-15 pounds at maturity have generally been accepted as the ideal meat producing rabbit.
